The globalization of Covid-19 makes human beings face the challenges brought by the context of the normalization of the epidemic. How to seek soul’s tranquility under this state is the topic we need to confront and explore. The estrangement or alienation between people is nothing but normal. Living in a fast-paced city with high population density tends to make people easily caught up in anxiety and many other emotions. If people at this moment feel the need of certain artistic forms which could surpass language and have the power to penetrate into our heart, then music, without any doubts, is one of them. Music therapy for this reason is irreplaceable by any other psychotherapy. The concept of right or wrong (binary opposition) does not exist in the field of emotional healing. It is a matter of balance: how to decide if we have maintained a good balance between body and mind? Each of us needs to know our own emotional state. To experience the music and sound in our city life. Slow the pace, return to ourselves. To this end, we specially invite professional local music teams and societies dedicated in physical and psychological therapies to join hands with 10 Fantasia-A Creative Industries Incubator hence starting this unique journey of arts with brand new immersive experience. Let us feel the music and sound of nature in city: slow the pace, return to ourselves.
The event is divided into the following two parts: Lectures & Dialogues and Musical Experience.
