The following description comes from the event organizer.

The Old Church invites you to be part of a series that celebrates intentional healing through sound, and creative visuals, and presence of mind. Each concert in the series is carefully booked to coincide with either the Full or New Moon. This sound bath on the evening of April 7th celebrates the New Moon happening on the morning of April 8th. 

Gregory Allison:

Gregory Allison creates with a single violin a sound that travels across great landscapes. He has toured the world with violin  in hand and is endlessly inspired by the instrument’s journey around the globe, especially it’s use in South Indian Classical music. His live performance blends the Indian Classical melodic improvisation with his classical sensibility as a film composer, offering the listener a sonic journey through time and space. 
He will performing his 2021 debut album Portal in its entirety, along with new compositions for amplified violin and string quartet. 

Gregory recently moved back to Portland after 5 years living in LA, where he started the record label and recording studio Holy Volcano. He has released three solo albums on the label and is currently collaborating with electronic composers to create ReWorked versions of the music from Portal.

Slow Meadow:

Slow Meadow is Houston multi-instrumentalist Matt Kidd. Kidd's releases as Slow Meadow have been celebrated by the New York Observer, NPR's Stephen Thompson, Echoes' John Diliberto, and who sampled Lachrymosia for the platinum-selling song  on his debut album, FREE 6LACK. In 2022, Kidd provided the original soundtrack to the  film, "My Mind & Me". Two years following 2017’s Costero, Slow Meadow returned with its third full-length album Happy Occident, a collection of textured ambient melodies. Fueled by the anxiety derivative of modern life and the frenetic and often uncertain state of these ever-changing times, Happy Occident provides music for reflection. A soundtrack to life’s contemplative moments, and an experience akin to mindfulness meditation.In 2021, Slow Meadow is back with Upstream Dream, its first wholly new music since 2020’s By the Ash Tree, which bookends a period of creative output that introduced Kidd’s vision of calming and meditative ambient music.
