From Emily: "I believe that the way to best make change in the world begins with ourselves and that the direction of the world is a direct reflection of us. As we raise our personal  frequency  through sound, we become a greater positive influence for others. It is my lifelong mission to inspire, touch, and be a positive catalyst for all who I have the pleasure to meet, and may that too, be a transformative experience for all who hear STATE OF BEING." 


STATE OF BEING is a touring concert experience for one vocalist (and electronics) featuring commissions and new compositions. This is not a concert intended for normal listening. This is a concert to experience and participate in (one song includes audience participation). STATE OF BEING is designed to help listeners shift from one state of being to the next and to explore their inner world. It uses Max/MSP, Ableton Live, Loop Pedal, and soon: Mimu gloves.
This music asks us to look more deeply at our inner-most self, and invites us to take our next step in shifting our inner state of being within the concert. This contains themes of psychology patterns, healing trauma, technology, and the challenge of finding out who we really are if we look more deeply into the soul and how this effects our current mental state. The audience is brought into a unique sound world and new reality invited to experience the music as an experience where they can make a genuine change. 


In addition to singing onstage, Emily has a deeper mission and vision to raise the frequency of humanity, and the power that sound has to do this. As each person raises their internal frequency, and, for example - steps into their truth beyond the limitations of their past experiences, we allow a more free version of the self to exist which better impacts everyone we meet. Emily is an advocate for expansion on a soul level beyond just the mind. This music will invite listeners to examine their inner world for greater growth and to shift their current "state of being." This production is a gateway to her creation: The MoonRising Platform (


The program is continuously evolving to be up to date with the current news and to fit the city it is performed in.


The programmed pieces ask us to reflect personally and to ask and answer questions we have not previously.
