Magical Flutes at RBY: Torrey Talks About the Sound Bath

How was the last Sound Bath? Did you enjoy it?
The last Sound Bath was such a wonderful event! In the past, I have attended Sound Baths as a participant and love the meditative effects of the music. I really enjoy collaborating with Kate Towell and being able to offer this relaxing experience to others!

What instrument do you play?
For a Sound Bath, I play two beautiful Native American flutes. They are both made out of cedar which gives them their soft, yet haunting tone quality. One of the flutes is a single barrel end-blown flute, similar to a recorder. The other is a drone flute, meaning it has two barrels side by side. The drone side produces only one note while the other side plays multiple notes. This allows it to sound as though two flutes are playing at once! The timbre of these Native American flutes melds really well with the sounds of the Himalayan Singing Bowls played by Kate. It makes for a very enchanting hour of calming music for the Sound Bath.

What is your musical background?
I am also a classically-trained professional flutist. I have a thriving studio of private flute students, teach at Edmonds Community College, and regularly perform at weddings and other events in the area.

Will there be another Sound Bath soon?
Yes! We are thrilled that these Sound Baths are so popular! In order for everyone to have the best experience possible, we must limit the attendance. We schedule the Sound Baths to celebrate the shifts in seasons, so there is one this Sunday, June 21st for the Summer Solstice. The next one is already scheduled for September 20th, for the upcoming fall equinox. We recommend you sign up early as the Sound Baths tend to sell out!
