Expand your perceptions.

Each moment, events take place that the human eye cannot perceive because these occurrences are too small, too large, too fast, too slow or beyond the spectrum of visible light. This 1979 National Geographic special classic video shows us that ‘hidden’ world – the sight of water crystallizing into ice, a single atom’s movement within solid matter, a bullet speeding towards its target. Different sizes, different spectrum, and even different rates of speed can illuminate the underlying processes that are beyond the limits of our eyes and will forever alter your understanding and perception of the world.

The study of visible sound and vibration.

The study of wave phenomena and vibration was pioneered by the Swiss physician and Renaissance man Hans Jenny. Inspired by Rudolf Steiner, Dr. Jenny’s penetrating observations of distinct types of patterns in nature led to these dramatic experiments animating inert substances with audible sound. The video is the first of two films made by Hans Jenny around 1970, which comprise this program entitled Cymatics. A half-hour of visually astounding images portray how unseen forces can shape, transform and destroy the seemingly solid structures that we see all about us. The stunning array of experiments seen in these two films are actual physical phenomena evolving before our eyes – as audible sound excites various liquids, powders, pastes and iron filings into processes which mimic atomic, geologic, biological, solar and even galactic shapes and movements.

Caution: No computer-generated images appear in these films. Viewing this remarkable scientific artistry can profoundly alter the way you view your world!

One World Music.

One Giant Leap have created a unique music, TV and film project. What About Me? is the culmination of 4 years work visiting 50 global locations collecting wisdom and musical jewels. It’s an inspiring and alarming look at our collective insanity: how we are ego-driven, needy in relationships, insatiable in desire, addicted to status, wounded by childhood and unable to stop thinking, but how we still manage to be inspired and creative.

The backbone of the project is the music that One Giant Leap make. They start with pre-composed backing tracks in a laptop studio. The music grows as each layer is added, seamlessly mixing international stars like Alanis Morissette, KD Lang and Michael Franti, with Bedouin Musicians, Chinese rappers, Gabonese Pygmies, Tuvan throat singers, Egyptian folk musicians, Japanese taiko drummers. In addition, they manage to capture a unique take on the collective human condition, helped along by contributions from, among others, Noam Chomsky, Eckhart Tolle, Stephen Fry, Will Young, Maxi Jazz, Tim Robbins, Billy Connolly and Michael Stipe.

What globalization really looks like and what it is doing to the Earth.

This powerful film brings together art critic John Berger, author of “Ways of Seeing”, and world-renowned photographer Sebastião Salgado for a discussion about the power of photographic images to inform and inspire. As they peruse Salgado’s book, “Migrations”, a project that took him to 43 countries in order to document the experiences of people pushed from their homes and traditions to cities and their margins – slums and streets and refugee camps, their intimate and wide-ranging conversation, inter-cut with Salgado’s photographs, explores the deeper meanings of Salgado’s images, addressing both their artistic and emotional qualities and their political function as a critique of globalization.

Three is the mystery, come from the great one.
Hear, and Light on thee will dawn.
These are the equilibrium, source of creation:
one God, one Truth, one point of freedom.
