Humming Together Apart on 23 August

This is such a charming no-computer-needed collaborative singing initiative for pandemic times that we just have to spread the word! 😀

Bonnie Barnett is inviting everyone to hum together apart from wherever you are, on Sunday, 23 August at 21:00 European time! Read the invitation in Bonnie’s words below.

A socially-distant participatory vocal event
                                                    by BONNIE BARNETT

SUNDAY, AUGUST 23, 2020 at:
HST (Hawaii) – 9 a.m.
PDT – NoonEDT – 3 p.m.
U.K. – 8 p.m.
Europe – 9 p.m.
St. Petersburg – 10 p.m.
Australia – MONDAY at 6 a.m.

You are invited to breathe and tone from wherever you are during the performance time (starting at the listed time, and continuing for about 15 minutes). Imagine your breath and tone reaching out and mixing with other people’s breaths and tones, surrounding the planet with a sound bath of vibration.  See the earth and visualize the vibrating vocal energy buzzing us all to community and health.

18 participants wrote in after the 3rd event on June 28, 2020 and let me know their locations – from Russia to New York to Michigan to Pennsylvania to Illinois to Colorado to California… Please document your geographical location during your participation by contacting me through my website – — to help create a sound map. I really look forward to hearing from you.
And … Here is another option for any of you who are interested.  Even though this 4th event is still an ephemeral, conceptual event, if you feel like recording your sounds, you are invited to upload them as an mp3 to this folder:

please name your file:

and remember, please upload mp3’s only, thanks!  The sounds quality of the recording doesn’t matter. You can use a zoom recorder, your laptop microphone, your cell phone… anything! Ulrich Krieger will mix the sounds that we receive…
