MindTravel AlUla

Mar 26, 2022

Composer and pianist Murray Hidary has crafted transformative, healing music and mindfulness experiences for audiences across the globe, which he has named MindTravel. This live-to-headphones 'silent' immersive music performance gave a unique individual journey to each guest while also creating a collective experience, set among the breathtaking views of AlUla. This event was the signature MindTravel experience, where music and mindfulness meet.

MindTravel AlUla
Communal gatherings in mesmerising outdoor spaces and the individual journey merged as audiences were invited into a MindTravel journey through wireless headphones. The improvisational, live-piano performance was broadcast directly into headphones to create a listening experience that was deeply personal, while also sharing a powerful moment in a community with others. Guests observed the majestic mountain surroundings, explored flowing movement to the music and shared moments with loved ones all while listening to a live performance through the headphones. This experience was all about finding the perfect balance of expanding ourselves as individuals and leveraging the energy of the group. In a unique setting such as this, guests had the opportunity to go deeper than ever before.
