We Salute You



The Tibetan Singing Bowls that I played at The Promenade Festival Launch are Reiki blessed and chosen for their octave tones  to produce the healing and calming vibration of  the infinity sound that they are known to produce. 

This sound has been measured by an oscillator and scientists have shown that the computerised graphic of the vibration symbol produced is also that produced by the cosmos surrounding all the planets in our solar system. It is the same vibration. I like to think of it as the very voice of the  Universe.

I chose this sound shape because the 4 men will be forever in our hearts, just as those who risk their lives' for the safety of everyone are also remembered for infinity.

I also chose it because of our infinite relationship with the elements such as the sea that brings us  joy and yet such pain with it's tides.


The words of the mantra that I was commissioned to write & perform at The Promenade Festival in Tramore, Ireland on 4th July, are taken from an Ethnographic Poem that I wrote at the launch of the inaugural Promenade Festival last year, 2014. 

That is to say, they are the words of the people who loved and worked alongside the 4 men who were killed during the rescue that took their lives'.




We salute you
4 brothers, Goodbye
We salute you
Land, sea and sky

Together hand in hand
Forever we will stand
Tramore remembers and ..

We salute you
4 brothers brave
We salute you
And all you've saved

Together hand in hand
Forever we will stand
Tramore remembers and ..

We salute you
We salute you
We salute you
We salute you

Om Namaha
Om Namaha
Om Namaha
Om Namaha

(Sanskrit Translation: 
with the entirety of the Universe, I/we salute you)
