Pam Gibson aka Yoga Pam has stepped out of the yoga studio and into a recording one as she prepares to launch her new CD ‘Clear Intentions’ in Robe later this month.
“It’s more a celebration than a launch… it’s more of a way for me to have an opportunity to say thank you to everyone who’s supported me… so bubbles and pizza on me!” Pam said.
The CD has been in the works for some years now.
“It’s been something that I’ve been asked to do for a long, long time and it’s taken me a few years to be able to go okay, let’s put my voice on it,”
Collaborating with Fijian-born didgeridoo player Jay Hoad, Pam said the process of recording the CD was fairly quick, and the process was quite organic.
“ I got there, Jay went into his soundproof area head phoned up, I was mic’d up, closed my eyes and that’s what came out! So that’s how it was recorded – it was completely unedited, unscripted, and it’s just whatever arrived.. in one take!”
Pam has been collaborating with Jay for some time now.
“Jay plays all around Australia, and internationally now, and I’d seen him around and I really liked his didgeridoo style.”
The CD also features singing bowl by Cher Driessen.
“One is a shorter relaxation track, but the longer one is the one I’m most proud of, as it’s a real meditation” Pam said.
Music can really enhance a yoga practice and help people focus, and that yoga can awaken all the senses she said.
“I think sound can really move you, sound can carry you to place,s it’s also something for you to focus on rather than thinking about what you’re going to do when you leave the room, that’s important to help create the space.”
Pam said the launch would be a great opportunity for yoga students across the region to meet each other.
The CD launch is happening on the Sunday May 29 at The Pizza Project in Robe.
