Edward Schocker’s Crossing Ensemble: Self_less
An ecstatic improvisation project

Self_Less is a new musical work by Edward Schocker and The Crossing Ensemble that examines our "sense of self" while questioning the uniformity of these perceived feelings. Incorporating live music from an cross-cultural music ensemble, projected abstract images and pre-recorded audio of stories from people who have had unique neuropsychological experiences (such as meditative states of being, out-of-body or near-death experiences, dementia and other experiences of separating the self from the body), Self_Less' mission is to create an artistic work that doesn't judge or try to explain these conditions, but allows us as audience to hear the reflections of people who experience these phenomena.
