Ignota Hosts: Earthly Love by Qenric—launch with Marcos Lutyens

Sunday 7 June, 10.00 PDT, 13.00 EDT, 18.00 BST

Ignota Hosts a hypnosis session and listening event to launch the debut album of recording artist Qenric, featuring artist and hypnotist Marcos Lutyens. During the online event, Marcos will use hypnotic techniques to induct participants into an inner journey and listening experience enhanced by select tracks from Qenric’s album, Earthly Love.

Qenric’s debut album is an open-hearted journey into the mysterious, cosmic nature of everyday Earthly Love. A tincture of dream pop and folk adorned with electronic details, the album plays at the border between the romantic and the transpersonal. Enhanced by immersive production and arrangement, Qenric’s thoughtful songwriting finds transcendence in the challenge of relating in complex times.

Headphones are recommended but not required.

Please note: You must provide your email address (not your phone number) to receive the zoom link BY EMAIL shortly ahead of the event.

About the artists

Qenric is the pseudonym of Kenric McDowell. Kenric is a regular conference keynote speaker and consultant to think-tanks and cultural institutions, helping groups connect artistic practice and technology production with larger traditions of human understanding. He co-leads the Artists + Machine Intelligence program at Google AI, bringing artists and philosophers together with AI researchers to develop artworks and research strategy around emerging artificial intelligence technology. 

Marcos Lutyens is as deeply versed in neuroscience, cognitive psychology, ecological systems, bacterial interaction, and many kinds of indigenous knowledges of the world at large. Fluent in three languages, he has an uncanny ability to empathize and to tap into the most receptive parts of the human spirit. 

Lutyens’ artistic practice targets the psychic and emotional well-being of his audiences by skillfully leading participants in meditative and hypnotic exercises that affect the deepest levels of their psyche. His works take form in installations, sculptures, drawings, short films, writings and performances.
