Samkhmem are performers of the Sacred Eternal Drone – a perpetual vibration that has always been and will always continue. This is both a performance fiction and a genuine proposition, without contradiction.
Samekhmem protect the Ark of Silence, the source of un-sound that creates space for the Sacred Eternal Drone to flow continuously through time.
By participating in the sacrament, a rite of separation, the congregation enter into the collective mystery of the Sacred Eternal Drone. Samekhmem offer a meditative environment for the audience’s inner journey, before words, before music.
