dublab: TONALISM 2010 from matt amato on Vimeo.

Open wide to a new world. Expansive radiance awaits in this environment of elevation. We have entered a glowing landscape of transformational tones. The horizon line fades and every edge softens. Natural laws dissolve as we float on pure sound particles. Vibration has become the new vision and your being beams brightly, blurring into harmonic hum with the universe. “You” and “I” are no longer. This is all together. Transformation complete.

The aforementioned experience may seem like a dream, and it surely is, but this dream flashed into reality as dublab voyaged up the west coast this past March to present Tonalism, an all-night ambient happening, at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. Along the way Golden Hits, Pharaohs and Suzanne Kraft played shows in Oakland, communed aloft in the branches of tree houses and enjoyed fun infused moments along the golden coast.

Matt Amato, Ben Kutsko and Grant Leuchtner of the the Masses documented the journey on a few super compact Digital Harinezumi cameras. Enjoy this film documenting the Tonalism 2010 west coast tour in saturated sights and sounds.
