The last weekend in January, a few artmonks gathered at a private home in Kenginston, CA, to experiment with a new form of the Artmonk Retreat. The idea was to share silence and contemplation and from that space collaborate on a shared project: creating a recording. This concept was developed within the context of the first Art Monastic Cycle: Death, darkness, no-form, the void, the mystery. As such we practiced the Vigils service each night, singing Gregorian chant at midnight.
The culmination of the retreat was the first Artmonk vow ceremony.
