Ann Dyer mines the exhibition, Yoga: The Art of Transformation (on view at the Asian Art Museum from Feb. 21 - May 25, 2014) to create a sensory performance that calls on the power of voice, word and sound expressed in yoga philosophies and texts throughout the ages.

Dyer, Director of the Vak Choir of "everyday" voices, finds inspiration in the vast array of usages of sound that span the yoga tradition — including Vedic mantra, Tantric bija mantras, kirtan, naada yoga, sanskrit, and the roots of classical Indian music — to create contemporary works that reconnect participants and audience alike with the innate power of sound as a tool of transformation.
