Last February 23 members of the media and special guests were invited to the charming premises of Sound serenity studios to participate in a very unusual CD launch event:
Participants were able to experience an immersive musical and physical relaxation experience while listening to the harpist Caroline Lizotte’s latest album “LIZOTTE PLAYS LIZOTTE” in good condition weightlessnesscomfortably suspended in one of the At Serenity Sound Suspended loft hammocks!
As the artist explains:
” LIZOTTE plays LIZOTTE is my life path, influenced by the music that goes through my head. As permanent as the lines drawn in my palms, the composition is an integral part of my existence. Music has always lived with me since childhood and I have sworn to always feed the flame that burns in me… a bit like keeping a sacred fire alive.
“In this first album, the harp is in the spotlight, as strong as an entire orchestra. You will embark on a journey of my personal stories and visions of unique characters.
Together we will travel through my galaxy.
The album, offered in physical and digital form, will be available from February 23
