Tanweer Sacred Music Festival

In doing so, we empower the tribal cultures of the world by channeling revenues downstream to their respective communities so they may flourish. We achieve this through a festival that showcases ancestral music, wisdom, and crafts.

Totems: Reverent, Nourishing, Transformative

- Reverent: Through sacred sounds, we aim to create a sense of reverence and remembrance for the old ways, while also fostering unity and connection among all people.

- Nourishing: The festival emphasizes the importance of nourishing the body, mind, and spirit, with a focus on healthy food, self-care, and mindfulness practices.

- Transformative: The festival has the potential to be a transformative experience for attendees, allowing them to deepen their connection to their cultural roots and explore new ways of being.

Animation Art Direction

“Within & Without”

For this animation experience, we would like the visitors to have a holistic experience feeling grounded to the earth & connected to the universe.

Experiencing heightened senses, expansion of mind, and deeper connection with the body.

Art direction would be to incorporate elements of sacred geometry, fractals, the universal electromagnetic grid, elements of nature (wind, water, fire, earth), sacred geometry in insects, plants, spirit animals, and the universe.

We would like the visitors to experience an esoteric feel connected to the spiritual world beyond our physical 3D reality.

We would like the artist to create animations and tools that can be used to create moods according to the music being played at the moment.

The visual mapping will be projected on a mountain & main stage hence the artist would need to take this into consideration integration while proposing art direction.

To incorporate lighting design with elements of smoke and lasers.
