Christopher Willits and B&O Play Sound Bath
Experiences of being “inside the music,” together, have great social-emotional benefit for society. It’s similar to what happens in meditation or when someone is on psychedelics. Micheal Pollan goes into detail about this in his book “How to Change Your Mind.” The default mode network of the brain relaxes, allowing for new connections in the brain to be made. The analytical mind is provided a rest.

The result was absolute magic as attendees were engulfed in ambient sound textures that were as replenishing as they were reinvigorating. The B&O Play Sound Bath was a prime example of the progressive brand activations that take place at The Outpost. It showcased B&O Play’s quality products, design, relationships with musicians, and product versatility. It was truly a highlight of the weekend. Here’s more from the man himself about the experience, the technology, and his approach to sound.
Christopher is a musician, artist, and educator based in San Francisco who believes that music and deep listening can catalyze inner change. Focusing on three-dimensional ambient electronic music, created with processed guitar and voice, the weaving and folding of sound is designed to be within. Often overlapping with earth-inspired photos and videos he creates, the music has forged a world-wide audience that listens intently. Pioneering solo albums on 12k and Ghostly International, along with collaborations with Ryuichi Sakamoto, Tycho, Zach Hill and many others, has created a prolific and diverse catalog of sound. As an experienced educator, Christopher strives to illuminate people’s vision and creativity in music, art and life, and has lectured at many leading institutions in the world. Christopher also teaches meditation techniques that often accompany his music. Here’s more from him about the weekend and his approach to sound, music, and meditation.
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
