CAMDEN – Instrument designer and sound therapist Jim Doble invites the audience to bring a chair, blanket or yoga mat to relax while listening to the transformative sounds of his resonating instruments.

The event is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. on Friday, October 15 at the Camden Amphitheater on Atlantic Avenue.

Doble will be joined by Forest Weston, who will play a variety of didgeridoos.

During the outdoor group “sound baths”, Doble primarily uses gongs, as well as an assortment of singing bowls, tuning forks and instruments he has created. Doble also appreciates that the amphitheater is a place “where the sound of birds and the gentle rustling of the sea breeze through the trees add to the aural ambiance,” according to a press release from the Camden Public Library.

The event is by optional donation. Part of the donations will benefit the library.

The library encourages registration with Doble prior to attending so that attendees can be notified if the program is canceled. He can be contacted at [email protected] or 207-785-2212.

Doble collected and manufactured a variety of large gongs and other instruments to use both in his private practice of sound therapy, as well as for playing for group sound baths.
