We are blessed at The Sound Temple to have Sophie Moleta join us locally from Fremantle, Perth Western Australia to perform here in the Perth Hills as part of our annual ‘Common Threads Woven Through Community’ Project.
Sophie Moleta is a New Zealand born songwriter, composer and teaching artist. She has played music all her life from age 4 (born into a musical family – her mother was a classical accompanist and her first music teacher) and in the last 17 years worked as a performing pianist, singer songwriter in her own right. She has inspired numerous students to develop and learn through her passion for teaching piano and music.
She released her first solo album “Trust” in 1998, which was picked up in Europe and recorded. Her second album “Dive” was recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios and signed to BMG. She then lived in Paris and toured France in 1999-2000.
Since then Sophie has recorded and released 7 solo albums and worked with different electronic music producers locally and Internationally (UK).
Sophie uses The Mandala Room here at The Sound Temple to teach her private music students.
Common Threads Woven Through Community is a month long community engagement project which includes topics of integrating sustainability, creativity, and traditional hand-crafted wisdom of the ages.
Our 2020 theme embraces the inter connection of our living world – the seen and unseen “The Pollination of Life” exploring the underlying connections between artists, creatives, sustainable enterprises and movements. As we all carry a thread that collaboratively weaves the health and wellbeing of our collective future on this planet.
These events are designed to share art and craft forms and exchange knowledge, to open participants up to a new way of life, they encourage the questioning of our thought patterns, they support the dissolving of old belief systems bringing a sense of belonging. You will feel deeply inspired by being part of a continuing impulse of considerable change.
