To begin the event, the artist behind Arms and Sleepers, Mirza Ramic, will show his short documentary, To Tell a Ghost (run time: 12 minutes), which embarks on a journey of remembrance, loss and healing through music. To Tell a Ghost follows Bosnian-American musician Mirza Ramic of the electronic music group Arms and Sleepers, as he returns to his home city of Mostar in an attempt to process the losses he suffered as a refugee of the Bosnian War. Mirza will give a short talk and Q&A after the film.

 

The yoga class will be a multi-sensory yoga, music, and art experience guided by the international yoga teacher and visual artist Lana Vogestad of YNDI Yoga with live music performance by Berlin-based Arms and Sleepers.

This will be an immersive yoga class with live music, video projection and atmospheric lighting to enhance the transformational experience you have on the mat. The yoga practice will be an invigorating vinyasa fusing together different disciplines to awaken, strengthen and soothe the body, mind and soul. It will close with a guided meditation. All are welcome.

  • All level practice
  • Bring a mat and water bottle
  • Towel and a block are optional

About Arms and Sleepers:

Arms and Sleepers is the electronic music act founded in Boston, Massachusetts in 2006, formerly comprising Max Lewis and Mirza Ramic. In recent years, Lewis has become a less active member leaving Arms and Sleepers to continue with Ramic as the sole official member. Over the years, the group has amassed over 30 releases, 2,000 live performances, and countless TV and film music placements in their 15-year history. 2020 was Arms and Sleepers’ busiest year yet, with the release of a 6-part conceptual music series that included 3 full-length albums and 3 EPs. In 2021, Arms and Sleepers celebrated its 15th anniversary with a slew of re-releases and anniversary editions. 2022 will see the release of a new full-length record, Arms and Sleepers’ 13th official studio album.

Since 2006, the group has explored trip-hop, electronica, downtempo, ambient, hip-hop, and subtle pop with deftness and grace. Arms and Sleepers’ creative output has been vast: 12 full-length albums, 15 EPs, and a plethora of singles and remixes. The duo has remixed the likes of Emancipator, Robot Koch, Blockhead, Yppah, Sun Glitters, Caspian, Helios, Ef, From Indian Lakes, and many others, and has collaborated with numerous prominent artists including Tom Brosseau of Fat Cat Records, Serengeti of Anticon, and Philip Jamieson of Caspian, among others. Victor Ferreira of Sun Glitters has been a close collaborator over the last half a decade, co-producing and mixing the majority of the group’s recent releases. Ramic, who has been the group’s sole live performer since 2013, has taken Arms and Sleepers to stages across the world with concerts in North and Central America, Europe, and Asia. The group has also seen its diverse music catalog licensed by Apple, Amazon, Vice, HBO, Showtime, PBS, National Geographic, United Airlines, and countless others. Over the years, Arms and Sleepers has received glowing coverage from a variety of music outlets, including Earmilk, XLR8R, NPR, Huffington Post, Bandcamp Daily, The Line Of Best Fit, and Clash.

With a prolific and busy decade and a half, Arms and Sleepers has not showed any signs of slowing down. 2022 will bring a new album and a return to active post-pandemic touring, in addition to continued remix and collaborative projects. Such high rate of creative output has also coincided with Ramic co-founding Future Archive Recordings, an artist-run record label that has released music from the likes of Blockhead, Yppah, Sun Glitters, il:lo, Poldoore, and others. With a long and active history in the music industry, Arms and Sleepers has carved out its own unique place within the underground electronic music scene, building a loyal following along the way.
