About Jackson Englund
Throughout his life, Jackson Englund has pursued his passion for music professionally, working as a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter, DJ, music producer, and event producer. He believes in combining sound and space to elevate the spectators' engagement with the environment in which the sound is received.
In the fall of 2022, Jackson and his father Morgan went to upstate New York to study Sound Meditation with Alexandre Tannouse and David Shamesh, which led Jackson to uncover his passion for aiding others through their own experience. The combination of Jackson's musical background, his fondness for creating unique experiences, and his passion for facilitating others make his practice a unique and impactful space for self-discovery and growth.
Jackson views similarities between hosting parties and Sound Meditations, as they both bring people together to seek connection. The key distinction is that Sound Meditations concentrate on inward contemplation, offering a space for individuals to process and find harmony within themselves. Jackson and his father have now come together to create an organization that provides a safe and supportive environment for people to heal through sound and meditation. He has faith that providing this service will contribute to creating a harmonious world of understanding and connectivity.
About Asuka Anastacia Ogawa
Asuka Anastacia Ogawa (b. 1988, Tokyo, Japan) spent much of her childhood in Tokyo, Japan. When she was three years old, Ogawa moved from this vertical urban backdrop to rural Brazil, where she passed a handful of formative early years amongst wandering farm animals and rushing waterfalls. The artist later relocated to Sweden when she was a teen, where she attended high school, and soon thereafter she moved to London to pursue her BFA from Central Saint Martins. After having her first solo show at Henry Taylor’s studio in Los Angeles, CA in 2017, she had a solo show at Blum & Poe, Tokyo in 2020, Blum & Poe, Los Angeles in 2021, and Blum & Poe, New York in 2022. Her work is in the collection of the Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas, TX, the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Durham NC, and X Museum, Beijing, China. She is currently based in Los Angeles, CA and New York, NY.
