Conor Perreault

Human Flourishing explores the spiritual connectivity between people through the creation of tense sound environments in a variety of spaces.

Human Flourishing’s experimental sound horizons encourage inner reflection and spiritual connectivity to a world that seems isolated and cold. (New Haven CT)
