Andrea began Sonic Butterfly Productions in 2013, to unite her talents and create transformational experiences. Sonic Butterfly is Andrea’s design of long-string harp and is based on the concept of transformation, like the butterfly, re-creating ourselves into the full expression of who we truly are, as well as the transformation of a space into an instrument and of our energy into higher states of being. These transformational experiences are more than performances, as they engage the audience, inviting them to be participants, allowing them to transcend limitation and inspiring their truth, their creativity, and their authentic self to fly. The 2 resonating chambers with butterfly wing shaped projection screens, “projection wings,” have 2 full octaves of strings spanning out on each side. Each string is at minimum 60ft, and all 26 strings expand out over the audience creating a full sensory experience. The long-strings are played running the fingers along the strings, thus creating a healing longitudinal vibration. The vibration moves through the molecules of the body and the ascending overtones lift one’s energy, transmuting lower vibration into higher states of being.
