Resonating is an action depending on an upcoming impulse which provides the meaning for a vibratory answering. It is derived from the word lat. ‘resonare’, put together from ‘re’ = back(-wards); again, and ‘sonare’ = sound; tone.

Resonance can unfold in many ways. You can resonate to something through your body, your cells, answering through movement or just getting in a certain mood triggered by the impulse. A material can start to vibrate or even resonate with the source. And of course the frequencies of sounds and music always has an impact on the surrounding, objects and living things. To step into a resonance is not always something one can control. Most of the time it just happens, but in Music and Movement one is mostly longing for some echo and resonance on the way to find dis-/harmony.
