Sound Bath:

Pamela Martinez is a Reiki master, educator, multi-instrumentalist and composer who creates music under the moniker Teletextile. Her “Björk-like" sound (The Boston Globe) moves from vocal layering and “electronic wizardry” (Metronome Magazine) to “dense, stormy guitar, piano, and electronics" (Time Out New York). Martinez has toured extensively in the US, Europe, the UK, and Asia. As a genre-hopping performer and musician, Martinez has performed violin at Carnegie Hall with a Carnatic Indian music ensemble, sang in San Francisco's historic Fillmore Theater and takes part in performance art happenings in New York City. Her most recent directing and performing credits include Whisperlodge. The New York Times dubbed Whisperlodge “an unusual mix of theater and therapy” and has been featured in BuzzFeed, The Atlantic, Netflix and more with acclaim. Martinez passes on the craft of music to her community by teaching Reiki, violin, voice, piano, guitar, music theory and sound meditation to all ages and levels of students privately and at community education centers most recently as faculty at Brooklyn Music School, sound bath practitioner at Maha Rose Center for Healing (NYC) and Unlimited Thought Life Enrichment Center (SATX).
