Chambers of AWE
Chambers of AWE 


Combining the power of sound,

wisdom traditions, and cutting-edge technology to facilitate

awe-inducing experiences, inner transformations, and healing.

Chambers of AWE is an innovative multimedia production company that fills planetariums with 360º audio field recordings and imagery from powerful sacred spaces in the world, and combines that with CGI and AI generated content.


Our productions deepen our relationship with the natural world and help people reconnect to the wisdom and power of what it means to be human - as we transition into a world embedded with augmented and artificial intelligence.

At the core of these productions is the use of ceremonial musical instruments from ancient traditions to modern craftsmanship. These, along with modern instruments, are made with the intention to connect us to the ‘unseen’ world and the mystery of the Universe. 

By augmenting these sounds with cutting-edge technology we enhance some harmonics that we could otherwise not hear. This elaboration creates immersive environments with a vast spectrum of frequencies and resonances perceptible through our bones, cells, and other physical receptors. 

In these settings music becomes experiential - the body and the mind merge with the sound, traveling beyond the fields of cognitive perceptions to create experiences of various states of consciousness, inner transformations, and wellbeing.

Music Awakens what is Asleep in Us


Chambers of AWE are rooted in 30+ years of studies and initiations in ancient traditions and modern schools of wisdom, as well as the direct observation of nature. 


At the core of these productions is the use of ceremonial instruments from ancient traditions and unique modern craftsmanship. These instruments are made with the intention to transit into different states of consciousness, access inner guidance, and connect as a community.


We utilizes cutting-edge technology to augment some of those natural sources of sound, creating immersive environments with a vast spectrum of frequencies and resonances perceptible through our bones, cells, and other meta-sensory receptors. In these settings music becomes experiential.


The immersive 360º visuals give a deeper layer of introspection, providing a lens that our naked eyes alone cannot have. This allows people to look at the vastness of reality with new eyes, seeing the ordinary life in extraordinary ways.

Bringing AWE Back to Us

A key feature of Chambers of AWE is the use of audio and video field recordings made in sacred places in the world, which help us rebalance our relationship with nature and reconnect to the wisdom of previous civilizations.


In our modern times we live isolated, and in an environment filled with electronic sounds and compressed digital frequencies, which have drastically reduced the emergent properties of sound and music.


In nature nothing is isolated or compressed therefore acoustic sources of sound have a much richer spectrum of frequencies, harmonics, and textures which activate our brain and body in multidimensional ways. Chambers of AWE bring back ancient sounds and lost frequencies as sources of physical, mental, and spiritual nourishment.

Our Next Experiential Show for Planetariums


An Immersive Journey into the Magic of Life

Each one of us perceives reality in a unique way. The word qualia refers to your internal, subjective experiences of reality. Your inner sensations, images, feelings, and thoughts are your unique qualia - the qualitative aspect of how you perceive the world around you. Any experience you are having right now is qualia.


QUALIA is an immersive sound and visual journey into the magic of life. Music and visuals become storytellers but you are the one creating the plot. You become the creator of your own experience, conceiving realities that only you can perceive. QUALIA is an invitation to open doors within you that have been forgotten, awakening human abilities that are dormant and yet ready to be activated.


Conceived to take you on a journey, Laura uses the 5 Elements structure - earth, water, fire, wind, and space - as a pathway into grounding, connecting, envisioning, harmonizing, and integrating. It is up to you to experience QUALIA as a transformative journey, or an immersion into beauty, a booster for creativity, a physical, mental, and emotional release, or a joyful and meaningful time to share with your friends and beloved ones.


The music score is made with ceremonial and modern instruments from around the globe. Some of those acoustic sources are augmented to create unique drones and harmonics, giving to the compositions a contemporary style. With a similar approach, the 360º visuals will combine sources from nature, ancient sacred sites, and human creations, along with CGI and AI generated content.

Evolution is the Result of Cooperation

In order to build a sustainable growth engine that allows us to develop and scale high impact experiences of AWE around the world, we are combining the mission-driven focus of a non-profit organization with the financial and operational benefits of a for-profit company. 

Our goal is to raise funds to create an AWE Lab in the Bay Area in which we will develop flagship shows to be distributed over the next 5 years across 50 planetariums. This will set the stage for a regenerative phase of growth and impact.

At the AWE Lab, we will also conduct research to deepen the content of our Chambers of AWE, and will host leadership retreats to ripple the impact of our work in diverse communities and industries.

Staged world premiere at


Prague Congress Center - Czech Republic

Oct. 30 - Nov. 2, 2018

Devcon is the annual Ethereum conference for designers, developers, researchers and artists. The Ethereum Foundation hosts Devcon to educate and empower our community to build decentralized applications, and to bring Ethereum protocols, tools, and culture to the world. 


This is a conference for builders: designers, UX researchers, smart contract devs, blockchain researchers, client implementers, test engineers, infrastructure operators, community organizers, and even artists in the community. 

Behind the Scenes of Chambers Of AWE
An Interview with Laura Inserra during the world premier performed in Prague for DevCon4, the Ethereum Foundation's conference 2018.

Using Music & Cutting Edge Technology for
Immersive & Transformative Experiences

Chambers of AWE was premiered in 2018 in Prague during a large cryptocurrency conference, when Laura transformed for four days a forum hall into a decompression room, creating a sound and lighting reactive installation. Participants were entering an invisible but palpable 60 foot diameter sphere of sound created by an ambisonic system of 16 speakers and 4 subwoofers.


Laura and her live set was in the center of the sphere with 8 mics, each one connected to 2 speakers, plus 2 mics connected to the whole sound system. This allowed her to map and create live sound architectures in addition to her pre-recorded tracks.


The ongoing intertwined pre-recorded and live music created a striking immersive sound environment. In addition, she offered twice a day guided immersive sound experiences.

An Article by Michael Ellsberg

Why do the most forward-thinking tech conferences 

hire Laura Inserra to create their decompression rooms?


Heading into the 2020s, the most forward-looking corporate conferences create decompression lounges where attendees can relax and recharge for a few minutes before diving back in headlong to the intensity and bustle of the conference. However, most decompression lounges, are paltry affairs with perhaps a little ambient music playing off an iPod, a tea station, and some diffused lights.

At DevCon4, the main annual meeting for the Ethereum community, the Foundation wanted something more immersive, more artistic, and frankly, more decompressive and recharging. The foundation wanted participants not just to have a relaxing and restorative experience, but one that would also uplift them, and bring them into deeper resonance with their bodies - thus getting more in touch with their creative potential. That’s why the Ethereum Foundation hired sound alchemist Laura Inserra, creator of Chambers of AWE (Acoustic Waves Emergence).
