Laura Inserra
Founder & CCO

Laura Inserra is a a world renowned sound alchemist and technician of the sacred - sound healer, educator, multi-instrumentalist, public speaker, and multimedia producer. She lives and creates at the confluence of music, wisdom schools, and cutting-edge technology.


Both a self-taught and classically trained musician, her career has many facets — multi-instrumentalist, composer, sound healer, teacher, artistic director, and producer. Her work is based on a combination of immersive sound experiences, creative explorations, personal development tools, and teachings from various schools of wisdom.


A world-renowned Hang musician, Laura plays a large variety of rare ancient and modern instruments from around the world - the Zapotec clay flutes, the Mongolian jaw harp, the Tibetan bowls, the Laotian khen, the Australian didgeridoo, the African djembe, different shamanic drums, numerous percussions, and rare custom-made instruments. 


Laura composes in various musical languages and performs in many different settings — from intimate spaces to large venues seating thousands. She utilizes cutting-edge technology to augment the natural sources of her instruments, creating Chambers of AWE, immersive sonic environments which facilitate meta-sensory experiences, deep transformations, and wellbeing. 


Laura grew up on the volcanic island of Sicily and has been exploring the ‘invisible world' of sound since her youngest years. In her work she brings her personal life experiences and her training in various wisdom schools - like Alchemy, Vedic Traditions, Daoism, mythology, psychology, shamanism, folk music, alternative medicines, western science as well as the direct observation of nature. 


For decades, she has been focusing her research on the transformative and healing power of sound. Combining her intimate knowledge of music with her studies of ancient schools of wisdom, she developed a practice called MetaMusic Healing, a unique blend of sound healing, ancient wisdom practices, and shamanic techniques. Meta means beyond, transcendent. In this context music becomes experiential, personalized medicine, and a metaphor of life. 


She uses this method in one-on-one sessions as well as in leadership retreats, community gatherings, and sacred ceremonies. Thousands of people worldwide, either in person or on livestreams, have been exposed to her work. The enduring impact she is having on these different communities is profound and so needed in these times. 


Laura has been teaching worldwide since her twenties increasing awareness of the vital importance of music and creativity in human lives as an inexhaustible source of inspiration, evolution, and regenerative living. In 2007 she founded and became the artistic director of Samavesha, a multidisciplinary performing art organization and become a community leader in this field, providing hundreds of immersive, interactive, and community based events around the SF Bay Area.


Laura uses music as a meaningful entertainment and interaction, as a booster for intuition and creativity, as a tool for inner transformation and spiritual guidance, and as a medicine for holistic healing and vitality. Her music speaks a universal language, telling stories without words. As a listener, you become the creator of your own experience, breaking the boundaries of your cognitive perception, connecting to your inner guidance, and accessing the vital force of nature.


She keeps refining her skills and expanding her wisdom to fulfill the purpose of her life-path. Both with individuals and groups, Laura creates opportunities for people to experience various states of consciousness, to connect to the pulse of life, and to learn tools for a regenerative living and healing.


Laura is the co-founder of Seeds of Gold Institute, a non-profit organization whose mission is to research and integrate ancient technology and schools of wisdom into modern life. The institute is dedicated to helping individuals, groups, and the global community in the journey of personal growth and collective evolution. 

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.

Scaling AWE Together


We invite you to join the Angels of AWE, a like-hearted and forward-looking group providing funds and resources to evoke what’s best in humans. Among this incredible community of luminary minds, we welcome you as aligned angel investor and business partner.

Chambers of AWE was 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.

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).


Artist Statement

When we are in ‘awe’ we naturally enter a state of mindfulness and presence with our whole body and senses. We naturally are in the 'here and now’. In Laura’s work the awe is created by ​Acoustic ​Waves ​Emergence.


As in alchemy and in nature, the ​emergent property​​ allows the whole to be greater than the sum of the parts, acquiring qualities that its parts do not have. In the digital era, we actually went in the other direction: as we created more compact and lighter formats (CDs, MP3s etc.), we cut off a lot of frequencies deemed ‘useless’ without realizing we were losing a lot of their inaudible, powerful impact.


There are frequencies our ears do not hear but that our bones, our cells, our mind perceive. On top of it, we are not being exposed as much to ancient acoustic sources of sound and instruments, which used to bring people into different states of consciousness. Those experiences were essential opportunities for healing, well-being, and transformation. After all, we are made of cells vibrating on different frequencies, which means we are ‘sound’. That is why those experiences allowed  people to amplify their senses and connect with the vast, holistic intelligence of their being and environment. These days, not only we have lost those experiences, but we live in an environment filled with disruptive frequencies and sounds. 

Chambers of AWE brings back those lost frequencies as sources of nourishment and tools to expand our senses, our body intelligence, our awareness. A lot of those sounds are in the lower frequency range. Many apps and devices use that range to generate states of relaxation, meditation, and enhanced creativity, yet those waves are made with computers using synthesizers and oscillators, which isolate the frequency in order to reproduce it. Nothing in nature is ‘isolated’. Acoustic sources of sound therefore have a much richer spectrum and texture of frequencies and harmonics (which no synthesizer can match), reaching and touching our system in a multidimensional way.

Lighting Concept

The Devcon4’s decompression room installation offered a calming atmosphere where a lush instrumental soundscape was augmented by a generative lighting experience. This room allowed guests to unplug (both metaphorically and literally), sit back, relax, and take time to breathe.

Thanks to the Aurora system by Limbic MediaLightswitch’s lighting installation followed the music in a unique way, combining traditional lighting design artistry with the capabilities of AI.

A central LED candelabra reached from the ground, in varying lengths, towards the ceiling, where a web of LED festoons reached out across the room.


As Laura Inserra’s music evolved, the AI will mapped the different sounds throughout the installation creating a unique pattern every time, following her mood and sound. Her multi- instrumental approach to meditation allows for an ever evolving palette to choose from, making this a very dynamic and enchanting room.

A lighting designer was on site to carefully select attributes for the AI to feed from, and as the day progresses the colors shifted, the patterns changed. The environment reflected the very human side of tech, and the need to relax, regenerate, and decompress from the pressures of the world.


Our goal is not to light a room per se but to create an environment where Laura Inserra’s music can encompass a wide range of senses, enveloping the attendees with sound and light while they catch a breath, relax, and revitalize themselves in one of the most unique meditation experiences.
