It is the same light
that graces the dawn
blazes at noon
and bows to
the evening shadows
In truth the light
never leaves us
the darkest of night

Gabriel Gold is a San Francisco, CA based music composer, multi-media artist and environmental advocate.
Gold’s musical works, often site-specific to acoustically resonant and “sacred spaces", aim to merge the worlds of classical and modern composition with traditions of sacred music, intending to inspire thoughts of our relationship to "what is sacred?”, both, in regard to us as human beings and of our relationship to the natural world.
As a composer, Gold studied Music for Film Composition under Keith Heffner, colleague of Kitarō (喜多郎), and has released two full-length albums, “Halo” (2014); and “Live at Grace Cathedral” (2016), scored Mudita Arts Ballet’s “Prayer for Peace” (2013); Labayan Dance’s critically acclaimed, “Tears” (2014), and is currently working on a new album in Iceland, produced by Birgir Jón Birgisson (Sigur Ros, Bjork, Of Monsters & Men), which is set to release in Spring, 2020.
As a teacher and sound healer, Gold created and facilitates the longest running, weekly Sound Healing event (The Healing Voice Circle) in San Francisco (founded in 2012), facilitates Sound Healing experiences throughout the world and has personally supported thousands of people on the journey of developing a fulfilling relationship to their singing voices and through such, a deeper spiritual connection.
As a multi-media artist, Gold is a 2019 Artist in Residence at San Francisco’s revered Grace Cathedral, was a featured artist in MEDIATE Art Group’s 2015 Soundwave Biennial, and has had his works shown at renowned institutions throughout the world, including; the De Young Fine Art Museum (San Francisco, CA); California Academy of Sciences (San Francisco, CA); SÍM Gallery (Reykjavik, Iceland); Nordic House (Tórshavn, Faroe Islands); and Turku Kunsthalle (Turku, Finland).
As a performer, Gabriel has toured as a solo-act throughout much of the USA, Europe, & Australia, performing in renown venues including, Chartres Cathedral (Chartres, France), Barbican Centre (London, England) and Harpa Concert Hall (Reykjavik, Iceland).
When at home in the Bay Area, Gold performs regularly in collaboration with renowned yoga teacher Darren Main for Yoga on the Labyrinth, a weekly 700+ student class taught inside San Francisco's revered Grace Cathedral, as well as performing quarterly for the Labyrinth Walk Concert Series hosted there.
