Murray Hidary

Composer and pianist Murray Hidary is the creator of the immersive music experience, MindTravel. His provocative, improvisational, real-time compositions with the piano and art projections, inspired by theoretical physics and wisdom traditions, take the audience on a transporting and expansive journey. It is an exploration in translating music into our daily thoughts, words and actions. To carry forward the lessons of music into our lives. To live with harmony, clarity and rhythm.

Murray has brought MindTravel to famed venues including Lincoln Center, The Theater at the Ace Hotel, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Grace Cathedral, The National Arts Club and festivals including Wanderlust, Carlsbad and Burning Man. He has also pioneered a live 'silent' piano headphone Mind Travel creating an immersive music experience. Mind Travel has been brought to audiences in theaters, beaches and parks including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Denver, New Orleans, London, Montauk, New Jersey, Miami, Aspen, Oxford, Malibu, Istanbul, Tel Aviv, Germany, Italy, Croatia and India.

Murray studied Music and Composition at New York University. He recently scored the music for the documentary REM about iconic architect Rem Koolhaas, directed by Tomas Koolhaas, which was premiered at the Venice Film Festival.

"MindTravel is an experience like no other. Imagine a concert pianist improvising beautiful, peaceful music with imagery in the background that matches the beauty of the music — combined, it is almost meditative or trancelike." - Jason Wachob, Founder of mindbodygreen
