Joseph is a facilitator with a wide range of experience in both ancient musical practices and modern electronic music. Joseph draws upon his studies of music and consciousness to bring a current of organic texture, subtle harmonics, and warm melodies to the rhythmic cycle of Sentient Rhythms.
Joseph is currently a student of sound healing and human development at Prescott college, where he has developed a unique curriculum dedicated to the application and integration of eastern and western approaches to sound, psychology, and spirituality. Joseph’s approach to music and facilitation have been shaped by his years of formal study in world music, including: Ghanaian drumming, South Indian rhythm, and a year long trip to Australia where he learned to play the Yadaki under a range of teachers including aboriginal master Alan Dargin.
Joseph began facilitating transformative music events with the Sacred Garden in 2001, a weekly event that combined live DJing, movement, and yoga. Since then he has performed at festivals at home and abroad, facilitated rites of passage, developed the music program for an experiential wilderness program in Hawaii, and is now focused on the development of Sentient Rhythms.

Marlene Koncewicz is a recent graduate of Prescott College. Growing up in Connecticut, she relocated to Northern Arizona in 2008, to complete her degree in Photography. While attending Prescott College, Marlene met Joseph and has since collaborated on many projects with him. Sentient Rhythms was born out of their passion for music and movement. They wanted something much more than just the typical bar scene.
Marlene started dancing as a way to relive stress and as an experiment, to create a weekly ritual of exercise for herself. She found that by creating Sentient Rhythms it allowed her to have that weekly structure she needed, without the barriers of formal instruction.
