Baron von Spirit is a DJ, Music Remixer, and Event Producer in service of conscious movement, drawing on his own practice of ecstatic dance and contact improvisation for inspiration.
He’s known for his eclectic and wide-ranging musical taste, but even more so for bringing songs that are fresh and unique. He loves to mix electronic and organic beats, and depending upon the venue will play anything from angelic ambient to uptempo electro. To each set he brings a rough palette of musical ideas--the final journey is created as a response to what he is feeling in communion with the field of dancers--and always finds a way to integrate a few novel remixes of beloved classics.
Spirit is a resident DJ for Ecstatic Dance Oakland, Ecstatic Dance Palo Alto, and Ecstatic Dance Fairfax. He also plays regularly at other venues on the west coast and private events. He founded Dance Immersion at Harbin Hot Springs and co-founded Ecstatic Dance Corvallis. He has collaborated in performance with Donna DeLory, Kyrstyn Pixton, eO, Gabriel Gold, and others.
