Gongs, bells and bowls. This trio of metal instruments pack a sonic and psychological punch way out of proportion with their utter simplicity.
Long revered for their role in religious ceremonies, almost magical in their ability to delight and entrance, they stand virtually alone in the resonant space between music and pure sound. They've been joined in recent years by the synthesizer. It's not simple, but it can create sounds unconstrained by the physical limitations of vibrating materials. As you'll hear...it's a marriage made in heaven.
On this transmission of HEARTS of SPACE, another journey in the resonant space of bells, bowls, gongs — and synthesizers, on a program called SACRED SINGING METALS.
Music and sound experiences are by XUMANTRA, HUMAN METRONOME and 33 TETRAGAMMON, STEVEN HALPERN, LIQUID BELLS, DEUTER, and KLAUS WIESE.
