At the nadir of winter, the time of
deepest cold and lowest natural activity, the sound of the resonant
percussion family of instruments takes on an uncanny appeal. The
metallophones — bells, bowls, gongs, chimes, and cymbals — speak
eloquently in the chilled, quiet air. Whether used for religious
ceremonies in ancient mountain cultures like Tibet, for sound healing
and therapeutic work, or for creative experimental music — these
instruments have a mysterious elegance and power.
On this transmission of Hearts of Space, another resonant percussion journey, on a program called WINTERTONES. Music is by DEUTER, MICKEY HART, HENRY WOLFF & NANCY HENNINGS, KARMA MOFFETT, TRYSHE DHEVNEY, 33 BOWLS, and RIVER GUERGUERIAN.
