Michael & Candida have been using sound as a healing art for the past 20 years

& have created these recordings of their four symphonic gongs to

bring consciousness to the world of sound & vibration.

 

A gong is a perfect brotherhood of tones perfectly united and blended, as a vehicle, or vahan,

for some cosmic entity. In it the law of cohesion 'manifests fully. It is a concentric and organic body,

through which the energy of sound flows uninterrupted; and in some cases at least, it has not only an

elemental soul born out of the cohesive principle, but also a spiritual soul as well brought down

into its mass by the concentrated devotion of its maker.

 

The artisans of old spent years casting and fashioning some temple gongs

so that the tone of the gong might be a revelation to all the devo­tees

who would hear it filling the holy places.

A quote from the late Dane Rudhyar via Don Conreaux

 

Recorded and mixed at Sound 23 studio London January 4th to 9th 2005
