This Week From Hearts of Space: PGM 934 RESONANT BRONZE

i1
About this program from Hearts of Space Stephen Hill tells us,

“Like a cooling harmonic vapor descending from the Himalayan plateau and the Buddhist cultures of Tibet and Nepal, traditional instruments of the metallophone family — singing bowls, bells, gongs and cymbals — are celebrated for their rare alloys, tonal purity, and uncanny psychological power.

Introduced to the west in 1971 in a classic recording by the pioneering Tibetan Bells ensemble led by HENRY WOLFF and NANCY HENNINGS, they used traditional instruments to create a new music, both artistic and contemplative — a healing antidote to the often chaotic sounds of our urban environment and contemporary soundscape.

Over the last 40 years, these unique instruments have become a calling for a small group of dedicated contemplative musicians. On this transmission of Hearts of KASpace, we immerse ourselves once again in their timeless tones, on a program called RESONANT BRONZE. Music is by RMA MOFFETT, BENJAMIN IOBST, HIMALAYAN BELLS, and 33 BOWLS.
