  • Introducing the Zenko ELEMENTALS: Earth / Air / Fire / Water in 432 Hz

    Introducing the Zenko ELEMENTALS: Earth / Air / Fire / Water in 432 Hz

    Heard of Koshi Chimes?

    (Or maybe you have one!)


    These popular hanging chimes in 432 Hz from France have become "sound mediation" essential tools in recent years. We were then of course thrilled when The Metal Sounds Company decided to create a set of Zenko drum "Elementals" in corresponding tunings to match the Koshis. We knew the sound-healing folks would love these small, lightweight, beautifully sweet bell-like melodic drums that could be incorporated so seamlessly into a sound-bath setup. 

      

    At half the size (and half the price-point) of the larger Zenko Tongue-Drums, our community has nicknamed these the "baby turtles" and shown them lots of love so far. (And while they're tuned in 432 Hz to match the Koshis, we will have versions in 440 hz available as well soon.)

    Klangfarben Tubular Chimes with Lydia Hwang

    San Francisco based Sound practitioner Lydia Hwang recently gave our Monochord Monday Meetup Zoom group a super treat by demonstrating how she layers the Monolina Monochords along with the Klangfarben Hanging Chimes. (Join our meetup group to access.) She also offered an Instagram Live Interview on @weplaywelltogether where she shared her story of how she came to work with sound after being diagnosed with autoimmune disease.

    Lydia alchemizes mediums of sound and color into a uniquely powerful healing practice called “Color Soul” intuitive readings. Apart from her private healing practice in the San Francisco Bay Area, Lydia leads color and sound workshops, is a guest sound healer at Ratna Ling retreat center offering life enhancing sound journeys for group retreats, and co-facilitates yoga and sound events. Musically, she is one of the founding members of Savasana Sound, performing group concerts, sound journeys, and recorded albums (soon to be released).
    Klangfarben
    Wolfgang Deinert, created Klangfarben in 1989, in Germany and has been handcrafting his precision Bell chimes and tubular gongs ever since. These instruments open up a new level of working with sound, the instruments are made with high quality brass.
    .
    The precision tuning of a set is done on the same day so the chime sets stay in tune together. Metal is a material that changes with temperature so the tuning aspect is very important, then the gong chimes are finished by hand polishing.
