Dear friends of the Gong, We would like to introduce you to our series of gongs, created by the joined forces of Tone of life (Tom Soltron Czartoryski) and Sona Sound (Johannes
Heimrath), and share with you this new look and sound of these hand crafted SilverNickel Gongs. As well as the Gongs listed bellow, we are constantly innovating in the field of sound to achieve the greatest potential of healing overtones from our creations.
The Dance Gong is our finest creation in small, hand held gongs so far. It is small 22” (55.5 cm) and weighs only 4kg. This Gong is easy to carry and dance with during performances and gong bath. The rope is fitted with a comfortable wooden handle to make this Gong comfortable to hold in the hand. Very light and with an amazing range of sound for such a small instrument. As this Gong is crafted with a tight surface it does not splash easily!
THERAPEUTIC 4 ELEMENT SERIES
The therapeutic 4 element series is an inspired SilverNickel Gong concept which we have been working with since 2013. Masterminded by Johannes Heimrath and Tom Soltron Czartoryski, each of these Gongs are crafted differently to produce a sound which evokes the feelings associated with it’s element. This is of course subjective.
However through research done using these Gongs in therapeutic settings and Gong baths the feedback has been conclusive with regards to their creation. All four elements, fire, air (cosmo), earth and water (shemoon) come in 30” (76cm) with the exception of cosmo (air) and earth, which are also available in 42” (105cm) and 62” (157cm).
WATER GONG (SHEMOON)
Water has a deep sound with magic bells ringing here and there, bringing stillness and calm and a sense of peace and nurture. Like a flowing stream. Water is the element associated with emotions and feelings.
This Gong is full of vitality, alive and warm. Like fire it demands awareness and subtlety to bring out it’s most vibrant beauty. It crackles and sparks and dances like fire enlivening our sense. The element Fire is the lifeforce which animates all living forms. Associated with the urge to express from inside the Self.
AIR (COSMO) GONG
Sounds cosmic, universal, beautiful, open and rich. The Element Air is associated with the capacity to detach the self and view something objectively, with distance and perspective.
This Gong sounds deep, from the core of mother earth. When played with subtlety and awareness the vach choir breaks into song. The sound transforms from the ethereal to the material realms, tangible and full. The element Earth is associated with the plane of material existence, the condensation of spirit into concrete form.
AIR (COSMO) GONG / EARTH GONG (42” AND 62”)
The symphony of symphonies, a million solar systems within a million universes, the drop and the ocean. With one strike of the mallet the Vach Choir begins to sing its enchanting song in waves of beauty which touch your heart and soul taking you beyond the beyond… in the great Gong tone of life that reverberates within us… Samadhi, Nirvana, Bliss…
