compositions© 2007 M Ormiston & C Valentino Recorded & Produced at Chamber 23 Studios, April/May 2007
Radiant Voyages contains five original compositions using Tibetan/Himalayan Singing Bowls based on the five elements, Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether. They can be used as a meditation reflecting upon the nature of these elements and as a deep listening connecting us to the amazing sonic qualities that Singing Bowls possess. Tibetan/Himalayan singing bowls ring with an ancient power that is a mystery to most of us. They possibly have their roots in the animistic or shamanic religions of the Nepalese and Tibetan border areas of the Himalayas, where master metalsmiths fashioned the bowls proportedly from five or seven precious metals.
Michael and Candida have used their unique collection of Singing Bowls for Meditation, Therapeutic Sound Massages ,Deep Listening and in performance worldwide.
They facilitate Workshops, Therapy Sessions & Meditation Evenings.
