- Meditation -
Gongs are amongst the oldest musical instruments
in the world dating back to the second millenium AD and possibly longer.
Throughout history gongs have accompanied religious ceremonies, govenment
functions, songs, orchestras and theatre performances particularly in Asia.
Although still used in these ways, today the applications in which gongs can
accompany different musical situations is endless.
Now gongs can be heard with countless artists,
instruments, bands and other contemporary musical ensembles as well as orchesras
and theatre companies everywhere. The addition of gongs both in the live music
arena and the recording studio have brought another dimension of colourful
creative options to the musical boiling pot.
Other than music, gongs are widely used
for meditation, spiritual healing and are great additions around the home or
business as a centerpiece, chime or even a funky door bell.
