Now for some harmonics.

Accompanied by a note that said simply “huge beautiful sound waves weaving in and out of phase . . . everything is vibration . . .,” this video arrived via a dear old friend.

Mighty good stuff. Interesting how they run the wands around the bowls to keep the sound going.

This is how this piece is described at the artist’s site:

“So Ham”, based on the six-pointed star, visually represents the sound of OM considered to be the sound of creation. You will want to join us in the So Ham breath, the prayer of life bridging body to spirit as we sound the Vedic creation story.

A lot going on in that summary. Ancient stuff. Need to listen a bit more to connect properly to those old Vedician concepts.

And this is their mantra, it seems… it is the only text on their homepage. Says a lot, though.:

“…the moment you notice that you are just an instrument of the Divine,

… the moment you become like a hollow flute,

… the wind will blow thru you and there will be music.”

I can dig it. It would be nice to able to relax the mind enough so that these swirling, phasing acoustical vibrations could sink in and do their stuff. A good goal… will work on that!

Ah well… enjoy!

Peace.
