This week’s MotD theme: The Round of Music

Architectural & fine art photographer and sound therapy practitioner, Marian Kraus, of Delamora.life, displays his “cockpit” for performing his sound healing sessions, which include round gongs, round singing bowls, and round mallet heads.

About gongs, Marian states:

The Gong is one of man’s most powerful and oldest transformational and therapeutic instruments. It has been used for ritual, ceremony, prayer, and meditation since the Bronze Age. While its sound is relaxing and calming, centering and energizing, transforming and healing, gongs have been used in yoga, sound meditation, and vibrational therapy from the distant past to present.

From his youtube channel, listen to a meditative visual and sonic journey utilizing gongs, Himalayan singing bowls, a djembe drum and didgeridoo; video include Marian’s photography.

To view what kind of an effect sound plays on our human cells (spoiler alert…they look like mandalas), check out their Cymatics page.

Inspiration for Today

I am equally excited about the possibilities that music making holds for all people and it’s ability to heal what seems to me a chronic imbalance in modern life.   – Paul Winter
