Creating a Gong is a dedication to the deeper meaning of the structured, focused vibrations which unfold into sound upon playing the Gong and thus have an effect on human beings.
Not only do you hear the Gong sound but you also feel its vibrations on and inside your body. The resulting feelings reach into the depths of your psyche. When you add the visual aspect, the trembling shape of the Gong, and the physical contact to the Gong by the mallet or the bare hand, dimensions of impressions ensue which can be experienced by anyone. These impressions can be discovered and experienced ever anew by composers and musicians and then to the listener; and they communicated to the individual who interacts with Gongs personally.
The Gong maker begins with a round disc of bronze alloy containing a sound potency which is as of yet still resting within itself; it can be shaped into frequency ranges and expressions of sound.
