A voyage of discovery.
I heard One Of These Days by Sculpture Music on the 22 July Introducing Mixtape. I was immediately attracted by its ethereal, haunting quality
Once on-line I discovered more about the source of these other-worldly sounds. The Hang is a Swiss, lap-size metallic musical instrument. It’s tempting to call it a drum, but its makers – Panart – consider this a misnomer. It looks as though a general term for these instruments is handpans. The Halo is similar, and is made by Pantheon Steel in the USA.
Once on youtube I discovered that other people play the Hang
And other people play the Halo
