The Ambient Complex | Live Ambient Music with Gongs and Crystal Bowls


by M H April 21, 2023

This year, in pursuit of the perfect sound healing content for our adoring fans and supporters, we added a new video series that we're calling The Ambient Complex. It features live ambient musical performances that combine guitars and synthesizers with gongs, crystal bowls, and other instruments from our vast library of sound healing tools. 

The intention is to explore the boundary between the world of contemporary or traditional composition and the more spiritually-inclined world of sound therapy and healing. From improvisational performances to pre-arranged compositions with added accompaniment, our current set of performances offers a wide exploration of this approach to ambient music. 

We've put together a playlist over on YouTube where you can watch and listen to all of the performances so far and keep up with the latest installments as they get added over time. Check out the playlist below, then subscribe to our channel on YouTube for more videos like this.

Are you a musician? Have you released recordings? Do you have experience playing live? If this sounds like you and you're planning to tour through our area in the Midwest (Nebraska), contact us with links to your music and website and we can arrange a date and time to collaborate on an Ambient Complex session with you. 

We look forward to expanding the walls of the Ambient Complex with you!

Gongs of the Nahua and Azteca

"Four times daily the music of chililitli (copper disks), of cornets, flutes, conch shells, and of a metal gong struck with metal hammer, sounded from the ninth story of this temple, calling the King to prayer. In time, this whole temple to the ‘unseen god’ came to be called chililitli in honor of its tintinnabulation."
