This listing includes one set of two hanging bells and a mallet.
Andromeda Bells are handmade in the Netherlands by gong artist Jesse Blauwhof. Jesse began working with metal at a young age, later introduced to musical instruments like gongs through the work of Ton Akkermans at "Creation of Sound".
The Andromeda Large Double Bell Pair - Opening and Letting Go is an absolutely magical pair of large suspended bells. Their shared sound gives shape to silence, creating an astonishing atmosphere with their incredibly inviting tones. They are best played gently as to initiate a sound journey with their safe and warm sonic landscape.
The Larger Bell (Opening) has been made with the intention of opening meditations or gatherings in mindful presence. Its effect is to settle, to arrive in oneself, and leave the buzz of the daily world behind. It is incredibly grounding and soothing, thereby forming a basis on which to build.
The second, Smaller Bell (Letting Go) is forged to assist in transformation by letting go of that which needs to fall off. Like the serpent's skin that no longer fits it, at times we need to pass through moments where we can let something in us go so we can stand in the world afresh and be open to change.
This is a beautiful instrument to use at the beginning or end of your day in a moment of meditation. They are the perfect addition for percussionists as well as sound therapists and spiritual healers. Add this set to your toolkit today!
