Paiste Planetary Gongs
Transforming the solar system into sound
Swiss mathematician and musicologist Hans Cousto’s discovery of the Cosmic Octave was groundbreaking. His work (firmly grounded in mathematics and music), converts the whole solar system into sound, allowing us to hear the orbital frequencies of the planets. The differing orbital vibrations of each celestial body or planet (such as the Earth, Moon And Sun) manifest in an awe-inspiring array of different pitches and sounds.
This principle reflects the music of the spheres of ancient times, where sounds resonate in harmony with the cosmic cycles. The sound colour of Planetary Gongs is extremely mysterious and conveys an unusual, unfathomable atmosphere.
Cousto reveals how music is truly the language of the cosmos and of the natural world. By using the Cosmic Octave formula: f . 2n (= multiple doubling or halving of a certain frequency) Cousto has rediscovered the ancient knowledge of transferring astronomical periods into audible tones.
“When the person…is in tune with the cosmos, then the cosmos is resonating in the person. When you become aware of this, consciousness reaches cosmic dimensions” – Hans Cousto
A mystical instrument for music and healing
Handcrafted in Germany, Paiste Gongs are of the highest quality. When played with intention, the unique resonations of planetary gongs can create a wonderful soundscape, which may affect us in profound ways. They can encourage deep relaxation, experience subtle feelings and emotions and take us on a wonderful journey through sound.
Paiste Planet Gongs are often used by musicians and sound therapists for sound healing, and in gong baths, sound immersions, yoga studios and meditation retreats.
Planetary gongs have sound characteristics comparable to the Symphonic Gong. They range in diameters from 24” to 38”.
