Acutonics Planetary Hand Chimes
In Ceremony, Ritual and Sound Journeys
This class will introduce the hand chimes and their location in the Acutonics® system. We will address the importance of choosing the right mallet, and methods for holding two or three at a time. We will further explore the use of Planetary Hand Chimes in both private and group ritual and sound journeys.
Our inquiry includes chime combinations and intervals, focusing on thirds, fifths, and octaves. We will discuss how to use the chimes in ceremonies and for ritual celebrations, including ones honouring the cycles of the Earth, Sun, Moon, and other planet alignments.
We will discuss creating a therapeutic sound journey and how the chimes fit in the soundscape.
Having a variety of Acutonics® hand chimes so you can represent fifths, octaves and thirds.
