This compendious but very readable volume by one of the legends of Tibetan Singing Bowl playing should quickly establish itself as the definitive study. Particularly useful is the wide scope of the book, which includes not just Tibetan bowls and the techniques used to sound them but Chinese bells, drilbu and ding-sha, the planets, elements and chakras, cymatics, overtones and partials, nada yoga, mantras, symbolism and the astrology of the bowls, their relation to western music, Pythagoras and Newton, and the psychic integrity and true awareness of the bowl user. There is almost nothing that is not here. Although Frank Perry was one of the earliest practitioners of Himalayan Bowls in the 1970s, his music has remained profoundly experimental, so that there are techniques in this book not to be found elsewhere, alongside the clearest and most detailed analysis of how to 'play' the bowls, a combination of simple and technical that shows in Perry's bestselling albums Deep Peace and Celestial Harmonies. Frank's writing is also a revelation of his personal contact with living Himalayan Masters, his immersion in esoteric traditions, meditation and mysticism, and his understanding of other art forms such as the paintings of Nicholas Roerich, where he is an expert.Biographie de l'auteur :
Already an international percussionist when he discovered singing bowls, Frank Perry is widely mentioned in books on percussion and improvisation, including those by Derek Bailey and Bettine/Taylor. He has influenced musicians such as Keith Tippett, Alex Cline and Tim Wheater, has played with Paul Kossoff and recorded with Brian Eno and is familiar with radio, television and modern media. Frank is a master of conventional improvisation, deep meditation, psychic awareness and esoteric study and is the author of many articles, but this is his first book. Out of the spotlight Frank is a true ascetic, for whom the sound experience he is both hearing and creating is paramount.
