Frank Perry on Tibetan Singing Bowls

Frank Perry is a leading expert in Tibetan singing bowls. He is a composer, performer, astrologer, artist, and healer and has invented musical instruments that are part of his set up which is made up of 100’s of percussion instruments, including gongs, bells, bowls, and metalophones. Covered in his book Himalayan Sound Revelations: The Complete Singing Bowl Book are no less than 250 different styles of bowl and over 100 techniques of drawing sound from them. Frank covers the wands and mallets used and how to choose them, associated instruments like ting-sha and drilbu, how to look after your bowls and what to watch for when buying them. Every sound you make from every bowl is a meditation, and Frank helps you understand what you are listening to and what you are connecting with. That may be one of the meditation Buddhas, or it may be a planet or star, or it may be a stimulation in one of your chakras. It is all here — the ability to make bowls the basis of your spiritual path and know yourself better.
