German gongs are hand made primarily, production marks are very normal on the Copper Nickel gongs. This can include oxidisation(when metal is exposed to oxygen, oxidisation occurs leading to the development of patina). Light scuff marks from manual handling, and exposure to water(gongmaker’s sweat). The focus for the gong maker is upon tonal quality over aesthetic presentation.  Copper nickel blanks can arrive from the rolling mill, already marked. 


The Paiste ‘Bronze Gongs’ , a set of seven ‘inspired from & adaptations’ of the older Paiste ‘Esoteric’ Sound Creation set circa 1980’s. They are crafted from a different copper alloy(CuSn8). Nine were created, but two were witheld from release.

Learn to play gong in Perth.

Are you interested in learning as a gong practitioner?. I can offer you tuition in new and alternative ways to which you have been taught

Sound Therapists, I am available to work with you individually in a process orientated model of supported/ supervised self-inquiry. To how you positionyourself, how you make contact with your instruments and your relationship(s), with your clients and yourself. 

Working with the live data a client, can offer. In an experiental ‘Active/ present moment’ manner, rather than passive floor based therapy. 

I can work with yourself, developing your gong play and supporting awareness of, via supportive inquiry and exploration. Focus is turned towards yourself, the relationship between you/ your gongs/ your particpants.  Your level of ‘presence’ in the therapeutic environment could be an area we could choose to focus on. Resulting in a more contactful level of gong play.

An important element of therapy practice is the development of awareness, of ‘personal process’. How your own psychological ’emotional’ and ‘cognitive’ processes, can determine how you offer yourself in the therapeutic setting and how you practice your gong play. Meaning making is an important factor in how we live, beliefs and biases, cultural directives all contribute to how you or I position ourselves physically, emotionally and cognitively.

Empowerments to your own gong play can be discovered by exploring how we play and what we do.
