This was the first time I had recorded a sound object other than singing bowls or gongs for Sound Bath Sessions. It was interesting to hear how tuning forks is used as an instrument. Multiple forks can be held to create complex frequencies for new experiences.
Sound Bath 018: [Listen here]
In this track she held one or two forks at the same time- sometimes in one ear, sometimes in both- creating this enveloping sound that pierces the brain. As the strike of the forks by a rubber mallet activate them, the room slowly disappears as they come closer to your ears for a few seconds. She activates them again as they weaken over time twisting and turning them to create a swirling sensation.
