Hi everyone! I just want to introduce myself and meet some of you! My name is Jamie and I play the planet gongs. I use them for group concerts (sound baths), yoga classes, and in private healing sessions. I've been playing them for about 9 years now and love it! I currently work with 8 of the planet gongs and the earth sound creation.

I look forward to "meeting" some of you! Have a wonderful day!
Jamie

Hi Jamie,

      Nice to meet you. Welcome to the forum! What planet gongs do you use? I use the 38" Sun, 32" Chiron, 32" Saturn, 26" Neptune, 24" Sidereal Moon. I used to own a "Nibiru" but I recently sold it. I also use Sound Creation gongs #2 (fire), #3 (earth), #3a (32" earth), #4 (water), #6 (moon), #7 (fight), #8 (head), #9 (chest), and #10 (abdomen). I have various other gongs as well. 

All the best,

Rob

Hi Jamie,

Welcome! I do sound immersion events and also solo performances that are of a more composed musical nature with gongs, bells and other metal percussion instruments. I don't own any planet gongs (yet), but next on my want list is a 32" Sound Creation Earth gong.

Nice to meet you Rob and Bill! I currently work with the Sun, Sidereal Moon, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, Neptune, Chiron and 38" sound creation Earth. I'm just about to order Uranus as well. I use crystal singing bowls as well but my passion is the gongs. Bill, your setup looks great. A sound creation gong will be an excellent complement to the other ones you have. Rob, where are you located?

Have a great day!
Jamie

Hi Jamie,

      Sounds like you have a great set-up! I'd love a 38" SC Earth one day. I'm located in Kamloops, BC, Canada. I love playing outdoors. I often set-up at parks or out in the little desert we have here. I work for a music shop and I'll be doing a gong evening there at the end of August. If interested, check out this 6 minute video that I'm featured in. All the best!

Rob.

PS: The tuned gong track you hear is called "Inner Light" and it's from an upcoming CD I have recorded.

Hi Rob! Awesome video! Thank you for sharing that. I know David Hickey....I played with him years ago when he did a tour in the states. I haven't played very much outdoors - most of my sound baths are at yoga studios or art centers. It is nice to have them outside though. I just ordered Uranus. Yay! I love getting new gongs! :-)
