Tibetan singing bowls ftw!! If there ever was a contest, it's definitely over now.

Can't wait for the pics, TIP!

I think the nerdiest thing I've ever done was dancing (or leaping around in an attempt to dance) the dance from "Birdhouse in Your Soul", at a TMBG concert.

^Yeah, her stuff is stellar, isn't it? I think my faves are the slugs, too, but I also love the ones with little level bubbles and such.

4 auntie



here is a picture of my bowls


I lied, I only have four bowls. The fifth one i gave to my father. He uses it to stock his guitar picks, wiimote and spare change.

The choice of background books is not fortuitous and a nerdgasm in itself (Curtis Roads' Microsound and Computer Music Tutorial, Bart Kosko's Noise)

The little ankle bells were bought in Bali, the bowls come from India (Goa and New Delhi).

My favorite is the black bowl, it was made following a "new school" design of tibetan bowls.

I didn't get around to finding their individual pitches, must get back to you on that !
