RAV Vast - F# In Sen

  • A late evening in Kyoto is filled in with the sounds of softly touched koto strings, the rustle of kimono silk, and the songs of nightingales. Explore the ocean of magnificent sounds hidden under the azure blue surface of the In Sen RAV Vast!

    This RAV Vast is tuned in a well-known scale that was originally used in shamisen music that was later adapted for koto. It’s a traditional Japanese stringed musical instrument the ancestor of which was Chinese zither. This is the scale with the highest voice ever created by RAV Vast. The In Sen’s sonorous clean voice reminds of wind chimes.

    Just like many other oriental scales, In Sen provides a very distinctive sound that differs dramatically from western harmonies. There’s no division on major and minor modes in Japanese music as the scale intervals are totally different. Therefore, when playing the In Sen RAV Vast you can create the compositions that will have a more minor or major by changing the playing style and note progressions.

    The In Sen RAV Vast is a great source of inspiration for composing and improvisation. The intervals of this scale can sound unusual to the western ear but that’s what provides an opportunity to think outside the box and find something new. For this reason, we recommend this scale for intermediate and advanced handpan/tongue drum players who feel confident enough with basics and are ready to take the next step.
