Svaram - Pyramid Thali

  • The naturally induced gentle swinging pendulum movements bring the sound effect into any – preferably outdoor – environments and can completely free and shift stagnant energies into harmonious vibrations and nourishing frequencies. With exercise and practice the simple pendulum movements can be explored and brought into flowing lemniscates and circles and intensifies the impact of spatial and bio-sensory sound perception, opening an extraordinary state of fluidity and potential metamorphosis.

    It is gently tapped with the selected mallet and moved through the space or over the body in conscious movements-gestures of clearing, dispersing and invoking positive vibrations.

  • Initiated in 2003 as a grassroots community, rural development project in Tamil Nadu (India),  Svaram has been recognised by the UN Initiative “Music as a Global Resource” as one of its first 50 projects worldwide. The open association and team of over 50 local artisans, trainees, international volunteers and professionals has always retained its emphasis on the human element, its heritage and prospect of evolutionary change and positive progress.

    Initially focusing on communication-social-and craft-skill trainings with the practical core of hands on work with different materials like wood, metals, clay, bamboo and seeds/shells for instrument building, extensive explorations and a communal discovery process on the ‘magic of sound’ stimulated the growth of the team in ever unfolding and often surprising directions, creating a natural enthusiasm in everyone involved for the chosen work with the mystery and magic of sound!
