Svaram - Shruti Thali
Svaram offers 2 sizes of Meditation/Table Bells on crafted wooden stands to decorate and enhance your living environment. They have a unique resonance and immediately captivate the listener, opening new vistas of touching sound perception. The experience cannot be described, but has to be felt! We are offering the plates as single pieces in a wooden frame which can be used as a table, or meditation bell. We are also offering these plates in ensemble sets.
The primal set is pentatonic over two octaves, but we have been working with different customized arrangements. Svaram is proud to be able to offer them now as part of the New Waves series in Just Intonation tunings, based on the Indian Shruti System.
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!
