About Frank Klank
"Somewhere at the end of the late 90’s the sound of singing bowls started to trigger me. The sound of the bowls caught me, and out of curiosity I bought singing bowls. The woman in the shop told me: ‘take all the time you need for choosing a singing bowl. The bowls will choose you’. I truly experienced this, and took the time I needed. What a range of sounds I heard from 1 bowl. Some sounds touched me, other didn’t-- but it was interesting, and challenging. Hours later, I went home with 4 singing bowls.
Now, about 16 years later, after having a multiply of 4 singing bowls and after discovering loads of new sounds and feelings that happened in my body playing the bowls, I am still wondered about the influences the bowls can have.
I invite you to be curious about what sound can do and to feel what moves inside you if you listen to the sound of the singing bowls. Singing bowls make their own music, music makes vibrations and vibration means moving water. What happens with you and in your body, when knowing our body exists about 60% of water. If water moves a lot can happen, also in a human body.
