The Hang Balu enables a musical exchange in a collective, far away from expectations and pressure to perform. The Balu instruments offer themselves as a common denominator, as a universal language to which everyone has access. If you play collectively, you only need a small contribution from the individual player to create a complex network of sounds together - always carried by the pulse, the bass.
- You play an instrument together - together you become an instrument.
The tuners of PANArt work on the Pang composite material with the hammer and bring it into high compression. These energies are released like sparks while playing and are transmitted to the player. The sounds are short, highly concentrated energy, so that a transparent and clear music can develop.
The instruments are played while sitting, the sound body lies on the lap and is played with the hands, as elastic and loose as possible. Even gentle touches produce a rich musical communication. Each Balu has the whole range of sound possibilities: The pulsating Bass (Gu), the percussive areas and the harmonically tuned tonal circles.
Christopher Baron, longtime Hang-player and music therapist, about the Hang Balu: Hang® Balu’s Musical Vitality
The Balu voices:
The frequency of the cavity of the lens is an F2, the whole instrument is harmonically tuned to it. The palette of sounds of the Balu opens a sound range of 7 octaves. The Balu voices excite mutually through the air (producing a so- called cathedral effect).
