Planetary Sound Bridges
The Sound Bridge and Sound Ship planetary frequency instruments from Svaram (based in Auroville, India) contain a novel range of 'moving sounds' tuned exactly to the mean measure of the orbits of the 7 planets of the alchemical tradition. In sound-symbolic processes these veritable cosmic tuning tones can enrich your life in imaginative and concrete ways, offering an opportunity to playfully explore and contemplate the diverse cosmic frequencies and their associated qualities.
BEST APPROACH TO SELECTING A SET FOR PURCHASE: Put on headphones, get comfortable in your physical space, take some slow deepening breaths and allow the sounds to enter into your being as each track plays. Feel into the qualities each unique set of planetary frequencies evokes in you. Note down any tracks that you are especially moved by in some way....this is your guide to selecting which set would feel good.
We have put together some phenomenal custom sets of Sound Bridges and Sound Ships for our Beautiful Sounds community that will be incredible additions to any sound healing instrument set up. Listen to these custom sets being played in the Listen to Sets tab.

Planetary Sound Bridge Sets
More about the Sound Bridges, Sound Ships and different types of sets available (Quad, Hex and Triple Bridge) featured in the recordings:
Sound Bridges span their vibrations into the mid octave range of the planetary frequencies (C4-C5), exactly an octave lower than the Sound Ship planetary series. Played with a gentle hit from the side the swing horizontally suspended under the supporting arches creating a subtle ‘doppler effect’, spreading their precisely tuned vibrations into your environment and inviting a more relaxed perception of the specific planetary qualities.
Sound Ships span their vibrations into the higher octaves of the planetary frequencies (C5-C6). Played with a precise hit on their outer edges, they start to rock vertically with their precisely tuned vibrations into your near field and call for a moment of alertness and attention.
Quad Sets contain 1 Sound Bridge
and it's corresponding Sound Ship for two different harmonious planetary tunings for a total of 4 chimes in the set.
Hex Sets contain 1 Sound Bridge and it's corresponding Sound Ship for three different harmonious planetary tunings for a total of 6 chimes in the set
Triple Bridge Sets contain 3 harmonious Sound Bridges (only)
