“A tone is a solar system. It is composed of a central sun, of planets, and of a magnetic substance which circulates rhythmically within the limits of the system and relates itself to the magnetic substance or some vaster system”

- Dane Rudhyar

PLANET GONGS

In 1982, the fortuitous meeting between Hungarian musician Jens Zygar and Swiss mathematician Hans Cousto lead to the creation in 1987 of the line of Planetary Gongs in cooperation with the Paiste gong company. The Planetary Gongs are based on Cousto’s theory of the Cosmic Octave. Following the Cosmic Octave’s principles, Planet Gongs are tuned to the natural harmonic series based on the orbital properties of the Earth, Moon, Sun, and Planets.

The Planetary Gongs resonant in harmony with the celestial bodies and communicate a distinct aspect of the Music of the Spheres, which was first documented by Pythagoras in 450 BC.

Each planet gong contributes a vital pitch to the total harmonic resonance of our solar system. Name fo the Greek Gods, the planets also embody significant archetypal, astrological, and mythological associations. The Planet Gongs provide a gateway back to our natural state of connectedness with the physical, emotional, and spiritual world.

30” TONE OF LIFE MAITREYA PEACE GONG

ESSENTIALLY A SYMPHONIC GONG - not tuned to any specific frequency. Designed to produce the widest range of overtones for their size but are darker in tone than Paiste or Meinl symphonics.

"TOL Gongs are made from a slightly thicker, slightly different Nickel, Silver composition. The gong faces are more responsive, more focused on lower tones and frequencies and don’t “splash” as easily as those of Paister/Meinl” - Phillip McNamara www.pmgongs.com/tone-of-life-gongs.htm

MAITREYA is a transcendent bodhisattva named as the universal Buddha of a future time. The name is taken from the Sanskrit maitre (in Pali, betta), which means “loving kindness” In Mahayana Buddhism, Maitreya is the embodiment of all encompassing love.

Tone of Life founder tom Soltron Czartoryski worked wit Don Conreaux on the Peace Bell Garden in Krakow. Don tirelessly champions the possibility of World Peace with this becoming reality, a warless World Peace on Maitreya “friend to all” Full Moon buddha Day in May 2025.

SYMPHONIC GONGS

A good staring gong, the symphonic contains even proportions of various gong characteristics, which can be brought forth using different mallets and striking points.

If you are looking for a symphonic, know that it is exceptionally consistent in its overall sound, no matter what size symphonic you choose. Yet each gong is unique, even of the same series and of the same fundamental note. Each gong is hand made. There will always be subtle differences in every gong made. Unless cast and machine lathed, no two gongs will truly possess identical character and song.

As Above, So Below

In 1978 Hans Cousto, a Swiss mathematician and musicologist, re-discovered a basic system of measurement which has its roots in the Pythagorean Mystery School (500B.C.) in which it is possible to transpose the movements of the planets into audible rhythms, musical tones and color. It is the universal harmonic relationships between all things based on sacred geometry from music, astronomy, meteorology, and microbiology.

The so-called “Third Measure” is an ancient, secret key of measure (The focus of the book: “The Serest of Chartre Cathedral” by Lous Charpentier) where the author sought the existence of a relationship between the forces governing spatial proportion and those underlying the division of time. the mysterious unit of measure on which the proportions of the Giza pyramid and Solomin’s Templer were based. Using the columnar of the Cosmic Octave

f . 2n (= multiple doubting of a certain frequency).

Hans Cousto transposed astronomical periods into audible frequencies.

AN EXAMPLE:

THE FIRST EVER COSMIC OCTAVE CALCULATION:

THE OCTAVE-TONE OF THE ROTATION OF EARTH:

The period: of the synodic day of Earth:

The period of the rotation of Earth around its own axis when the sun is hIgh in the South until it is high again next day.

1 DAY (24hours . 60 minutes . 60 seconds = 86 400 seconds).

This frequency multiple doubled into the AUDIBLE range:

0.000 011 574 Hz x 224 = 194.18 Hz

(224 means 24-fold doubling)

There are 4 types of Paiste symphonic gongs: 1. symphonic, 2. no-logo, 3. Tai-Log (with mandarin symbols), and 4. brilliant (mirror-like) finish
