I love Tibetan bowl music for relaxing and for meditation both.

33bowls has done a very good job at these three main challenges, bowls that resonate well together, musical performance, and sound recording quality.

This is one of the best recorded singing bowl albums I've ever heard. Hans has an amazing ear, and has crafted a singing bowl collection based on quarter tones. As we do not often hear these frequencies here in the West, they reach places within us where most music never goes. His intervals are fat and rich and yet he leaves plenty of space. His beats have quite a hook, and pull us under. This recording is a labor of love and a gift to us all.

This is the first CD that actually puts me to sleep. I probably get about a third of the way into this CD and I'm out like a light. This is gentle vibrating sounds of Tibetan singing bowls and it has a calming and soothing effect on you. It sets up an ambient environment for sleep and I find the next morning that I had fallen asleep a short way into it. I've tried many other types of CD's, ocean waves, new age, etc., and this CD actually works for me. I hope it will do the same for you, Give it a chance.

Among the growing number of excellent recordings of Tibetan singing
bowls,33 Bowls soars and stands out as a sonic masterwork.
This is understatement, rather than hyperbole, as Hans'
compositions, deeply intuitive and spiritual as they are, are subtly structured
like a musical Pythagorean braid, imbued with as much Reason as feeling.
What I perceive is not another talented New Age dilettante creating trance
music to zone out the listener, but a brilliant composer and technician whose
mastery of the intellectual, physical, and spiritual aspects of music has created
works that will delight those seeking "vibrational medicine" as well as those
who appreciate "classical" music. The production itself is technically
flawless: tonal resonance and a quiet, almost fugal complexity underlie the soothing
oceanic flow of sound. And this comes forth with crystal clarity. Others have produced excellent
recordings with the bowls, but Hans plays these with a deep respect for their sound
and their antiquity, evoking (and invoking) past masters of these sacred instruments. With
these recordings, he becomes a living part of that lineage. [As wonderful as the MP3
version is, the HDCD version is even more astonishing. The 33 Bowls website is also worth a look.]

The 33 Bowls sound is exquisite. I design, engineer, and produce entrainment tracks professionally for companies who market them as their own. If you are someone who has ever worked with brainwave entrainment before, you have almost certainly heard some of my work. The thing that 33 Bowls gets right is to use recordings in their more raw form. In my productions, I have worked with traditional healers from Tibet who utilize singing bowls. The way you hear bowls played on 33 Bowls is very much the way you would hear bowls played if you were to be treated by a healer in Tibet.

Purely digital recordings produced in a studio sound overly sterile. In fact, when mastering many such recordings, the engineer often applies analogue filters in an effort to put back some of the harmonics and "imperfections" found naturally in raw recordings. I use natural sounds in my own works wherever possible, some of which have "imperfections" in them. These are, in my professional judgement, far more organic and natural to the ear than the sterile approach used in purely digital creations.

So, expect the odd sound here and there in 33 Bowls, just as you would expect the occasional sound that arises in the environment wherever you listen to music. Unless you live in a soundproof box, you will have ambient noises that interject themselves into your listening from time to time. For the most part, our ears simply incorporate these into the overall listening experience with very little notice paid to them. The same will be true of the 33 Bowls recordings if the listener gives them half a chance.

Setting aside the ambient sound artifacts for a moment, 33 Bowls has been recorded exceptionally well.

These Tibetan Singing Bowl recordings are fantastic for two reasons. First, the quality of the recordings are superb, first rate. Second, the performances are simultaneously calming and invigorating. The mind quiets, clarifies and then subsequently begins to fire on all cylinders. As a writer I have been using the recordings to work along with and have found my focus greatly improved. In this work state the music can completely recede to the background, but I have also been greatly enjoying engaged listens for moments of peaceful repose. Great work, looking forward to more from 33 bowls!

Great for meditation, deep relaxation, and transcendent states of mind. The composition, performance, and recording quality on this album are first rate. The attention to detail... bowls that resonate well together, the composition and/or improvisational performance, and the recording quality... all excellent. This is an amazing listening experience. The rich, resonant, lifelike recordings capture the beauty of the Singing Bowls. I have 2 singing bowls and love the sound, but they are not made to be played together, they sound great alone, but not as a pair. The bowls on this recording resonate well together. The next two challenges are, 1, playing them in a way that sounds good and then, 2, recoding them faithfully. 33bowls has done a very good job at these three main challenges, bowls that resonate well together, musical performance, and sound recording quality. If you enjoy Singing Bowls, this is a recording to have. The mp3s are very good, but for highest quality, get the CD.
