Paul Stranahan

Paul Stranahan

About:

Percussionist Paul Stranahan uses ancient instruments -gongs and Tibetan singing bowls- to make music that is completely modern and original. He creates sounds and moods that can range from soothing and meditative to chaotic and downright apocalyptic. Each performance is improvised and thus each show is totally unique. By using various sticks and mallets, including a special striker to gentle rub the rim of the bowls, Paul fills the room with sounds and vibrations that can only be described as “other worldly“. The record label Infinite Number of Sounds has released a double CD by Paul called “Gong and Singing Bowl Improvisations.”
