KOAN Sound Sculpture – Handpan
KOAN are hand made Handpans.
Each instrument is hand hammered to get desired scale and own sound, each KOAN is unique.
Since 2013, KOAN works with steel on Handpans building.
Our purpose is to offer the highest possible quality, it takes a lot of time, searches and developpement. Production is low, only one person working on their designs.
Scales and ambience can be varied according to our desires and mood, steel is our guide …
Sculptures are delicate and fragile, they must be played and maintained as it should be!
KOAN, why ?
In the tradition of Zen, the koan is a riddle that aims to separate us from the logic and the rational to enter another world view. The Koan is there to help us out and unlearn our prejudices and projections.
This is the feeling I had and still have when I am faced with steel …
