Why the handpan/hang drum? Because I’ve been a musician all my life. I started playing piano when I was 6, totally by force, of course, but eventually I learned to love it. I’ve been working on a bit of composing, which started in a beginning composition class I took in college when I had delusions of finishing a music minor. I never did though. I didn’t want to stick around for another semester and rack up another $3,000 in school loans. So, here I am. Experimenting. Trying new instruments. More or less doing whatever I feel will connect with my inner being.
Hang drums have become wildly popular as they provide lovely background and ambient music for yoga, meditation, or even studying. I have even written to some of my own handpan recordings, as vain as that might sound. (It’s going to be okay though, handpan recordings will help me sleep at night as you judge me!)
I have grown rather fond of my hang drum and look forward to getting a couple more in different keys to experiment with. Hope you enjoy the video.
