Album Notes
Voices of the Gong
A double disc package
Solo Gong Music

GONG MUSIC: That's what this is. Unabashedly gongs, nothing but gongs. Music for empowerment, courage, strength...for healing, imagination, and opening the creative mind and for Spirit and from Spirit...for visualizing...for dancing and dreaming...for resting, centering, and meditating...for reflection and inner growth...expanding consciousness...tenderness...for vibrating and aligning every cell and every atom of the body...for taking an inner journey. This music is everything you expected, more than you expected, and not what you expected. This music is an experience.

“Marilyn Donadt is a musical angel...her music is warm, healing and compassionate...”
Richard Armstrong Scheyer, a.g.g., Northwest Contemporary Muse and Free Verse Poet

“I have heard Marilyn play...and am mesmerized by the sounds each and every time. She is a true master of all percussion instruments and evokes sounds that touch the soul.”
Arnold M. Patent, Author of You Can Have It All, et. al.

“Marilyn's music echoes ancient mystical sounds, and at the same time reflects the contemporary. [Every time] I hear her play, I feel the same joyous wonder”.
Selma, Artist/Illustrator, Children's Mentor

Double CD Album Contents:

Cd #1:
(In Three Movements)
The Awakening/Transformation/Being There

Here, many gongs of different sizes and origins (including a 100 year old Chinese relic) are arranged in circular fashion and struck with varying soft mallets. Through the phenomena of “sympathetic vibration” the gongs gently begin “playing” each other, enriching the musician's performance, and extending to the human body as well, cell by cell, atom by atom.

Beautiful tones seem to soar through space as time dissolves. The spaciousness of this music sustains and reflects the expansion of consciousness.

Cd #2:

Performed on a single large Turkish gong, Magic is powerful, transformational music, which truly reflects the album title: “Voices of the Gong”.

With virtuoistic command, astounding textures and sounds emerge into space through bowing, rubbing, and striking with an array of mallets and “tools”, drawing out the many “voices”, blending them into intertwining passages, sensitive and soft, strong and energetic... sending them floating, flying, dancing, and swirling around the listener.

Vibrations that touch your soul and expand your imagination...!!

Description of Music and Download Choices:

This album (CD package) contains 2 CD discs. Per CD, there is one long, continuous, beautiful piece of music, performed on gongs. The nature, energy, and sound of each composition is significantly different than the other. Each composition/CD is a little over 41 minutes in length.

You are invited to lie down, close your eyes, and listen with a good set of headphones or speakers. Experience each piece in its entirety, from beginning to end.

To make it easy for you to access points in the music that can be used for shorter meditation lengths, “cueing markers” (a.k.a. “program numbers”) have been inserted so that you can choose sections that would work for your unique purposes. Use your own creativity to program your shorter selections of the whole piece. These “cueing markers” may appear on the download list as separate “songs”, but they are not. Rather, they are each an excerpted section of the full length composition. There are no silent spaces before and after each “marker” (unless they occur naturally) as there would be in a typical CD of songs. These “cueing markers” are completely unnoticeable when playing the complete CD/composition from beginning to end.

Recording Info:

All of the music on the Voices of the Gong album were recorded with the highest professional standards. This is an analog to digital recording. The studio recording was done in a high end analog format for purposes of guaranteeing the maintenance of the maximum amount of continuous audio signal. This preserves more of the subtle harmonics and vibrations of the gongs for the positive effect they may have on the human body and spirit.

This was a live performance in the studio with a meditator in the studio as well, to enhance the intention of the music, keeping its energetics in alignment.

This is completely the natural sound of the gongs. In order to capture and deliver the full quality that resonates in the gong, no external processing of any kind was used in the recording process.

High end professional digital mastering was then done to transform the music to the compact disc format.

Amy G. Margolis

Great new age music, with an inspirational twist.
I found this CD to be inspirational and soothing. This is a perfect example of the new age music that people want to hear. I recommend this CD to all of my friends.

Michael Bettine

This is an excellent CD for people looking for relaxing and meditative music. Marilyn Donadt has created a very soothing sura of sound with different types of gongs and small metal percussion. She is obviously in touch with the vibrations she creates. Highly recommended!

Cleansing and soothing
'Voices of The Gong' inspires and cleanses the spirit. Great way to change the negative energy of an office or living area. Makes a thoughtful gift.
