FreeNotes Xylo-chimes

Experience effortless music making, the music will play you!

Freenotes musical instruments are carefully designed for unlocking an individual’s innate creative potential, allowing the universal language of music to be expressed more by feeling and intuition than hours of disciplined practice. Freenotes musical instruments require only the simplest of playing techniques to produce pure, soothing, healing music.

Freenotes instruments are related to the beautiful gamelan instruments of Java and Bali, where nearly all people play music. These Xylo-chimes, played with mallets are built over a resonator creating rich celestial tones. Any note played sounds beautiful, opening possibilities for anyone to experience the deep pleasure of playing music.

Freenotes makes it easy to “get out of the way” and get into the sound.  They are built sturdily and will not go out of tune. Freenotes are available in several Pentatonic scales, all in harmony with themselves.

This is the new design that Richard Cooke, instrument maker, has created.Freenotes

Some ideas when playing Freenotes:

  • Play one note at a time, listen
  • Let the sound take you to the next note
  • Play rhythmically
  • Play 2 notes at a time-try splitting patterns of 3 or 4 notes apart and move this pattern up and down
  • Play a drone to sing over-play 2 notes in a repeated pattern

Freenotes are high vibration instruments that can bring you to the present moment, releasing worries and other concerns

Enjoy, let the sounds put you in a relaxation state

Freenotes have a celestial sound, they are magical!
