    Product Information

    'Koto' from Discovery Sound features elegant and spiritual sounds that mimic stillness and motion. You will feel as if it is you who is playing these warm, dynamic tones. Koto captures the pure sound of Japan and will flood your ears with various sounds.

     

    An ancient Japanese musical instrument comes into the spotlight again. The Koto is not only used in traditional music, but also by modern day composers have used the instrument in collaboration with orchestras since the early 1900’s.

    Koto was used in old Japanese court music to soothe the body. It has been said that this instrument could purify you mind, body, and soul. There is an opening in the bottom of the Koto which releases the sound that seems to penetrate your body.

    This downloadable DVD-ROM was recorded with the player facing the Koto using the correct posture and emotional display to achieve the high quality 44.1 kHz/16-Bit sound. You can hear many basic playing techniques such as types of chalking, finger slides, pizzicato, and arpeggios, all included in the 1023 files you get when you purchase this pack.

    The Koto sound is as quite as the moon, cherry blossoms, and the surface of water. It has a lightness of flying butterflies and the sputtering of fish, but has the strength of thunder. Its 13 strings bring elegant and spiritual sounds that mimic stillness and motion as does the 4 seasons of Japan. You will feel as if it is you who is playing these warm, dynamic tones.

    The overflowing rich sounds of the Koto were by no means for the enjoyment of music. During a time of ruins and decay of ancient times it may have been known as an intellectual sound source. But with the Koto’s inspirational sounds from its creator resonating with mankind will bring harmony into the new age.
