Made of steel sheet & handcrafted, Handpans are inspired by the well-known Hang®, designed by PANart Hangbau AG in the year 2000.
Fascinated by the potential of this both percussive & melodic sound sculpture, the name MYST has been chosen to qualify the characteristic Mystical resonance of its sound into people's mind & soul / among other reasons more.. mysterious!
The journey with steel started in the early 2017.
'Playing a handpan is inviting a sense of magic & harmony into our lives. If we let the instrument guide us, our creative musical potential is easily and playfully tapped into.
Presence fills our minds. We drift, we flow, we feel restored. Handpans are intuitively and easily accessible even to people without any musical background. A truly universal instrument for our times.' - Soma
