Busted Pianos Are Healing Instruments

Can this `Sound Cave' made entirely out of old pianos heal the ailing?

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One San Francisco man is strapping a cave to a flatbed truck and going on a healing tour.

After discovering the resonating sounds that broken pianos make, especially those of human laughter, Tyson Ayers decided to build a “little room” completely out of the instrument and call it “The Sound Cave.”

People can crawl into the musical cave – made of nine old pianos – and play its strings, sing, or make any noise they like and hear how it resonates within the space.

Ayers says, “When you get inside and make noise it feels like a 300-foot cave in every direction because of all the echoes.”

In his research, Ayers has discovered that the type of sounds the cave produces can amplify brainwaves and have properties that heal spiritually, physically, and mentally.

Ayers is loading The Sound Cave onto a flatbed truck and taking it on tour this Summer so he can share its feel-good grooves.
