gongtheplanet — May 11, 2010 — On May 1st, 2010 The Conduit participated in a world wide gongathon inspired by fellow gong player Michael Bettine.
Most countries celebrate their military might on May 1st. To counter balance this enormous expenditure of energy and celebration of ego. Gong players around the world took part by playing their gongs from Noon-1pm local time to raise the vibration for mother earth and her inhabitants. This is a sample of The Conduit's contribution for the world wide gong a thon.
