About Me


David at St. Michael's Mount

I’m lostmoya (David Young IRL) and this is my blog. Besides writing, my interests include web 2.0 technologies and their applications, playing games on my PC, listening to and playing music, watching films and surfing the internet for mildly entertaining trivia.


From time to time I’ll write about any or all of the above (or anything else that takes my fancy) and publish it here for anyone who’s interested to take a look.

    Hi – I love the info on your Blog – it is very informative and helpful to folks searching for Hang Drums. I play with the Jeff Ball Band – (Native American Flute music).
    We have just posted several videos on You Tube for our new album the shape of light – which is built totally around the Hang and Flute. Most folks play their Hangs the way Dante does in the video you have posted – A few of us out there play “Barcelona style” where we use mainly – thumbs.
    You can also get great Harmonics by knuckeling the spaces between the note depressions – and get great bendable Udu style bass as well as ring tones from the bottom side of the Hang. I do this stuff in a few of my other videos – though the bass tones kind of get lost in the video compression.
    Thought you might enjoy this – Feel free to spread it around where ever you like Our album has actually made it through the preliminary selections for this year’s Grammy Nominations in the New Age category – so we love all the traffic we can get!
    Here is a link for one video :

    Hi, I love your blog. Glad to see someone takes such an interest in the hang. Please take time to read my entry ( its a long one) regarding my idea for hang purchases. Maybe this will work, and we can all take hang playing to the next level.

    I have very few words to say,
    I’m really in love with the hang instrument.
    In combination with what your band is using, it is a wonderful marriage.
    I love it.
