Modern Lyre Harp

- Feb 02, 2021-


The modernLyre Harpwas first designed by the Swiss intellectual musician Edmund Pracht in 1926 for children with special needs. It is also a more direct way to overcome the mechanical complexity of the piano.

The Lyaqin made by the Gaertner manufacturer was widely circulated in Europe once it was invented, and many manufacturers followed suit. The concept of Lyaqin originated in ancient Greece, but the connection is very weak.

In ancient times, musicians used Lyre Harp to show the universe and express the harmony between man and nature. In modern life, our attention to the listening environment will be disturbed by a lot of noise, and high-quality sound sources gradually disappear.

Lyre Harp has a very gentle tone and serene quality. In Waldorf education, Lyre Harpis a classic spiritual instrument that nourishes children's senses. Its voice was very strong at the beginning, and then immediately weakened into a soft echo, inadvertently changing from external listening to internal listening.

When we play the Lyre Harpto the children, the children can listen more to their inner imagination and inspiration. They will find active silence in listening, and the body will also resonate.

There are several key descriptions in the text introducing modern Lyre Harp---"designed for children with special needs", "overcoming the mechanical complexity of pianos", "showing the universe to express the harmony between man and nature", and "nourishing children's senses" and "Mind Instrument".

Among the twelve senses, hearing is the only one that can reach the soul. The sound itself has penetrating properties, and the spiral channel of the cochlea may help sound to break the boundaries of space to reach the level space world where the soul is. In short, music can directly touch the soul, and the sound of metal is especially so. This may be the reason why Lyre Harp chooses metal strings.
