Abstract: This study seeks to acquire knowledge and understanding relating to the therapeutic use of instruments and music. Publication of data has been yielded together grounded in several studies to postulate a theory. A Heuristic research method has been employed to illustrate and analyse the collection of data. The investigation will explore the expressive and aesthetic qualities of the data embodied in recorded improvisations and reflective journals in an attempt to discover whether the Hang Sound-Sculpture is a therapeutic tool that can influence change.
