The Conscious Ocarina features beautifully ornate raised sculpture designs on the instrument's surface.
Tuned to a selection of deeper ranges, it offers a powerful, resonant bass tone.
With eight holes, it is set in a diatonic linear fingering system, starting with the tonic on the second finger.
The design of the ocarina is based on the shankha, a conch shell of ritual significance in Hinduism. Its meaning is literally "pacifying the inauspicious," and so the conch is regularly blown at festivals to represent a fresh start and a new hope, as well as to announce the beginning of a prayer.
