Quote:Egyptian priestesses used sistra, a type of musical rattle instrument with metal discs that creates not only a pleasant jangling sound but, as we now know, also generates copious amounts of ultrasound. Ultrasound is an effective healing modality and is used today in hospitals and clinics so it is entirely possible that ceremonies in which many sistra were used were not merely employed to enhance the musical soundscape but were intended to enhance the healing effect.
Quote:It is assumed that Sir Gilbert would have encountered the monks in Cathay and their now famous gong-making science. By sprinkling sand on a gong, then striking the central area, tuning in ancient times (and even today by some makers) is achieved. If the resulting sand patterns were asymmetrical the gong maker would continue to shape and beat the metal.
Quote:As a musical instrument the gong has wonderful healing properties because it contains virtually the whole spectrum of audible sound. Human cells, immersed in the gong's sound field, absorb the frequencies they need—a kind of sonic food—and reject what is not needed.
The love tone: theta beat.
"Frequency 528, relates to the note MI on the scale and derives from the phrase "MI-ra gestorum" in Latin meaning "miracle." Stunningly, this is the exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA - the genetic blueprint upon which life is based! MI - 528 Hz - relates to crown chakra. Dr Puleo suggests an association with DNA integrity."
Quote:Throat singing, overtone singing, harmonic singing, khöömei - increasing numbers of Western people are finding themselves drawn to these ethereal and intriguing sounds that have travelled into Europe and America primarily from Mongolia and Tuva in the former Soviet Union.
Quote:The songs traditionally pervaded all areas of everyday life, ranging from work in the fields (the Naduri, which incorporates the sounds of physical effort into the music) to songs to curing of illnesses and to Christmas Carols (Alilo).
also, each organ has it's own specific sound.
Just Plain Nuts.
gives me new energy
if/when I feel down
It gives me a home
that no bloody powers that be
could ever corrupt
because the riddim
is in me
Still a singer! ;)
Just home from the studio, working on a new project :)
...in my weird and wonderful Mother Tongue!
