Sound Creates

Somewhat later then planned but i wont pass on this opportunity to share something i came across last month, in a way it stunned me..Here I was , a life embedded in music and what did i really know ? That's not all what do all these artists really know about the properties of sound ? So Last month i came across the work of Dr Horowitz a multiple Harvard graduate with a bright career , until he found out what was really going on in big pharma and (secret) bio labs when he decided to crusade against them from the early nineties onwards (obviously these days he's been rebranded a conspiracy theorist-duh). He's written a number of great books , he's been a real pain in the ass for the powers that be, but most importantly for him and us it's not just negative, frightning stuff, he's written books on healing too, like The Healing Codes for the biological apocalypse and the one on offer elsewhere here. Love, the Real Da Vinci Code. Inspiring man, yet very american. Well there's much more as this post seems to be growing whist i'm working on it.

"Sound is the medicine of the future." Edgar Cayce

Most ancient cultures used the seemingly magical power of sound to heal. Sound healing had almost disappeared in the West until the 1930s when acoustic researchers discovered ultrasound and its medical properties. With this discovery, research burgeoned and today the ancient art of sound healing is rapidly developing into a new science. There is now a mass of research into the healing benefits of ultrasound, including its use in breaking up kidney stones and even shrinking tumours In addition, infrasound and audible sound are now recognized as having immense healing properties.

The Aboriginal people of Australia are the first known culture to heal with sound. Their didgeridoo has been used as a healing tool for at least 40,000 years. The Aborigines healed broken bones, muscle tears and illnesses of every kind using their enigmatic musical instrument. Interestingly, the sounds emitted by the yidaki are in alignment with modern sound healing technology. It is becoming apparent that the wisdom of the ancients was based on sound principles.

The Egyptian and Babylonian cultures used drums and rattles, two of the earliest known musical instruments. The low frequency sounds from drums and the ultra sound created by rattles are both now known to accelerate healing. A Greek traveler, Demetrius, circa 200 B.C., wrote that the Egyptians used vowel sounds in their rituals:

˜In Egypt, when priests sing hymns to the Gods they sing the seven vowels in due succession and the sound has such euphony that men listen to it instead of the flute and the lyre.

The healing chapel at Deir el-Bahari, Thebes, was dedicated to Amenhotep-son-of-Hapu, Imhotep's repute was so tremendous that, 1,500 years after his death, the Greeks identified him with their healing god Asclepius. Acoustics research f.i. in the pyramids has provided strong evidence that the Egyptians designed their chapels and burial chambers to be reverberant in order to enhance ritualistic chant.

Pythagoras (circa 500 BC) is credited as being the first person to use music as medicine. The flute and the lyre were two of the primary instruments used by Pythagoras and his followers for healing purposes. He is also credited with being the first to understand musical intervals from his work with the monochord, a single-stringed instrument in which the string tension was established by a fixed weight. In the Greco-Roman period healing temples were used for incubation, a process in which patients underwent dream sleep, among other known modalities. It seems likely that music was used therapeutically during their stay and the reverberant spaces of the temples enhanced the efficiency of acoustic instruments, a function of the solid stonewalls of temples and sanatoria.

Technological sound healing devices first appeared in 1928 when German scientist Erwin Schliephake discovered that sound accelerated healing. He created an acoustic device known as the Novasonic that is still available today. In 1938 another German scientist, Raimar Pohlman, demonstrated ultrasound, by the 1950 's ultrasound had become a widely used sound healing modality. Even to this day the underlying healing mechanism is not fully understood....

Music, in the absolute sense, is the invisible geometry of the cosmos, a delicate tracery of frequencies that harmonise with each other and from which all matter manifests. The conductor of this sublime symphony is the Creative Force of the cosmos, some people prefer to say: God. Music, as sensed by humans, is a delicate tracery of audible frequencies that harmonise with each other and generally please our emotions.

What is not commonly known is that music has the almost magical power to create form from formlessnes as Dr Hans Jenny demonstrated in the previous century with his research into Wave Phenomena and Vibration, he coined the term Cymatics and you should check his work....

Jenny - Cymatics - A Study of Wave Phenomena and Vibration (PDF, 21mb)

This is Hans Jenny's groundbreaking book Cymatics - A Study of Wave Phenomena and Vibration - Volume 1 (1967) which vividly depict how audible sound structures matter which can then be used to diagnose and heal people of various diseases among others. Cymatics, the study of wave phenomena, was pioneered by Swiss medical doctor and natural scientist, Hans Jenny (1904-1972). This comprehensive edition portrays fascinating experiments using audible sound to excite powders, pastes and liquids into life-like, flowing forms. The stunning array of images reflects a variety of patterns found throughout nature, art and architecture. Dr. Jenny's cymatic images are truly awe-inspiring, not only for their visual beauty in portraying the inherent responsiveness of matter to sound (vibration) but because they inspire a deep recognition that we, too, are part and parcel of this same complex and intricate vibrational matrix - the music of the spheres! These pages illumine the very principles which inspired the ancient Greek philosophers Heraclitus, Pythagoras and Plato, and cosmologists Giordano Bruno and Johannes Kepler. For Jenny, Cymatics was no mere philosophical conjecture, but a way of life, or perhaps, a way into life. He was a true mystic, a seeker into the infinitude of Nature, questing for the realization of what it is to be truly human. Pictures alone are worth a look. 135 pages, many pictures. A must see/read for everyone.

Dr. Joseph S. Puleo, is a naturopathic physician and Christian Minister of the gospel, co-authored the book (Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse) with Dr. Leonard Horowitz, who holds a masters degree in public health from Harvard. Dr. Puleo spent three years researching the six tones with colleagues, Spiritual Elders, physicists and musicians alike.

The consensus of opinion was that the Solfeggio sequence of notes was recognized as "an extremely unique interrelated series of mathematical and electromagnetic sound frequencies that include harmonic sequences similar to those found in the 'Music of the Spheres," and were possible connected to the Original Creation tones, a series of tones sung by the Elohim in the creation of life upon our planet

In Healing Codes for the Biological apocalypse they published the Secret Solfeggio Frequencies. Basically it is the "Doe, Rae, Mi, Fa, So, La, Ti, Doe" diatonic scale which we all learn in the first few grades of school. Over time, the pitch of this diatonic scale has changed and somehow Horowitz and Puleo found the original pitch frequencies. In the Solfeggio, "Ti" is missing and what we call "Doe" was known as "Ut". Here are the original pitch frequencies of these six notes:

The Six Solfeggio Frequencies include:

396 Hz = UT - Liberating Guilt and Fear
417 Hz = RE - Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change
528 Hz = MI - Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)
639 Hz = FA - Connecting/Relationships
741 Hz = SOL - Awakening Intuition
852 Hz = LA - Returning to Spiritual Order

The basic Solfeggio frequencies totaled six (6). Horowitz continued his search through the years and extended it to 9 frequencies. 'Most everyone is familiar with the Star of David (ancient Hindu symbol of creation) which uses two triangles (inverted to each other) inscribed within a circle. If one uses the same approach for three triangles overlapping (no inversions) and space them approximately 40 degrees apart around a circle, some amazing relationships appear. Orient the circle with one triangle apex at North or zero degrees. Label that 396. At the next clockwise point label 417, the next 528, the next 639, the next 741 and the last 852. You now have the basic six Solfeggio frequencies.


As created so far, we have 3 missing numbers, but they can easily be created by applying this moving of digits positions. Take the triangle that has 396 and 639. If we take the 9 and move it to the first position we have 963, which is one of the extended Solfeggio frequencies! Thusly we can now continue the circle one more position by adding 963. Applying this same logic to the 417 and 741 triangle to fill in the missing number we move the 1 to the first position to develop 174 which is another extended Solfeggio number. Continuing clockwise add 174 to the number sequence. And the 528 and 852 triangle if we move the 2 to the first position we have 285, the final missing extended Solfeggio number. So elegantly simple.

The end result of all this or summation is the simple fact that you need to remember only two numbers: 174 and 111, and remember the principle of 3 overlapping triangles so that their points are about 40 degrees apart creating nine points around a circle and moving the last digit to the first position. Horowitz and Puleo state that these numbers are the key to creation and destruction.

The consensus of opinion was that the Solfeggio sequence of notes was recognized as "an extremely unique interrelated series of mathematical and electromagnetic sound frequencies that include harmonic sequences similar to those found in the 'Music of the Spheres," and were possible connected to the Original Creation tones, a series of tones sung by the Elohim in the creation of life upon our planet.

* a noteworthy addendum

Here are the numbers 1 to 9 in a standard 3x3 telephone grid

- 1 - 2 - 3 -
- 4 - 5 - 6 -
- 7 - 8 - 9 -

Read the numbers top down instead of left right and you get the first 3 Solfeggio frequencies 147, 258 and 369, when you start at the middle row and go up first and down second you get 417, 528 and 639, lastly the bottom row up and you get 741, 852 and 963 and that completes the 9 Solfeggio frequencies with 528 in the middle...Amazing isn't it, how this simple grid has been staring us in the face, yet with our tendency of reading left to right-or vice versa we don't see it consciously.

A nice page on The Ancient Solfeggio Frequencies

Here's some Youtubes with some binaural Solfeggio

Solfeggio Arpeggio 396 417 528 639 741 852 963


528 Hz Schumann Chakra Balance (binaural beats)

528 Hz & Jupiter's Electromagnetic voices & Alpha brainwaves

Healing Overtone (Solfeggio DNA Arpeggio & binaural beats)

528 is: the heart of the electromagnetic color spectrum (the rainbow--greenish yellow) and sound spectrum according to Haltiwanger and Schmidt. It has been mathematically proven fundamental to all sacred geometry and cosmology.(Vic Showell and others) It is reported to repair damaged DNA.(Lorenzen) It is used by military weapons technicians to tune sophisticated hardware.(Anonymous source) It is C5 on the ancient diatonic scale,(Nicoloff) equal to A=444Hz (as opposed to standard tuning in A-440).(Walton and others) The A note set at 444Hz is used by the Boston Symphony Orchestra (according to Jonathan Goldman's research). It is the third note, MI tone, of the original Solfeggio scale credited for producing MIracles.(Puleo) The heart of the human being must resonate the pure tone 528Hz if we consider chakra system and the color of 528 associated with the heart chakra. Thus, if LOVE/joy are heart felt, then they would be carried fundamentally by the pure tone 528Hz; that also happens to be the natural frequency the human voice chants when the sound "AH" is chanted by groups. Many conjecture that heart-felt loving intention empowers prayer, and LOVE is the "Universal Healer."

Consequently, since all music in our contemporary world (from commercials, to modern hymns and symphonies) has been composed utilizing the 12-Tone Equal Temperament Scale, they all have vibrational limits. As a result, vibrational frequency of the tones of modern music can create situations such as "boxed-in thinking," stuffed and suppressed emotions; and fear-based " lack" consciousness—all of which then tend to manifest into physical symptoms of "dis-ease."
This is in contrast to music created from the Ancient Solfeggio Scale, which stimulates the vibration of expanded creativity, easier problem solving and holistic health.

The actual code that sparked Da Vinci’s creative genius, not mentioned in The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown or film by Ron Howard, is a set of mathematical-musical notes, numbers, and symbols that heralds civilization's capacity for Divine-human communion.

And now for some music

Jonathan Goldman - Holy Harmony ( FLAC, 341mb)

Holy Harmony contains two never before released Sacred Sound (Solfeggio) Tuning Forks of the complete healing codes of the Bible combined with the chant of YHSHV (Yod Hey Shin Vav Hey), an ancient Name of the Christ. These 9 tuning forks are said to be the Divine frequencies of creation. Some believe the sounding of them is said to fulfill certain Biblical prophecies. Others believe these frequencies have extraordinary healing and transformational properties. The YHSVH Chant is a powerful word of prayer, or a mantra, that is composed of specific letters of the Hebrew alphabet that create a sacred name for the Christ. The Chant can be used for protection, for clearing, and to resonate with the Christ energy. As the Healing Code Tuning Forks sound together with Jonathan Goldman and Sarah Benson’s beautiful and rich choral chanting, they create an extremely powerful , yet deeply calming sonic environment. The combination of the Tuning Forks with the YHSVH Chant is great for relaxation and meditation. These sounds may also be extremely healing and transformational.

After all this info, what can you do yourselves ? Well why not transcode some of your music, i've done about 30 albums at this time ..just a drop, nevertheless. What exactly did i do..i downloaded Audacity 1.26 installed it, opened a music file, activate on effect button, chose change pitch reset A =440 to 444 hz , and saved it as... by doing this you will get a C of 528 Hz, indeed a sacred vibe...Whilst doing this and some experimenting i noted that this caused the file size to shrink 2-3% , infact it was the smallest combination i tried....Does this mean data is lost ? yes-noise. No ! This has to do with collapsing waveforms --the better it can, the smallest file you'll get, pure sound uses less space..Anyway you should try yourself. I'm conviced, i've tried King Crimson, Kraftwerk, Talk Talk & Radiohead to name some...I did this one too, for me it was one of the best albums this year. Take a chance

Gift (09 105 mb A = 444 Hz)

To give a clue about the gift some words by reviewing amazon customers.

The return of the essential complete album. The album that's too good to just download a song or two, but one where you want to own the whole thing. One you want to hold in your hands and read the liner notes while it's playing on your stereo

Its nice to see a artist finally have some music that is open to interpetation. As for some it might seem lonely, isolated and maybe even depressing material. It is dark, it is catchy, it is tribal & mysterious... and a piece of art as well as music, when you consider the videos and live performances. Such avant-garde-leaning material, albeit with one foot firmly in the pop/electronica realm, will undoubtedly invite comparisons..........

This is a record that never resolves into a pumping session but it never fails to satisfy. An album of ideas but of deep emotional effect, with subtleties that crawl slowly but steadily. The hidden clues to uncover its beauty are scattered making it a flavor that one keeps coming back to savor in a different way each time. Never dull despite the mood, never disappointing despite the apparent form constriction, this is one of the best records released this year and a morphing creature that continues to evolve to reveal a fascinating soundscape with each listen.

Story Idea: Good Vibrations - "Hang" Musician discovers power of Vibrational Harmonics

Dear Rho,

I was very intrigued by your post about the "Sound Creates". I would like to submit a complimentary follow up information / article to support your piece. I am happy to send you a finished story to your specifications or simply, my abstract for you to include in your own article.

I have been working with Matt Venuti, a San Francisco-based composer and musician. He's a talented multi-instrumentalist who has for the past few years focused on one of the first genuinely new acoustic instruments of the 21st century. Known as the Hang (meaning "hand" in Swiss, the language of the Hang's 2001 creators), it looks almost like a retro flying saucer and its melodic voice is expressed through touch. It produces beautiful music and has healing, soul-soothing energy.

Music therapy has proven useful in alleviating pain associated with overworked muscles and joints, cancer and sports injuries among other ailments. According to the American Music Therapy Association, music therapy "can be designed to promote wellness, manage stress, alleviate pain, express feelings, enhance memory, improve communication, and promote physical rehabilitation." Several studies have demonstrated that listening to pleasing music can reduce pain and anxiety and improve physiological parameters (such as blood pressure, immunity and levels of mood-boosting endorphins) in patients following surgery or in other clinical settings. Because stress hormones can suppress our immune response, it's hardly surprising that relaxing music boosts our body's ability to protect itself from disease.

"The body is held together by sound-the presence of disease indicates that some sounds have gone out of tune."
- Dr. Deepak Chopra

Matt Venuti understands the healing power of "vibrational harmonics", and how the Hang has a soothing, relieving adjunct. When Matt performs live, his audiences are mesmerized (link to his Hangsoul YouTube channel He says the Hang music seems to soothe and calm people and has been a large part of his own healing process over the past year since he lost his beloved wife to cancer.

May I provide an abstract or finished piece, photos, or arrange a conversation with Matt either through email questions or by phone? I can also provide photos of Matt and/or his most recently released CD, Hangisphere.

Many thanks,
Angela James, Media Owls for Matt Venuti
