Sonoluminescence is the phenomenon in nature exhibiting the transformation of Sound waves into Light energy. The arrangement of Sounds in this recording are intended to bring the listener to a point of stillness, peace, and activate the Divine Light within. Consisting primarily of the voice, using a variety of vowel tones and harmonics, Sonoluminescence creates a serene and austere set of vibrations providing a space for meditation, inner exploration, and enhanced states of consciousness. As one moves into higher vibrational states of consciousness, the duality and polarity of the 3rd dimension fall away into a Oneness that is inherent in the true essence of our Divine being. In contrast to traditional music composition with the qualities of dynamics, rhythm and time, which create a range of emotions, Sonoluminescence is intended to create a space of NO-time and non-duality, without the dramatic mood swings of music per se. There is one, long series of notes that build into a cascading chord over the course of the piece, bringing a lulling wave of stillness. Within this space is an infinite opening to the inner dimensions the listener can enter into. Like watching the clouds slowly shape shift in the warm summer sky, Sonoluminescence, changes ever gradually to bring the listener into a zero point of inner silence and peace.
More About the Recording
Sonoluminescence consists of 27 separate tracks of voice with sparse keyboard accompaniment. The voices chant and tone a diverse range of vowel sounds, (including the Tibetan Deep voice,) producing a wide spectrum of harmonics. Harmonics (or overtones) have been determined to have profound healing effects, can activate the chakras and stimulate higher energy centers of consciousness. These naturally occurring pitches are generated proportionately above or below the base or root note. Harmonics exist in other aspects of nature such as light, and also in quantum physics and cosmic relationships.
Pythagorean System of Intervals
Sonoluminescence, uses the ancient Pythagorean tuning of musical intervals. Many musicians and sound healers have found this arrangement of tones to be more "natural" feeling. According to the philosophy of Pythagoras, math, science, music, and spirituality were all to be viewed as equal parts of a holistic system. His system of tuning in music was simpler, and the mathematical proportions maintain a more harmonious, consonant relationship of the harmonics to the intervals, than does our current Western system of equal temperament.
In addition, the base tuning of this piece is set to the frequency of 432 Hz. There is a wealth of information available on the mathematical, healing, and energetic significance of using 432 Hz as a base tuning frequency. Our current standard of tuning, set to A=440 Hz., has been challenged over the past several years as having a less than desirable effect on our nervous and energy/chakra systems. The frequency of 432 is said to be interconnected to nature, embracing the universe's authentic vibration. The harmonics of this tuning are more mathematically pure. Italian composer, Verdi, petitioned to have 432 Hz. set as the standard tuning pitch in the late 1800's. The ancient Greeks tuned their instruments to 432 Hz. and Tibetan monks tune their hand-made instruments to 432 Hz. Music and sound produced at this frequency "feels" warmer and more soothing.
Theta Brainwave Entrainment
The enhanced version* of Sonoluminescence has embedded resonant brainwave entrainment frequencies to further deepen the meditative experience. Theta brainwave frequencies have been documented to occur in states of deep meditation, lucid dreaming, and in connection to the subconscious. Theta frequencies are also associated with intuition, enlightenment, creativity, and lower levels of anxiety and stress. Employing binaural beat technology, these frequencies can enhance the integrative hemispheric functioning of the brain, as well as re-balance the sodium & potassium levels in the brain that are needed for optimum functioning after the mental fatigue associated with extended periods at the Beta level.
* Headphones are suggested to receive the maximum effect. Do not listen to this recording in situations requiring alertness such as driving a car or operating machinery. Anyone with a history of seizures should consult their doctor before using this version.
