I’d like to discuss melody and harmony together as ‘distraction factors’ in evoking the relaxation response. For psychological responses, much has been written. We have been culturally conditioned (by Western classical and pop music) to respond to familiar patterns in predictable fashion, when we hear scale-based melodies or harmonic progressions. We are unconsciously forced to project into the future…where the music is going.

This is a brief introduction to the physical law and phenomenon of brainwave entrainment, measured in cycles per second, or Hertz (Hz) Brainwave frequencies are typically 1-3 cps (delta); 4-7 cps (theta); 8-12 cps (alpha) and 13-38 cps (beta). Gamma is 39 and above, according to some researchers.

This two minute guide provides you with a brief overview of key principles of sound healing. I go into greater depth in my “Great Minds” interview on gaia.com at http://bit.ly/Healing_Through_Music

There is a lot of discussion on the web about the benefits of music played at A=432 Hz vs. the standard pitch of A=440 Hz. There is also a lot of misinformation and ‘opinion masquerading as fact.

Listen to these short samples, and observe if you can feel the difference. Hint: listen to the samples as they are, and then in reverse order.

Can you hear and/or feel the difference between the samples?

Here are 5 one minute samples of the same music track recorded at the 3 most promoted tunings according to leading researchers.

These demos attempt to minimize the effect of what you hear first influencing what you hear subsequently.

Can you hear and/or feel the difference between the samples?
