Cool responses so far...
I'm a student studying music technology, I also work with live sound and also employ some studio work if and when i have time.
But primarily i am very interested in the science and spirit of sound in all forms.
Have you ever listened to psychedelic trance (Psy), they REALLY play with frequencies and pitch and tone and tempo and notation...
Some of the stuff is outstanding...
Also, when I meant 'controlling', I meant more say, controlling their moods as opposed to full control. I.e operating a signal frequency that could
say, pacify or tense someone up?
Thanks for the link. I've 'seen' sound therapy at work at various festivals and gatherings, never experienced it myself... But
studying Cymatics gives me some doubts about instantly dismissing it as new age clap trap. Instead, i'm fascinated and intrigued that humans can heal
with frequencies and vibrations....
: Exactly my point... I'd really appreciate it if you (or anyone else could find a transcript.
You describe the changes in your state when listening to certain types of music quite right.
Binaural beats. They're the two off-beat frequencies that resonate inside your head to create the illusion of a 'third'
frequency, which in turn affects your brain pulses (i.e certain frequencies can change you to dream states or meditation states, Alpha / Beta etc?)
I experienced one type on my mp3 player (a suggestion from a friend), and it really put me into a trance... Totally timeless as i was lay on the couch
for about twenty minutes... and when the frequencies fade, you kind of wake up thinking 'wow, where have i been?'
My point again... this is how the system could manipulate us into our pens.... Having 'scream' zones and 'nausea' zones... A very terrifying
Cymatics right? Fascinating subject... Also if you look very closely, do you not see the patterns resemble the patterns that were discovered by
Japanese scientist and researcher Masuro Emoto explored the idea that sound and thought could affect the molecules of water!
(Very interesting link)
Also the Cymatic patterns strangely resemble many crop circles. Not making any connections here (that's maybe for a different thread) but maybe these
patterns are the resonances of the universe.... Remember the odd hexagon on Saturn?
If you can send me links, i really want to explore this subject...
Any thoughts on these connections?
