A Visionary Sound Arts Interface

Also at the beginning of the Eighties, Doctor Jeffrey
S. Thompson began his Brain-Mind Research project which
clinically analyzed human response to sound. He focussed
on the use of the hemi-sync brain synchronization
technology developed by doctor Robert Monroe, while also
creating several new acoustic concepts including his
"Primordial Sounds," which are natural sounds which have
been sped up or slowed down to the point where they are
no longer consciously recognizable, but the unconscious
still does. This creates a trance.
Thompson also entered into an exclusive arrangement
with NASA to release sounds of the outer planets
of the solar system recorded by Voyager. These
recordings are the true "music of the spheres."
The 5-cd set, "Symphonies of the Planets" is totally
worth the price.
I consider Thompson to be the leading exponent
of brainwave music, per se.
The cd, "Windows," is exhilirating. A Must Have.
The four cd, "Brainwave Suite" is a classic.
The 2004 release, "Awakened Mind System 2.0" is
the best use of the optimal meditation brainwave
matrix i've heard yet and must rank as one of
Thompson's best works.

Dane Spotts, as Zygon International, now Mind-Tek,
has created what might be regarded as a quintessential
series of true brainwave music: The UltraMeditation
Series. I can enthusiastically recommend the first
5 discs in this series for any beginner in the
adventure of using sound to meditate!

The Nineties produced a deluge of new artists not
only in the more traditional genres, but also the new
"rave-ambient" genre.It would be an overly long list
to describe everyone who has arrived on the scene.
Allow me to indicate a few highlights. . . .
Ralph Losey is producing meditative music using a tuning
based on the golden ratio. "Primasounds" is a great disc.
"Gatekeeper" is more taciturn, but wonderful also. He
can be reached throught the School of Wisdom in Florida.

Tamas Laboratorium has been producing high-quality
brainwave music for many years, but i am just now
finding a suitable link. This music uses the "Hemi-
Sync" technology for synchronizing the hemispheres
of the brain, along with mathematical fractal and
chaos patterns for tone progressions (rather than
"melody." While somewhat abstract, it is ideal for
enthusiasts of fractal music and is very effective
for trance. I have found "Visions of Space and Time"
to be classic brainwave electronica. I also can
highly recommend the recent "Water Planet" disc
(anybody looking for interesting natural sounds of
water with synthesis will enjoy this.)"Living
Structures" is a great disc & for those who really
want to stretch out, try the 2cd "Eternal Elements"
which has four half-hour pieces for each of the
four elements. A lot of these music has mandala-like
patterns similar to Robert Rich's "Geometry" cd.

Even though I can't find a web link in English, I want
to tell you about Joachim Ernst-Berendt's "Primordial
Tones" series. These are a series of cd's which feature
a monochord drone instrument called a sandawa. Each 20min
piece is keyed to the fundamental tone of the planets.
This tone is arrived at by a calculation based on the
fact that a planet's single revolution around the sun
is a cycle which can be expressed in hertz. By the law]
of the octave, there is at least one audible harmonic
tone to this fundamental. Primordial Tones 1 is from
Destiny Recordings. 2 and 3 are from Aquarius

Brian E. Paulson is from Indiana and has some impressive
works of ambient continuum music. "Brian's Brain Busters"
may be one of the greatest efforts at pure brainwave
music. "Delta Bliss" and the near perfect "Mystic Rain"
(this last featuring DNA photon resonance sound matrix)
are great for relaxation and healing. "Power Of Seven"
features an entrainment matrix which resonates the
heart chakra w/drum track - potent stuff! His 2002 release,
"Pulse Of Life," ranks among his best work. It features
a beautiful resonance keyed to the Earth Year (second
only to "Mystic Rain,") coupled with a drum track more
varied and playful than on "Power Of Seven."

Brian Caldwell of Sedona, Arizona has recently come to
my attention with the release of all of his works on cd.
"Harmonic Planet" features the classic, Harmonic Brainwave
Synergy. "Creativity Generator" is also quite good.
You can get hooked on this stuff. Caldwell's music is
sacred geometry. Sonic mandalas gently swirling.

Shapeshifter has created a number of visionary
discs that i am just becoming aware of. The
DNA Activation Series is head-over-heels far
out! Coming during the transmission wave of
the late 80s/early90s, this stuff sounds totally
current and is nourishing to the energy body!
Right now, they have an introductory offer for
DNA cd #1, which i recommend highly. This disc
conferred some very positive changes on me.
The website is very interesting. Check it out.
The recent "Shamballa" disc is wonderful!

Bob Dratch is the founder of Dolphin Hyper-
Resonance Institute. Utilizing his own
"Livingness Process" and "Holoform" technologies,
he has produced several intriguing works.
"Dolphin Resonance" and "Cetacean Luminescence"
are two works emphasizing cetacean consciousness.
Using the music of Michael Hammer as a base,
Dratch builds a sonic sculpture around it using
the sounds of dolphins and whales. I am particularly
impressed by "Critter Cleaner," which is not musical
but is "healthy noise" with brainwave pulse rates
which will clear out all negative etheric entities
that might be hanging around. I experienced several
clarifying shifts while playing it the first time.
Dratch's "Ultraclear" is available from
4dshift.com. Most Dratch internet info is non-
functional to nonexistent at this point. I will
keep an eye out.

A startlingly effective work is the Atlantean
Vibrational Sounds disc. This half hour
recording has a quite prominent brainwave pulse
which reminds me of a 16mm movie projector, but
it feels good! Many cosmic sounds cause energy
to flow up and down one's body. The aftereffect
is a pronounced clarification of the third eye.
Acquire the "sounds only" cd, as the others
have voice affirmations. Media tie-in to the
book,"The Children of the Law of the One &
The Lost Teachings of Atlantis." I think the
links is caput and can't yet find a new one...

I just found this link to Brainwave Entrainment
Products, some web company i know nothing about
at this point and have not heard any of this
stuff, but am passing it along to you. Who knows
maybe you'll hear it before i do!

Now that we are solidly into the 21st Century,
we can turn our television into a state-of-the-
art bonafide brainwave dream machine for only
thirty dollars. Christopher Oliver has created
a truly amazing alpha wave entrainment for
relaxation device! Not only is it highly effective
for near-immediate relaxation, the soundtrack
is true brainwave music something like Doctor
Thompson with touches of Mourashkin. This DVD
gets my highest rating. see more in my reviews
