Pyramid Energy, The Universal Cure for All Diseases

 This book is an informational book written similarly to an academic journal with diagrams and a list of references about how pyramid energy works. Aether surrounds the earth, an electrostatic space of energy between the earth and ionosphere creating a geo-magnetic force field that can be altered or used for our advantage, presuming the knowledge of crystals and or pyramid power. The structure of pyramids represent a stationary magnetic force field and is constantly working, manipulating the space or frequencies within our geo-sphere by directional current flow. For this to work successfully one side of the pyramid must be facing true north with only a deviation allowed of 5 degrees and when placed successfully on the cardinal directions, the pyramid will emit radiaesthetic colors. The book explains that everything that is, is made up using three main factors, Energy, Frequency and Vibration. Everything has it own frequency in which it vibrates to exist, for example the frequency of human D.N.A is measured to be 528hz. By placing anything under a pyramid the energetic properties become ionized, charged and then create current. This process of ionizing can charge water, food, inanimate objects and the human body in proven miraculous ways. It walks through the importance of a balanced organic diet, regular sleep patterns and the benefits of ionized water. Pyramid energy can ionize water to near a super state of healing properties, the book claims some cancer treatments are out performed by the harnessing of geosphere magnetic energy. The book then talks about how diseases and illness are a blockage of energy flow within the body, current flow and can be shifted of stagnant energy using the pyramid method. Chronic pains and diseases are also to be reduced dramatically through the process of pyramid healing. The human body is said to have electromagnetic junctions called chakras where pulses of frequencies are allowed to pass or sometimes not allowed to pass through. These specific energy junctions or chakras have color and ancient solfeggio frequencies assigned to them for example the colour RED is a frequency in book labeled as F0. F0 is also the frequency conversion from radiation transformation of sunlight energy. The bioenergy of all living things including human beings can be measured, changed and stimulated according to mood, activity or health & well being. It is invisible to the naked eye but can be captured using Kirlian Photography… this is called ones Aura. Aura can be charged through meditation techniques, stimulus activity, exercise, food and nutrition. Ultimately the measurement of ones aura cannot diagnose any diseases but certainly show a level as to how healthy your body is. Sitting or lying oneself under the pyramid for 30 minuets a day will dramatically increase ones aura radiation and general health also increasing or decreasing blood pressure accordance to your body’s needs. Being in the center of magnetic pyramid energy automatically corrects the body of unnatural energetic flow. Ancient Solfeggio tones are also mentioned in the book, over the course of history the referencing frequency for the chord of A has changed from 432hz to 440hz. There is therapy available by resonating the frequencies of cells, tissues, organs and DNA. These types of frequencies are known as the bio-resonance of matter. Bio-resonance Theta and Gamma rays are also explored explaining that theta waves are a gateway into the subconscious mind, if a patient is ill in hospital and unable to communicate then through the use of theta waves doctors can gain necessary information and numerical values vital to ones health direct from the patients subconscious mind.

Branded!

Posted: February 24, 2015 in Project Development / Applied Research

After an inspiring but challenging recording session at Alex’s house we experienced what it would be like to work under pressure against the clock.. the ideas began to flow in terms of a potential business model. CSM has taught us that branding is crucial to develop any business, it allows the product t0 become a lifestyle or experience that relates to its customers or consumers. Here are some other things i considered,

  • buisness cards
  • buisness model
  • new social media websites
  • web domain
  • market research
  • future van ideas

http://www.destinysessions.com

Doing some research on prices for domain names i decided to go with the third picture shown..

The potential business is a high quality, mobile recording & production to the unsigned singer/songwriter or bands in South Wales at affordable prices. Artists who have worked with Destiny Sessions will also receive a release in a Welsh music publication called FRETZ.

Recently iv been exploring the idea of making my music and studio skills/services mobile. Every singer instrumentalist or songwriter on any level would like a nice performance video, no? What if that experience could come to your very own home or practice space and record you in good quality there, in your garden, in your conservatory or even in your bedroom? For those more in-experienced to recording it could be a less daunting and more fun with there friends or family around. I have also recently just invested in some more microphones and studio equipment to expand my inputs for live recording…

Having many discussions with Alex about how this could work and potential markets and models, he found a couple of examples online (to be referenced) and quickly the discussion lead too the acceptance of symbolism imagery. Basically we needed a logo. Over coffee i scribbled some idea of what i wanted. Destiny Sessions rolled of the tongue we didn’t think about it too much, Alex liked the name and so did someone else of the same age range..

Then alex started making a mockup on photoshop and very quickly the idea developed quite naturally..

All this was happening in the hours of 1pm – 4pm as we had another lecture, I decided the best way to test out all of my new equipment was to get stuck in so we planned that evening round at Alex’s house after the lecture..

At approx 6:00pm we arrived at Alex’s house from finishing lectures and having to pick up my newly delivered equipment from my house. We set up to find we couldn’t use my existing version of Pro Tools with my new interface so not letting it beat us we chose to use Reaper. We were both up against the clock because we couldn’t have the space after 9pm, So in determination to get something finished we recorded rough versions of performances.

Brief 1

Posted: February 17, 2015 in Dissertation Literature Review

Chant and Be Happy

This book is a self-help guide to mantra meditation. The word mantra is a combination of two ancient Sanskrit words, Man, meaning the mind, and Tra is the root word of an instrument. The historically proven and working activity of chanting Hare-Krishna can enlighten ones mood and self awareness.

 P27. Kirtana generally gives a more supercharged effect, like re-charging ones spiritual batteries’’

Based upon the teachings of ‘his divine grace’ ‘A.C Bhaktivedanta, the founder of the foundation for krishna consciousness, the book discusses the history and conceptual beliefs around chanting, breathing and meditation although science isn’t brought into the equation there is a couple of interviews with two famous western musicians such as John Lennon and George Harrison who both practice and promote the exercise.

 

Quadrivium

 This book links the four liberal arts of Geometry, Numbers, Cosmology and Music. Mapping out what sound looks like and how it behaves in different frequencies via pictographs, geometric shapes and sciamatics the book claims it is a glimps into the nature of reality. Walking through the history and the concepts of early number systems from around the world, the book then relates numbers and music to the visual. A harmonograph is a victorian instrument that gives a visual guide to the mathematics and harmonies of music by creating an array of geometric and symmetric images they explain the development of harmonic structure. The platonic and archemdian solid shapes are then unfolded and ‘flatpacked’ into grid like images and the journey through musical keys is related and explained through the meandering directions from shape to shape, chord to chord, key to key. The book then relates the spiraling behaviour of forming planets and stars to the circular visuals of sciamatics.

 Page 206. ‘’The characteristics of drawings result from the meeting of of the running down process with the ‘laws’ represented by the various frequency ratios’’

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mother-infant musical interaction and emotional communication:

A literature Review.

 A BMus(MusEd) Alison Creighton wrote this paper on emotional communication between a mother and an infant. Emotional communication is the fluctuation between emotions and developing an understanding is vital to encourage, support and develop young children. The text goes into more detail by explaining that the most positive forms of communication is one that aligns itself with the other, either to amplify positive emotions or accelerate or motivate an other. If a child should grow up without the musical comfort and communications from a mother then the emotional state is unstable and the child associates the mother to distrust, thus creating low self-esteem and self-concept. On the search for possible musical interventions the text explains how the music and emotional interaction from the infant age is vital to the development of emotional response and communication.

‘’Furthermore, the same interactions that regulate the infant’s emotions and develop attachment are also constantly shaping the neural connections and structure of the brain and thus impact upon the child’s future development (Cozolino, 2010; Gardner & Goldson, 2002; Schore, 2001, 2003;’’

In other words attachment and child development are linked; the same emotionally communicative interactions that develop parent-child attachment also influence the development of the infant’s brain and regulatory systems and thus, the overall future development of the child (Cozolino, 2010; Gardner & Goldson, 2002; Schore, 2001, 2003; Siegel, 1999b).

Neurophysiological and Behavioral Responses to Music Therapy in Vegetative and Minimally Conscious States

 

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3872324/

 

 

This text is a published report trying to underpin the required methods of therapy for people with various disorders of consciousness. The study of neurological and behavioral responses from subjects in minimal or vegetative states of consciousness was the key foundation of the report and through measurements of electronic EEG and respitory measurements the

 

Case study ..

“A” was a 35-year-old female, admitted to the unit with severe TBI following a road traffic accident 10months previously, who had undergone bi-lateral frontal craniotomies to reduce cranial swelling. Both her SMART and MATADOC assessments gave a diagnosis of VS. Medication adjustments, spiking temperatures, and general poor arousal levels were thought to be impacting on her response levels. The experimental session took place during this assessment period, i.e., when arousal was reduced.

Is it saying that audible responses can encourage the development of ones brain…

 

 

 

Sunday Session 1

Posted: February 17, 2015 in Angela Durrant

Angela had posted on Facebook that she would be holding an informal session on Sunday 15th Feb 2015. The session is Angela’s way of hearing our thoughts and trying to develop an idea of creating an event or online profile were artists can help themselves by helping each other. Almost like creating a community, we spent a few hours discussing the current state of the music industry and how the D.I.Y musician is categorised. We went round in a circle introducing our selves, our interests and a brief history. There were a range of ages, nationalities and backgrounds attending the meeting and it seemed we were all there for similar reasons; wanting to develop as an independent artist, wanting to be part of something and just wanting to socialise around singing/music.

I attended with Alex Heywood, a student in my class at Creative Sound & Music. Feel free to check out his research and work here..

Meeting Angela..

Posted: February 15, 2015 in Angela Durrant

 

Angela Durrant is an established professional vocal coach, her background is opera and she also teaches in the university of South Wales. This category will document the development of my voice as i blog about each session i undertake. After my first session with Angela she complimented me on my range capability but also noted that i was over straining my neck and head muscles whilst sometimes ‘trying too hard‘ to achieve a desired result.. We discussed a potential future work plan before xmas and now for February I’m able to commit t0 the course…

Deciding to invest in vocal tuition will give me more confidence for my demo recordings and performances, the longer term is to try more gigs, i love to perform my music and hope to be the best i can be. I also see it as a long term investment, the knowledge of disciplines and techniques are important for any singer songwriter or aspiring producer of music.

Ali Chant..

Posted: February 10, 2015 in Advanced Production Techniques

IMG_0921

Ali Chant a successful writer and producer gave a two day workshop on studio and recording techniques. I spend every possible minute behind my studio set up at home and this two day course had inspired my passion for producing/composing music and being in the professional studio setting. Over the two days we set up different microphones to drum kits and ran them through the pro tools Hd desk Sl2. The second day we recorded guitars, a hang drum and a vocal performance from Luke, I played guitar and learnt a few things on mic placement and preferred choices. How to maximise the performance of your set up with the use of mic polarity. We spent quite a while with Ali having conversations about various related topics, the whole experience was inspiring to say the least…

I went home the second evening and set up my Pro tools express version. I got the best results iv ever had. After applying some simple but reminded techniques about mic placement and setting up the software, I’m now in a position to produce music at home using pro tools. The whole experience and reward of setting up pro tools has inspired me to start looking at paired microphones and preamps to build up my home studio equipment.

On the last session i asked Ali if there may be any opportunity for work experience, we agreed to exchange email addresses and  he replied a week later saying he’ll bear me in mind in the future should he take on a job that needs extra hands.

Sound is all around us, how much of it we pay attention to is debatable. I hope to find inspirational & educational information and explore the relationship should there be one, between sound and consciousness.

Understanding the basic laws of physics we know everything that is, is that of vibrational frequencies holding matter together at a sub atomic level, We all feel emotional connections and responses to various music… can sound be responsible or used to aid humanity or consciousness? We have ultra sound and kidney stone blasting with sound waves and also people deterrent.

Here is the initial sketch of the desired subject matters for my dissertation literature review. I am going to look at the relationship between sound and consciousness.Although it may be a broad subject at this point in the beginning stages i plan to look at it from two points of view, Science of sound & Spirituality/Ancient Traditions.

We can also see sound creating a plethora of visual impressions through siamatics.. Can we map the relationship between siamatics and consciousness to our chakras? Can music or sound specifically aid ones consciousness or heal someone as opposed to being used as a weapon? (sonic warfare) What is the relationship between the golden ratio to the musical qualities of sound.. And more importantly….. Can vibrational sound alter atomic reality…..??

Slide2

 

My dream job is to work as a successful songwriter and producer either for a major label or work independently. I wish to be in employment where my creativity and skills are at the forefront of the job. I do have youth engagement experience working with vulnerable homeless and education or information was the desired key outcomes of the sessions. Working with young people who are not in education or training (N.E.A.T’s) would be a desired route but music and creativity would have to be the underlying apparatus for the engagement. I could also stay on at university gain a masters on sound production and teach it at a college level. This way I’m teaching people who are actually interested in music rather than young NEAT’s without a focus.

Desired future employment in order..

  1. Songwriter/ Record Producer for major label or independent
  2. Teach music production at college level
  3. Community Youth Engagement with music as the underlying tool

 

I have already contacted these professions for possible work experience…
