Sound, Will & Intention
Tatiana interviews me about my new record
I just posted the latest Cosmic Fire Podcast, which you can listen to here.
In Episode 30, my beloved Tatiana, aka Phoenix, interviews me about the making of my about-to-drop new album, Auric Fields.
We talked about sound healing as the use of sound as a carrier-wave for intention, a philosophy I learned from Dane Rudhyar’s work many years ago. Rudhyar was a prolific writer and he composed music as well as writing about it. He was also a highly accomplished astrologer and philosopher. He was a big influence on me, someone who possessed a penetrating intellect and a scientific curiosity about how things work in our realm and how we could make life more beautiful and fulfilling.
In The Magic of Tone and the Art of Music, Rudhyar makes a correlation between sound and Will and argues that making sound is a creative act that can be used to create beauty and radiant health; or it can be used to create pollution and disease. If you’re not familiar with Rudhyar, he was a genuine visionary and prophet of wholeness. True to his Aquarian Age sensibilities, a group of fans (and his daughter, if I remember correctly) is attempting to share his vision with the world by making as much of his writing as possible available for free at the Rudhyar Archival Project.
We also talk about the personal crisis that led me to embrace brainwave entrainment as a sound healing practice, the magic of the Schumann resonance, and how I overcame my resistance to the solfeggio tones — enough so that I made 528 Hz the central tone on all three compositions on Auric Fields.
I talk about working with 528 Hz and discuss some of the scientific validation of this "miracle frequency" that helps the DNA repair itself from environmental damage.
I play a couple of excerpts from the new record and talk about the "found sounds" I used in the compositions, and how they helped me cultivate an attitude of wonder and helped me stay in the vibration of devotion that I intended to suffuse the music on the record.
And, as usual, we also made a few dumb jokes, talked about conspiracy theories (it’s a twofer: we dove into 5G radiation and vaccine injury in one podcast!), and laughed a lot!
