If you have not heard any of my sound healing CDs, you may want to bring up a sample such as Personal Power on Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/user/soundpoints while I explain some of the details on how these CDs are made and why.
The music is created with a system of numerology I developed as a symbolic way of representing different relationships of sounds so that every sound on the CD is organized by this deeper symbolic order. This symbolic order behind all the sounds of the CD is a metaphorical DNA for the music which is unique depending on the subject matter of the CD. Just like how the DNA is the computer program of the body governing all of its actions, the musical DNA of this music serves a similar purpose. This “coding” is often an intuitive or artist sense of which numbers will create the effect I am looking for. The music becomes a direct mirror of the underlying organization and therefore a way to communicate these deeper levels of order. This deeper order is dream-like and symbolic in nature as opposed to the mental organization we use to balance our checkbooks or write a grocery list. I believe that exercising our symbolic, dream-like consciousness is as important to our spiritual health as balancing our checkbook is to our mental and financial health.
The sounds are organized in a constantly unfolding organic process that does not repeat itself. I find this helps to relax the mind because if the mind can not predict what will come next it will eventually stop trying and relax into a state of openness to what is coming next. The more you relax your mind into the unknown of the present moment, deeper levels of awareness will emerge which promote health and happiness and a sense of well-being.
On paper, this composition process looks like a stream of numbers threaded together like a tapestry governed by the musical “DNA” program and then translated into sounds using a mapping of numbers to musical notes. This organization is more often “felt” in the shapes and nuances of the music that are unique to the CD rather than heard. I am very inspired by nature and the patterns one finds in nature. The perfect order of nature has a meaning that can bypass the mental structures of our mind. If one observes the way trees grow or rocks are placed on a hillside or the way stars are laid out in the heavens one can tap into the mind of nature and the order of the cosmos. My music is meant to pass this inspiration on to the listener and act as a reminder of our true roots to the Earth in all of its beauty.
