ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Our body is like a musical scale. When it is properly tuned we have a sense of well-being and perfect self expression. In Calendula we use a revolutionary system of creating healing sounds with specifically designed tuning forks to help tune and align the body.

I discovered the healing effect of tuning forks while sitting in an anechoic chamber at New York University. The chamber is a completely soundproof room which resembles a sensory deprivation chamber. I had read about the experiences of the composer-philosopher John Cage and decided to conduct a similar experiment. While in the chamber, Cage heard two sounds, one high-pitched sound and the other low-pitched sound. The engineer he was working with informed him that the high sound was his nervous system and the low sound was his blood circulating.

Inspired by John Cage's experience, I sat in an anechoic chamber for five hundred hours over a period of two years and listened to the sound of my own body. I began to correlate different states of consciousness with the different sounds of my nervous system. Being a trained musician, I noticed that the high pitched sounds of my nervous system consisted of several sounds in different intervals. Then one day I brought two tuning forks and tapped them. Immediately, I observed that the sound of my nervous system realigned itself to the sound of the tuning forks. I knew that many auditory nerves pass from left to right and right to left within the human brain. I also knew that musical intervals, when viewed on an oscilloscope, present crisscrossing patterns similar to those of the auditory nerves.

It was then that I realized that people can be tuned like musical instruments!
