Solfeggio Scale. 3s,6s,9s

I often go to sleep listening to these frequency tones/music. The higher Hz frequencies make me feel very light and positive.

A fascinating article about historical tunings

1. Tuning in Pre-20th Century Europe

Those who attack equal temperament, the tuning of our modern pianos - as I do on my Just Intonation Explained page - seem to be attacking the great European musical tradition itself. After all, the music of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, et al, was written for 12 equally-spaced pitches to the octave, right? And if we change our tuning, that music would no longer be playable as it was intended to be heard, right?

Dead wrong.

Equal temperament - the bland, equal spacing of the 12 pitches of the octave - is pretty much a 20th-century phenomenon. It was known about in Europe as early as the early 17th century, and in China much earlier. But it wasn't used, because the consensus was that it sounded awful: out of tune and characterless. During the 19th century (for reasons we'll discuss later), keyboard tuning drifted closer and closer to equal temperament over the protest of many of the more sensitive musicians. Not until 1917 was a method devised for tuning exact equal temperament.

So how was earlier European music tuned? What are we missing when we hear older music played in 20th-century equal temperament?

Harpsichord

I had a childhood friend that ended up to be a concert pianist. He had a grand in his living room but did something interesting in his practice room. He took a stand up and tuned it with well-temperament and somehow inserted metal pins next to the strings to emulate the unusual sound of a harpsichord. The similarity was just incredible!

Love this!

The difference between 440Hz and 432Hz is slight but at the same time quite significant if one is "in tune" with the nature of things. I remember first tuning my guitar to 432Hz and a string who's tuning knob broke, was perfectly in tune with the other strings! As if it knew it's most natural resonant frequency all along. Gave me chills.

Love frequency

Not sure about the Gregorians, but It is the "love" frequency and is also "in tune" with nature. It is said that if we all change to this frequency it will "repair" our DNA.

Everyone knows instinctively that this is true.

Unfortunately...

very few understand it so they have no clue how to "feel" it. Nature does though. I think it is the cycle of the string theory. It is the "Breath" that ties all objects together described in animism.
