DNA Set to Music! (Part III) 

The Finale of DNA Music!

Microtones, such as the ones created by our DNA, are hard to produce on our musical instruments and sound strange. It was difficult to make music from these 'random' sounds with no seeming order. However, something very interesting happened to the musical DNA team. After weeks and weeks of experimenting with different sound combinations, they noticed that one pitch seemed to create coherency, a C#. (Most pianos are tuned to around 554 for C#).

Common to all the DNA bases:

  • Adenine: 545.6 Hz
  • Guanine: 550

DNA Set to Music! Part II

To continue on with our fascinating discussion of Susan Alexander’s fascinating DNA music…

Again, a scientific team measured four base DNA molecules: adenine, cytosine, guanine and thymine. Each molecule after being subjected to light, yielded about 15 or 18 frequencies; 60 in all. These notes could not be found on our pianos.

DNA set to music!

This week we are going to explore DNA set to music...What a fascinating idea!!!

Biologist, Dr. David Deamer, measured the vibrational frequencies of the four DNA molecules and translated them into sound. Susan Alexjander's web site, "Our Sound Universe," describes this DNA music. I will summarize some of her information here!

Infants & Music! 

Infants and Music!

Aren't these details fascinating? Mothers sing better when their infant is present (1999 study by Laura Lee and William Thompson, York University at Toronto.) Sandra Trehub of U. of Toronto found that babies as young as 6 months prefer consonance to dissonance.

Star Dust: a Musical Astrologic! 

Musical Astrology!

At its roots, astrology was musical that countered challenging forces of the moving planets …that sent to Earth subtle waves below out hearing range.

Below, are two links with fascinating details of musical astrology the ancient art so long forgotten?


Tones of our Uni-Verse 

Things that you don't know about the Stars that can make a Huge Difference in your life!

Hans Cousto’s (German physicist) life work applied his scientific training link the stars and frequencies. In antiquity people believed that there is a deep spiritual harmony in the design and flow of the universe. Music is an expression of this harmony. Cousto was scientifically looking for this.

Three Clues that We Are Influenced  by the Stars 

Three Clues that we are influenced - from the Stars!

The planets in motion create waves - that influence us! This is indisputable science! The waves are below our hearing range, but are recorded by satellites. These star waves intermingle and change the waves of our body, mind and emotions. Star energy is transferred through octave resonance - pushing and pulling us. Many would call this vibratory influence - astrology!

Brain Waves & Sounds of Silence 

Tinnitus is not that common. Tinnitus usually comes from damage to the inner ear. I often hear these little "sounds of silence" in my ears and this could be confused with tinnitus. However, I can produce these subtle sounds at will.

When I focus on them they get louder. These sounds change depending on the time of day, how I feel, and what state of consciousness I am experiencing. When one has tinnitus he hears the same pitch, volume and quality of sound all the time.

Listening to Inner Sounds! 

People are often uncomfortable with silence. We live our lives surrounded by lawnmowers, traffic, TV's, sirens, mp3 players and horns. We are not accustomed to hearing silence and subtleties in ourselves. How could we be?

Many find comfort with constant noise and keep the TV on for long hours. Do we like distractions to avoid the experience of silence? Do we try to escape silence to avoid vulnerability? Our feelings more readily surface in quiet moments. What do we hear in the silence? Do we hear our consciousness? Experience innermost thoughts? Feel our emotions?
