Mathemagical Music Production (Second Edition)

Mathemagical Music Production is like a bible for musicians who want to apply the ancient “as above–so below” maxim to modern day music production.

If you want to know exactly what Pythagorean, Just Intonation, harmonic series and 432 Hz based tuning systems are all about, or how your brainwaves can be adjusted using sound frequencies then this is just the book for you.

Includes tutorials for tuning the individual notes on many popular VST / hardware synthesizers including:

  • Omnisphere 2;
  • Serum;
  • Kontakt 5;
  • Zebra 2;

You will also learn how to embed brainwave frequencies into music, harmonize your BPM with your instrument tuning and many other useful things. Among all of this technical stuff there are some very interesting connections drawn up, connections between certain numbers, ancient cultures, planetary movements, sacred geometry, the light spectrum, our chakras, the golden ratio and plenty of other interesting things.

In the end it seems like the whole universe is actually vibrating as one harmonious chord, so read and enjoy !

 The Cosmic Octave: Origin of Harmony, Hans Cousto


The Cosmic Octave: Origin of Harmony

In 1978 Hans Cousto, a Swiss mathematician and musicologist discovered the natural formula of the "Cosmic Octave" as the link between different kinds of perodically occurring natural phenomena, such as the orbit of the planets, the weather, colors, rhythms and tones. This extraordinary book explains these relationships with examples of astronomical data comparing the frequencies of planatery orbits, in architectural works, in ancient and modern measuring systems, the human body, music and medicine. Cousto reveals how music is truly the language of the cosmos and of the natural world.

 Kudumiyamalai Source Frequencies Deciphered, Marret Vonhoff


Kudumiyamalai Source Frequencies Deciphered

This eBook by Marret Vonhoff titled Kudumiyamalai Source Frequencies Deciphered and subtitled The Unique Discovery of a Flower of Life Expressed in Sound was published in 2015 and contains 400 pages with illustrations.

Source Frequencies Deciphered is a book in which the world is described in terms of frequencies. This is a very ancient, universal and above all Multi-dimensional world. A Multi-dimensional world is a world that consists of countless layers, where each layer possesses its own colors, shapes (sound structures), frequencies and (sub)harmonics.

Every number expressed in the form of a ratio, addition, subtraction, multiplication or division is a frequency with its own sound. Equally, each color, each shape and image is a moving sound/frequency captured in a nanosecond. By focusing on these and allowing them to enter into all your bodies, they will most certainly start to resonate in your body, spirit, mind and consciousness.

A book is written using letters which in turn form words. Placed together these words form sentences. Here form can be seen as well. In the Gospel of St. John we read: ” In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”. Naming and describing things using letters is a sacred art.

All letters contain a numerical and spiritual value. I have been very conscious of this while noting down the unique and powerful insights. All stories of Creation in the world known to me mention: “Life originated from sound” (vibration/sound/rhythm). In short: Nada Brahma, Life is Sound.

“The Cosmic Knowledge of Creation lies in knowing the High Dimensional Science of Sound”

 A Manual on the Rudiments of Tuning and Registration, Schiller Institute


A Manual on the Rudiments of Tuning and Registration

This manual is designed to provide teachers and students of music with a ready reference on the elementary aspects of Classical well-tempered tuning and voice registrations of singers and instruments. It grew out of a collaborative project launched by American statesman and economist Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr., with the intermediate aim of reestablishing a working grasp of the principles of Classical polyphonic composition as exemplified in the works of J.S. Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and Brahms; and with the ultimate aim of applying those principles to spark a new Classical renaissance which can lift mankind out of the cultural rubble of twentieth-century Romanticism and Modernism.

 Intervals, Scales, Tones and the Concert Pitch C = 128 Hz, Maria Renold


Intervals, Scales, Tones and the Concert Pitch C = 128 Hz

Why is it that certain intervals, scales and tones sound genuine and others false?

Is the modern person able to experience a qualitative difference in a tone's pitch?

If so, what are the implications for modern concert pitch and how instruments of fixed tuning are tuned?

Maria Renold tackles these and many other questions, providing a wealth of scientific data. Her pioneering work is the result of a lifetime's research into Western music's Classical Greek origins, as well as a search for new developments in modern times. She strives to deepen musical understanding through Rudolf Steiner's spiritual-scientific research, and she also elucidates many of Steiner's often puzzling statements about music.

The results of her work include the following discoveries: that the octave has two sizes (a 'genuine' sounding octave is bigger than the 'perfect' octave); that there are three sizes of 'perfect' fifths; that an underlying 'form principle' for all scales can be found; and, most importantly, the discovery of a method of tuning the piano which is more satisfactory than equal temperament.

She also gives foundation to some of Rudolf Steiner's statements such as: 'C is always prime' and 'C = 128 Hz = Sun'.

 The Inner Nature of Music and the Experience of Tone, by Rudolf Steiner


The Inner Nature of Music and the Experience of Tone

This is one of many astonishing statements made by Rudolf Steiner in this collection of seven lectures on the inner realities of music. These lectures are an unusual treasure, since they are the only two groups of lectures that Steiner gave primarily on music, other than the lecture cycle for the tone eurythmy course, Eurythmy as Visible Music.

In the first group of three lectures, given in 1906, Steiner explains why music affects the human soul so powerfully. Music has always held a special position among the arts because it is the only art form whose archetype, or source, lies not in the physical world, as with architecture, sculpture, and painting, but purely in the spiritual world-the soul's true home. Music thus directly expresses through tones the innermost essence of the cosmos, and our sense of well-being when we hear music comes from a recognition of our soul's experience in the spiritual world.

In the remaining lectures, given in 1922 and 1923, Steiner discusses our experience of musical intervals and shows how it has undergone profound changes during the course of evolution. The religious effects of music in ancient times and the union of music with speech are considered, as well as the origin of musical instruments out of imaginations that accompanied singing. New insights are offered on the nature of the major and minor modes and on future directions of musical development.
