Interview on my composing process
In this interview I talk about my working principles and ethics, where I draw my inspiration from and how I made the best out of a working from a small music studio setting.
I believe we are partly fooled by the music industry into believing we can only be successfull if we buy the big equipment and record our music in a large and expensive studio complex.
At the core, what really matters is the actual music and that it has something we would like to listen to over and over again several decades later. Thats why old classics still holds ground, even though they might not have the pristine and crystal clear sound of todays' musical standards.
I hope we all soon can throw away the big focus on the external and start focusing on the internal and just listen to the pure music.
Melody and vibration
I like music with melody. It's as central to me as breathing. A body that breathes poorly does not feel well and is difficult to be in. Likewise, music whose melody does not feel good in the body is difficult to listen to.
A musical piece should have at least one occasion that gives you shivers of pleasure, which makes you want to listen again to reexperience that beautiful moment.
I simply make music that contains what I prefer to hear and search for in the music I listen to. Luckily, I'm constantly getting new downloads from Akasha which makes the inspiration endless!
I see myself as a humble servant for a higher purpose of providing the world and humanity with good vibrations for the highest good of everyone.
Therefore I only compose music in 432 Hz nowadays.
What's the deal with 432 Hz?
A = 432 Hz, also known as Verdi's 'A' is a musical pitch, or tuning that is mathematically consistent with the Cosmos and Mother Earth. It differs from todays standardized tuning A = 440 Hz by only 8 Hz, but such a small difference can do more than you might think.
Looking at some of the oldest found cultural instruments from Egypt, Tibetan gongs and singing bowls used for ceremonial purposes, as well as more modern string instruments – like the highly valued and sought-after violins made by the Stradivarius family – you find they all have something in common. What, then, might that be? Well, namely the musical tuning. They are all tuned in the frequency of A4 = 432 Hz.
Maria Renold, a renowned concert violinist who herself conducted thousands of tests over the span of 20 years to see which tuning people preferred best. Tones, instruments and sequences were varied so that the listener would not know what tuning they were listening to. She found that over 90% of her subjects preferred the lower pitch. The comments surrounding the higher pitch (440 Hz) was that it sounded "annoying, unpleasant, aggressive, stressful", while the lower pitch (432 Hz) sounded more "complete, radiant, harmonious, peaceful". Isn't that Interesting?
Judging how I feel when listening to music composed in the tuning 432 Hz compared to the modern standard 440 Hz, I am much more touched by music in 432 Hz. It is like it reaches into the depths of my heart and soul. It's not easy to explain why so in logical terms, because it's an intuitive knowingness – I simply feel better when listening to music in the frequency of 432 Hz. But the most important aspect of music is the intention that is put into the composition itself – therefore a good intention may outweigh a lesser tuning.
