Kelly Pajak and I

My friend Kelly Pajak and I collaborated on this project. This is his timelapse photography, check him out at www.MountainMagickPhotography.com. He is such a gifted photographer! I recorded this piece “The Tale of Tumbling Tree” for this project with my new Native American Flute in the Key of E 432hz. Yes I actually made the flute, seen below, out of pine wood then burned the totem and body and finished with a satin polyurethane. I hope you enjoy what we put together. 😀 [Show as...

432hz Why It’s Important

432hz Why It’s Important

Earlier this year I started to listen to a lot of Native American Flute (NAF) players, the likes of Mary Youngblood. I’ve listened to NAF for years now and I’ve always loved it. My wife and I listen to a host of New Age type music, atmospheric and songs while we sleep. The NAF constantly spoke to me and it did something inside of me that no other music has really ever done. What it is I cannot explain but it is healing, reviving and emotional. “Music based on C=128hz (C note in concert A=432hz) will support humanity on its way towards spiritual freedom. The inner ear of the human being is built on C=128 hz” -Rudolph Steiner A guitar student of mine happened to have a NAF and I was planning on using the NAF on an upcoming GrimWolf album for an intro to a song. I asked if I could borrow it for a while to learn how to play. He happily let me borrow it. In the coming months I learned how to play and even recorded a few songs. Durring that time I was researching NAF and in a few different areas I was introduced what this article is about, 432hz tuning. You see the standard tuning, or concert pitch, is 440hz where the note A is at 440hz rather. When we tune our guitars, violins, tubas, etc. we are tuning to this pitch. I never really thought about it much it was just the standard and I tuned to it. In reading some of these articles, albeit some of them nutty and laden with nazi conspiracy theories (really), I decided to give it a try with my guitar. Immediately I could feel the difference was. Yes there was a sound change that I could hear but I actually felt it, inside of my body. This lead me from one article to the next and then to youtube videos. Then there was mention of the Chakras and healing with music and sound. Now if you know anything about Chakras you probably know of some new age nut job telling you about some celestial mojo. What you probably don’t know is that the Chakras are actually related to certain glands and organs in your body. You see, when certain frequencies are played it can vibrate those organs and glands and cause healing. What? Yeah, healing with sound in the...

Awakening Of The Voice

So I love listening to New Age music. As “death metal” as I am with all the aggression and destruction I love listening to peaceful, etherial music. In my years of listening to new age music I have always had a fondness for the Native American Flute (NAF). The NAF has an emotion that speaks directly to my heart and soul. About a year ago I wrote a song called Skin Walker for my band GrimWolf. I thought it would be really awesome if I could get someone to play a little intro piece for it. I approached, via email, a number of well seasoned performers on youtube that I liked. All to no avail. Then I thought, what if I just did it. At that time I had a guitar student that purchased a NAF that was just hanging on a nail in his living room. I asked if I could borrow it and he obliged. I kept it for a few months and during that time I devoured it. I learned the basics and then started to free form play. This instrument was made for improvisation. You can pick it up time and time again and never get bored. To me it is...
