Attunement to natural cycles

Attunement to natural cycles

For as long as I can remember, I have loved nature and people and have been in harmony with them. Over time, I understood that the sound is in tune with us and the world and the universe.
Two things helped me: Buddhism and the sacred syllable "Om" and Hans Cousto's "Cosmic Octave". As a child I tuned the guitar, now I tune my synthesizers.

Man, music and the course of the cosmos. We all vibrate, resonate, absorb and reverberate. All of this leads us to natural and artificial attunements. So if we focus on natural attunement, we cannot ignore the cosmic cycles.
The inner voice can lead us there. Everyone has this inner voice that you can only hear yourself. I am convinced that the inner voice reveals our mood and attunement.

We vibrate in the cosmos: on earth around the sun in a galactic and cosmic structure of planets, stars and nebulae. We are relatively tiny beings who naturally depend on the larger external.
With a lot of attention and serenity, we can feel nature and cosmos. This is in harmony with our inner selves. Because we are nature and cosmos.

In addition, we are conscious beings, we are universal souls who shape their world and strive for the cosmos. The western (industrial) and the eastern (subnatural) world showed us how differently we could develop and attune ourselves.
These developments could in future be replaced by a virtual world.

In the western world, the tuning of the instruments is uniformly at 440 Hertz. We hardly know any other attunements. In the past, there were different attunements for orchestral performances in classical music.
Today, apart from a few exceptions, there is no longer any variance at all.

On the one hand this seems boring to me, on the other hand it is unnatural. The tuning of the instruments to cosmic vibrations (earth rotation, earth orbit, moon cycle) goes back to cosmic influences to which humans are subject.
Similar to how the tides from the cosmos have an impact on us.

I wonder why so few musicians listen to nature and the cosmos. Nature field recordings are combined with 440 Hertz music instead of experiencing and creating sound apart from this stigma.
Microtuning is so much fun. Exploring cosmic octaves is liberating. After all, we live on spaceship earth.

Some basics from the Klangwirkstoff website:

"The cosmic octave is based upon a principle in physics, which is the process of octavation. The formula to calculate any cyclic occurrences in octave-analogue tones and rhythms is quite simple:

(1:a) x 2 n = f

a = periodic duration in seconds
n = octave amount
f = frequency

Based on the natural law, the equivalence of octaves, which means tones within a distance of the octave have an identical, partial row of tones, have the same overtones with the help of the 'octavation process'.
It is possible to calculate an octave-analogue sound to every re-occurring vibration.

Explanation of the formula using an example:
the reciprocal value 1:a is formed (in 1: 31556925.54 seconds) of any cyclic occurrence 'a' (example : earth year = 365.25636042 days = 31556925.54 seconds).
This results in the frequency Hz, which is the vibration per second. In the example of the earth year (rotation of the earth around the sun) a tone with 0.00000003168 Hz.

A human being is able to hear 20 Hz (20 vibrations per second) up to 16000 Hz. 20 Hz represents the deepest bass tone, which is just about audible. 16000 Hz is a very high pitch.
And there is no contingent tone possible for the perception of the human ear which is below 20 Hz and this is the domain of rhythm, calculated in beat per minute (bpm).
In order to achieve an octave-analogue tone of the path of the earth around the sun, the ultra-deep frequency of the earth year (0.00000003168 Hz) has to be doubled, multiplied by two, until it becomes audible as sound.

This happens in the very first instance in the 30th octave. And the best audible tone of the earth year is in the 32nd octave. This calculated tone is a c sharp with 136.10 Hz, which is slightly lower than the c sharp based on the concert pitch with 440 Hz.
The appropriated concert pitch of the earth year is A and would have a frequency of 432.10 Hz. In order to play the octave analogue tone of the rotating earth around the sun one has to perform a basic tuning of the instruments from
A = 440 Hz to A = 432.10 Hz and then checking the sound of C sharp. This calculated frequency is identical to the basic tone of classical Indian music and the Tibetan Om.

This tone is related to the spiritual anatomy of the heart centre. Many people around the world in the process of meditation are tuned in unison with this tone which is the year tone of the earth, the earth circling around the sun.

As mentioned above the continuous perception of vibrations (tones) in their single occurrences (rhythms) can not be manifested below 20 Hz.
The basic frequency of the year doubled 25 times would produce a speed of rhythm of 63.8 bpm (beats per minute). In the 26th octave this would be 127.6 bpm.

The perceptive ability to see as well as to hear is based on vibrations, but these oscillations are faster than acoustic signals which are vibrating, and if one were to continue to multiply up to the 74th octave,
it is possible to perceive an octave-analogue color. The octave analogue color to the earth year is blue-green with 500.837 nanometer wavelength."

The frequency of the earth's orbit thus reflects the human heartbeat and the color of the earth from space. Life adapts.  :)
