Cosmic Music!

Cosmic Music!

I know there are pluses and minuses in opinions about what is going on at CERN but I wanted to share this article because I think it further illustrates the belief I have in regards to the relationship between matter and sound or frequencies. This information is just another proof in my mind that all matter has a frequency and that the frequency can be deciphered and heard.

CERN’s ‘Cosmic Piano’ uses particle data to make music


Physicists at CERN have created a “cosmic piano” that uses particle data to create live music.

Developed by Arturo Fernandez and Guillermo Tejeda as part of the ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) project, the instrument — which has been described as looking like a “fancy staircase” — uses a detector pad to transform passing particles into musical notes.

As reported by Gizmodo, the piano makes use of charged particles, created when cosmic rays interact with molecules in the Earth’s atmosphere. A plastic scintillator within the piano then turns the particles into optical signals, which are then converted into “R2 D2”-like bleeping notes and synchronised (and jazzy) flashes of light.

The cosmic piano was first showcased at a CERN Open Day in 2013, and has since gone on to be something of a hit, with several of them already selling for the sizeable sum $2,500 (£1,540). Moreover, the machine made its live musical debut at the Montreux Jazz Festival last year, jamming with noted jazz pianist Al Blatter.

As CERN physicist Steve Goldfarb jokingly explains in the video, the cosmic piano could become a fixture of the freeform improvisational jazz sessions of the future, given that “the cosmos doesn’t really have much of a rhythm”.

This isn’t the first time that particle physicists and other researchers have experimented with “sonification”: the process by which raw data is transmuted into sound. As part of its 60th birthday celebrations in 2014, CERN assembled its very own LHCChamber Music project, in which scientists performed a piece for strings, keys and woodwind, based on data collected by the Large Hadron Collider.

Nasa has also launched an online streaming broadcast, called CRaTER (Cosmic Ray Telescope for the Effects of Radiation), which allows you to listen to data from its Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter being constantly turned into audio soundscapes.

Fascinating! Enjoy!!

Shirley’s New Book

Shirley’s New Book

I want to introduce you to Shirley’s new book “God’s Power Lines”. She has written about the relationship between our spiritual connection with our Heavenly Father and how the physical principles of electricity work.

God's Power Lines

The book is also available at Amazon and is available in Kindle and Nook format as well.

As she was writing the book, I found that many of the explanations of the physics of how electromagnetism works and her applications into the spiritual realm, very closely matched up to the information I have been discovering in the area of the music frequencies. In his book, “The Book of 528” Leonard Horowitz goes through the mathematical calculations that prove this connection and as you understand the science behind the observable phenomena, you begin to see the design installed by The Designer in every level of our universe. There is a great series of lectures that were held in Albuquerque called “The Electric Universe” that helps one to shift our observations away from seeing things in a mechanical way and start to look at things as electromagnetic relationships.

Believing is not Seeing

Our Electric Universe

Another great YouTube a friend sent to me also shows the relationship between the physical and the electromagnetic frequencies of sound. Nigel Stanford has done a great job in demonstrating this:

There is so much information and experimentation taking place and it’s hard to keep up with all the discoveries. It is my belief that we are in a rapid expansion of understanding how we relate to our world and universe through these frequencies. I’ll try to keep adding links as I discover them – Please send me links you are discovering.

Hope you enjoy!

My friend Bev sent this amazing Youtube over to me and I immediately wanted to post it here to share with you. I have it on my Facebook Page “Peregrinnatti” as well. This is a video of the effects that sound has on making physical matter take different shapes according to the variation of the frequency of the sound. This is an area of scientific investigation called Cymatics. It is what I have been using to bring music out of the Hebrew text of the Psalms of David. This video proves visibly that there is a relationship between the physical form, like a letter in the alphabet, and a sound form, like a frequency. I hope you are as amazed as I am in discovering these relationships. Blessings.

Seeing Sound

Seeing Sound

I was reading a post from a friend of mine in Jerusalem on his blog “Shoreshim of Old City” and found it very interesting. I have talked with Moshe, who is the owner of the Shoreshim Shop in the Jewish Quarter of Old Jerusalem about the work I am doing with the Psalms of David and the idea that there is a relationship between the Hebrew text and how the music might sound. This is what I have been pursuing for the past 8 years, and what I share on this website.

I believe that this article by Rabbi Chanan Morrison gives some more understanding from a biblical perspective to the ideas that I have been working on with the Music from the Psalms. The text he is referring to is actually Exodus 20:18 in the usual English translations

And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.”

As you study the Hebrew words used in this text, you see a definite connection to the “seeing” of the sound that occurred that day among the Children of Israel as they stood at the base of Mt. Sinai and received the 10 commandments spoken by the voice of Elohim and written with the finger of YHVH on the tablets of stone that Moses carried up the mountain. I wonder what the blast of a shofar looked like!

I hope you appreciate this understanding and “see” a new way of experiencing the relationship between the words of YHVH and the sound of the music that comes from this understanding.

Blessings – Steve

Seeing Sound

by Rabbi Chanan Morrison

And all the people saw the sounds …” (Ex. 20:15).

The Midrash calls our attention to an amazing aspect of the revelation at Sinai: the Jewish people were able to see what is normally only heard. What does this mean?

Standing near the Source

At their source, sound and sight are united. Only in our limited, physical world, in this alma deperuda (disjointed world), are these phenomena disconnected and detached. It is similar to our perception of lightning and thunder, which become increasingly separated from one another as the observer is more distanced from the source.

If we are bound and limited to the present, if we can only perceive the universe through the viewpoint of the temporal and the material, then we will always be aware of the divide between sight and sound. The prophetic vision at Mount Sinai, however, granted the people a unique perspective, as if they were standing near the source of Creation. From that vantage point, they were able to witness the underlying unity of the universe. They were able to see sounds and hear sights. God’s revelation at Sinai was registered by all their senses simultaneously, as a single, undivided perception.
