Last year, in the summer 2014, my old friend Wolfgang Funk asked me to work with him on the pre-production for the hollywood movie “rock the kasbah”. Wolfgang and his company Marrakech Prod where involved in the shooting of the fim in Marocco. Wolfgang asked me to help him with some of the sound tracks for the pre- production and I  really appreciated it. I did some keyboard tracks and some arrangemets, backing vocals, audio recordings and some mixing for the playbacks they used for the shootings. It was a interesting, somtimes frantic, but always exciting piece of work. Thank’s to all who where involved! Now the film starts in the US! Must See!

432 Hz Project The   concert   pitch   (standard   A)   is   and   was   the   reference   tone   for instruments   in   an   orchestra   or   other   instruments,   which   are used   for   making   music   together.   Today’s   standard   is   440Hz   (up to   444Hz   in   modern   orchestras).   This   standard   was   set   in   1939 to    make    it    easier    for    musicians    from    all    over    the    world    to interact   and   work   together   in   music   productions.   In   previous centuries   many   different   concert   pitches   were   used   and   there were   also   diverging   opinions   about   the   impact   and   effect   music can   have   with   a   different   standard   A.   The   fact   is   that   e.g.   string instruments   have   different   tensions   depending   on   the   standard A.   This   changes   the   colour   and   vibration   of   the   music   which leads   to   different   sounds   and   can   be   wanted   by   the   artist   or   not (used     as     an     artistic     element:     more     or     less     “aggressive” overtones,   clearer   and   brighter   sound   etc.).   In   those   days   this was   well   known   by   the   composers   and   band   leaders.   The   so called    “Deutschmeister-tuning”    (452Hz-461Hz)    was    used    for Marching-Band-Music   and   Military-Music   (to   make   the   listener more aggressive and willing to fight?). The   diapason   of   many   old   masters   often   was   around   432Hz   and 435Hz   and   there   are   some   reasons   for   using   this   concert   pitch even   today.   An   interesting   fact   is,   that   some   old   cultures   also (“ by    intuition ”)    used    deeper    concert    pitches,    deeper    than 440Hz.   Does   music   push   us   to   the   limits,   if   we   use   higher   pitch- tones?   (Like   the   “Deutschmeister”   used   for   their   war-music.)   Do we   alienate   from   our   natural   environment   in   the   same   amount we   increase   beat   and   pitch?   Are   we   overstressing   ourselves   like we    overstress    our    instruments?    Thoughts    to    be    considered. Those     who     observe     nature     and     its     creative     rhythms,     its mysterious   oscillation   and   resonance   principles,   can   come   to the   conclusion   that   there   must   be   an   effect   by   using   either   a high   or   a   lower   concert   pitch   as   the   fundament   of   our   music. And if so…then we’d rather use it with consciousness. A   great   researcher   in   human   history,   Pythagoras   the   Greek,   was into    the    research    of    tones    and    vibration    as    a    mathematical equivalent   and   its   fundamental   laws   of   intervals   and   ratios.   He left us not only formulas but also his tuning system the Pythagorean Tuning   Without   going   into   great   detail   tuning   is   another   essential   part in   music   and   it   has   developed   through   the   centuries.   There   was a   major   change   caused   by   the   upcoming   keyboard   instruments. They   had   to   be   fix-tuned   which   made   it   impossible   to   react   on tuning   issues   by   the   instrumentalist   while   playing.   There   was   no way   to   tune   a   keyboard   instrument   in   “just   intonation”   so   that you    could    transpose    music    into    different    modes    (keys).    A compromise   was   found   (after   many   other   tries)   by   the   so   called Well-Tempered    Clavier    tuning    (J.    S.    Bach)    which    allowed    to modulate   through   different   keys   but   at   cost   of   just   intonation, euphony   and   harmony.   It   made   music   develop   in   many   ways but   the   loss   of   harmony   and   euphony   is   not   to   undervalue.   It means   two   (ore   more)   tones   are   reacting   and   interfering   more or    less    harmonically.    In    different    tuning    systems    there    are intervals   which   are   “just”.   In   the   Pythagorean   Tuning   it   is   the   5 th   interval    (except    the    Wolf    Fifth).    Pythagoras    developed    his tuning     on     mathematical     principles     and     there     are     many interesting   details   but   as   I’ve   promised   I   will   not   go   into   detail too   much.   It   only   remains   for   me   to   add:   Standard   A   432Hz means   in   Pythagorean   Tuning   a   C   of   512Hz   which   correlates   the frequency     of     a     diapason     for     otologist s.     Several     octaves downwards      you      end      up      with      8Hz      which      corresponds approximate ly    the   Schuhmann   Frequency   and   the   borderline between   waking   consciousness   and   dream.   For   that   reason   I’ve used   the   tuning   and   the   standard   A   432Hz   to   create   harmonic connections.    The    pieces    in    their    order    of    appearance    are created   to   guide   into   a   deeper   listening   of   tones   thus   leading   to a healing and relaxing bodily   state . The   CD   is   primarily   intended   for   therapists   as   assistance    to massage,   meditation,   breathing   exercises,   yoga…etc.   Should   you fall asleep while listening…well done!

I am proud to annaounce my cooperation with PRANAHAUS!
Since August of 2017, I was in contact with PRANAHAUS to get my products into their distribution network. Fortunately they liked it and so it will be in their upcomming catalouge and also promoted in their online store. The team at PRANAHAUS was terribly nice and helped me to get everything done in time. So now you can get the CD at their shop too!
The CD „Pythagorean Tunes is available at the online-store of PRANAHAUS
