Connecting the dots tends to produce those aha moments.
As an independent researcher i, (shiro), also tend to mass produce raw intel (refer INTEL REPORTS; elsewhere on this site) and blog those several+ bits n pieces that have links to the subject at hand.
Well…in theory anyway!
WHAT IS THE
SOUND OF MUSIC.?.
On with the intel shiro.
THEY CAN’T STOP THE MUSIC…!?
…can they ???
Oft. there are lil intel bites left over.
Some of these stand alone, general in nature type and are in progress. Topics such as ALCHEMY, ANCIENT TECH and USURY for example. Others are more like one-liners and very specific; yet sitting idle…waiting for the right time to be shared.
Such was the case here-
What is the sound of music ?- with the Vatican it began:
‘ Looking ‘ into the Vaticans Astronomical Observatory with the so aptly named…
LUCIFER TELESCOPE eyepiece
(Time to share…let’s turn on the music shall we???…).
WHAT IS THE
SOUND OF MUSIC ?
From this came the realisation: that when the musical numbers were ‘ allowed ‘ back on…
parts of the orchestra were missing per se.
The SOLFEGGIO Frequencies could not be heard;
The Numbers just don’t add up any more…
someone rewrote the entire score.
IS 432 or 528 the sound of music ?…
or is 444 (hz) THE SOUND OF MUSIC !..
cept if you follow the authority ;
then its 440 ok !?
TAKING CONTROL OF
MUSIC FOR THE MASSES.
Music is a joy.
There is much in such sweet sounds that uplift the soul. There are times in LIFE when it is a necessity.
Joyous occasions…official…solemn and sad ones too. On a personal level, when i listen to a favorite song-my mood, demeanor, approach-even unto my ‘ humanity ‘ etc…sing along too.
A censor of such music…would have a lot of explaining to do.
Such were shiro’s thoughts…
not that i ever expect to get an answer…(click)
it’s all about CONTROL…but y? o y?..
does it seem the olden knowledge of the Sacred & Divine in TEXT, LORE, MUSIC and PROSE ignored by Mass Religion such as that promoted by the Vatican..? The popularity of such as FRASER, VELIKOVSKY, KOLOSIMO, VAN DANIKEN etc.
More recently DAN BROWN, GRAHAM HANCOCK, ROBERT BAUVAL, JOHN WEST and others in investigating the old civilisations, mysteries and legends for knowledge of value is of great interest to many it seems…incl. Shiro.
Many of these inquiries reveal Traditions and Arts of great longevity and antiquity, allowing us to peek into perhaps, the everyday Life of our Ancestors in a more revealing manner than dry old reference books.
MARTYRS FOR MUSIC.
Artists of any genre come to understand the concept of sacrifice for the cause. Putting one’s heart into the work to produce a work of (that) art.
For many…the art is ALL OF THEIR LIFE…
IS THEIR LIFE.
The natural singing methods such as opera and bel canto have produced many fine performers over many generations.
ALL have sacrificed much for their art.
A little remembered genre within though, took sacrifice to a whole new level.
In an effort to maintain the purity of their song these male artists sacrificed even unto their manhood…oft. long before manhood even reached so to speak.
Martyred male singers, boys, now eunuchs for their cause- have ensured their place in music history though oft.forgotten.
Known as the CASTRATI (those who are castrated…) :
LEGENDS OF THE OPERATIC MUSIC HISTORY AND ORIGINS.
FOR THE ART.
Now…before we get too judgemental on this practice, it must be kept in mind there have been other similar actions throughout History…not just by the mere males either (harem eunuch guards…).
IT’S A GIVEN THING...
The ancient athenian/greek records mention a group(s) of female combatants, archers and javelin/spear warrior women etc who felt the need to have a breast or two removed so the weapon action could be fully powered.
The mentality for such actions may be a lil hard to understand for those who are not moved by the art, that may stir others hearts so.
Women so intent on becoming Weapon Masters they also seem intent on refining their body to suit the natural weapon flow…by removing the obstacle…their own breast(s)…(both…if they were ambidextrous).
Running and moving issues quickly eased , battle view maintained very likely and the trigger/strike action of the body for such Weapons kept aligned and smooth.
The added power per se basically means equality on the battlefield...with some incredible and formidable mid to long range Weaponry Mastership to boot.
WIN WIN from that perspective…(radical but win win).
A similar concept is that of drug taking in Sport. Though confined per se to Body Chemistry the urge/desire to do better prevalent.
Lest too we forget…
even in our times when we do all we can for overall health…there appear times when the sacrifice of body items for overall survival recommended…gangrene, breast cancer, gonad cancer etc.( again…win win…if you survive).
comes at a PRICE.!.
The CASTRATI HOPEFULLY too had some sort of choice in the matter.
The mentality described above, of a total dedication to their art does seem to be the primary cause though particular cases may vary. The natural singing methods and traditions of italy thru whence opera links seem oft. akin in the records to that of a trade or apprenticeship/guild…
with a System per se; rules, guidelines, methods, places of learning/study.., so further associated societal/peer pressures too may apply.
Living and learning in such training institutions for much of their lives. The times would have ensured a relatively hard life for most, till Fame hopefully came their way. They fine tuned their body to suit their songs.
Exercises for a HUGE lung capacity, throat and mouth strengthened, back aligned for clear air passage and for those with the higher vocal range(s)- castration to maintain it, usually well before puberty. In fact, the castration meant long term bone softness/pliability…to the extent that the castrati’s arms and ribs were noticeably…longer.
Their physical appearance was oft.commented on in the MEDIA of the times…
though much was rather uncomplimentary it seems.
The non appearance of puberty also ensured a somewhat more purer tone than even the female voice as well as greater range flexibility.
MARYTRS OF MUSIC, all for the cause.
FREQUENCY AND VIBRATION.
ALL IS VIBRATION it is sometimes said…and…it is so…
cept if you’re deaf perhaps, though ‘ feeling ‘ of such oft. enhanced in lieu.
The rate determines the ‘ sound ‘. The current SCIENCES have decreed that this rate shall be named as HERTZ (hz)…in respect of one of their more famous adherents. This hz rate = vibrations/sec…= vibrations per sec. e.g. 2 hz= 2vibes per sec.
CANT’ STOP THIS MUSIC…
NUMBERS that such approaches find in Nature tend to show up in different facets.
Numbers such as pi and the golden mean and so on can be find in the spiral shape of a snails shell…or in the pyramids. Nature tends to replicate concepts that work in a wide variety of life per se.
So is there a natural sound?
Are the natural singers , the castrati and those of the opera on the right note?
432…440…444…528…which is our ears sweetspot..?
To me and to you?
…528…444…440 0r 432…or…?
SWEET SWEET SOUNDS…
From the natural singers perspective;
the majority prefer the lower figures:
less strain on voice/body…chords vibrate lower/less…easier to change and flow into next section…
BETTER PERFORMANCE the main driver/persuader here.
The singers argument is sensible and practical…a reasonable request…lower freq.= a lil more attention/effort/help for singer and instr.players per se…
some/many of the orchestral type peeps too agree with the ” concept ” for similar reasons…some of the supporters are big names…great voices and ears per se…
an opinion of value/experience etc.
so onto more intel…
lets hear the opinion of ear Science experts and what they think about how the EAR is…or isn’t…wired for sound.
SEARCHING SCIENCE FOR THE
The normal hearing range contains some big numbers…
usually 0-20 hz…to some 20000 hz.
As we age this will lower accordingly…slightly more loss on males…the outer ear and canal direct the sound into/onto a membrane/drum…then again onto the cochlea which btw is…
a snail shell shaped bone…
specific fibres in the cochlea respond to particular/diff. frequencies.
This specialisation allows the EAR to be used to, basically sample and analyse a wide-ish range of sounds to the extent this System picks up a freq.difference of only 3% and registers then/that as a new frequency.
SCIENCE finds no specific sweetspot, narrowing it down to only a range…and whilst hints of naturally being somehow wired for sound, rhythm, music and song in the general sense endure…the reasoning seems clear.
WE LIKE…what IT IS we like.
As individuals…that oft. overlap.
There are indications that NATURE prefers symmetry and our bodies structure and functions prefer coherence over dissonance…producing that overall sense of well-being we enjoy.
Whilst particular areas may prefer particular frequencies which, in itself may be an area of interest for more research.., Nature further provides a quite diverse range of choice…covering all bases per se.
SHIRO’s SINGING SWEETSPOT:
Just for the record…
shiro couldn’t find his.
He still sounds like…cats howling..!
From the previous intel, even our ears can’t agree–
some say 440…some 432 it seems.
Some others…some in between.
The natural voice singers prefer the subtlety of the 432…
VIVE LE MUSIC
AND ROCK ON INDEED.
Shiro methinks that alike beauty is in the eye of the beholder…
music is to thy ear…???
Perhaps we should listen to both,
if like our choice of genre…we agree—
on what is the sound of music…
