Click to enlargeThe Essential Sound Series

The ESSENTIAL SOUND™ Series builds on the ground breaking research of Dr. Alfred Tomatis (1920-2001). Known as the “Einstein of the ear,” Tomatis discovered the extraordinary powers of sound as a "nutrient for the nervous system." His therapeutic sound discoveries redefine modern psychoacoustics - the study of the effect of music and sound.

If you are chronically overwhelmed, overstimulated, fatigued or challenged, these specialized psychoacoustic soundtracks of ESSENTIAL SOUND will help you replenish and rebalance.

ESSENTIAL SOUND empowers the recuperative process. When the immune or nervous systems are heavily taxed, a natural reaction is to self-limit the amount of auditory or visual stimulation coming into the system. However, the 'nutrients' of sound are needed the most when life energy is at a lower ebb or when neurodevelopmental issues are present.

ESSENTIAL SOUND is simple sound at its best. Melodic and harmonic complexity has been minimized by repertoire selection, orchestration, and rearrangement. Solo piano and piano trios provide beautiful, yet easily assimilated sound. This is fine acoustic sound. Natural principles of resonance (tone) and entrainment (rhythm) have been assiduously applied. There are no frequency additions or filtrations in these recordings, with the exception of Sound Asleep, which contains binaural frequencies designed by brainwave biofeedback expert, Anna Wise.

The ESSENTIAL SOUND Series is comprised of four 2-CD packages:

1. SOUND ASLEEP (30-50 beats per minute) Binaural frequencies designed by Anna Wise. (Release date 12/05)
