TUNE IN AND BE TUNED TO 432HZ

Justin Abedin and I will be performing our entire concert tuned to A=432Hz at my StageIt streaming concert today (Saturday). What the heck does A=432Hz mean I hear you ask? Well I can't remember exactly where I first learned about tuning to A432Hz but it was re-introduced to me at the Victor Wooten music camp I attended in Sept 2012.  Victor and his brothers Roy & Reggie talked about the phenomenon of tuning to A432 Hz instead of the industry standard of 8 vibrations per second higher at A440Hz.  They had guest guitarist Muriel Anderson demonstrate by playing the same piece in the two different tunings back to back and I could immediately feel a difference.  At that point all I could say is A432Hz felt more relaxing.  As time went by I came across more information about the history and power of this tuning (research indicates that the ancient Egyptians & Greeks as well as Tibetan monks tuned their instruments to A432Hz.)  I finally bought a tuner that would allow me to tune to A432 Hz. and tried it out at a gig recently without telling anyone and I could definitely feel something quite different.  Some argue that this ancient tuning seems to be more in "tune" with the rest of nature and the Universe.  I know it sounds like big stuff but I guess for me I've begun experimenting with it and it feels really good.  I'd love to have you tune in to the StageIt Concert on Saturday @ 4.30pm (EDT), that's 9.30pm (GMT), and get your reaction by joining in the chat room discussion with folks from around the globe.  Follow this link to get your tickets for the show.  

In the meantime here's some information from a fellow Scot Brian T. Collins if you want to explore more about 432Hz.

    People are making way too much of this 432 vs 440 conspiracy and all..I am a musician. It is simply vibes, Hz, cps, right? In scientific terms -8 cps does matter. It is a lower frequency, which then lowers High C, which defines a soprano voice type. 432 makes it easier on vocalists in the high registers...since they are aiming at a lower Hz than they would in 440 Hz. There are some math reasons to support 432 as well, I find it interesting that C becomes 128, 256, 512, convering with the binary scale and lower D becomes 144 Hz...those things are also compelling...
