Music Is Frequency Programming" 440HZ/ middle C

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

   Music was "standardized" so musicians from different areas could play together without having to re-tune to each other. This video advises tuning to A=417 as opposed to the A=440. Similar videos would have you tune A= 432.  So you would still end up with another dabate on whether A=417 or A=432 should be the "Standard".

    However, It does seem odd that they chose A=440 when most NON trained male singers have trouble singing the note G4 because that is the frequency where the shift happens between "Chest Voice" or "mouth resonance" and "Head Voice" or "Head Resonance".

   The Pitch of G4 ends up being "Flat", The voice gets stuck before reaching that particular pitch or You "Flip" into Falsetto. If the tuning were slightly Lower the "Pitch" of G4 would be slightly lower and the "Trouble" could be avoided.

Looks like I got that bit wrong, it was A4 and not C4

 

Do you know if that was standard tuning before in the old days? do you think they had 12 notes per octave as like today?

There was no "standard" tuning in the old days. Instruments were tuned to best resonance for the instrument.

"Standard" tuning came about so that different musicians from different countries and areas could play together. They had to choose something for that to happen.

Well have another watch to this same story then

Hear in the video he talks a bit about the history of the 432vs440 and then he playes several songs with his guitar tuned to 432 and then 440. Have a listen and tell me what tunning you prefer, I wont tell you me preferance yet as i dont want to infloance yours before seaing

I have listened to these and many others on the subject. Frequency and Rhythm patterns do make a difference. However, The subject matter and the words and phrases, even chords and chord phrases used are more influential on your thinking and emotions than on the tuning of the instruments.

Examples, Sex, Drugs and Rock-n-Roll, Beer drinking, Cheating wives and husbands, Trucks, Tractors and Cars in country,  Death, Murder, Gangsta life, Materialism... Not to mention all the satan worship going on throughout the genres. \../

Machine gun drums in some or the constant droning of the bass drum in others. Either there is too much going on too fast or little to nothing and too slow and puts you to sleep. Either one can influence your emotions or sense of well being and seep the words into your unconscious mind.
