The Sacred Geometry Of Music The Sacred Geometry Of Music by Andrew Lorimer Music uses the laws of vibration to manifest aurally what exists at the center of everything. Into our reality springs a non-visual harmonic law that is universal. The notes and intervals of music speak directly to the chakra centers and causes them to vibrate in harmony to the vibration of a string or vocal chords, speakers moving through the air, or the sound of someone’s lips making a farting noise through a metal tube. Music uses the laws of physics and mathematics to bring out an emotional response in the listener. The music of the Western world uses a mathematical system based on Twelve. All the songs you have ever known and sang along to in your life use the same simple laws based on the number twelve.
What is Filk? Singout article Filk Music by Jordin Kare No, that's not a typographical error (although the word started as one, long ago). Filksongs and filksinging are the folk music of a time and a community, just as, say, Celtic ballads, or new England sea chanteys are — except the time is today (or tomorrow) and the community is science fiction and fantasy fandom. Filksinging got it's start in the 1950's, when fans of SF (never say sci-fi) and fantasy began holding weekend get-togethers — conventions, or "cons" at rented hotels. Clockbusters See the clues, guess the movie. And if time runs out? KABOOM. That’s what happens when you pack a web site full of so many affordable images (like the ones used to create this game). Keep playing until you guess all 50 movies. Skip hard ones and get them on the next pass.

Music Harnesses Emotion to Drive Evolutionary Behavior by Lori Chandler The various milestones of my life are best explained by the soundtrack I was rocking to at the time. In fact, my growth as a person can be documented in great detail by exactly what artist resonated with me at which juncture. Joni Mitchell's and Bob Dylan’s thoughtful lyrics in college, recently the meandering strains of John Coltrane’s saxophone, the pop fun of Tennis, and the aching beauty of Sufjan Stevens, or the soothing comfort of the Beatles or Barbra Streisand, which immediately recall my childhood, each bringing up an emotion and saying, "This is who I am right now."
Make your very own Tiny Ukulele This tutorial teaches you how to make the world’s smallest (and probably only) capacitance-piezo-buzzer ukulele. A ukulele is an instrument from Hawaii that looks like a small guitar with four nylon strings. Our strings will be made of wire and work by measuring the capacitance and then play the corresponding tone on a piezo buzzer. The ukulele itself is made of laser cut plywood. This is what the final result will sound like: Step 1: Get the parts Create an animation online with AnimateStar ABCya is the leader in free educational computer games and mobile apps for kids.

6 Ways Drumming Heals Body, Mind and Soul From slowing the decline in fatal brain disease, to generating a sense of oneness with one another and the universe, drumming's physical and spiritual health benefits may be as old as time itself. Drumming is as fundamental a form of human expression as speaking, and likely emerged long before humans even developed the capability of using the lips, tongue and vocal organs as instruments of communication. To understand the transformative power of drumming you really must experience it, which is something I have had the great pleasure of doing now for twenty years. Below is one of the circles I helped organize in Naples Florida back in 2008, which may give you a taste of how spontaneous and immensely creative a thing it is (I'm the long haired 'hippie' with the gray tank top drumming like a primate in the background). But drumming is not a distinctively human technology.
