In the early 1990s Dr. Gordon Shaw developed the “Mozart Effect”, a theory that listening to classical music will make you smarter. According to the Associated Press, Shaw became interested in brain theory in 1973 when he began researching the brain’s capacity for spatial reasoning.
The 1997 book by Don Campbell, The Mozart Effect: Tapping the Power of Music to Heal the Body, Strengthen the Mind, and Unlock the Creative Spirit, was a sensational read and many parents picked up his recommendations on beneficial effects on mental development of a child including infants.
But why Mozart? What is the catch?
According to Brian T. Collins, a musician and researcher, the standard pitch (A=440 Hz) that is used for tuning of musical instruments, does not harmonize on any level that corresponds to cosmic movement, rhythm, or natural vibration. The greatest musicians, such as Mozart and Verdi, based their music on the natural vibration of A=432. It’s true that it is only 8 vibrations per second different from the standard tuning, but this small difference seems to be remarkable to our human consciousness.
A=432 Hz, known as Verdi’s ‘A’ is an alternative tuning that is mathematically consistent with the universe. Music based on 432Hz transmits beneficial healing energy, because it is a pure tone of math fundamental to nature.
There’s a growing musical and metaphysical movement for recovering optimal integrity in the music industry and spirituality through the 432Hz tuning.
In April 2008 Dutch journalist Richard Huisken founded the ‘Back to 432 Hz’ committee, claiming that this original tuning was used in ancient cultures and is found on antique instruments like the Stradivarius violin.
According to Richard Huisken, music tuned to 432 Hz is softer and brighter, giving greater clarity and is easier on the ears. Many people experience more meditative and relaxing states of body and mind when listening to such music. 432 Hz seems to work at the heart chakra, “the feeling”, and therefore could have a good influence on the spiritual development of the listener.
432Hz unites you with the universal harmony. This musical pitch is connected to the numbers used in the construction of a variety of ancient works and sacred places, such as the Great Pyramid of Egypt. For many people, it is nicer for hearing – softer, brighter and more beautiful than music in 440 Hz.
432Hz is based in nature and therefore it generates healthy effects on the listeners. It brings natural harmony and balance and connects you with a higher consciousness. The pure and clean energy of 432Hz removes mental block and opens a way to a more fulfilling life.
Therefore, it is not a random choice of preference to Mozart music. That is what we know and feel on subconscious level – perfect tuning of 432Hz.
The effect of harmonious music on all the living beings – not just us, humans but animals and even plants in eliciting mental and physical well-being – was already recognized by the ancient Greeks. And apparently ancient music instruments were tuned to that perfect pitch of 432Hz. Pythagoras discovered that harmonious music is able to soothe people and cure ailments of the spirit, body and soul. He believed that the mathematical nature of music influenced the mind and the body. He coined a term for it:.
