Recently we came across information on what is called healing sounds. It's referred to as the 528 Hz frequency. We have been looking at a lot of information surrounding this so called new science and technology and though we had to dig through a lot of hype, we are finding that there seems to be some justification to the claims, though not to the level that claims are made.
We were first asked to take a look and evaluate the below video and start our research there.
Okay. The above information is interesting but leaves a lot of questions on the table. From our research, the radio show is rather old and when we dug further, the full story behind the phenomena wasn't very credible or convincing. 528 Hz is said to come from a Bible revelation and secret code from the book of Numbers. The code was said to be some lost ancient mathematical code that was part of a revelation that some doctor had. Here is the real deal on that so called lost mathematical code. They used numerology and called that the ancient and lost mathematical code to finding this new frequency which is ancient. We are not joking about that. Numerology is embedded in the Bible according to these folks. It may be, we don't know. We will leave that argument up to others.
From what we gather on the above sound recording on the video, it's really nothing more than an octave scale change. One argument that seems rather justified that we found in all our hours of research so far is that modern western cultural music is pitched at an octave that does create a certain amount of disharmony. In other words, if you have ever felt bad after listening to hours of music you really enjoy, it's based on the frequency of the recordings.
To date we have spent hours listening to modern rock music that has been converted to the new frequency of 528 and we do not feel bad after listening to the music all day. But then again, we are still in the early stages of our own tests. With some of the songs we are very familiar with, we have found that the beats per minute have been increased from their original recordings, so we have some questions about that.
To check this out for yourself, we are putting in a link to a site that has numerous genres of music and a talk radio that is all produced in the 528 Hz format. The link is just below and is to 528 Records.com.
Here is a video that is said to be recorded in the 528 Hz frequency that is designed to help you sleep better. The problem is that it's only available online for this length of time of just over 3 and a half hours. So it's only good for partial sleep if you can stream it for that length of time. We made arrangements to test this during sleep. We can't say either way at the moment if this is better than other relaxing music or sounds designed for such a purpose. We are testing a number of tunes and frequencies to see what may be considered best if any.
On some early test results we have found that certain music is beneficial to sleep and we woke up more refreshed than without it. It was not in the 528 Hz frequency mode however. We also were able to remember our dreams more vividly and the dreams were in color which is unusual as I am a male and we normally dream primarily in black and white as opposed to color for females. This could also be attributable to a placebo effect however and that issue is not being discounted.
We have found this track that is one of the better tracks available for free download that is supposed to be in the 528 Hz recording sound. If a song is lousy at production, the 528 Hz does not improve the sound recording by any means. A perfect example exists above in the soundcloud track samples at the top of this post. Annoying is still annoying no matter what frequency it's recorded at.
We have our own inhouse music production technology that we can play around with tracks and see what we can do to produce our own 528 Hz tunes. We took a track from our own files and converted it over to 528 Hz. It's a Wolfang Amadeus Mozart piece from his 40th symphony, Molto Allegro as our experiment. The original track was 10 minutes and 14 seconds long. The new converted track is 8 minutes 13 seconds long which explains why the beats per minute are faster on the songs on the 528 Hz radio stations. It's compressing the tracks when changing the frequency range and does create a discernable difference.
There is no question about the fact that music is a vibration that has the ability to affect our moods and character. The question we have yet to answer however is whether or not the 528 Hz frequency is a better more healing frequency as claimed by it's founders. It's more compressed increasing the beats per minute. We have not found any independent research outside of those who have founded the 528 Hz claims however. But we have not done a lot of digging for it either. It's a nice story so far, but one must keep in mind that those promoting it have something they are trying to sell and we have already found flaws in some of their other arguments on other issues. So we are already skeptical on the claims.
At present, the founders have a site where they sell converted music at some rather high prices. $19.97 per CD compilation is rather high in our book. Especially when we usually give music away. And since we can convert our own music into 528 Hz, why bother? In the future we may do an article on how to convert your own music to the 528 Hz frequency. It's really not all that hard. It only took us a few minutes to figure it out. Now there is also the same arguments being made at the 432 Hz vs present 440 Hz frequencies. Go figure.
