The compositions presented on these CDs are based on the octave principle, that formal in wich structures of nature (from astronomy to nuclear physics) find their response. They represent different takes on the diversity and joy of nature and on scientific discovery of the laws of the universe.
This music could expand your consciousness. Please be aware of it.
The ability to be in resonance with the vibrations of cosmic totality means to be in unison. It is by way of immediate experience and through the archetypical aspects of being, that tuning oneself to a cosmic coherence becomes possible.
The technique of creating this music is based on classical Indian music, which uses mostly 136.10 vibrations per sec. As its main frequency for tuning instruments. This tone is called “OM”. In spiritual anatomy of the mystic way, OM is related to the center of the heart. Many people on earth are in harmony with this tone, also known as the “Year-tone”, a so-called octave-analogue tone resulting from the octave transposition of one earth orbit into the audible frequency range.
This principle of octave transposition forms the basis of the “Cosmic Octave”. In 1978 the Swiss mathematician, Hans Cousto, developed the idea of applying the harmonical law of doubling or halving frequencies beyond the range of audible perception. This created the possibility of appropriating octave-analogue tones, rhythms and colors related to the rotation of planets, planets cycles and other natural vibrations.
Acoustic perception is directly related to synchronization and resonance, due to our overtone-disposed hearing and the so-called frequency following response (ffr) of human brainwave activity. This implies that by hearing octave-analogue tones and rhythms, we can resonate with occurrences beyond our direct perception.
The theory of planetary tones or harmonical concert pitches was also established under the name of “Ur-Töne” (original tones) by the German music journalist, Prof. h.c. Joachim-Ernst Berendt.
In Egypt, India and Tibet, the tradition of harmonical music applications was already used thousands of years ago in ritualized healing and meditation.
The Berlin label, klangwirkstoff records, offers its listeners access to the fruits of contemporary, harmonical music research and constitutes a network for tuned music which spans the micro- and macrocosm of audible possibilities.

Unfortunately there are some corrections on the inside of the CD Cover:
3. paragraph - instead of 'the rotation of planets' it should read:
'the rotation or the revolution of planets'
5. paragraph - instead of 'Ur-Töne (original tones)' it should read:
'Ur-Töne (primordial tones)'

Klangwirkstoff can be understood as a catalyst in music theory and it deals with the influence of deduced rhythms,
resonances and frequencies in nature.
The label Klangwirkstoff offers particular access to the experimentation in contemporary harmonic music thus constituting a network for the tuning of music which spans the micro- and macrocosm of audible possibilities....more
