Healing Vibrations

bulletHealing Vibrations
This program contains a set of 14 combinations of frequencies applicable to a selectable list of more than 400 diseases. Hearing periodically these combinations of frequencies can help the healing process.


Reads 161 star spectrum of 161 stars of spectral types O through M and luminosity classes I, III, and V. Most stars are of solar metallicity, although two were chosen specifically for low metallicity. The data were obtained with the Intensified Reticon Scanner on the #1 91-cm telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory.

Sound is generated directly from this digital spectra data, appearing ancient drum rhythms of different types, octave distribution and volume can be controlled through sliders.


bulletInfrared spectrum sound generator
Inputs a JCAMP-DX files from  ISIS Pulsed Neutron & Muon Source Instruments & Support Molecular Spectroscopy Tosca and generates a compound sound based on substance spectrum.


bulletDrugs Sounds
Generates a compound binaural tone from each drug's atomic weight. More that 1800 drugs are loaded from a JCAMP file included. Search by name facility is  also implemented.


bulletGenome sounds
Generates from nucleotide (ATCG) genetic sequences in FAST format available from www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov at 8 bit, mono, 8000 samp./sec resolution. Download a human genome sequence from this site in FAST  format (FCGI extension) and open it from this program.
Sound is created coding each nucleotide ATGC to a binary pair with selectable combination, i.e. A=00, T=01, G=10, C=11.
Don't expect hearing something harmonic, sound is generated directly from
genetic information 'as is' this produces a quite draft noise.

Some examples from human chromosome #3 are included in zip file.

Human genome contains 24 chromosomes pairs 22+X+Y.

Format of FAST files is quite simple, it's a text file with one line header following the nucleotide sequence in 70 char blocks, i.e.



bulletPlatonic Solids
Experience 3d animation of the platonic solids with selectable depth and angle. Must have OpenGL installed in your system (this should be quite usual).


bulletMineral Sounds
Generates resonant three octave compound tones from a list of more than 3000 minerals. Tones are generated using powder X-ray Diffraction parameters. This is one of the primary techniques used by mineralogists and solid state chemists to examine the physico-chemical make-up of unknown solids. This data is represented in a collection of single-phase X-ray powder diffraction patterns for the three most intense interplanar spacings.


bulletSolar System Sounds
Hear the sound of the solar system at a selected date, includes controls for easy change of actual date, provides a simplified trace map of planets.

Provides a data grid with planets actual position in heliocentric coordinates (ecliptic loc.) and distance to sun in au.

Sound is generated from physical and orbital data.

Operation is simple: just select the day and click on the play button (toggles play/stop), other controls are self explanatory.


bulletMolecular sounds
This program generates complex tones from molecular atoms and geometry, taking as input one of the thousand .pdb files from Protein databank, generates a sound as a listener would hear located in front of the molecule, being the atoms resonant points at atomic mass frequency shifted to octave cero. The final effect is like listening the vibration of the molecule. 

Are the properties of the molecule contained in the vibration of its sound?


1. Download from  Protein databank the molecule you want to generate, important: use the .PDB format for downloading.

2. Open the .pdb file in the program.

3. Select the number of atoms, in a 1GHz computer less than 400 atoms can be processed in real time, when computer is saturated the program issues a beep-beep tone and hangs-up, default value is 300 atoms.

4. Generate the full molecule sound with the write .WAV option, molecule sound rendering is a extremely high computational intensive process, this option generates 10" of selected atoms, no restriction applies here only the amount on time required. Typical rates are 1 minute of rendering per second of sound.


bulletNotes & Colors

See the colors of twelve musical notes and hear them in different octaves




* v2v Balancing Chat. Enables a V2V (Voice2Voice) dialog, just talk and listen to generated v2v balancing tones, or just keep in silence and listen and it will generate random tone patterns.

VoiceRings and Lissajous figures are dynamically  generated while talking.





*           Voice Params. Analyses main voice parameters including Shimmer (volume variations), Jitter (freq. Variations) and N2H (Noise to Harmonic). Exhaustive studies can be found linking measurements and variation of these parameters with emotional and physical states.






*           Voice 2 Voice (v2v).  Measures voice shape with the 30% of total frequency power generating tones based on its mirror (max-v(i)), these tones are rich in deficit frequencies and sound similar to nature environments, hard to believe until you hear them!. Trace of PHI relations in voice and rhythm is also provided.





*           Voice spectrogram. Displays freq. evolution in time and measures the range that contains 50% of voice power, it’s useful to study voice rhythm and ‘see’ voice with time perspective





*  Tone generator. Issues brain wave freq. tones in stereo difference, major chords synthesis in evolution to a higher octave, feel 3D relaxing and harmonizing sounds. Also displays color associated with required tone and RGB value in hex.





*           PHI analyzer. Counts the number of PHI relations in voice frequency formants and displays a graph with its evolution in time. PHI appears in most nature manifestations, feel and see it in your voice and learn how to control it.





*           Radial spectrograph. Displays accumulated voice frequencies in a radial format providing a convenient depicture of voice freq. distribution, accumulated freq. distribution 'shape' can provide extensive information about the speaker. See the difference between these shapes depending on your emotional state.  

Spectrum data can be copied to clipboard in a two column table containing  (Hz, Power 0..100), enabling pasting from MS-Excel® or any text editor.




bulletHarrison Scale.

John Harrison, this remarkable gentleman (1693-1776) had the fascinating idea of defining a musical scale based in PI number, more precisely in (2^(1/(2*PI))), instead of 2^(1/12) in temperate one, defining two constants for musical fifth (1.494411510) and fourth (1.338319457).

Temperate scale seems to be in the middle of Harrison's fifth & fourth, being a compromise between them.

Was J.S.Bach (1698-1750) aware of this scale? and its consequences in modern music harmony?

Charles E. H. Lucy has designed a guitar based in these scales with surprising results you can check in his web site.

Could this new way of understanding harmony change our conception of music?

In this implementation you can select a note played as a single tone or a major chord (tone+fifth+third), both Harrison scales seem to sound better and more harmonically, it might be difficult to appreciate at the beginning but after a short while you can feel it.



VoiceRings. Talk and see animated concentric color rings following your voice, colors and number of rings are calculated from  frequency and number of voice formants.


GeoStar. Generate geometric stars with three type of connections (star, polygon, all2all), number of vertices from 3 to 200, result can be copied to clip.
