Generate an internal and very personal evolution
This New Age album is a product of exhaustive research, it has the essence of an exploratory nature, with a profound purpose: healing through music.
To think of a cosmogony is to think of science, from the origin to the infinite evolution of the universe, precisely what Antonio Vergara proposes with this album, is to generate an internal and very personal evolution.
In the chakras we perceive the balance of the human being, we are energy centres that are found throughout the body to the light, also called as an aura; they are our sensors on an emotional, mental and spiritual level. If this radar is blocked or there is a malfunction of it, the body and the mind will experience low flow energy, which continues with an comfort mental zone.
Each Chakra has a name, a meaning and a colour, these energetic vibrations change in our daily life. They could be misaligned due to the lack of energy, thus appearing as a physical or mental illness. That is why the album in each track corresponds synchronously to Muladhara, Svadhisthana, Manipura, Anahata, Vishudha, Ajna and Sahasrara, the seven chakras.
That is originated in the Gregorian chants we perceive synonymous with a very special blessing like in the Sanskrit chants of ancient India. If you enjoy music as a form of relaxation, these frequencies with their tones can help you improve your physical and mental health. In the 20th century, they were rediscovered by the researcher Joseph Puleo, using a numeral and mathematical reduction to detect tones, improving a healthy balance of the human spirit. The Solfeggio frequencies generate a positive effect on a mental level and a vital stimulation for healing.
This was contrasted by the scientific community by linking the type of music played with the physical responses of the body. Notably, in 1988 Dr Glen Rein began to explore the impact of music on human DNA and the effects of the variety of melodies on the relaxation process.
The investigations continued until the inevitable conclusion: the frequencies of Solfeggio generate healing effects on a physical, mental and spiritual level. This knowledge consolidated music therapy as an aid to improve people’s quality of life. For this album, Antonio Vergara initially worked with the Solfeggio frequencies in their most basic state; pure sine waves. (396 Hz, 417 Hz, 528 Hz, 639 Hz, 741 Hz and 852 Hz and 963 Hz) then he added a bass tempura, an octave lower, in the process of his “canvas” he began to paint soundscapes, based on the colours and elements that distinguish each chakra.
All this work was created from scratch and recorded in the studio, the sounds of nature were recreated, for example in Vishuddha Antonio used an old porcelain Chinese whistle, he added water and perfectly emulates the sound of birds. This album is a melodic fusion between instruments from all around the world, like a Dan Moi from Vietnam, a Chinese hulusi, Tibetan bowls, Andean chajchas, rain stick from the Amazon rainforest, an Aztec death whistle, Djembé, gongoma from Senegal and darbuka from Syria masterfully combined with western instruments like Electric Guitar, Analog Synths, Acoustic Guitars, Lap Steel Guitar and an E-Bow to play the guitar in Sahasara.
This material has seven songs, one for each chakra, which ends up becoming a healing experience for those who listen.
Precisely, before launching this album, Antonio – who has two doctoral degrees (one in sound and music production, the other in Social Sciences with a major in communication) and a Post-doctorate in Educational Policy and Culture – held a listening session with several people, including doctors, psychologists, artists and random people, the results of this process were amazing: each person reacted positively to a specific topic; some became restless, others cried with emotion, other people left with smiles on their faces, and none had a negative experience.
When the album was released, many people have contacted Antonio, commenting that the album “relaxes them”, “gives them a peace state of the mind”, “feeling relieved”.
