Sound is a crucial factor in organic life
Our central mission is to reduce pain and suffering in the world
Harmonic states exist between all living things. Through sound, harmony establishments are created which are recognizable from one to another, both ways, where words are not needed. For example, a philharmonic orchestra doesn’t speak different languages, and yet the sound produced has inspired people all over the world for centuries, as does the mother singing to a baby when it doesn’t understand the words. And that is how a bird with it’s ‘tweets’ calls for a mate, or lets other birds know where it is a good distance away. How about the haunting intricate ‘songs’ between whales? This suggests that harmonic music can transmit meaning to all the systems of another body, for it to understand, independent of the translation of words by the brain. It is curious that Native American singing was used to summon the spirits – of battle, of healing, etc. This opens up the enigmatic world of sound and begs the question, “What else, what else”?
“As a bird sings as it expresses the wash of the dawn, so a human has the possibility of expressing him or herself and what we experience in many ways. The instrument is not the pen, the paintbrush, or the flute… It is the person and what in them commands the hand that is the true instrument.” – John Turner from ‘The Tear’
Our aim in researching and composing remedial vitaminized music is to tune ourselves, not to a musical key in the first instance, but to the frequency of that which holds the natural remedy, of which COLOR is one aspect of approach.
This is how a tuning fork works. A person can tune to anything, hence an understanding that it’s not about who wrote the music, but what wrote the music – was it inspiration, joy, value, endearment?, or was it frustration, anger, bitterness? These become important questions when attempting to first connect to a remedial influence and then to translate it, giving it expression in the form of MUSIC.
This puts a requirement on the researcher and/or musician themselves to be intact, balanced, and on a journey of development which determines what is actually tuned to and connected to. It could be said that it is about making oneself more attractive to that which you want to attract which requires its own form of study. This becomes a life long pursuit of refinement according to what a person wants.
The musical vitamins produced for vitamusic come from a collaboration of musicians and singers from around the world who pioneer new developments and approaches to music, based on forty years of ground-breaking research. Involving both amateurs and professionals, and spanning classical, world, contemporary and new music forms, our aim is the greater understanding and use of sound in purposeful ways. We have a passion for the potential of music and the on-going development of ourselves as ‘human instruments’, in both our inner lives and practical skills.

What is Music? What is it for? Where did it come from?
Sound, like light, carries energy. It is a cloak of force. When someone plays the guitar, the strings vibrate and transmit energy, however, the guitar by itself is of little consequence. It is the human that is the real instrument – The human wishing to give expression to the energetic processes of thought, passion, questions, being moved, consideration, feeling. And perhaps the design shape of the instrument, how it is played, from where on the body, at what speed; is an attempt to fully represent with an exactness and precision what is being given expression to. This opens up many questions. Why is the violin held at the throat when playing? Why might a violin be chosen to give expression to endearment, warmth, or longing as opposed to drums which are often used for military music or perhaps the promotion of courage and order?
Music creates a bridge between what is unseen and the human mind (its design technology, and it’s process). It gives expression to what a person thinks about, connects to, feels. For example, music that expresses the awe and wonder and longing that a person may feel when they are moved by seeing a mother duck with her young, or a sunset over the vast ocean, or the stars of the night sky. What of the process that is caused in oneself when looking into the eyes of a loved one; what questions does it promote, what feelings, what hauntings? This then being given form and expressed through sound, through music, holding and anchoring the essence of the process, and then being shared with others, who by being in the wash of the music, can be moved in their own way by what the composer connected to, joined, was with. Why is it that the music of Mozart or Vivaldi still has its appeal today as it did when it was written? What vitamin is anchored in that music that still nourishes and uplifts today?
Music is really an essence generating media, a causer of atmosphere and mood, as film makers and soundtrack composers know very well.
The compositions made available by vitamusic are designed to nourish different aspects of the multi-dimensional physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual lives that we each are. It is presented as functional music as opposed to music for entertainment and is intended to assist you with balancing and restoring inner harmonies to improve your overall efficacy in your life pursuits.
Music has the potential of carrying healing and various other potent vitamins which can generate very positive influences into the human condition.

Everything works according to force, electricity and magnetism.
In physics, electro-magnetism involves the study of the electromagnetic force, a type of physical interaction that occurs between electrically charged particles. It is the science of charge and of the forces and fields associated with charge. Electricity and magnetism are two aspects of electromagnetism. Electric and magnetic forces can be detected in regions called electric and magnetic fields. These fields are fundamental in nature and can exist in space far from the charge or current that generated them. Remarkably, electric fields can produce magnetic fields and vice versa, independent of any external charge. An important aspect of electromagnetism is the science of electricity, which is concerned with the behaviour of aggregates of charge, including the distribution of charge within matter and the motion of charge from place to place.
The human is one mass of seething electro-magnetism, upon which the whole of its existence is utterly dependent. For example, if you want to pick up a glass of water, then upon the demand signal being dispatched by the brain, it is conducted along the nerves to the muscles. The force comes into the muscle and causes it to either contract or not, picking up the glass. The heart works by electro-magnetism which can be confirmed by an electrocardiogram. Very recently, biologists have discovered that bacteria — often viewed as lowly, solitary creatures — are actually quite sophisticated in their social interactions and communicate with one another through similar electrical signaling mechanisms as neurons in the human brain.
Everything comes from and appears from electro-magnetic concentrates in one form or another. Take the growth of a carrot from seed to a nourishing vegetable. How does that happen? What is the correlation between FORCE and MATTER? How does matter appear? In the early 20th century, scientists split the nucleus of the atom, by continually breaking it down, until it seemed to disappear altogether, producing a quite large and substantial electrical force. By the reverse process, electrical FORCE condenses to take on the form that we understand as MATTER (Modern physics, astrophysics, and quantum science are discovering that what we call matter isn’t really solid but slower moving exchanges between electrical forces of attraction and repulsion, hence everything works by electro-magnetism). An example of this is water condensing on a window on a cold day.
It is curious that when someone is detecting something that appears out of ‘harmony’, they may ask, “What’s the matter?” Perhaps, this is an attempt to gather intelligence of what may be the CAUSE or the ORIGINATING SIGNAL that is at the core of what is seen or having an expression?
The study of electro-magnetism is an ever opening revelatory science that is making new discovers all the time about what we understand about our lives and the universe we live in. Perhaps, this will promote some new questions in you?
This is one of the foundations that vitamusic research comes out from which represents an unfolding organic process in the discovery, development, and advancement of natural, remedial and restorative methodolgies through the medium of music and sound. It utilizes the natural process of bio-energetic transference, know as healing, in which music and sound can be a conduit for remedy, rebalancing, and realigning. MUSIC, being a cloak for energy, promotes the question, what wrote the music, not who; and what does that cause in the listener, or in the kidneys of the listener?

Fascinating Ways Sound is Being Used Today
There are several technologies out there that can heal wounds with sound. One of them is called MIST, which involves spraying a saline solution over a wound area and applying low frequencies to the solution. It has been shown to have a particularly high success rate in healing certain types of wounds, such as foot and leg ulcers. One study saw 69% of ulcers – treated over 12 weeks with this innovative method – completely healed. While it is not yet readily available on the market, investigations into MIST are ongoing, ensuring that this treatment will attain maximum efficiency so that patients can be healed as fast and as reliably as possible.
Here’s one you’ve probably heard of, but which perhaps you’ve never heard explained. Bats and dolphins use high frequency sounds to see their surroundings, by listening to the sound reverb from the environment and creating a mental picture of where they are. These days, many blind people are learning to do as the dolphins do, by clicking their tongues and listening for the reverberations. There are already many teachers – masters of the new technique – who show other blind people how to themselves pick up the basics of echolocation, and thereby become more independent.
In 1962, Indian researcher Dr. T. C. Singh carried out studies which showed how sound can increase plant growth. After playing Indian music near balsam plants, he found that they had grown 20% taller and carried 72% more biomass. He even found that by having people perform a traditional Indian barefoot dance known as Bharata-Natyam around marigold flowers, they blossomed 2 weeks earlier than the normal. Various other experiments have found that classical violin music has the most positive effects on plants, while rock music can have some of the more negative effects.
Revealing Natural Geometry
Cymatics is the study of geometric forms created by sound waves. The Cymascope, co-created by John Reid, displays the shapes that certain musical notes make by filling water with tiny particles, which form into perfect geometries when exposed to certain vibrations. Musical notes all have their own unique shapes, as do human voices, animal noises and even the echoes of stars and planets. Cymatics is a young science: it is hoped that further studies in this area will help researchers understand the effects of sound vibrations on everything around us. The researches of Dr. Masaru Emoto and his ‘Messages From Water’ photography also points to how sound effects the physical world around us.
Researchers at Princess Grace Hospital in London have been developing a system for destroying cancer cells with sound. Using High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), they have successfully destroyed prostate cancer cells in their test patients, using only sound waves to heat up and kill the targeted cells. This technology was applied to 159 men with prostate cancer, and after one year, 92% of them did not have a recurrence cancer. The procedure only took about 5 hours. Further tests have to be carried out to confirm the success and reliability of this exciting technology, before it can be used by doctors.
Ultrasound – which is similar to echolocation – is used mostly by the medical field, allowing doctors to see inside patient’s bodies. It sends sound waves into a person’s body, and provides us with a digital image of their insides, based on the pattern of reverberation. Many of us, thanks to ultrasound, will have had the privilege of seeings ourselves inside our mothers’ womb; besides this, ultrasound can also help doctors to detect internal injuries and wounds. The next few decades will likely be punctuated with the discovery of new and even more advantageous uses for sound.
