(Chakric, adj. in the term of chakras, described as energy centers of certain qualities associated with modal states of consciousness and subdivisions in a system of integral functioning of the human being.
It is assumed that chakras can be influenced by means that associate to their innate qualities, like the frequencies of light ( color ) and sound ( tone, tuning )
Root Network as plants grow it. The substantial primal anchor into a substrate of existence in an outer world or interconnected Network
A little History
This project began approximately 2 years ago when Audiosyntax (David S.) dwelled into the conceptual limitation of music in order to create a more defined quality, and therefore influence.
The idea was to make one track devoted to each of the seven chakras referencing a color.
He started by synthesizing and collecting samples wich contain the base note of that color frequency and the atmosphere he associated with each specific one.
He started with one track for each of 7 colors, rising in BPM in the shift from dark and slow, to light and fast
Later in the experiment a thought of adjusting the BPM to the respective color in each track but this resulted in a decision he had to make converting a frequency of a tonality into a beat will leave you with a BPM that is two high the be perceived as a rhythmic structure.
The answer is, due to the law of the octaves, to half the frequency stepwise until you reach a speed that is within the humans range of perceiving something a distinct rhythm.
Now he had to decide wich speed he was gonna use, for example 400bpm is already well manageably and the next lower octave of 200bpm is readily deployed by and upcoming scene of psychedelic artists, but had been used widely by classical composers and gipsy balkan folk music 100bpm is in the area of downtempo beats whereas after with 50bpm we are approaching an experimental realm of ambient beats merging into drone like structures around 25bpm or even 12,5bpm
As all of these alternatives seemed valid at some point he realized he didn’t want to limit the experiment to a certain to decision but he had to explore them all
it seemed analogous to the different modalities of human states of being, like being activated, or calmed down, focused or dispersed
so he went for all of them
this means that wach original of 7 tracks would be transformed into at least 4 or 5 other remixes inside the range of what i believed to makes sense to explore musically
as an example
the first chakra deals with Fear/Grounding the overcoming of fear, the rootedness in stable rhythmics
its color is a deep red, its warm and comforting womb like nature, as well as its reassuring strength, but also a huge threatening void of existence, Fear and terror, Red warning, Black darkness.
my intent was to play with booth states but focus on directing towards a balance, Transcending Fear, rattling loose the energies. and settling them in a stable groove
The original track he set at 172bpm
tuning the bpm to the color red left me with a frequency of 182BPM
derived from that point he found that the double of 364BPm is still interesting as well as the lower versions of
91BPM, 45,5BPM and 22,25BPM
The 4 remixes of the first track of 172 were crafted entirely of the samples that had been created in the initial synthesis session in respect to that energy and atmosphere.
The Project Continues with the Color of Orange and 176 BPM
alternatives with the adjusted Beats per minute are
2.1 24.65 BPM
2.2 49.31 BPM
2.3 98.63 BPM
2.4 98.63 b BPM
2.5 197.26 BPM
And so forth Continuing through the colors of ;
so in total a series of 7*6 tracks were produced emerging along genres as DarkPsytrance, Hitech, Glitch , Downtempo, Ambient, Drone and progressive
all in all he like the recently discovered term, “Genre Fluid”
So now you know
you are welcome to ask in case any of unclarity or further interest in his conceptual approach.
thank you for bearing with us until this point
Audiosyntax will be releasing each color as 5 track albums per Month after month on Alice-D Records, plus the initial set of seven tracks containing a progression of all seven colors as one separate album.
with each new color he will release a preview of the next color to come.
in humble faith of your appreciation,
Audiosyntax – Xhakrik Rhizoma…
