Using ancient solfeggio tunings, from somewhere deep and true arose devotionals and irrevencies for to smile at our human follies.
The Taodogs are embarking on a perilous and mysterious adventure. It will take them into uncharted waters and there is no guarantee of their safe return.
Doug and The Taodogs recently came across clues to ancient hidden musical knowledge. The clues tell of healing powers found in certain sound frequencies. What is the significance of 432hz? Is it true that a note vibrating at 528hz is being used by biochemists to repair DNA? What is the reason for the magic of a Stradivarius violin? How do solfeggio tunings affect the cells in our body?
We find this all very compelling. Some music apparently has power to transform life. Nice. This is the purpose of our recording project. It is our intention for this music to transmit whatever energy lives 'within and between the notes' of these ancient tunings.
We'll be exploring the mystical solfeggio tunings using song forms and instruments from around the globe. Recording has already begun and we are looking to wrap it up by late August.
The Taodogs are eager to share what they discover with the world and we would love your support. Check out the rewards. Your pledges will cover studio time, album design, duplication costs and reward distribution. Thank you for sharing our enthusiasm as we birth this dream into reality.
Doug and The Taodogs.
