"The knower of the mystery of sound knows the mystery of the whole universe" - Hazrat Inayat Khan
My name is Alexis Holland, and my business/life music mission is known as Harmonious Holistics.
For the past 7 years, I've been diving into this incredible culture of music through many different cultural ceremonies - many refer to it in general, as Sound Healing.
'Sound Healing' itself is a relatively new term, but the practice has been around since the beginning of time when humans discovered their ability to sing, chant, and pray.
Have you ever noticed how you feel after the choir sings? After you listen to your favorite song when your sad? When you stumble upon an old woman singing in her native language? There is more than just 'feeling' happening there..
In recent years, science has taken a new turn and has decided to focus on different practices that counteract the effects of stress on the human body. One of those focuses has been sound, which leads me to the "why" behind my music :)
By utilizing these extraordinary instruments such as Crystal Bowls, the Handpan, Tuning Forks and specific percussive rhythms alongside my voice, a very special frequency is emitted to the body. Signals are being sent throughout the entire nervous system, straight to the heart and into the brain - optimizing and regulating the functions of all the major systems in the body. That's just on a scientific level! Emotionally, this music is incredibly moving as well.
I am launching this Kickstarter so that I can receive the funds I need to become my own producer. The funds will go directly to quality recording equipment and software that I will have forever to create, record, and share as much of this music as possible. My projects will include (but aren't limited to):
- Music for Float Tanks/Spas
- Healing Modalities such as Massage Therapy, Acupuncture, & Yoga
- Dance music with a platform of education/activism as well as molecular healing (a whole new kind of dance experience I will couple with yoga and savasana at the end & beginning of my shows)
- Collaborations with world class musicians with missions ;)
Time and Time again I have witnessed the most beautiful miracles come from this music... We are just at the brink of discovering its potential and I can't wait to be apart of that movement. Anything you can donate sure does help.
Thank you for believing in me :)
Please take a listen to my first album: A Voice for the Voiceless. It has my heart and soul woven throughout and utilizes all the instruments I listed above as well as a special message about our environment and culture as a whole. Here is the link :D
Risks and challenges
Thankfully, I don't see any risks with the completion of the music - only the birth of more to share with the world.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
