“The music on this album was inspired by the documentary ‘Resonance –
Beings of Frequency.’ Where I learned that the planet Earth has a
resonant frequency of 7.83 Hz. Originally detected in 1899 by Nikola
Tesla, it was Winfried Otto Schumann who formulated the theoretical
aspects in the mid-1950s of the global resonances that are now referred
to as the ‘Schumann resonances.’

The notion that the Earth is an oscillator onto itself was so inspiring.
A flood of ideas for new ambient compositions came to me. Since
frequencies under 20 hertz cannot be perceived by the human ear. I
incorporated the Earth's tone in other ways. Using them as a basis for
sound modulation, binaural beats, pulses and the frequency intervals of
LFOs, filters and oscillators based on the fundamental 7.83 and
multiples such as 14.3, 20.8, 27.3 and 33.8 Hz. As it turns out, the use
of these frequency intervals worked out such that the finished tracks
unintentionally complement each other when played simultaneously in
various combinations.”
