Tone and Frequency Generators that Heal
Solfeggio tones were introduced by Dr. Joseph Puleo and Dr. Leonard Horowitz in the seventies, and were inspired by real facts. The name of these tones – for example – finds their roots in the eleventh century, when music theorist Guido of Arezzo developed a six-note ascending scale: ut, re, mi, fa, sol, and la. The seventh note, si, came a little later. These names were taken from the first verse of a Latin hymn to St. John the Baptist, Ut Queant Laxis.
Ut queant laxis, resonare fibris
Mira gestorum, famuli tuorum
Solve polluti, labii reatum
These names are still in use today in musical notation. They have precise frequency associations, octave by octave, which are derived from a particular musical temperament. The frequencies that were associated by Puleo and Horowitz are different: they were generated from the Bible’s Book of Numbers, using a Pythagorean reduction algorithm based on our decimal number representation, applied to verse numbers of Chapter 7.
Many people experience healing effects from these tones, hence the numerous requests I received asking to add a Solfeggio tone generator to this website. Each slider controls a particular Solfeggio frequency (sliders 4 to 10). You can play several of them simultaneously if you like. You will find the effects associated with each slider in the preset list. Because my Noise generators have ten sliders, I extended the seven original Solfeggio tones with two other frequencies that are often used as extensions of the Solfeggio tones (sliders 2 and 3), and a special one (the first slider).
The special one has been tuned to 69.3 Hz. It reassembles the same digits as the Solfeggio base tone Ut (396Hz), and divides them by ten in order to produce an even stronger decimal representation! Try this: play the Dr. Pigeon tone tone along with any of the other tonal generators found of this website. Not only will it sound good, but it will act as a resonating deepener, enhancing the depth of each generator and the healing effects associated with other frequencies. Am I serious? As serious as doctors Puleo and Horowitz were!
