BIOACOUSTICS
BioAcoustics can most aptly be described as a cross between music therapy and biofeedback. It uses voice spectral analysis as a tool to identify and interpret the constant, complicated frequency interactions within the body. BioAcoustics can most aptly be described as a cross between music therapy and biofeedback. It is related to music inasmuch as specific combinations of sounds are used; but not necessarily sounds that would be considered musical by even the most lenient critic. Biofeedback comes into play as low frequency sounds are presented to elicit specific biological and emotional responses. The technique has provided insight into the possibility that the frequencies contained in the vocal patterns provide a holographic representation of the human body. BioAcoustics seeks to influence the systems within the body that produce, interpret and use frequency.

JACOTTE CHOLLET: MULTIDIMENSIONAL MUSIC
Jacotte Chollet creates her music from a deep meditative state. Until 1985 she was Associate Producer and Director of over fifty documentary films for the French National Television on the cutting edge of science, psychology and philosophy. In 1985 she had a powerful inner voice experience and has since dedicated her life to the exploration of the world of vibrations, music and subtle energies. She spent nine years of years of research and therapy through "harmonic resonance" with multidimensional music showing its specific capacity to connect with the source of higher consciousness within, to initiate a holistic transformation on a quantum level and to restore integrity of the energy field, with an emphasis on cancer cases. Blood tests have shown that after an exposure of one hour of this music, there is a dramatic increase in hemoglobin and an enhancement of the immune system.

Covering subjects ranging from music CAI and desktop publishing to notation, sequencing and MIDI, and multimedia and CD audio, this book was designed for a complete undergraduate or graduate course devoted to music technology. However, because of its comprehensive, systems approach, it can also serve as a supplemental resource for other courses in the music curriculum, or as a handy reference tool for all musicians who use, or want to use, technology in their art.

Different patterns indicate different mental states, such as rest (occipital Alpha), deep sleep (central Delta), meditation (central and frontal Theta), physical activity (wide-spread Beta).  Hemi-Sync's audio binaural beats influence these brainwave patterns and in concert with other components of the Hemi-Sync process provide experiences in focused states of consciousness.

INTERNATIONAL HARP THERAPY PROGRAM
For centuries, the beneficial relationship between music and healing has been well established. Music played on the harp has several unique healing properties. The resonance from the strings, including the range of pitch and tonal color, set up an important relationship between the sound and the recipient. Historically, the harp has been a symbol of relief and comfort.  Practitioner graduates of the International Harp Therapy Program use the small harp as a bedside instrument with the intention of supporting the recipient's goal of healing. This goal may be emotional, physical, mental or spiritual in nature.

THERASOUND PSYCHOACOUSTIC METHOD
As a composer, recording producer and a therapist, David Ison has had a deep interest in the relationship between the mind and the body and the power of music to affect that system. After surviving a serious injury, he set out to create therapeutic music that really worked. He had an idea of how to use certain types of chords to affect a person's breathing patterns, thereby facilitating the condition known as the relaxation response. With this goal in mind, he made some musical experiments in his recording studio.  Music, when used properly, can produce a profound state of deep relaxation, well-being and personal awareness that is a useful adjunct to the services delivered by health care professionals. The TheraSound Psychoacoustic Method developed by David Ison is currently being used at thousands of Health Care facilities around the country.

It has helped adults fight depression, learn foreign languages faster, develop better communication skills, and improve creativity and on-the-job performance. Many musicians, singers, and actors were able to fine-tune their skills by using the Tomatis Method.  Today, the Tomatis Method is used in over 250 Centers worldwide.
