Back to 432 Hz

Posted in News, Politics, Science by Dutch Freedom on April 27, 2008

Sound and music consist of vibrations, the more vibrations per second, the higher the pitch. The unit for this is the Hertz, abbreviated Hz. 432 Hz is the natural “keynote” in the universe, as opposed to 440 Hz, which is the standard in the music nowadays. In 1939 the Nazis determined 440 Hz as the keynote in the music, until then 432 Hz was the standard worldwide. Many protests of prominent musicians didn’t help unfortunately. Most musical instruments are also adjusted at 440 Hz nowadays. What are the advantages of 432 Hz? 432 Hz is nicer for hearing, is softer and brighter than 440 Hz. 432 Hz also prevents hearing damage. You probably know when you hear very loud music, for instance in discos, it can hurt to your ears. With 432 Hz, you have no pain in your ears, at a very loud volume. 432 Hz is more favourable for the chakras too, which has a good influence at the spiritual development of the music-lover. The committee ‘Back to 432 Hz’ wants a worldwide re-introduction of 432 Hz as the keynote in the music, like it was before 1939. The committee thinks it’s important that at first so many people as possible get acquainted with the difference of 8 Hz. If many people know this and also believe the qualities of 432 Hz, it could hopely move the music-industry to change the standard finally.
The Dutch journalist and music-lover Richard Huisken has taken the iniative of this committee.

    I was wondering if there is a program to convert music from 440 htz to 432 htz. I can’t read Dutch so I can’t read the website. I really like the sample that is given. Much easier to listen to. If there was a program to do this then more people will be able to convert the music and spread the word quicker. This would be a lot easier than trying to change the music industry standards. They are more interested in copyright lawsuits and making money right now than changing the standard.

    Yes, there are programs that can convert music from 440 Hz to 432 Hz. Audacity for example.

    Found it via Niburu.nl

    If I find something more, I’ll post it here.

    I’ve been playing guitar and mixing for around 8 years, I recently begun feeling something and begun experimenting with different frequencies for tuning my guitar, 432 hz sounded strange and different at first, but as I got used to it something happened, it helped my songs evolve and become something I’ve been trying to get them to be for a long, long time. 432 hz does feel more natural, and fits better mathmatically.

    We’ll have a myspace soon under Black Sheep Syndrome. This isn’t an add as our space doesn’t even exist yet, simply wanted to share that I discovered 432 Hz today and will be stickin with it.

    @ Vaporization: Thanks! The translation is from http://www.TerugNaar432Hz.org It has a new text. (Also in English.)
    @ Philip Arbon: Thank you for your story. Feel free to promote your music.
    Update: I’ve heard that digital audio formats don’t support 432 Hz. Is that true? 😕
