    Lightbulb 440hz Music - Conspiracy To Detune Us From Natural 432Hz Harmonics?

    Most music worldwide has been tuned to 440 hertz since the International Standards Organization (ISO) endorsed it in 1953. The recent rediscoveries of the vibratory / oscillatory nature of the universe indicate that this contemporary international concert pitch standard may generate an unhealthy effect or anti-social behavior in the consciousness of human beings.

    A=432 Hz, known as Verdiís ĎAí is an alternative tuning that is mathematically consistent with the universe. Music based on 432 Hz transmits beneficial healing energy, because it is a pure tone of math fundamental to nature. There is a theory that the change from 432 Hz to 440 Hz was dictated by Nazi propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels. He used it to make people think and feel a certain manner, and to make them a prisoner of a certain consciousness. Then around 1940 the United States introduced 440 Hz worldwide, and finally in 1953 it became the ISO 16-standard.

    have looked at this before on another forum ...



    tis a very strange one,i read all the linkies,i even detuned my guitar to 432,tbh there wasn't much difference in the playing aspect,no wars were averted and no planets aligned ...

    it didn't feel more natural ... maybe my ears have been forced over the years to hear 440 ... myself i have bloody great relative pitch,i can hear a bad note over 50 fields ...


    but then again,i have tuned my guitars purely by ear while changing strings until it felt right ... i have never checked the tuning with a good tuner to see what pitch they were at ... maybe they were to 432 ... or something that would calculate to a harmonious world ...


    next time i change em ill try to remember to test this

    haha, that would be an awesome trick

    No, it is more like this:

    Most (some?) sequencers allow to set the tuning for your song, which is set to 440Hz as default.

    So setting this value to 432Hz means, that every frequency coming out of your sequencer is pitched down 8Hz.

    I hope i got that right, if i am wrong, somebody please correct me. Guitarplayers will definately know more about tuning than i do

    I've also heard about this frequency...

    In all my travels though I've never read a wise person talking about this subject in this way. [edit] This might be read the wrong way...what I meant was "In all my travels I've never found any of the super-wise ones talking about this in this way.[/edit]

    One side to this topic is, that while pink may be a calming colour for some, another person may have been traumatised in a pink room meaning this colour will not be calming for them.

    After learning the piano a little, and after learning how to tune them, then tuning a bunch of pianos, I have to say I think 440Hz sux a little. I need to experiment now too, so I can see what I think of 432...

    Yeah using sound to hypnotise, or other such nasty things is well known in our history. If 440Hz was in fact the result of a project for one of these nasty outcomes, it seems to be a fail. I've listened to Beethoven played by a concerto pianist on a 440Hz tuned grand and it sounded heavenly to me.



    I also think 8Hz isn't really going to do that much to us, considering the amazing number of frequencies that already exist in our bodies from their own atomic sources...

    I have been playing and practicing some blues stuff together with a bluesharp player and more often than not he prefers my ac. guitars to be tuned to 441Hz. We tried various ways.. 438 then 439.. 442.. I cannot really hear much difference but he says the harps and guitar's sound gel in much better if the guitar is tuned to 441...

    Thanks SW, I knew of these VSTs.
    I find it hard as it is to cope with "standard" 440Hz I would not dare to venture into microtonal tunings, although a few times I had to adjust the guitar's tuning to play on top of a pre recorded VSTi, which led me to think that "same" has a very subjective meaning, specially in music
