Last but not least of these quotations regarding Sound, Vibration and Music, sound  as it relates to the work of some famous personalities!  Enjoy.

51) “During the reign of Rameses III (the Twentieth Dynasty) Egypt saw a flowering of it civilization and the harp became the royal instrument of priests and kings. Often times they had as many as 21 strings. Under the manipulation “the Minstrels of the Gods” the music was of rare potency. “Musical Medicine” was an actuality. Healing, along with numerous so-called “supernatural feats” was attributed to this art.”
Corinne Heline (1882-1975)

52) “Sound is the force of creation, the true whole. Music then, becomes the voice of the great cosmic oneness and therefore the optimal way to reach this final state of healing.”

Auguste Gratry 1870

54) “The famous Greek physician Hippocrates administered musical treatments to his patients in 400 B.C. Although this type of treatment did not originate with him, it found in him an exponent of the highest order. With the increasing materialism of Western civilization, the major tenants of ancient musical therapy have been either forgotten or discarded.”

59) “We trust that the magic of sound, will contribute an ever greater measure to the relief of human suffering.”
Robert Assagioli M.D.(1888-1974)Founder of Transpersonal Psychology

60) “It has been found that musical vibrations make their impact upon the entire body, being picked up by the nerves, spinal column, and even by the bones. This is why people who are deaf can react to music. It has also been demonstrated that music affects the pulse, respiration, and blood pressure; but it’s deepest effects, and those from which most of it’s curative properties are derived, are mental and emotional.”
Doren Antrim (Music Is Medicine) current

61) “Their savage eyes turned to a modest gaze by the sweet power of music.”

William Kindler (contemporary)

65) “In the etheric body are centered the forces animating man’s physical vehicle, so disease is evidenced in the etheric before it manifests in the physical. The etheric, composed of finer, more attenuated substances than the physical, is corresponding amenable to vibratory influences. It is upon the former that harmony and rhythm have the most potent effect. Good music readjusts its molecular structure in accordance with the original divine plan, the archetype, and refines and accentuates it’s vibratory currents. All forms of beauty and harmony increase this regenerating process.”
Corinne Heline (1882-1975)

66) “Music is the language of some other state, born of memory. For what can wake the soul’s strong instinct of some other world like music?”
Letitia Elizabeth Landon (1802- 1838)

67) “Music is the mysterious key of memory, unlocking the hoarded treasures of the heart. Tones, at times, in music, will bring back forgotten things.”
Lord Edward Bulwer Lytton (1803-1873)

68) “Music, once admitted to the soul, becomes a sort of spirit, and never dies. It wanders perturbedly through the halls and galleries of the memory, and is often heard again, distinct and living, as when it first displaced the wavelets of the air.”
Bulwer (1803-1873)

69) “Oh music! Thou who bringest the receding waves of eternity nearer to the weary heart of man as he stands upon the shores and longs to cross over! Art thou the evening breeze of life, or the morning air of the future one?”
Jean Paul (1763-1825)

70) “Music… a kind of inarticulate, unfathomable speech, which leads to the edge of the Infinite.”
Carlyle (1795-1881)

71) “Music expresses that which can not be put into words and that which cannot remain silent”
Victor Hugo (1802-1885)

Aristotle (384-322 BC)

75) “Deeply listening to music opens up new avenues of research I’d never even dreamed of. I feel from now on music should be an essential part of every analysis.”
Carl Jung ((1875-1961)

77) “Now we must learn to judge a society by its sounds…
Jacques Attali, (1943- ) “ The Political Economy of Music”

78) “It struck me recently, that one should really consider the sequence of a protein molecule about to fold into a precise geometric form as a line of melody written in a canon form & so designed by Nature to fold back into itself, creating harmonic chords of interaction consistent with biological function”
Anfinsen (1916-1995) (Renowned Biochemist/Nobel Prize Winner)

79)“Consciousness is somehow a by-product of the simultaneous, high frequency firing of neurons in different parts of the brain. It’s the meshing of these frequencies that generates consciousness, just as tones from individual instruments produce the rich, complex, & seamless sounds of a symphony orchestra”
Francis Crick (1916-2004) (Molecular Biologist/Co-Discoverer of DNA and its significance for information transfer in living material)

80) “At a certain stage of our progressive attainment, every Initiate undergoes an “Illumination by Sound” in which the Music of the Spheres becomes to us a living reality. When the magical powers of sound are rediscovered and scientifically directed to the specific purpose of healing… and when man has learned how to release the mantraic powers embodied in such inspired utterances, he will master the energies transcending even those unleashed by the atomic physicist of today. They will be energies of yet another and higher dimension.”        
Corinne Heline (1882-1975)

81) Insanity is the rebellion of a person against certain experiences over which he has no control. The conscious mind center in the cortex (upper brain) is the area where mental disease becomes established. The seat of feelings and emotions is in the lower brain. The latter it appears, is not involved in mental maladies. Music affects and influences a patient through this lower brain center. Musical therapy meets NO barriers in mental derangement cases as does the written or spoken word that works through the upper or conscious area.
Dr. Altschuler (1942)

82) “…man is a musical being. His origin is in the spoken Word. By sound was he sustained and by music he evolved. One day he will recognize music as a vital factor in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual evolution of the whole human race.”
Corinne Heline (1882-1975)

I love jazz. I call it freedom music. It promotes special values. I love intelligent people and good conversations.

Some people ask me how music relates to art. Personally I find they go hand in hand. Music is what turns me on to painting. It makes me see colours
