David Hykes' Harmonic World
Since The Absolute Sound mag suggestion, many, many years (eons?) ago... Hykes and his Harmonic Choir and "Hearing Solar Winds" on Ocora vinyl accompanied yours truly for the last 27 years, now... in the meantime, I (badly) learned harmonic throaty double overtones singing and bought some more Hykes' discs and disks, 'til these present days
Only one hour ago I had an after dinner listening at my studietto... some Nigel Kennedy violin solo by Bela Bartok's and Hykes' "Harmonic Meeting". on Celestial Harmonies label...
Great, timeless, both easy and deep, deeeep music... Brotherhood and Hallelujah tracks remind me to something I only can imagine... as liner notes suggest, a time where Christianity was a Judaism sect and religion wasn't "church", that sort-of secret multi/national society which rules the world.
Mysticism is and should be a very personal activity, ABSOLUTELY money and (ANY) power unrelated, and Buddhism is masterful and GREATLY inspiring about this... and this music is as personal and mystic as it can be.
It's a ladder to a purer life and a richer relationship with our very self, the truest, crystal clear essence.
If you never listened to him... well, your very self will sure appreciate his music...
"David Hykes has opened a new dimension in music, bringing us the music of the spheres.
It is the music of overtones which hold sway throughout the universe...
As music, these wondrous sounds retain an extraordinary mystery, for they
make every listener feel humble and yet part of the great Whole."
--the renowned violinist, conductor and yogi, Lord Yehudi Menuhin
... I humbly agree.
