With Ethnomusicologist, Sound Therapist and Sound Researcher
LISTEN TO AUDIO
My talk will address the nature of the power behind sound, its connection to the nature of intelligence in the universe, and to music and harmony. I will also address how humans have used it in the past and present in various contexts and settings.
Sound has always been the most impactful and reliable tool that humans have used to expand consciousness, and to further spirituality and my discussion will address the various aspects involved.
I will also address the pitfalls involved in working with sound, why they tend to occur, and how to be aware of them and to avoid them. These pitfalls are not always labeled as such and have proven to create enormous hindrances to the practitioners and everyone involved in this practice.
About Alexandre Tannous
Alexandre Tannous is as an ethnomusicologist, sound therapist and sound researcher. He has been investigating the therapeutic and esoteric properties of sound from three different perspectives – Western scientific, Eastern philosophical, and shamanic societal beliefs – to gain a deeper understanding of how, and to what extent, sound has been used to affect human consciousness. This search has led him to the intersection of art, science, philosophy and spirituality.
The material he transmits about sound is based on a multidisciplinary research over 20 years: observations he made during his fieldwork in over 40 countries, scientific studies, personal experiences, and data collected from thousands of people he has worked with doing sound therapy. This has led him to a deeper understanding of how sound reveals and unlocks hidden powers we have within us to promote profound inner transformation and healing.
