Alexandre Tannous - Exploring Sound.
A presentation at The National Arts Club, NYC | April,2015
Humans have been drawn to music since the beginning of time. Ancient and contemporary religions, shamanic societies, mystical and spiritual sects have revered sound to be the ultimate source in the universe and intricately connected to consciousness.
Free Your Mind features top-caliber whistle-blowers and researchers from across the country who will shed light upon our world’s problems and bring forward empowering solutions.
The Fourth Annual TEDxBrooklyn: “EVERYONE ONLY” event took place on December 6, 2013 at Brooklyn Bowl. The talk was about Alexandre’s research on sound; specifically on the protocol that he has designed.
We experience much of the world through our ears and auditory system, which sense and translate the vibrations around us into the sounds we hear. Although we are immersed in sound nearly every moment, like a fish that is unaware of the water, we are barely aware of the miracles at work.
Sound’s impact on human culture extends far beyond speech and music. The ancients revered sound as the ultimate source in the universe, and recognized its intricate connection to consciousness. And shamanic societies used sound to perform healing ceremonies at a level that is still beyond our understanding.
