About Each CD
- Vibrational Healing Music Vibrational Healing Music In this recording, de Muynck organically combines ambient sounds of the Earth, from the syncopated rhythms of crickets and cicadas to the warm and prolific drone of honeybees. A Sound Healing masterpiece that shows we are all one vibration. Includes a tribute to composer Jim Wilson and his recording God’s Cricket Chorus. Here de Muynck offers you a therapeutic healing journey in her signature tuning of Ohm, known for its ability to soothe, balance, and rejuvenate. The body, in its natural healing intelligence, is able to assimilate Ohm with all its beneficial overtones, and utilize these properties on a vibratory level, de Muynck explains. You will find yourself transported as your vibrational being harmonizes with the life-affirming frequencies of the Earth.
- In The Key Of Earth A deeply meditative interpretation of our planet as a living organism, with its pulse, breath, rhythms and cycles. In the Key of Earth is my interpretation of the primordial, says de Muynck, when the sounds and harmonics of creation became musical. Features Ohm Tuning Forks (four octaves) Bass, Vocals, Trumpet, Baritone Sax, Native American flute, Brazilian berimbau, Ohm Crystal Bowl.
- There’s No Place Like Ohm – Vol 1 Listening to There’s No Place Like Ohm is Musical Medicine; it is immediately relaxing, a beautiful Sound Odyssey that allows you to resonate and journey with the Ohm tone like never before. Many chant the Om mantra, however, this CD was created without human voice, in the musical key of Ohm, and focuses instead on the voices heard in nature through wind instruments and animals sounding. Listen to the heralding of the Armenian duduk, the haunting voice of the didgeridoo, the whisper of the Native American Flute, the whale’s song… Tantric Buddhist scripture tells us that Ohm is the most powerful vibration. The Ohm frequency is based on the elliptical orbit of the Earth as it travels around the Sun through 4 seasons. Therefore, Ohm can be thought of as our musical center of gravity – the music of our sphere. *Deeply relaxing, ideal for shamanic journeying, stress reduction & pain management. Recommended for treating insomnia, bodywork therapies, spa treatments and to enhance the healing resonance of Ohm Tuning Forks.
- There’s No Place Like Ohm – Vol 2 Journey with Ohm for a transformational Sound Healing experience. Immerse yourself in the hypnotic drone and vibratory resonance of this healing earth tone. Publisher’s Favorite As a subtly textured wave of sound, the Ohm drone carries and lifts each featured instrument. This beautiful interweaving of natural and animal sounds creates an unhurried dialogue between wind and string instruments, and the earth sounds that inspired their voice. *Deeply relaxing, ideal for shamanic journeying, stress reduction & pain management. Recommended for treating insomnia, bodywork therapies, spa treatments and to enhance the healing resonance of Ohm Tuning Forks.
About the Composer:
Marjorie de Muynck’s musical style and instrumental choices reflect the importance she placed on nature and acoustic instruments, especially those that mimicked sounds found in the voices of animals and the elemental world. De Muynck reminds us that the ancients have long known of the power of sound, music and vibration to induce altered states for prayer and healing rituals. In her works, she never lost sight of the musical; her compositions celebrate the Earth as a living organism. Born into a musical family, Marjorie de Muyncks interest in tuning forks, sound and vibration was awakened at an early age. Marjorie first held a tuning fork in 1963 to tune her guitar, and then began applying the sound vibration to her own bodya sign of things to come. Marjorie was re-introduced to healing with tuning forks in 1981 from the piano player in her band after suffering from migraine headaches.
