Dear Ms. Mattson, Your book, Ancient Sounds Modern Healing, is brilliant and I absolutely loved it. It is an amazing collection of interviews, funny asides, and deeper truths. I’ve had a hard time putting it down, except when i was doing my own experiments with sounds. Thank you for inspiring me to not only come up with great sound experiments, but also for all the ideas I incorporated into my own music. It’s all very-exciting, and as someone who is also interested in real history/alternative history (I mean it, I’ve researched a lot), I totally loved looking at sound from from antiquity and secret societies. I’m sure this information has been kept very secret for a long time, and it's all such a revelation for those of us who are looking for ways to heal the energy of the planet in the now. Thank you universe for this book!
This book was provided to me by the publisher through NetGalley free of charge and with no compensation in exchange for an honest review. I was completely enthralled when the author, Jill Mattson, was discussing Cymatic Patterns. There was also the history of various cultures and how they utilized sounds. In fact, she discussed how many religions around the world have in their sacred texts that the deities created the world through sound.
The author not only provided the ancient history about the use of sounds and music, but also the more modern scientific beliefs behind it. She also provided alot of great references. I suggest you visit each of the websites that she provides throughout the book. You will learn quite a bit.
