Do the Present, be in the moment...

The Tao of the Kung is a natural and electronic work composed and performed by Paul Grigsby. He also had some help from a few hundred young frogs in setting up the nice cadence. The piece is based on the note, middle F,  a fourth above middle C. This note also corresponds to the Heart Chakra vibration. It is often referred to as the F-Tone. But this piece is really about being comfortable in the present moment . Check it out below.  It just may take you to a place where time becomes a non-issue. Slow down and take a good look at nothing. You may be surprised by what you find there.

Turn up the Tao of the Kung so it's about the same volume as the ambient sounds around you. When you get it "tuned in", it will appear that the sounds of the Tao of the Kung and the sounds around you seem to come from the same place and share a common cadence. My friend Jing listens to the Tao of the Kung at home, during the day. It's also good to listen to if you have a hard time getting to sleep and staying asleep. It helps you float back into that sleepy feeling.

The Tao of the Kung combines with the other noises of the day to create an orchestrated experience of the moment. There is a natural timing in all sounds that is not always easy to feel. The Tao of the Kung opens a door into that world of cadence and harmony as it relaxes your spirit and brings you into harmony with the moment.

Some vibrations go unnoticed, like subsonic vibrations and supersonic vibrations as well. B-Flat is a a fourth or fifth of F and for the last 10 million years or so it has been playing that B flat out of the event horizon of a black hole in the Perseus galaxy at sufficient volume to be detected from Earth. It bellows b-flat  "57 octaves below middle C". Those vibrations are creating extremely intense heat, power great enough to escape the black hole, that's some serious tone! 

If you listen closely to the Tao of the Kung you will notice the B-flat presence throughout. It resolves to the "F" but the b-flat comes in and out against the constant middle "f" undertone. The B-Flat Mountain Range in Antarctica also plays b-flat through its fluted, wind eroded mountain rocks. "The multi-directional winds in this eerie and isolated wasteland create ventifacts of an exceptional nature, gouged with pits and decorated with flowing flutes and arching curves." 

 

The F-Tone

The F-Tone note is middle "F" above middle "C" on the piano, (698Hz). It has been referred to as the "tonic of nature".  The Voice of the Silence by H. P. Blavatsky says: "The Northern Buddhists, and all Chinamen, in fact, find in the deep roar of some of the great and sacred rivers the key-note of Nature. Hence the simile. (Middle F, the "F-Tone", is the note associated with the 4th, green, heart chakra).   "It is a well-known fact in Physical Science, as well as in Occultism, that the aggregate sound of Nature-such as heard in the roar of great rivers, the noise produced by the waving tops of trees in large forests, or that of a city heard at a distance -- is a definite single tone of quite an appreciable pitch". This is shown by physicists and musicians. Professor Rice (Chinese Music) shows that the Chinese recognized the fact thousands of years ago by saying that "the waters of the Hoang-ho rushing by, intoned the kung" called "the great tone" or "the great emptiness" in Chinese music; and he shows this tone corresponding with the F, "considered by modern physicists to be the actual tonic of Nature." Also mentioned in "Principles of Physics", saying that "this tone is held to be the middle F of the piano; which may, therefore, be considered the key-note of Nature" Middle F is also the tone of the Green, Heart Chakra.
