Expanding Tonal Awareness: A Musical Exploration of the Evolution of Consciousness Guided by the Mon (Used)
by Ruland, Heiner
Publisher: Steiner Books
Binding: Hardcover with dust jacket
Book ID: 9781855841703, 1855841703
This book charts a practical path toward a deepened musical understanding. It illuminates the panorama of humanity's musical past and suggests what may happen -- and needs to happen -- to music in the immediate and more distant future. The implications of this book for composition, musical education, and therapy are immense.
Ruland shows how the fundamental elements of music embody distinctive modes of consciousness. He examines the musical systems of ancient humanity and goes on to draw a vivid picture of our contemporary musical situation.
This is more than a theoretical treatise on the nature of music, however -- it is a work to be understood and experienced through musical practice. With the help of the monochord, the reader, with the minimum of technique, is able to explore new and unfamiliar musical realms.
Heiner Ruland, born in 1934, studied music and comparative music at the Freiburg Music School. Having discovered ancient intervals and scales and the twelve-tone musical system, he began to compose. Since then, organs and various key instruments have been developed according to his suggestions based on ancient scales. He also taught music at the Benefeld Rudolf Steiner School before becoming a therapist and developing his own form of music therapy based on spiritual science. Since 2001, he has taught as a guest lecturer in music history at the music seminar in Hamburg.

The book s language has eluded deciphe...More

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press
Limited to 800 copies
The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
