Music, Notes, Sounds

(The Study of Threes)

In this chapter we're going to explore Threes in various Music, Notes, and Sounds examples, though non-auditory physiological responses ("intonations") are not scrutinized. As with all my threes examples pages, I make no claims as to comprehensiveness since many readers may no doubt come across an example that they have made 'note' of but don't care to provide an example there of. Some people prefer to keep knowledge to themselves because they think it enables them to take advantage of situations (over others), in those instances that such knowledge may be helpful to their own interests regardless of the effect(s) it may have on one or more others.

As with Language, it is imperative for the reader to study the architecture of the ear and overall auditory processes when attempting to analyze Music, Notes, and Sounds, since without an ability to hear, all sounds may be less than an inaudible white noise. See the information via the following link:

--- Language 3s page 1

Let's start off with some simple, what may be called widely known examples, even if the "three" arrangement is not widely acknowledged:

  • Base, Rhythm, Lead guitars in many musical groups.

  • "Testing, 1, 2, 3" is an expression sometimes used to test whether or not a stage microphone is working.

  • "Uh 1, Uh 2, Uh 3" may be used to synchronize the attention of members in a musical group for the purpose of playing a tune and or song. In other instances, someone might do the same by voicing "Uh 1, Uh 2..." and then, as an unvocalized 3rd indicator, everyone begins their synchronized part.

  • 3 musical notes (E-F-G) are said to comprise the variations of sounds emitted by (approximately 30) particular types of sand dunes.

    Here are some other three-patterned sound examples:

    • 3 common black male field cricket notes sometimes translated as "Please-Come-Here!"
    • 3 "courting" chirp of European house cricket translated (by me) as "I-love -you!"
    • 3rd F above middle C is pitch trilled for 1 5 sec. or more: (Black-horned tree cricket)
    • 3 faint notes, Tip-Tip-Tip then a 5 to 20 sec. Tse-e-e-e: slender meadow grasshopper
    • 3-group piano strings: About 58 tones (unisons) have 3 strings - Some tones have 2 strings - The rest, 1 string.
    • The classical musical style of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven is sometimes referred to as Viennese.
    • 3 characteristics of any melody: Range - Shape - The way it moves.
    • In 1957 the composer Gunther Schuller, in a lecture delivered at Brandeis University coined the term "Third Stream," holding that classical music was the First Stream, Jazz the Second and the Third combined the other two.
    • years of age is when Mozart showed signs of remarkable musical talent.
    • 3rd opera of Richard Strauss was his first success.
    • Bells are rung 3 times (in some U.S. schools) to call children to class after a fire drill. (I didn't acknowledge the "3-pattern" of this event until I worked with handicapped kids in a public school setting. I never "saw" it in a 3s context when I attended school.)
    • 3 great Tenors: Luciano Pavarotti - Jose Carreras - Placido Domingo (This embellishment was attributed to them by Publicity standards).
    • 3 female/male singing voice types: Alto - Mezzo Soprano - Soprano/Bass - Baritone - Tenor.
    • 3 rhyme system (terza rima) was used by Dante Alighieri in his famous Divine Comedy.

    *** Stark & Nathanson (1973) differentiated three types of infant vocalizations:

    1. Cry sounds (sounds produced in acute stress such as pain or hunger)
    2. Discomfort sounds (a lesser degree of discomfort such as when not reaching a toy)
    3. Vegetative sounds (coughs, burps, sneezes)

    *** Wolff (1965) described three cry types:

    1. Basic cry
    2. Mad/Angry cry
    3. Pain cry

    *** Truby & Lind (1965) referred to three acoustic types of cry:

  • Phonation (basic cry)
  • Dysphonation (turbulence)
  • Hyperphonation (shift)

    The Ancient Solfeggio Frequencies

    Article by David Hulse, D.D. –

    The 3, 6, and 9

    As we look at the six original Solfeggio frequencies, using the Pythagorean method, we find the base or root vibrational numbers are 3,6, & 9. Nicola Tesla tells us, and I quote: “If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.”

    John Keely, an expert in electromagnetic technologies, wrote that the vibrations of “thirds, sixths, and ninths, were extraordinarily powerful.” In fact, he proved the “vibratory antagonistic thirds was thousands of times more forceful in separating hydrogen from oxygen in water than heat.” In his “Formula of Aqueous Disintegration” he wrote that, “molecular dissociation or disintegration of both simple and compound elements, whether gaseous or solid, a stream of vibratory antagonistic thirds, sixths, or ninths, on their chord mass will compel progressive subdivisions. In the disintegration of water the instrument is set on thirds, sixths, and ninths, to get the best effects.”

    In the book of Genesis it states that there are six days of creation. Yet many talk about the creation week – or seven days, and the Christian Bible views the number seven as the number of completeness. Why Seven? It is due to the influence of the Near Eastern culture at the time in which Jesus lived, when it was believed that there were only seven planets.

    When wrestling with adding a 7th number, I was mystically drawn to an article in Discover Magazine. In his newest book, Just Six Numbers, Rees argues that six numbers underlie the fundamental physical properties of the universe, and that each is the precise value needed to permit life to flourish. In laying out this premise, he joins a long, intellectually daring line of cosmologists and astrophysicists (not to mention philosophers, theologians, and logicians) stretching all the way back to Galileo, who presume to ask: Why are we here? As Rees puts it, “These six numbers constitute a recipe for the universe.” He adds that if any one of the numbers were different “even to the tiniest degree, there would be no stars, no complex elements, no life.” (From Discovery Magazine).

    As some authors have speculated, could these tones have played a role in the miraculous shattering of Jericho’s great wall in six days before falling on the seventh day? Some scientists are now stating that if we have been created, we most likely would have been sung into existence. Is it possible that the six days of creation mentioned in Genesis represent six fundamental frequencies that underlie the universe? Religious scholars believe both events occurred as a result of sounds being spoken or played.

    Other scientists, including the geniuses Nikola Tesla, Raymond Rife, as well as Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, and Chladni, all must have known about, and used the concept of, the inherent power of threes, sixes, and nines. So we are dealing with three powerful numbers: 3-6-9. Everyone of the six Solfeggio Tuning Forks all add up, individually to the Pythagorean scheme of 3-6-9. In fact, because there are two sets of 3-6-9 (anagrams) in the solfeggio, they are even more powerful as these combinations serve as “portals” to other dimensions!

    Is it possible to play the three tones seperately say a 3 and a 6 and a 9 or is 369 the frequency ?

    Thank you for asking that question, David. Adding the sound vibration numbers resolves to either 3 or 6 or 9 in the Solfeggio frequencies. The slowest Solfeggio tone is UT at 396 hertz. The other tones are faster at 417, 528, 639, 741, and 852 hertz. All these tones are easily heard by the ears where a 3 is not in the normal range of hearing though you probably can feel it.

    369 is the frequency resolving to 9 using numerology. Thank you for asking.

    I had a dream last night that showed a white wall with a plaque on it that read ”3, 6 and 9" then I woke up. Wierd huh? Not sure what to think at this point but usually dreams come true for me almost like visions into the future of something. Any thoughts would be helpful. P.S. I am a Beatles fan and portayed John Lennon for years in the Beatles tribute band Liverpool (which is now up on YOUTUBE). John was always facinated with the number “9", although I haven't given it much thought really until now. Actually, the BEATLES were a very mystical unit of sorts and it almost seems numerology played a very big role in everything they did in the last couple of years together. Love, Glen Royer (singer/songwriter of Liverpool, Greenhouse and New concept and holder of best music video of the year for 1991).

    Hello Glenn,
    Yes, the Beatles studied much of this information. I find going within and quietly asking will bring the information through into practical life energies for MY “now” experience. I find the Solfeggio Tones encourage my body to resonate the whole tone harmonics of 3, 6, and 9 rather than the fractional tones used for popular music. Congratulations on your insight. Many happy returns on this information! Heidi

    My mother-in-law just recently finished chemo-therapy for breast cancer and told me yesterday that she had a mole on her back that has been sent for byopsing to check for melanoma. I told her to start listening to the 528hz frequency. I completely believe in the vibrational change we’re all going through.

    Hello Anna,
    You were interested in additional information. Based on your email follow-up, I did forward your contact information to a similar survivor who tests completely clear after surgery and chemotherapy failed to cure her. Her regime included but was not limited to sound therapy. She used the sound therapy to address the underlying causes and other lifestyle changes including water therapies to clear her body of the dross and restore her immune system to balance. Many well wishes to you and your mother, Heidi
