Overtone Music Network

a common space & database for harmonic overtones

The Harmonic Awareness work of David Hykes includes a wondrous »music of the spheres« called Harmonic Chant, as well as practices and insights about the essential nature of harmony in the universe, in consciousness, and in our lives. This visionary approach to potential personal and planetary reattunement includes profound and transforming contemplative music, meditation training, and healing sound practices.
David Hykes, an awardwinning composer and singer, founded Harmonic Chant in New York in 1975. Now a respected teacher of musical spirituality and meditation with over 30 years of experience, his early insights into the nature of musical consciousness led to Harmonic Chant, a revolutionary fusion of sacred chant with new realms of overtone and throat-singing. Harmonic Chant is a non-dual sacred music based on the natural harmonics found in all voices, music, and throughout the universe since the Big Bang.

It is truly the music inside everything and available to us all, a music that has been playing everywhere since the very beginning of the universe, if not before. Every musical sound we make or sing is in essence nothing other than the blend of those pure primordial harmonics, ringing still. Harmonic Chant gives life and creative expression to this timeless sacred music, accessible to all and often beautiful beyond words.

The Harmonic Awareness work explores links between this music, the mind of consciousness and awareness, and the medicine of healing harmonization, exploring how they can be brought together in service of the quest for reattunement and the cultivation of the »harmonics of being« -- such as compassion, altruism, love and kindness.

Hykes's work relating music, meditation, mind, and healing harmonization has received awards from many organizations including the National Endowment for the Arts, UNESCO, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Threshold Foundation, and a $ 50,000 Fellowship from the Flying Elephants Foundation, for his work developing
a universal sacred music.

His 11 albums include »Hearing Solar Winds« the most popular overtone album of all time, with over 300,000 copies sold, now celebrating its 25th year, the first with his group, The Harmonic Choir, the West’s pre-eminent overtone ensemble, which he founded in New York in 1975.

Hykes gives concerts, seminars, retreats and teachings in many different countries, sponsored by The Harmonic Presence Foundation. The Foundation is dedicated to sharing the Harmonic Awareness work in its full artistic, scientific, spiritual and healing dimensions, the fruit of these 3 decades years of development and ongoing studies and exchanges with Tibetan, Indian and western masters, musicians and scientists.

It seems that in almost every moment of this universal music of life, whether in our inner or outer worlds, there are four great needs and opportunities present to inform our being of service: listening, attunement, harmonization, and accompaniment.
The aim of the Harmonic Presence work is to help us awaken and recognize reality, the source of true harmony, and to realize its radiance and resonance in all spheres of our lives.
