Thanks David. In short I wanted to do some justice to the pioneering contribution you have made to harmonic singing in the DVD. Many of my students have been filmed and I'm compiling video excerpts from people around the world. Please note I have no budget to pay anyone - I'm also not going to charge anyone for being represented. You would be welcome to have a number of video excerpts of yourself. We'll discuss this more shortly. Thanks and Blessings, Dean

Dear David,

I'd like to invite you to be highlighted in the outstanding artists section to be featured in my harmonics DVD, to accompany my new book on overtone singing. The DVD will be a compilation of many contributors and will be free with the book. I do hope you can be in it.

Best,

Dean Frenkel

Harmonic greetings from David and the Harmonic Presence Foundation.

We founded our organization at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York in September 11, 1981.
Harmonic greetings from the Harmonic Presence Foundation, on behalf of David Hykes and our many collaborators, both individual and organizations. May the greatest Harmony come to life!

David founded the universal contemplative music called Harmonic Chant and his first group, The Harmonic Choir, in 1975, in New York. The Harmonic Presence Foundation was founded by David and his collaborators at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York in September 11, 1981, to explore, discover and share connections and knowledge about the harmonics of music, spirituality, mind and medicine.

He began teaching the Harmonic Presence work in Switzerland in 1980.

His spiritual background is the Gurdjieff Work (1970-1993); his spiritual foreground (1975-- ) is in the Buddhism of the Dzogchen lineage of Tibet. His favorite other spiritual inspirations are from the Nondual Advaita tradition as embodied by Nisargadatta Maharaj, and the musical Sufism of Turkey and Persia.

David's teachings, called the Harmonic Presence work or the Harmonic Awareness work, are a difficult-to-conceptualize blend of heart- and harmony-centered spirituality, the intense contemplative vocal music called Harmonic Chant, healing sounds and silence, joyful noise, rigorous contemplative awareness and meditation training, and a healthy dose of funny wordplay, keeping it lively and interesting, avant-garde music, audio art... the soundspace of sacred architecture...

Through the teachings and practices he gives, David shares knowledge and insights about:
1. the uncreated primordial sounds and silent listening awareness;
2 the universally accessible contemplative vocal music he founded called Harmonic Chant;
3 transforming Awareness-based meditation practices
4 harmonic mindfunless training; and
5 the medicine of deep harmonization (including music-based stress reduction, another MBSR!).

David directs a retreat and seminar center in France and makes many international trips sharing his work.

The next concert is in Prague on September 13 and the next Harmonic Presence teachings are at the French center for autumnal equinox, September 20 and 21.

In October and November he will be giving concers and teachings in the USA.

May all beings be happy and rejoice.

In harmony,

Harmonic Presence Foundation

David founded Harmonic Chant --and the Harmonic Choir-- in 1975, in New York.

He began teaching the Harmonic Presence work in Switzerland in 1980.

His spiritual background is the Gurdjieff Work (1970-1993); his spiritual foreground is in the Buddhism of the Dzogchen lineages of Tibet (1975-2008); and his getting-over-the-I remedial reading and contemplation is especially fond of Nisargadatta Maharaj.

The Harmonic Presence work is a difficult-to-conceptualize blend of spiritual teaching, contemplative music, healing sounds and silence, joyful noise, and avant-garde music, audio art and soundspace sacred architecture.

Through the teachings and practices he gives, David shares knowledge and insights about: 1. uncreated primordial sound and silent listening awareness;
2 the universally accessible contemplative vocal music he founded called Harmonic Chant;
3 sometimes almost totally transforming Awareness-based meditation practices* (* hey, these things take time (while giving the timeless);
4 harmonic mindfunless training;
5 and the medicine of deep harmonization (including music-based stress reduction, another MBSR!).

David directs a retreat and seminar center in France and makes many international trips sharing his work.

The next concert is in Prague on September 13 and the next Harmonic Presence teachings are at the French center for autumnal equinox, September 20 and 21.
