Introducing Harmonal Binaurics, our fleshy new mind control drone synth. It combines Binaural Beats with Isochronic Tones to hijack your brainwaves and bend your unconscious mind. It's a psychoacoustic powerhouse – and just generally an intuitive and playful musical instrument.
Harmonal Binaurics is centered around Binaural Beats. Technically binaural beats require headphones to work their magic, though they sound great no matter how you listen to them. Binaural Beats work by sending subtly different frequencies to each ear. Rather than hearing two frequencies, you mostly just hear one frequency, but a third rhythmic frequency – THE BINAURAL WOBBLE – is created by your brain. The speed of this wobble is the difference between the two pitches (for example, 420hz in your left ear and 426hz in your right ear creates a 6hz wobble in your brain). We don't know why the brain creates this, but what this hypothetically does is something called Brainwave Entrainment – it synchronizes your brainwaves to the wobble and induces altered states of consciousness. This may sound crazy – but who cares – it sounds great.
Harmonal Binaurics doesn't just do binaural beats – it also does Isochronic Tones. This is just like binaural beats, but doesn't require headphones – instead it uses a repeating tone that can induce similar results. With Harmonal Binaurics, you can use both of these techniques at the same time for some really weird spatial and consciousness bending experiences .
But wait, that's not all. Harmonal Binaurics doesn't just do one Binaural Beat and one Isochronic Tone, IT DOES SEVEN. These seven beating tones are tuned to a user scaleable harmonic series.
