Overview

According to a peer-reviewed study out of the University of Chicago, “A moderate level of ambient noise is conducive to creative cognition.” In a nutshell, this means being a tiny bit distracted helps you be more creative.

According to a Dr. Leonard Horowitz, 528 Hertz is a frequency that is central to the “musical mathematical matrix of creation.” Called the “LOVE frequency” and “miracle tone” is purported to be the DNA Repair Frequency because it resonates at the “heart of everything”.

The “Solfeggio” frequencies contain the six pure tonal notes which were once used to make up an ancient musical scale.

Western Music is tuned to 741 Hz, which is in exact dissonance with with 528 Hz. VIDEO

“White Noise”

There are two types of ambient/background “white noise”:

a). Continuous tones of sound.

b). Ambient sounds such as what you hear in a cafeteria.

c). Music without lyrics (electronic or orchestral)

PROTIP: I combine them together – played through and over-the-ear headphones – to drown out the music at Starbucks or other places which play music with lyrics that put an “ear worm” in my head.

PROTIP: High quality high-definition headphones provide cleaner, clearer deep bi-aurial tones.

Sounds from Nature

https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/binauralBrainwaveGenerator.php has wonderful descriptions of many sounds (after you scroll down the pleading for money).

  • Sounds take several seconds to load.

  • The site also shows photos of the site where the sound recording was taken, along with a travelogue by the recording engineer.

  • Listeners post their revervie about each soundscape.

  • My personal favorite: Furry Friend - that’s cat purr, without the allergy.

“Pink noise” has a deeper feeling and thus a more comfortable, natural sound than white noise. In technical terms, its power spectral density is inversely proportional to the frequency of the signal, rather than equal intensity to it. This means the lower frequencies in pink noise are louder than the higher frequencies.

An even deeper sound than Pink noise is Brown or Brownian noise is based on Brownian Motion – the random motion of particles suspended in a fluid (a liquid or a gas) resulting from their collision with the fast-moving molecules in the fluid. It’s also called “Red noise”?

Offline

That’s a quote at the https://coffitivity.com website which offers ambient sounds such as “Morning Murmur”, “Lunchtime Lounge”, and “University Undertones” so you can pretend you’re ignoring other people talking, but not to you.

Mobile apps

According the LifeWire

White Noise Browser button

Install this Chrome app gives you a button to click for instant white noise from Noisli.com. It generates 3 different white noises and enables you to combine several sounds to achieve either higher productivity or relaxation. The sounds: rain, storm, birds, leaves russeling, mountain stream, seashore, dripping water, fireplace, crickets, coffee shop, fan, and coffee house.

Optionally, save the money it takes to fly to Paris, Brazil, and Texas to hear what ambient sounds like there.

Music without lyrics

You’ll be using network bandwidth with this technique.

PROTIP: Here are my criteria for selecting titles:

  • no commercial interruption that disrupt flow

  • Long songs (at least an hour or 2)

  • PROTIP: Unfamiliar tunes are less distracting than soundtracks from movies or songs with lyrics I’ve memorized, such as Greatest Showman, etc.

PROTIP: Download sound files and play it in a loop. Then you won’t be sucking network from others on the internet or using data minutes on your mobile plan.

Canon in D (German Baroque composer Johann Pachelbel’s Canon) was originally scored for three violins and basso continuo and paired with a gigue. It’s famouse for being played in weddings. It inspires me to be a better person.
