The noises of the city – car horns, jackhammers, the buzzing of fluorescent lights, and the like – may desensitize us from natural sounds, just as adapting to loud, boisterous music may desensitize us from soft, subtle music. The festival with the unusual title of Sprudel, Sprudel & Musik”, which strives to present art and nature as a single entity, has been held in the village of Gößl am Grundlsee, with a population of 500, since 2005.
The best way to record the these sounds would be to take an audio recorder on your way to tour or camp. With ego, music loses its ability to connect to people, for it obscures performers from themselves and thus their ability to tap into rasa, those universal emotions whose display inspires our healing and growth.
Animals, on the other hand, are empathetic when they listen to cross-species music , and react with emotions and behavior eerily similar to our own. Thus the yoiks – at least the majority of those I’ve heard this summer at four Sami music festivals – in 4/4, 3/4, and 6/8 get played more.
There are similarities between the modal systems of India (the ragas) and of the Middle East (the maqām system) and between some cosmological and ethical conceptions of music. The closer I get to nature the farther away I get from the busy world that’s obsessed with materialistic things.
Many researches have been done on the physiological aspect of music and it has been discovered that Celtic or Native American music wherein the flute dominates is most relaxing. The sounds of nature makes us feel proud co in nature, as we are in the midst of tropical forests, beaches dreaming… with countless thousands of natural sounds soothing, calming The sound of the mountains, the seas, the animals.
