I’m not going to reinvent the wheel here by saying that music and sound have healing powers.
This fact, known to some cultures and communities for ages, has also been proven by modern science. But we don’t put this valuable knowledge to practice enough in contemporary music.
Aboriginal artist Boorook wants to change that. With his new release, he reminds us of the 528hz frequency, aka ‘the love frequency’. And we could all use some more love these days, right?
What’s your favourite band? Which music genre are you drawn to the most? And how does it make you feel? Answering those questions will surely tell you heaps about your current state of mind and emotional needs.
It’s not only the sound itself that influences your mood, however. Some frequencies can evoke certain feelings and have profound effects on the body and mind as well. Hence, they are frequently used in sound therapies.
The 528 Hz frequency, commonly referred to as the ‘love frequency’, is one of them. Its effects on the human psyche have been widely studied for centuries, and the research is still ongoing.
What has been confirmed is that it belongs to the so-called ‘solfeggio frequencies’ – a combination of notes credited with being the source of health, longevity, wellness, life balance and recovery. They can significantly decrease anxiety, reduce stress and promote relaxation, too.
The ‘solfeggio frequencies’ were already present in Sanskrit chants or those sung by Gregorian Monks. But they only entered the Western World’s alternative health therapies in the 1970s, thanks to Dr Joseph Puleo.
What’s incredible about the 528 Hz frequency in particular is that it exists in virtually every living thing, including the human DNA and chlorophyll, the green pigment found in plants. That’s why it’s linked to a deep-rooted relationship with nature and strengthening co-creative relationships.
So its frequent association with compassion, understanding, (inner) peace and openness should not be a surprise. Even The Bible references it, albeit in a different context, directed towards supernatural and divine causes.
All those findings about the 528 Hz frequency point to a simple conclusion: we should all be constantly seeking exposure to it. And one of the most pleasant ways of finding it is through music.
I won’t burden you with the technicalities of how exactly it can be incorporated into songs – let’s leave that to the professionals. Just know that John Lennon’s “Imagine”, for example, was written using its mysterious properties. And maybe that’s the reason pretty much anybody in the world knows the song.
Here’s where Boorook’s newest release is of interest, too.
Boorook is the moniker of Brett Clarke, an Indigenous singer/songwriter and composer who self-produces his music. He is a rising star in Australia’s music scene, carving out a unique path with his soulful voice, thought-provoking lyrics and commitment to creating music that promotes healing and inner peace.
The beginnings of the ‘Boorook’ project go back to November 2019. Hailing from a small town in the state of Victoria, Australia, the independent creator has always been drawn to music as a means of self-expression and connection with others. This passion led him to explore various genres and styles before finding his true sound in an unusual blend of trance, psychedelic pop, rap, and electronic music.
But it’s not just Boorook’s musical style that sets him apart. It’s also his genuine belief in music as a powerful tool for promoting emotional and physical well-being. As a passionate advocate for mental health, the artist is keen to make an even bigger impact on the music industry and beyond. Thus, he is committed to using his platform to raise awareness of and support for mental health initiatives and environmental projects.
Boorook also strives to create positive change and advocates for social justice for his people. His music is grounded in the traditional stories and wisdom of Aboriginal communities, manifested on the ultra-modern stage of World Music. From sweet lullabies and sad love songs to proud protest and groovy dance rhythms, he creates songs that continue to grow and evoke a strong sense of unity.
It looks like, with each release, he breaks new ground in the music industry incorporating healing frequencies in his songs in a way that is both subtle and effective. Hence, his sound is infused with a sense of positivity and hope and resonates with listeners on a deeper level.
His brand-new single, “Don’t Say Goodbye 528hz” featuring Yuji (a mysterious vocalist I can’t find much about online), is one of those compositions.
This song has the potential to positively impact your energy and mood. The songwriter has expertly incorporated the 528Hz frequency into the track, providing a truly uplifting and emotional listening experience.
“Don’t Say Goodbye 528hz” is a beautifully crafted song that showcases Boorook’s signature sound and Yuji’s incredible vocals. The lyrics tell a heartfelt story of a relationship on the brink of ending, which is also a topic anyone can relate to.
Plus, the production on this single is top-notch, making the song both fresh and timeless.
As a result, the track will hit you right in the feels. It’s clear that Boorook has poured his heart and soul into this project. And the result is authentic, raw, and truly captivating.
So if you’re having a really bad day and need some emotional healing, turn on Boorook’s song and let ‘the love frequency’ work its magic.
