The power of music’s ability to heal is undeniable. We’ve all experienced a concert that left us feeling elated. There’ve been times when we’ve cried because we’ve simply listened to a song that struck a chord (no pun intended). But the healing power of sound dates back to before we were listening to our favorite emo songs on repeat. From chanting and drumming to the soothing melodies of a flute, sound has been employed as a tool for healing, relaxation, and spiritual growth.

In modern times, sound healing is often experienced in yoga studios when someone plays crystal singing bowls, chimes, and gongs. The frequencies of the instruments being played entrain the brain and body into a parasympathetic state. This is a foundational principle of sound healing. These methods of sound healing promote rest and relaxation, but there’s more to sound healing than yoga studios and entrainment.

Why Sonic Trip Over Traditional Sound Healing?

At Sonic Trip we build upon the foundations of sound healing by incorporating neuroscience and music theory to provide you with a psychedelic experience without consuming any drugs.

What makes Sonic Trip a psychedelic sound experience? Let’s explore the intricate mechanisms of tension, dissonance, and bilateral stimulation– the key pillars in what sets Sonic Trip apart from your typical sound healing experience.

It’s Neuroscience and Music Theory

Tensions & Release

At the heart of Sonic Trip lies the interplay between tension and release, a phenomenon deeply rooted in neuroscience and psychology. When we experience tension in music, whether it’s a suspenseful buildup or a dissonant chord progression, our brains respond by activating the amygdala, the emotional center responsible for processing fear and arousal.

As tension mounts, our bodies enter a state of heightened awareness, preparing for an imminent release. This process triggers the release of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and endorphins, which induce feelings of pleasure and relaxation. By carefully orchestrating these moments of tension and release, we guide listeners on a journey of self-discovery and emotional catharsis.

Dissonance & Consonance:

Dissonance and consonance serve as powerful tools for altering consciousness and inducing transformative states of mind. Dissonance, characterized by the clash of frequencies and irregular intervals, activates multiple regions of the brain involved in perception, emotion, and memory.

Studies have shown that exposure to dissonant music can lead to increased brain activity in areas associated with introspection and self-awareness, facilitating profound shifts in consciousness. By embracing dissonance, we create a sonic landscape that challenges conventional notions of harmony, inviting listeners to explore the depths of their subconscious minds.

Bilateral Stimulation:

Bilateral stimulation, a technique borrowed from therapies such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), plays a major role in the efficacy of Sonic Trip. By playing instruments capable of producing binaural frequencies, we induce a rhythmic pattern of neural activity known as bilateral auditory stimulation.

This rhythmic stimulation synchronizes neural oscillations across both hemispheres of the brain, promoting coherence and balance within the central nervous system. Research suggests that bilateral stimulation can enhance neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to reorganize and adapt in response to new experiences. In the processing of traumatic memories and emotional healing, bilateral stimulation is key.

The science and theory of sound healing offer a compelling glimpse into the intricate relationship between music, neuroscience, and consciousness. By harnessing the principles of tension, dissonance, and bilateral stimulation, we unlock the transformative power of sound to provide you with a psychedelic-like experience without consuming any drugs.
