We are in Venice, Italy, tracking with Ronan Chris Murphy for my new record, ELECTRICO, and an Italian artist from Treviso, Andrea Gorgi Zuin. Everyone calls him ZU. He plays a Hang (hang drum) tuned at A=432 Hz, not the arbitrary A=440 that we know of in Western pop music today. A=432 Hz is known to be the natural sound of the earth, a frequency that vibrates more naturally in nature, and has healing, energetic powers.
If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration ~Nicolas Tesla
We ran across ZU playing near St. Mark’s Square yesterday in Venice. His sound was so beautiful that we had to have him play on the record. So, we introduced ourselves, and today he showed up to record some tracks for us. Fantastic! There will definitely be a song or two on my new record with A=432 Hz. Check out the video from our experience with finding ZU, to hearing his music, to tracking our own, new music for #ProjectELECTRICO.
I can’t wait to hear how the beginnings of this song (created by ZU on the spot, and sourced through Ronan) will unfold into a pop song on my new record.
