The Evolution of the Music Scale: From 444 Hz to 440 Hz and Beyond
Music has played a significant role in human culture for thousands of years
As music evolved, so did the tools and techniques used to create and perform it. One of the most important developments in the history of music was the creation of a standardized musical scale. The concept of a musical scale dates back to ancient Greece, and it has gone through numerous transformations since then. Before the equal temperament scale became standard, different musical scales were used in different regions and for different purposes. These scales were often based on natural harmonics or the tuning of certain instruments.
The Shift from 444 Hz to 440 Hz and Its Impact on Music
In the early 20th century, there was a movement to create a standardized musical pitch across the world. The International Standardization Organization (ISO) established 440 Hz as the standard frequency for the musical note “A” in 1939, replacing the previous standard of 444 hertz that had been used in some regions of Europe. The decision was based on a compromise between different tuning systems and was intended to be a global standard for concert pitch.
The shift from 444 Hz to 440 Hz was not without controversy. Some musicians and musicologists argued that the new standard would lead to a loss of harmonic richness and emotional depth in music. They claimed that the higher frequency of 444 hertz was more in tune with the natural harmonics of the human ear and was therefore more pleasing to listen to. However, these arguments were largely based on subjective opinions rather than objective scientific evidence, as the spiritual relevance and the knowledge about power of the 528 HZ miracle frequency got suppressed by various interest groups. Knowingly dissonance, anxiety and, fear was spread by bringing the harmonious music out of tune.
In music, tuning means adjusting the pitch of a tone. In humans, it means adjusting your emotional and physical state to align with your environment — literally “tuning in” and harmonizing with yourself and what is around you. The Lovetuner has a profound effect on the body, mind and spirit. The Lovetuner aligns you with the 528 Hz frequency, the vibration of love and releases stress and anxiety instantly.
Exploring the 528 Hz Frequency and Its Healing Powers
Our entire universe is comprised of light and sound, frequency and vibration. The connections between music, cosmos and nature have been known since ancient times. In 1978 Hans Cousto, a Swiss mathematician and musicologist, compared the frequencies in planetary orbits; in architectural work, in old and modern measuring systems, in the human body, in music and in medicine and discovered their connection. John Lennon produced his song “Imagine” using the 528 Hz frequency tone. In music the 528 hertz frequency refers to the note “Mi” and is traced back to the expression “Mi-ra gestorum” on the scale, which in Latin means “miracle”.
The Lovetuner Mission to Bring Music Back into Harmony
Despite the controversy, the 440 Hertz standard quickly became widely accepted and is still used today. It is important to note that the 440 Hertz standard only applies to concert pitch and does not dictate the tuning of individual instruments. Some instruments, such as the piano, are tuned slightly differently depending on the preferences of the performer or the musical style being played.
It’s part of the Lovetuner mission to educate musicians and DJ’s to bring their music back into harmony. Lovetuner founder, Sigmar Berg, shares his knowledge how to create harmonic music by adjusting the A tone to 444 Hz and achieving that the C tone is in the 528 Hz the so called Love-frequency. However, the 440 Hertz standard is not the end of the story as more and more people are becoming aware about our manipulated musical scale. There are other tuning systems and frequencies that have emerged in recent years, which challenge the traditional equal temperament scale. One of these can be found in the Lovetuner and when used it emits the 528 Hz frequency, also known as the “evolved and forgotten note.”
