The field of Soundwork is ancient yet new. Passionately drawn to the field of musical psychoacoustics-the study of how mind's perceive music and sound-I could find no university curriculum. So I took five years and traveled America, meeting and interviewing intelligent and innovative modern day soundworkers. They are sonic inventors, frequency scientists, and altruistic philosophers. I call them Sonic Alchemists and they have become my teachers. To this list I must add Dr. Alfred Tomatis, widely thought of as the "Einstein of the Ear." While I have not met him, I have steeped in his Method and theories and believe his research forms the theoretical foundation for the new field of Soundwork.
It is truly my privilege to make the thoughts, experiences, and scholarship of these delightful souls available to those, like myself, who are inextricably drawn to the amazing power of music and sound.
