DE – Raga CDs of the Months (10/2015): NADA – A Concept of Sound (part 1 and 2)

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on October 19, 2015

NADA – A concept of Sound
– part 1: Ahata – The external sound | part 2: Anahata – The inner sound.

In Sanskrit means “Big sound”: Maha Nada. It teaches us the healing effect of the ragas. The complex set of rules for Ragas aim at only one aspect: to create one particular sound (nada). Our monthly radio show deals with this external sound – ahata nada (as part 1). – As 2nd part we will present “Anahata Nada – The path from outer to inner sound“. – Come in and “Enjoy listening to good music !”

In an earlier broadcasting with the show “Nava Rasa-s, the nine moods of Indian Ragas” we experienced that the concept of beauty does not occur. The emotional frame is limited to love, laughter, pity, anger, courage, fear, terror, wonder and serenity.

Ragas not gloss over our sense of hearing, unlike in the visual arts. It’s about the experience of a higher reality and the truth, the genuine = Niranjana (the pure).

In Indian arts, e.g. music, dance and theater the acteurs are aware that the sense for harmony  is determined by the individual imagination and subtle perception of the viewer/listener. In the sound of the music only from the whole of matter, mind, emotions and life itself the creative element is visible. By the harmony of music the original is visible, and our human nature becomes visible, to. Harmony is perfection, a unit of truthful, unclouded perception by the perceiver. It is the Indian (or even Asian) understanding of self-realization. To experience this primary and the creativity of the universe in which God dwells, it is necessary an intellectual/menthal training.

Katyayana (c. 200 BCE)

Katyayana (c. 200 BCE)

In Sanskrit, there exists the term Shabda (= sound or speech). Katyayana, the mathematician, Vedic priests and Sanskrit grammarian of the 3rd Century (BC), describes  Shabda as “speech of eternal validity“. The sound in the human language thus contains both the causal principle, which is subtly placed in sound and expressing the true meaning in the sense of the word (speech).

Om (or Aum) is the syllable that is inherent in the human body as the first vibration and resonance of the non-dualistic universe. Here about Bhartrhari , a writer from 5th century described Shabda as the “inner sound“. Shabda is a unifying insight, identical with Brahman, the supreme consciousness. With Brahman a higher reality can be experienced. Shabda exists and resonates in every living being. It is a kind of fundamental tone in the world. This inner sound, Anahata nada, may be listened from a human with the “inner ear”. With sound yoga (= Nada yoga) and listening to ragas as the external sound – Ahata Nada – one can come closer to this “inner sound”.

DE – Raga CDs des Monats (10/2015): NADA – Ein Konzept von Klang (Teil 1 und 2)

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on October 19, 2015

“NADA – Ein Konzept von Klang”
– Teil 1: Ahata – Der äussere Klang | Teil 2: Anahata – Der innere (stille) Klang.

Im Sanskrit heisst „Großer Klang“: Maha Nada. Er lehrt uns die heilende Wirkung der Ragas. Ihr komplexes Regelwerk zielt nur auf eines: auf ein bestimmtes Klangbild. Mit diesem äusseren Klang – ahata nada – befasst sich der erste Teil, auf Anahata Nada („Der Weg vom äusseren zum Inneren Klang“) kommen wir im zweiten Teil unserer heutigen Sendung “Nada – ein Konzept von Klang” ausführlich zu sprechen.
Schon In einer früheren Sendung „Nava Rasa-s, die 9 Stimmungsbilder der indischen Ragas“ haben wir erfahren, dass der Begriff des Schönen nicht vorkommt. Das emotionale Bild beschränkt sich auf Liebe, Lachen, Mitleid, Zorn, Mut, Angst, Schrecken, Staunen und Gelassenheit.

Ragas beschönigen unserem Gehörsinn nicht, anders als in den visuellen Künsten. Es geht um das Erfahren einer höheren Wirklichkeit und der Wahrheit, dem Echten = niranjana (pure).

Man ist sich in den indischen Künsten, der Musik, dem Tanz und Theater bewusst darüber, dass das Empfinden eines harmonischen Zustands von der individuellen Vorstellung und subtilen Wahrnehmung des Betrachters bestimmt wird.  Erst aus dem Ganzen von Materie, Geist, Empfindung und dem Leben selbst wird das Schöpferische im Klang der Musik sichtbar. Im Harmonischen der Musik ist das Ursprüngliche sichtbar, wir selbst werden sichtbar. Harmonie bedeutet also Vollkommenheit, eine Einheit von wahrhaftiger, ungetrübter Wahrnehmung durch den Wahrnehmenden. Es ist das indische Verständnis von Selbstverwirklichung. Um dieses Originäre zu erfahren, das Schöpferische des Universum, in dem Gott selbst innewohnt, bedarf es der geistigen Schulung.

Sendetermine (Teil 1 u. 2)…

19. Oktober 2015 – 22:00-23:58 Uhr CET (04:00-05:58 pm EST) @ TIDE Radio (DE/Hamburg)

Katyayana (c. 200 BCE)

Katyayana (c. 200 BCE)

Im Sanskrit existiert der Begriff Shabda, d.h. Klang oder Rede. Der Mathematiker, vedische Priester und Sanskrit-Grammatiker Katyayana aus dem 3. Jahrhundert vor Christi Geburt beschreibt Shabda als „Rede von ewiger Gültigkeit“. Der Klang in der menschlichen Sprache beinhaltet also Beides, das Ursächliche, das unterschwellig im Klang zum Ausdruck gebracht wird und die eigentliche Bedeutung im Sinne des Wortes.

OM (oder Aum) ist die Silbe, die im Menschen als die erste Schwingung und Resonanz des nicht-dualistischen Universums angelegt ist. Hierzu wird von  Bhartrhari, einem Autor aus dem 5. Jahrhundert, Shabda als innerer Klang beschrieben. Shabda ist eine vereinigende Erkenntnis, identisch mit Brahman, dem höchsten Bewusstsein. Mit Brahman kann eine höhere Wirklichkeit erfahren werden. Shabda existiert und schwingt in jedem Lebewesen. Es ist eine Art Grundton der Welt. Dieser innere Klang, Anahata Nada, kann vom Menschen mit dem „inneren Ohr“ gehört werden. Mit Klangyoga, Nada Yoga und dem Hören von Ragas, dem äusseren Klang – Ahata Nada – kann man sich diesem „inneren Klang“ näheren.

special feature III for India Music Week (N.Y.): Music, Sound & Language (part 1 and 2)

special feature III for the India Music Week (New YorK): MUSIC, SOUND & LANGUAGE
part 1: Structure of Music & Language | part 2: Interaction – Music & Communication

The relationship between music and language, between sounds and the spoken word or vocals is a very special one. The grammarians of Sanskrit, the ancient Indian science language regard music and language as divergent aspects of one and the same phenomena.

With Indian classial music (Hindustani, Carnatic) there is a multiplicity in common under the topic to “music and language “, which is the bases of the occidental harmonics, dated back to the founder of the mathematical analysis of music by Pythagoras of Samos who had evidenced empirically the harmonic intervals – approximately written before 500 B.C. .

Music seems to be reflected far less vaguely in us than it had been granted so far. Rather our perceptions of sounds are defined very exactly by outlined possibilities and borders. The audiomental system has greater importance than one had assumed recently.

As shown by recent studies the perception of music and ‘music making’ incorporate nearby almost all regions of the brain. The widespread acceptance that music is processed in the right brain hemisphere and language in the left had completely been wrong. The current research shows that language and music are assimilated almost identically. The profound emotional content of music, from felicity to sadness affects particularly stimulating our brain and also produces frequently physically intensively perceptible reactions to the listener.

IMW_logo-newMusic settles visibly in our life, in brain activities which are measurable nowadays and made vividly visible with modern medical imaging techniques e.g. (functional) magnetic resonance tomography (MRT) or Magnetoencephalography (MEG), see picture below.

In part 1 of IMC – India meets Classic’s special feature “Music, Sound & Language” is presented the structure of music & language. The  following part 2 will bring light up the social psychological meaning of music for individual and community interaction processes influenced by the nature of music as communication form.

Die Beziehung zwischen Musik und Sprache, zwischen Klang und gesprochenem oder gesungenem Wort ist eine Besondere. Die Grammatiker des Sanskrits, der alten indischen Wissenschaftssprache, betrachten Musik und Sprache als divergierende Aspekte ein und desselben Phänomens.

Mit der indisch klassischen Musik (Hindustani, Carnatic) gibt es eine Vielzahl von Gemeinsamkeiten unter der Überschrift “Musik und Sprache“, die auch die Grundlagen der abendländischen Harmonielehre sind, deren Beginn man mit dem Begründer der mathematischen Analyse der Musik – Pythagoras von Samos – und seinen empirischen Beweisführung der harmonischen Intervalle auf etwa mehr als 500 Jahre vor Christi Geburt datieren kann.

Musik scheint sich weit weniger diffus in uns abzubilden, als bisher angenommen. Vielmehr wird unsere Wahrnehmung von Tönen durch sehr genau umrissene Möglichkeiten und Grenzen definiert. Dem audiomentalen System kommt eine weit aus größere Bedeutung zu, als man bis vor Kurzem angenommen hatte.

In Teil 1 seines specials No. III zur India Music Week stellt IMC – India meets Classic die Struktur von Musik und Sprache dar. In Teil 2 werden die sozialpsychologische Bedeutung von Musik für das Individuum und seine Interaktionsprozesse aus seiner geschichtlichen Entwicklung und aus dem Wesen der Musik näher beleuchten.

IMW_logo-newDie Wahrnehmung von Musik und das aktiv Musizieren, das zeigen uns jüngste Studien, beziehen nahezu alle Regionen des Gehirns mit ein. Die weitverbreitete Annahme, dass Musik in der rechten Gehirnhälfte und Sprache in der linken Gehirnhälfte verarbeitet wird, war schlichtweg falsch. Die aktuellen Forschungen zeigen auch, dass Sprache und Musik nahezu gleich verarbeitet werden. Der tiefgreifende, emotionale Gehalt der Musik, von Glückseligkeit bis zur Traurigkeit wirkt besonders stimulierend auf unser Gehirn mit für den Musikhörenden häufig körperlich intensiv wahrnehmbaren Reaktionen.

Musik schlägt sich sichtbar in unserem Leben nieder, in Gehirnaktivitäten, die heute mit modernen, bildgebenden Verfahren messbar sind und mit der (funktionellen) Magnetresonanz-Tomographie (MRT) oder  Magnetenzephalographie (MET) plastisch sichtbar gemacht werden können (Bild s. u.).
