Audio Pharmacology™ was recently mentioned in an interview with the Bigelsen Brothers in regards to “what is Chi Gong/Qi Gong”. They talked about the results before and after practicing to my Theta Wave Qi Gong DVD.

Holographic Audio Pharmacology
For those of you who know me (Adam Bigelsen), you know that I am a musician and music has been a huge part of my life. The last bunch of years I have been really excited to learn more regarding the world of sound therapy. One of the things I did recently, was that I installed transducers in my massage table to create a sound therapy table to experiment with. We have definitely seen some interesting things in the blood after tuning fork sessions and sound baths . As I was laying in bed the other night doing some research, I came across a unique sound healer, Shannon Harris. Shannon does what he calls Audio Pharmacology. As it just so happens, Shannon was going to be in town the next five days. Josh and I attended Shannon’s lecture, as well as a Theta Wave Medical Qi Gong session, and we each scheduled private Audio Pharmacology sessions with Shannon….. ALL AWESOME! We have done Medical Qi Gong sounds and movement before, but Shannon added color visualization with each organ, and incorporated brainwave entrainment music as well…..AWESOME! (He has a dvd available) Of course we looked at blood before and after the private sessions, and the results are below. I had a knee issue in particular that has been lingering. At this point I’m going to let Shannon explain a little bit about what he did during our sessions, and then Josh will explain the results as seen in the blood.
For Adam’s Audio Pharmacology™ session he pointed out having knee pain from an old injury. I tend to work on clients on different energy/body levels at the same time. During his 1 hour session I used my Audio Pharmacology™ 5 Element system music in which he listened to music tuned to the TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) energy/organ/emotional system while working directly and around the knee area with a deep tissue/muscle massage utilizing blood/qi/circulation frequencies. I applied a tuning fork to the higher chakra areas to induce a relaxed brainwave state during the treatment. There was moderate heat applied during the sound massage followed by nano crystal laser therapy along with photonic light therapy in the area as well. This process affects the patients internal healing processes on many different levels simultaneously.
Research and Development into Ambisonics, ASMR and binaural field recordings.
This pic above is a new array I just designed that will capture ambisonic, ASMR, X/Y pattern and true binaural play back field recordings in nature.
In traditional of my love for travel, culture, nature, science, research, sound energy, health, camping and invention I’ll went on a birthday excursion on my rare palindrome birthday! It’s not by happenstance that my birthday falls on this once in 900 year numerology phenomena!
[Pictured Below] My cabin is quite unique as well in design. I’m going to test the acoustics there as well.

Sono Geometry Experience
I would like to personally invite you to a special event that’s a part of my Dark Matter artist residency at Elastic Art’s. I’m curating a series of events entitled “EVOLution: The Healing Art’s Movement”. I have to say I am extremely excited about the 4 part series as I’m finally getting a chance to present Audio Pharmacology™ sound sciences, innovation, invention and research in an interdisciplinary interactive installation that will be indeed a unique experience for everyone. This collaboration is with another Sound Scientist/Sound Enthusiast and inventor like myself Rod Echols! We’re looking to have this experimental experience at Elastic Art’s on second Sundays starting from September 8th to December 8th. Each monthly event will entail a live interactive performance exploring scientific sonic/sacred geometry along with metaphysics orchestrated to planetary, seasonal, solar, lunar, organ, DNA, chakra, environmental and cosmological alignments. It will be a pleasure for you to join us on this unique sound journey as we explore territories engaging entertainment via energy medicine, technology, science, and innovation. Come experience the experiment with us!
Sono Geometry Experience (SGE)
Entertainment for healthy brain and body entrainment.
1. relating to sound
the branch of mathematics concerned with the properties and relations of points, lines, surfaces, solids, and higher dimensional analogs.
The Sono Geometry Experience (Shannon Harris, Rod Echols & Vandorn Hinnant) is a experimental Healing Art’s sound performance featuring vibro-acoustics, cymatics, sound levitation, sacred/sonic geometry, physics, instrument design and visual display installations to induce a live interactive audio/visual transformation. Our mission is to use entertainment applications to inspire healthy brain and body entrainment experiences. Audience participants are expected to encounter relaxation, stress removal, calmness, pain relief, mindfulness, inner connection, and focus. “When the math and sciences add up so does the intended results.” – Shannon Harris

Serenity Bliss (Brain/Breath/Body Entrainment)
Available in Download
The Kotamo is a combination of 3 different instruments: the koto, the tampura and the monochord. The monochord was redeveloped by Pythagoras going as far back as ancient Egyptian (Kemetic). The tampura origins are from India and is used in accompanying other traditional instruments. The Koto is a classical Japanese melody string instrument. This instrument bridges 3 cultures in which all three instruments purposes where primarily used/played with the intention for spiritual music, esoteric music/studies and cultural musical performances.
I was blessed with the opportunity of having a unique version of the Kotamo designed where all 3 instruments reside on one side. In the Serenity Bliss journey I’m using this instrument with a special array of acoustic and electronic instruments to induce different brain/breath/body entrainment states of being. This is great for meditation, Qi Gong, yoga, thai chi, studying, free-form dancing, ballet and relaxing.

Shannon Harris interview featured in the first edition of the University of Chicago Portable Gray Magazine along with a solo Audio Pharmacology™ performance at Fulton Recital Hall.
I would like to extend a special thanks to Ytasha L. Womack for interviewing me for the University of Chicago’s Portable Gray magazine. I also would like to thank Seth Brodsky and staff for inviting me to be the featured performer yesterday at their launch party in the amazing Fulton Recital Hall. It’s my second time bringing out the Sacred Triune and so far it seems to land me in amazing spaces/places. The first performance made its debut on NBC and now Fulton Recital Hall for the University of Chicago’s music department.
I was shocked to see a famous renowned composer, Augusta Read Thomas, in the audience whom I met last year when recording audio interviews for the Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra. She had many questions about my custom instrument.

University of Chicago Family Day – Jan 2020
Yesterday I spent 2.5 hours sharing the science and physics of sound, energy and light with families at the University of Chicago’s Logan Center. This is a sample of what that looked like. I look forward to presenting more Audio Pharmacology™ playshops in the near future. I would like to thank the staff and program organizers from the Reva and David Logan Center for the Art’s for having me.

Live PA Institute Day Conference (University of Chicago)
We put together one of the most amazing science/technology meets performing arts conferences I’ve ever experienced! We had lectures from complex systems, virtual reality studios, archiving, unorthodox production techniques, live PA demos and the art of “performing electromagnetically” where I discussed audio alchemy. Afterwards we had an amazing live band performing material for us to sample and remix later for our compilation. We ended the night with electronic performances in which I played with the event organizer Brother EL joined by Jonathan Woods. Sickness!! I’m excited about next year! All of this happened at the Gray and Logan Centers at the University of Chicago! See you next year!
