DAVID HYKES & HARMONIC CHANT
It has been an inspiring experience
working with John Bush's visionary film
Dharma River. It has been one of heartfelt
recognition and delight in feeling that
my musical voyage could be so deeply
in harmony with the spiritual music of
Southeast Asian Buddhism so beautifully
present in this extraordinary work.
The Harmonic Chant is a universal music of spiritual resonance based on the omnipresence
in all musical sound of the harmonic series, the equivalent in musical sound
to the pure color spectrum of light. All instruments and voices of music are
composed of the pure sounds of the harmonic series, and it is also the source
of melody, harmony and rhythm. In short, it is the DNA of all music.
