Alexandre Tannous On "Nature Of Reality Radio"
Alexandre Tannous has been active as a musician, educator, composer, and an ethnomusicologist. His ethnomusicological research investigates issues of acculturation, community, musical identity in an urban setting, and the concepts of talent, charisma, and leadership in music. He is a sought-after ethnomusicologist/composer consultant on projects in recording studios helping creating awareness in amalgamating various musical cultures. For the past eight years he has been researching the therapeutic and esoteric properties of sound from Western scientific, Eastern philosophical, and shamanic societal beliefs perspectives. This has lead him to design a protocol of an integrated experience he calls “Sound Meditation” in which he raises an awareness to how a specifically designed sound can have the ability to help us to disconnect from habitual patterns, and guiding people in how to disconnect from the mind in this setting while listening to the specific traditional instruments he plays. This unique field is discussed in my interview with him at http://youtu.be/KujYBXtp5JQ
