At the beginning of the 20th century, the Russian mystic and composer Alexander Skriabin discovered a chord which he felt would "lift the audience to an exalted state... musically aligning humanity with the kingdom of nature." He called the chord
That's the name given by yogic gongmaster Don Conreaux to a band of musicians from around the world who've been playing together since 1992. Mysterious Tremendum uses tonal resonance of ancient, indigenous, and in some cases orchestral instruments to create an environment of sound that can bring listeners to altered states of consciousness, opening them to healing, and connecting them with more expansive states of reality.
Conreaux has spent most of his life working with, researching, and teaching the use of sound for healing and transformation. He began studying yoga as a young actor in Hollywood in the early '50's, simultaneous with a career in both mainstream and underground theatre and films. "In 1969 I was introduced to the three main instruments we use in Mysterious Tremendum, the gong, the bell and the conch, as meditation instruments," he says. "We meditated on the tones they made.
The gong was used to help people transcend their physical limitations."
He immediately got a gong, and ever since he has pioneered, or resurrected, the use of gongs in meditation, yoga, and bodywork massage, including a 6 year stint as Gong Workout Specialist at the Beverly Hills Health Club and his present private practice of yoga and healing in New York City, and presenting seminars and concerts extensively in England, Australia, Poland and the USA. A founding member of the Tibetan singing bowl band, One Hand Clapping, Conreaux has played the gong in jazz and symphonic orchestras, and developed teaching tools and recordings on gongs and the mind/body connection.
"The secret of the gong is its tremendous potential for healing and rejuvenation," he says. "That's really what we want to bring out to the world. Because the gong covers the full spectrum of sound, it vibrates all the cells and bones and organs, some more than others, depending upon the pitch of the gong. You feel an influx of energy coming from it in your body as well as hear it. This "musical touch" which actually turns the body into one big ear, creates a sense of ecstasy of well-being."
The earliest music, according to Conreaux, was basically tones, which combined in mysterious ways, "master musicians would gather together and play spontaneously, without written music in a kind of telepathic resonance," he says. "This particular type of music had a magic in it insofar as it aligned the player and listener with the devic, or nature kingdom, and in this way attuned them with the planet as a whole.
But, music is changing the time, and the ancient always comes back to purify the end cycle of music," he continues. "In Mysterious Tremendum we have a collage of culture-the didgeridoo from Australia; the conches, which have been used all over the world, from the Native Americans here to all over the East; and the gong, used by Mayans, in India, in Bali, China, Japan, Korea, Turkey, etc. These instruments give out living tones that are organic. With this type of music, nothing is ever the same. It answers some sort of primal DNA urge for the roots that go way beyond lifetimes."
The music of Mysterious Tremendum is not beautiful in the same sense that violin music is beautiful, Conreaux says, adding that it's more accurately a force of energy, "like a divine engine, affecting the body's meridians. By and large, after it's over, you just feel great," he says. "You feel like you've been healed by the spirit of nature. And the wonderful thing about it is that the instruments heal the player while the player is playing the instrument."
"The return of happiness and the spiritualization of matter," read the characters engraved on the face of a Chinese gong dated 600B.C.E. As no two concerts have ever been the same, Conreaux and his friends can only promise an evening attuned to harmonize the spirit the audience brings with it. Recent appearances have ranged from a concert at the Open Center, where they created "Jurassic Park Sonata" complete with "Dino Romp" to a series of evenings at the Gay Men's Health Crisis, where they have presented "healing gong baths" for clients with life-threatening illness.
The audience is encouraged to bring tone-producing instruments-drum, rattle, flute, bells- "and become part the roar of the universe," as Conreaux puts it.
THE ORIGIN OF YOGA
Don Conreaux, Yogic Grand Gongmaster
The purpose of yoga (meaning to bind) was called the 'raising of Mother Kundalini'(the life force at the base of the spine). Yoga had its origins in India in the Sat Yuga, the Age of Gold, over 26,000 years ago. This was a long peaceful age of abudance in which humans had plenty of time to search within.The yoga of the raising of the Kundalini at this time blossomed organically, out of the intuition and spontaneity of the practitioner. The goal of the yogi was to ascend into the immortal realms of pure spirit, to imbibe the intuitional nectar of enlightenment, irradicate disease and find liberation from suffering. This was called Samadhi.
In 600 B.C., during the dark age of Kali Yug, signified by Iron, these practices were written down for the first time by Patanjali in India and thus gained a structure that evolved into various systems given out by contemporary Gurus. This structure was called the Eight Limbs of Patañjali's Yoga.
Ultimately, the students of yoga were to gain enough systematic knowledge of yoga techniques, that they could tap into the original or primal yoga of spontaneity, intuition, and creative freedom, a condition that modern yogic practitioners might refer to as Super-mind.
The seed mantra of yoga is AUM or OM. It is the sound of the Cosmos and is the sound that constitutes the Akashic Realms (the non-material etheric plane), the source of Samadhi. This universal tone of pure resonance is produced elegantly by the disc-shaped instrument called the Ancient Gong.
Music to Evolve By, the Sacred Gongby John Cardano
Moment by moment, we are affected by the multitude of vibrations that surround us. The music that we listen to is one of the conscious choices we make concerning our vibratory environment. Listen to your favorite music, what does it do for you? How does it make you fell? Gong music is markedly different. The mystics of old felt that the Sacred Gong was the incarnated embodiment of a high creative intelligence. In human form this would be called a Teacher of Truth. Gong were also considered like cosmic engines, delivering "universal life force" to people.
The Gong was the first musical instrument synthesized by humans, around 3500 BCE in Mesopotamia. Wheat was the big food commodity on Earth at that time. Huge stone bread ovens became so hot that the copper and tin flowed from the rocks onto the oven floor. These metallic elements melted together into a thin metal disc, when cooled they produced a great resonant sound.
The struck tones fully simulated the beginning word, the sound of OM, the glorious roar of the Universe. Consequently, these flat metal discs were named after the sounds that they madeŠ Gongongong. There was a marked difference in some of the gongs that had a mysterious element added to them. The gongs that had rare fallen pieces of meteorite in them, produced more resonant power and so they were known as Sacred Gongs. The unknown rare element in them is now known as nickel.
Master gong makers meditate for a long period, hammering and listening to each gong they're preparing for acoustical birth, until they feel the presence of the gong's most resonant tone. Their objective is to build a living vehicle for the incarnation of a high creative intelligence, a Buddha of Sound. Such a meditative and creative process takes 6 to 12 months. Too many hits and the gong is considered useless and has to be re-smelted.
According to sound researcher, teacher and therapist, Gongmaster Don Conreaux, the Gong has been used as a spiritual quickener. On a physical level it was used to regenerate the life force of an aging body. The seeker experiences a multi-level influence by the rolling waves of gongtones. Conreaux calls these sound waves feeling ones" because they are kinesthetic, tactile, and sensed by the physical body. The receiver of gongtones registers the vibrations through the skin, muscles, bones and fluids of the organs and cells.
Today, Gongmaster Don Conreaux offers an increasing variety of Gong music. His intensions are obvious; experience the joy and fruits of the gong. He has developed his unique offerings over a period of more than 40 years in sound research, sacred arts, yoga and bodywork practice. In the summer of 1984, traveling West Coast to East across the United States, Conreaux was part of the Mahatma Gandhi Salt March, sponsored by the Nike Company. He performed social ceremonies with the ancient gong in each city as they met with local and state dignitaries. The original march was to the sea to procure salt to strengthen the weakened will of the population, so they could resist tyranny in a non-violent way, and have the strength of spirit to not cooperate with evil. It is not difficult to see that the entire world may need this salt" to transform nationalism and corporate politics into proper respect for the Earth and the Good of All.
In 1987, at the World Union of Cities for Peace convention in Madrid, Spain, Conreaux presented the idea of a Global Network of Peace Bell gardens. It won the unanimous endorsement of the 90 Mayors from cities around the world. Obviously, this is a man dedicated to planetary harmony and spiritual growth. Conreaux presents gong music in a full variety of planetary tones. The Gongs of our Solar System recording represents the spectrum of resonance of celestial harmonies. Eleven (Paiste made) gongs tuned to the planets of our solar system; Sun, Mercury, Venus, Moon, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. This is possible due to the work of Hans Cousto, the scientist who calculated the vibrational frequency of each planet and applied the octave principle to these frequencies so that each planet can be heard as a tone.
The ancients recognized the relationships of the planets to the human being. Each of us is a microcosm of the macrocosm. The Gongs of our Solar System resonate chakras, meridians and organs. Each benefits psychological, physiological and spiritual conditions. For example, Venus has to do with creating compassionate mind, loving kindness and inspiration. It affects the Ajna or 3rd eye chakra. Physiologically, it corresponds to the cavernous plexus, brain, triple heater, pituitary gland and the gall bladder. Now, you can decide what to develop or transmute. This profound music stands by itself, or as a support to other healing modalities. This music (as well as gongs, his full complement of recordings and publications) is made available by contacting Mysterious Tremendum.

GONG MUSIC EDUCATION
DEVELOPING SYNTONIC CONSCIOUSNESS
You constantly re-develop your power to
synthesize diversity into a “working together” of
dynamic functional harmony.
The ability to synthesis is the greatest mental
power we humans can develop under the force of
Merging together two or more dissimilar systems
through the heat of thought, akin to how the
worlds most powerful resonance releaser, the
universal gong is made, smelted into our most
remarkable musical alloy of Copper, Tin, & Nickel
known as Bronze.
The result of this synthesis is called…. Holistic,
Holism or Holo-ism, All meaning…. the Whole is
very much Greater than the Sum of its Parts, yet
the whole is in each of its parts.
Your part may not make the whole much more
powerful yet the whole will make your part much
Finding the whole in the part is easier than finding
the part in the whole.
THE TONE WHEEL OF LIFE
Spin or Rotational Power is the Primal Creative
Force in the Universe.
One complete cycle is a single frequency whether
ultra fast cycles at the micro level or vast orbits at
macrocosmic levels where one frequency could
be our own sun’s galactic orbital cycle of many
light years duration.
Heard and Unheard Sound both are a vibration or
an oscillation, an orbit and/or rotation. All are one
and the same with different names.
The circle (and ellipse) is the universal symbol for
these whether tone or orbit.
Inherent within the circle is an underlying
blueprint; geometry of life in crystal templates of
diverse flower mandalas.
When looking at the mandala of a flower form we
see the mathematical beauty of the universe
going through life processes captured within the
recurring cycles of time.
The composite of simultaneous energies flow
both clockwise, and counter-clockwise; it will
have both centrifugal and centripetal spin, going
both in and out between the center and the
An advanced usage of the power of synthesis is
to amalgamate diverse systems of divination into
a gonglike archetype of wholeness.
All harmonic systems exist in simultaneous and
parallel worlds that allow each singular system to
function with least obstruction/friction/resistance
according to its design science.
All stones when placed in a geometric pattern
around a circle perform as cosmic antennas
pulling energies inward from the living cosmos,
which in turn sends energies through their
metallic crystal mass toward the core of
Mother Earth’s Heart.
Our Planet Earth is said to also act as the Heart of
our Greater Solar System. Stone circles were the
elegant pre-historic way to tune into the cycles of
nature and the 8 various directions on Earth.
Musically, every circle represents holistically, an
octave as well as a frequency of tone.
In other words the tonic or fundamental tone of
DO reappears as DO1, 13th Tone of a 12 half
step/tone octave, or as DO1, 8th tone of a 7 full
tone/step octave. Each DO or tone is holistic
when it sounds both at its low fundamental or
tonic and at its first natural overtone formant of
A Holistic Living Octave consists of either 8 or
13 notes. This Holism of Sound when composed
of living tones is musically organic for its tones
live, suspend in time, regenerate, reproduce and
naturally fade away, diminishing into unheard
When the tone is suspended from the natural
overtones, as with a stringed instrument, the
combination tone resonances of a reverberating
gong, the DO and DO1 find a mating place by
sharing equal volume or tone pressure.
Yang DO and Yin DO1, its first overtone, produce
a Resultant Tone, which becomes the tone “child”
and the sum of the frequencies of DO and DO1.
This Child of the DO + DO1 tone is a chord, known
as Perfect Fifth, 1.5 ratios. It is also a Perfect
If the chordal tone is not given more energy, it
Will soon fade away becoming less and less each
time as it rises in frequency until all its force,
exhausted by friction disappears from our hearing
It leaves the audible world going from Perfect
Fifth to Perfect Fourth to Major Third, Minor Third,
Major Second, Minor Second and so on.
The pull toward non-existence is balanced in life
by the regenerative power of holistic resonance
with tones that are filling space rather than
The pull upward inevitably wins out, as Death
more than likely will remain unavoidable in our
present human development.
Sonic pressure waves radiate everywhere
outward and act as an expansive force that
counteracts the centripetal force of gravity,
pulling us into smaller and smaller increments.
The Centrifugal force of space filling tones acts as
an anti-gravity force. Together this double spiral
represents a Scalar Wave with both descending
and ascending spirals.
A tone’s life diminishes like a flame that burns out
to inevitably lose its 3rd and 4th dimensional life in
matter, all because of heat through friction with
matter as the tone ascends along the natural
However, as long as the tonic or fundamental tone
is re-nourished with constant tone regeneration,
the generations of resultant tone “children” will
be born like rabbits according to the PHI
1.618033989 Fibonacci Series that governs
cellular reproduction, but in microseconds.
These countless tone progeny make up the
spontaneous inner reproductive life of holistic
resonances within one great tone of multi-unity.
A living blanket of sound, an oceanic sound with
no spaces between its tones creates abundance
of resultant tones and only their presence can be
Living tones are what we feel and not just hear;
we take them into our heart within the mind and
into our mind within the heart.
Since our mind feels more than thinks under the
influence of gong tones we immediately enter a
dreamlike state. This sensitive space of the Gong
Field is constructed mysteriously by the seamless
tones of a 1.618 Minor Sixth Ratio.
As long as this great tone of mult-unity is
sustained we are in a gong state of mind. We are
immersed in a sonic space of greatest beauty,
balance, and strength; synthesized together like a
great cosmic AUM – OM, the roar of cosmic life.
At this point, here is no empty space of silence
between consecutive organic tones, there is an
Akashic Bridge manifested, a silent voice, and it
connects inter-dimensionally separate and
When this music becomes totally saturated with
an infusion of overtonal plasma that has force; it
feels levitating and seems anti-gravitational. This
is because the elevating golden spiral follows the
perfect ratio of 1.618, the line of least friction with
no loss of information between dimensions.
After the Perfect Fifth Resultant Tone, the
influence of the Major Sixth directs the flow
toward infinity to the next level of the spiral
emanating from the primal torus.
After the Major Sixth resultant tone there is an
inner space-filling of an endless series of closer
to Perfect PHI Minor Sixth Chord relationships.
This is the Merkaba or Soul Body of the Great
Tone of Life; it is what beams you up.
The Minor Sixth Spiral creates space in both
worlds because it springs from the primal dark
waters of the grand chaos of pre-matter.
When we are engulfed in this 4th Dimensional
World of the Creative Intelligence, the Cosmic
Kundalini, we are free of the 3rd Dimensional home
of the separate senses.
In this non-dimension of timelessness, where all
dimensions exist simultaneously in parallel
Worlds, is a world where only the intention of
attention is needed.
This is a world where a more powerful Spiritual
Will is transmuted from Ego Willfulness. This is a
world where meditative contemplation rather
than meditative concentration is favored.
The linear mind is overcome by a non-linear mind
of synthesis, which in music is called The Music
of Syntonics, according to the late esoteric
master of music, Dane Rudhyar.
This world is the Sacred Space of Holo-ism. It is
both Holophonic and Holographic, wave and
particle, a world of quantum fluctuations.
It is our Merkaba (or Swan) Body soul tone that
takes us to and from more refined 5th and 6th
dimension worlds of pure resonance, of greater
free and preconscious creativity, dimensions of
fully potent syntonic functional harmony.
Upon going through the synaesthetic mixing of
the senses in the altered state of gong
consciousness, our Left Brain linear mental knots
are de-materialized and exorcised, then, recycled
into the Akasha.
Then they are released back into the primal chaos
of the deep gong waters of Spirit and dissolved in
the great OM. After a de-knotting within gong tone
immersion, new opportunities replace the
negative stasis, rendering it obsolete.
SCIENCE OF SAMADHI
LESSONS IN GONG CONSCIOUSNESS
For the students of the Way of the Gong, the more
we as gong masters know about the myths,
history, and also the future predictions regarding
the gong, the better.
The more we keep track of the latest research in
mind science, the better.
The more we give important meaning to our own
gong research, the better.
The more we understand our own physical gong
body, the better.
The more we are able analogically to correlate
correspondances, the better.
Use The Chi-ometer. It was created to be a
practical tool for the gong master’s analogical
mind to read correspondences between diverse
calendars, systems of divination and geometry;
and the flow of yearly and daily Chi.
Our held in common analogical mind neuron
circuitry is responsible for our ability to synthesis
non-similarities and create the functional

Understanding the various systems within the
Chiometer’s wheels within wheels within wheels
results in contemplation on an abstract level of

linear polarization, memory circuits.
These old neural circuits resistant to change
begin to morph into a new perspective.
The tension is always between polarity

between the rational polarizing and the inclusive

When we say Gong Therapy is based on the
Spiritualization of Matter this includes the lifting
of the Human Spirit through a sonic dip into a
Gong Bath of Cosmic Sound.
The Gong Experience is simultaneously a Surfing
on the 4th dimensional waves of an ocean of
sound and being blown like a kite by ever shifting
winds of the imagination.

This omnipotent Gong sound is likened to the first
word from the mythical mouth of god. The gong’s
loving roar as it voices its universal OM tone does
more than just make us humans feel good in

Functional Harmony is the working together of
dissimilars/dissonances through synthesis. A

bias or frequency is in the octave of human life.
What is more deciding is the equalization of

This “Syntonic” neutral area of the mind within
the brain is the resetting space for higher
conscious neural programming.
It might be more correct to say that tone
synthesis is working with the sacred geometry of
tone and the parceling of the sound space.
It is psychic matter in the mind that is being
spiritualized or refueled with fullness
His psychic substance exists as the self-
consciousness or the awareness of being aware.
The yogis call this mental stuff ‘Chitta’.
The thoughts sounded in our reflective mind of
mirror neurons exist as bubbles within this sea of
the brain’s consciousness.
“Just as we think so we are!”.
Feeling good about something is a force similar to
the attraction of magnetism and gravity, pulling
us into a center of balance. Even within these
forces is another force, the Phi force of least
resistance, which is not limited to the bi-polar
laws of attraction and repulsion.
Phi could well be the Universe's force of un-
conditional love because for all we know every
thing dances to its tune.
Being un-conditional means we are in this world
but not of it. The love of a conditioned world
follows a mathematical model that is itself limited
by forces within the world.
The golden spiral of universal Phi, the golden
ratio of the Fibonacci Series, 1.618033989…..when
it is materialized or incarnated, can only become
matter through the attraction of a descending
harmony from Phi 1.618, Major Sixth 1.666,
Perfect Fifth 1.5, the octave 2.0 one in unison 1.
Otherwise the invisible force of Golden Phi
1.618033989.... would not touch down in matter.

tone slowly dissolve into heat and the heat
disappears into the Akasha or 'creative vacuum'

the Akashic field.
When the amplitude of separate thoughts touch
