does "Positive Music" Mean?
was first coined by Don Robertson
in 1967 after
realizing that music has an inherent positive or negative
vibration that can resonate with a comparable emotional effect
in people, plants, and animals. This realization was further
strengthened by his discovery in 1968 of a four-note chord
that he considers to be the base chord of discordant harmony.
Calling this chord the duochord, he published his findings in
1970. In 1969, Don Robertson created an album for Mercury
Records' Limelight label. Called Dawn, this
in 2003 on the Italian Akarma label--demonstrated in music Don
Robertson's discovery of the positive and negative aspects of
music and the use of positive harmony as well as the duochord.
uses the term positive music
not to describe the
quality of words that are used in a song, but to define the
very essence of music itself, be it vocal or instrumental. DoveSong.com
believes that there is a very definite
effect that music produces and that this effect can be a
positive one, a negative one, or one that is neutral. We
believe that it is important to get this information to the
world for three reasons:
1) There was a
very definite influx of negative music during the last century
and this music has become accepted, but not understood by society.
2) Music that has a
positive vibration or quality can be emotionally and
spiritually stabilizing, uplifting, inspiring, and in many
other ways beneficial.
3) Much of the great
positive music of the past, both from this culture and from
past cultures, has been forgotten in today's world.
