What does "Positive Music" Mean?

The term positive music 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 album--re-released 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.

DoveSong 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.
