The sky is full of pink today! Of course, we do not mean this literally, but in a figurative sense, because Kia is offering an instrument that only knows the colour pink. Namely, their new instrument “move.ment” produces pink noise in a very innovative way. By means of carefully recorded nature’s sounds, this instrument increases the alpha waves in the brain which is supposed to be beneficial to our state of consciousness, and all this will cost you absolutely nothing because move.ment is and shall be completely free to use!
By means of various libraries with recorded sounds from nature, move.ment can use the pink noise generated to increase your creativity by affecting your consciousness directly. And no, this is not some wicked voodoo but a proven fact about the functionality of our brain which can be positively influenced by means of pink noise. Brain alpha-waves become harmonically aligned which increases creativity when using pink noise, and Kia have found that by following these four general guidelines, the flow-state of consciousness can be further increased:
- use a BPM of 120 to synchronize the heartbeat to elicit positive vibe and focus; increasing the bpm increases the intensity of focus.
- use harmonic progressions, as they are better remembered by the listener, activating certain areas of the brain.
- use melodic intervals to generate movement, creating a sense of anticipation and longing central to inspiration.
- use unique textures by layering pink noise sounds of movement in nature.
These four guidelines will set the noise in such a way that your brain waves fall in line with what the heart subtly craves. With this, we would like to add an important piece of information regarding this though. Because in their exclusive focus on the brain, a fifth element is left out by the developer, an element equally important in achieving this increased state of creativity, namely the ‘heart’.
The heart and its intuitive senses must be receptive and in harmony with what the brain sets out to do because without it creativity cannot manifest. In most musically-inductive cases, the heart actually ‘is’ harmonized with the brain’s focus, but it works on a subtle subconscious level that is usually not consciously recognized and realized; however, the heart is an essential part of the equation that we feel must at least be mentioned so that you gain even further insight into the ‘voodoo’ functionality of this wicked instrument.
With this instrument, both brain and heart will benefit in ways other plugins rarely do. We leave you with the suggestion to give it a spin and elevate your brain ánd heart to higher levels of creative focus! Just download the instrument and the recorded sounds in nature in the link provided. Then use the guidelines to layer and set the noise as desired to create truly special music.
Move.ment will make your heart sing, and the brain will be inspired by it!
