We were asked to provide a string section for a recent recording project, creating a music track to help patients with stress management needs. This was a collaboration with Dr Peter Gruenenwald, a London based GP and physician. Tuning the instruments to A = 332 Hz, a concert pitch that is known to have a harmonizing and therapeutic effect, the string quartet recorded a simple composition of just four tones and three intervals, designed to help with the pacing of breathing and activating a state of consciousness that would stabilise heart rate variability and so enhance physical and emotional health. The research study using the recording is on-going.
