A growing number of people around the world are learning about the auspicious harmony of 432Hz, otherwise described as C=256hz. Thanks to films like “Sonic Geometry: The Language of Frequency and Form” and organizations like The Schiller Institute, the scientific pitch 432Hz A is steadily growing in popularity.
While the philosophy, mathematics and geometry around scientific pitch can seem complex, the simple pleasure of listening to 432Hz music provides us with a direct, felt sense of its potency. Though its only 8 hertz flat or -32 cents from the standard concert pitch, this shift in pitch has a major effect on the harmonic structure of music.
In the time of Beethoven, the renowned acoustician Ernst Chladni know for the Chladni cymatics plates, published a textbook on the theory of music which explicitly defined C=256 as the scientific tuning. Up through the middle of the present century, C=256 was widely recognized as the standard “scientific” or “physical” pitch. Before the international standard pitch was set at 440, many composers, musicians, and instrument makers used 432 as the scientific standard.
The reason for this was simple. Using mathematics, acousticians noticed that nature and the basic forms of geometry correspond with 432 cycles per second. The pentagon, for example, a shape that provides us with the PHI ratio, and represents the structure of man, gives us angles of 144, 108, 72 and 36 degrees. If you continue to double, following this pattern, you’ll reach 432 in the sequence. These angles align perfectly with not only the lower octaves of D and A in music, but they also correspond with the resonance of Venus which shifts 144° at each inferior conjunction of its orbital path. This example of scientific tuning is astonishing, but this is just one of countless other examples.
All of the fundamental geometries, the platonic solids from which all natural forms are made, the golden ratio and literally every aspect of the natural world are in resonance with the scientific pitch. In “brightening” the concert pitch to 440, we moved music away from an acoustic resonance with universal structures.
The standard 440 pitch has its own merits to be sure. “Brightening” allows for tonal clarity in large orchestral arrangements allowing individual elements to jump out of the mix. And, its been considered to provide a lighter and more elevated mood. But when it comes to sound healing and neuro-acoustic meditation programs we feel the scientific pitch is essential.
To align with the natural world and cultivate greater resonance with the cosmos, listening to music in A=432Hz is instrumental.

Pythagorean 432 Hz

A – Note 432 Hz Tuning / Factor-9 Musical Tuning: Note that all of the 60 individual musical notes in the 2nd octave 432 Hz A-note chart above are divisible by 9; and that the individual numbers / digits of each frequency when added together = 9. In other words in Pythagorean math 432 Hz A-note would be represented as 4 + 3 + 2 = 9. Remarkably this works on all notes in the chart (but 3 or 4 that could be typos). All are musically “in-tune” with the others. Remarkably, 9.6 Hz and / or it’s sub harmonics at 4.8 Hz, 2.4 Hz, 1.2 Hz (or to .6 Hz in just a small number of them) also divide equally into each of these 60 tones. Music tuned any other way, to say C-note 528 Hz or A-note 440 Hz causes this numerical synchronicity to fall apart miserably.

As you work through angles, 2-D geometric shapes, 3-D geometric shapes and finally sacred geometry you’ll begin to realize as we do that there is something magical happening here. Some astro-physical-biological law that’s being triggered and 432 Hz is part of it.
