The human brain consists of billions of nerve cells. Among themselves and through the central nervous system of the body they exchange tiny electrochemical impulses. They exchange them, they store them, receive and send these impulses. These electrochemical discharges creates an electric signal with a frequency between 1 and 30 Hz (vibrations per second). The totality of these signals creates the so-called brainwaves that can be measured with an electroencephalogram, EEG.

Brainwaves can be divided up into groups according to their frequencies in the following manner:

Delta waves, 0 to 4 Hz take place chiefly in dreamless deep sleep;

Theta waves, 4 to 8 Hz are characteristic of certain sleep phases and deep meditation. It is not at all uncommon that in the theta state of consciousness you will find increased creativity, unusual problem-solving capability, receptivity to hidden psychological structures and the turning off thought activities;

Alpha waves, 8 to 13 Hz . These take place in a relaxed however wakened state. It is a pleasant relaxation without sleepiness. They also come forth with closing of the eyes;

Beta waves, 13 to 30 Hz, are characteristic for the normal waking state of consciousness with a concentration focused toward the outward world. In this state, logical, analytical, thinking is possible.

Just as music can influence moods, certain sound waves that are combined in the proper manner can bring the brain into a specific level of consciousness. The patterns of sounds on these CD stimulate the brain, the result is a changed state of consciousness. Also the music that is over the pattern of the sounds is developed in such a way that the entire brain enters a balanced state so that the right and the left brain spheres are integrated.

AudioStrobe® System has been developed to implement these awareness techniques in a more controlled and risk-free manner.

The synesthetic aspect of the psychedelic experience is the key to this novelty. Synesthetic means nothing else than the linking of different emotions, the stimulation of sense organs combined with the simultaneous stimulus of another sense, e. g. perception of colors while listening, perception of sounds while watching. This terms comes from the Greek and means "perceiving simultaneously".

The developers have used the concept of the visual-acoustic stimulation known from the "Mind Machines". They soon found these stimuli to be too monotonous and boring, thus the idea was born to synchronize the music with visual impulses and to combine them on a high-quality sound medium such as the CD.

This triggered the development of the AudioStrobe System (flashes of sound) which not only stores music on an ordinary CD but also the corresponding optical signals. These signals are transferred to the light glasses using light emitting diodes via an AudioStrobe interface like the
The light signals can be modulated very subtly, reacting to the finest of nuances - all audio-visual art is created.
The effect is amazing! Before your inner eye unfolds a world of fantastic colors and figures moving in harmony with the changing melodies of the music which become almost physically tangible. A similar effect can be observed in the "Pictures within Pictures" in the book "The Magic Eye" where patterns printed on the page suddenly take on three-dimensional structures. We soon became aware of the fact that we had developed a new medium for a synesthetic experience of music.
Besides the various possibilities of application in entertainment, relaxation, superlearning and therapy supplements, this represents a new way for self-discovery. The abstract patterns or personal memories or visualizations are no more than a prelude, just like a constantly changing scenery behind a theater's curtain. You can reach out beyond these colored images to access the deeper layers of your perception. This is often accompanied by extraordinary experiences.
Is it a gateway to the unknown? We are convinced it is, but please go ahead and discover it yourself!

We hope you will enjoy it and discover a world of experience with the AudioStrobe system and its programs!
