In the 17th century Johannes Kepler calculated the intervals ( distance between tones) of the planetary cycles. For a long time it was undeterminate which basic tone was set to the intervals. Hans Cousto, a swiss mathematician had a brilliant idea in 1978 – the simple idea that the acoustic phenomenon of the octave can be appropriated beyond our sense of hearing ( to form an octave is to double a frequency or to halve it.) The mathematical formula to calculate any periodic occurrence with octave-analogue tones and rythms is described as follows: (1:a) x 2n = f a = periodical time in seconds n = number of octave f = frequency The formula of the octave makes it possible to hear occurrences, which reach beyond our sense perception when for example rotations of the planets or vibrations of molecules are being transposed into octave-analogue colors, tones and rhythms. The Akasha Project is using these 'real frequencies' to create affective fields of sound and musical structures with the aid of correctly tuned, electronic sound production and the use of rows of overtones devised from diatonic intervals. The Akasha Project Performance is apart from - its musical style - a ritual of frequency and synchronicity with modal, electronic overtone music.
