about the Classic Composer & Musicologist PETER HÜBNER
and his music creations and musicological works
Dr. James Lynch
“During the past two decades, Peter Huebner’s ‘Medical Resonance Therapy Music’ has been demonstrated effective in helping to alleviate pain, insomnia, anxiety, headaches, and other stress-related complaints in a variety of hospital and out-patient settings.
This remarkable German musicologist and classical composer developed a sophisticated, computerised, digital music laboratory to create compositions based on Pythagorean precepts.
Although he is best remembered as a mathematician, Pythagorus was also an accomplished physician, astronomer, and musician. He taught that each of these disciplines, as well as all of nature, were governed by laws of harmonious proportion that were interrelated in some concordant fashion. He coined the term ‘cosmos’ to describe this orderly and harmonious universe, where everything could be reduced to mathematical principles.
In Pythagoras’ day, both music and medicine were considered to be branches of mathematics, as well as an art or science, and pleasing music or good health required maintaining harmonious relationships. Since everything in the cosmos was interrelated, knowledge gained from a greater understanding of mathematical principles in the microcosm of music could be utilised to restore disruptions in balance and harmony that were responsible for different diseases.
In the most general sense, our approach to the treatment of heart patients encompasses a similar view, one in which we attempt to bring patients back to what I believe is a biological state of ‘harmony’ with the rest of their living world.”
