Music for Relaxation & Well Being

Produced by Elfenworks Productions, LLC on behalf of The Elfenworks Foundation

store-cd-rejuve

The first in our series of all-original music to comfort, inspire and encourage, this album features specially tuned pianos, violin and percussion, played in a soft and mellow style, creating a soothing and peaceful feeling. It is useful in guided meditations, spa relaxation, and simply drifting pleasantly for a time, away from the stresses of the day.

The CD was produced by Elfenworks Productions, LLC on behalf of The Elfenworks Foundation. The Elfenworks Foundation in turn worked in partnership with the Greater Bay Area Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) to bring Rejuve to those it might comfort or help in healing, whose lives have been affected by blood cancers. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education, and patient services. The Society’s mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. The Elfenworks Foundation also provided CDs of Rejuve in support of Package of Prevention, a nonprofit which advocates for cancer awareness.  Other partners are always welcome, simply contact The Elfenworks Foundation through their contact page.

The CD – available for  free download at BrotherCamillus.com – has a newer cousin, Rejuve II – see our Rejuve II Detail Page for details and learn about how this new album – like its predecessor – is helping health-related nonprofits.

Healing Music CD: Rejuve

Editor’s Picks: Media–Body & Soul Magazine, July 2007 “On the transporting CD Rejuve (February 2007), jazz pianist Tammy Hall breaks from the tradition of performing covers and plays mesmerizing songs she composed with the express intention of helping listeners recuperate from illness.”

Technical Details

The sessions were recorded using a combination of vintage tube analog microphones and state-of-the-art modern microphones. Two grand pianos were used, a 7′ concert grand which has a brighter sound, and a 9′ concert grand with a richer, more earthy sound. Both pianos were specially tuned by John Callahan of Callahan Piano in a variant of the historical well temperament rather than the equal temperament to which most pianos are customarily tuned.

Some notes from John Callahan, piano technician, about the tuning

Modern keyboard tuning has been in “equal temperament” for nearly the past 100 years. This means that each half step in an octave is spaced equally from the rest, a compromise which makes all of the intervals slightly out of tune, but allows for exactly the same sound in every key signature. Historical, or “well temperament” means that the half steps are not equally spaced—the result being that some key signatures have a more harmonious, in-tune sound, while others sound more dissonant. The pianos were tuned in an historical “well temperament” and Tammy Hall specifically composed and performed these melodies in the key signatures that can be perceived as more harmonious in this tuning. The effect is a calming, soothing musical experience.
