Solfeggio Tones Harmonics

With rudimentary maths, one may calculate the harmonics of any fundamental frequency or derive a fundamental frequency for which a given frequency is a harmonic. ChatGPT comes in handy for this, and the link given here offers some insight into whether or not the Solfeggio Tones are in any way related to harmonics of tones that occur organically, such as the Schumann Resonance (7.8Hz – audible to humans at its fourth harmonic, around 31Hz or B0 on the piano keyboard) or tones one might hear in nature or music.

In short, only three of the nine Solfeggio Tones are related mathematically (harmonically) to what we might call “musical” tones that occur organically. The other six frequencies are, as ChatGPT points out, harmonics “of a more complex waveform with multiple frequencies” (this is explained in the last question in the chat).

Solfeggio Tones Notation

The Solfeggio Tones – Score (click the link to download) shows the Solfeggio Tones in relationship to A=440 tuning; for the A=432 relationship, subtract 8 Hz from the near-Solfeggio pitches shown while retaining the same musical notation. Remember: the Hz (frequencies) of the Solfeggio Tones themselves do not change! Also, for ease of use, the lowest frequency tone of F2 is transposed up one octave; that is, the tone 174Hz is one octave lower than the notated F3, or 348Hz.
