History and Vision of Project
This project has been in production since 2005. Since then over 2 dozen more interviews have been gathered from leaders in the field. The onsite production during The Sound Healing Conference of 2007 in Santa Fe, New Mexico was a dramatic step in turning the project from vision to reality where many connections and interviews were made. Producers Dean and Dudley have also made specific trips to visit many of the interviewees in their homes as well as catching them on the road, traveling to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Boulder, Denver, New York, among other places.

Due to the large of amount of information and nature of the project, much time has been taken to absorb the content of the interviews and formulate a compelling treatment. The current status of the project is in making thematic shorts for distribution via the web via podcasts. We are also in the process of developing graphic content to illustrate many of the principles with the eventual goal of releasing a more comprehensive DVD, and potentially a DVD series.
A DVD & Multi-Media Project
Produced by: Dean & Dudley Evenson
(Soundings of the Planet co-founders)
As musicians and multi-media artists, we have been exploring the emerging field of sound medicine since 1979 when we founded our company, Soundings of the Planet. Over the years, we have researched and discovered many principles reflecting the relationship between music, sound, vibration and healing. Along the way, we have met other sound healing professionals, musicians, authors, and researchers in the field.
In addition to our musical background, we have been producing video since 1970 and are currently working on a comprehensive video survey covering state of the art information about the exciting field of sound healing and vibrational medicine.
We have already interviewed over two dozen sound healers and authorities in the field and are scheduling interviews with many more. We are also in the process of developing graphic content to illustrate many of the principles.
We intend to create a DVD or DVD series from the interviews. We know the content of this project will have a large audience as people are especially interested in seeing and hearing the music researchers and authors as they explain and demonstrate the subject from their perspective. The content will also be available for transmission via broadcast and cable television, web casting, pod casting, radio and other media forms.
If you would like to learn more about this project or about becoming involved as a co-sponsor please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
