Personal Life and Hobbies of Brian T Collins
Greetings dear visitor, As my contribution to humankind, I define my purpose as an innovator, musician/composer, coach/consultant, stone artist and explorer of consciousness. I share my life experience and talents to help inspire others to new states of realization, confidence and active motivation. I help clients quickly and effectively through their challenges so they get the outcome they desire.
I would like to share some of my personal life story to give you a brief background about my reasons for.
I was born in Glasgow, Scotland at the Southern General Teaching Hospital. I was delivered in a medical theatre to an audience of medical students who were studying at the hospital. I grew up in a landscape rich with ancient history. As a boy I used to play in an abandoned castle in DUNURE. I was blessed with traveling at a young age to Europe every summer, where my family would visit many special places and HISTORICAL SITES in France and Spain.
My love of innovation and music was inspired by my father, who was a lover of jazz music and an engineer at JOHN BROWN marine engineering and shipbuilding firm. My father had one of the rarest collection of vintage jazz recordings in Scotland. I used to lay under the kitchenette table, drawn in by the sound of the bass and drums of the old 78 rpm records.
At approximately around age 5, I received a head impact injury from being struck by a car on my street. This was the first of a series of near death incidents in my life. After the injury, I suffered post ear infections, hypersensitivity, and I was sensitive to sound and frequency. I acquired a natural ability to play several musical instruments, all self taught. My feeling brain quickly surpassed my thinking brain from trauma, so I was able to sense the environment differently from an early age, and had trouble adjusting to the curriculums of school.
At age nine I experienced a UFO sighting with my brother and it fired a life long interest of science fiction and love of space art.
My family moved to Canada in 1980 where I was bought a bass guitar for my birthday. I quickly took to the instrument and I was attracted to the low end of the Bass. It seemed to calm me. As a child in Glasgow I was drawn to the Drums and Bass of the jazz records my father used to play. Naturally I was drawn to bass. My friend at the time used to lower the pitch on recordings to learn RUSH tunes, and I remember being attracted to the lower pitch of the songs slightly tuned down.
On a bicycle tour in Scotland in 1987, I had an awakened state of realization when I was sitting on a stone apex on a hill just outside the Scottish town of LOCHINVER. I experienced a standing wave phenomenon that caused a life long fascination with frequency and ancient standing stones.
I was compelled to privately study sound at ancient sites. I studied the effects of frequency on water systems, I studied cultural shamanic practices of sound healing and also investigated the alternative pseudo realm of metaphysics, esoteric symbology, paranormal & psychic phenomenon.
As loves of interest, I am an avid dowser, skywatcher, musician and stone artist. I create small to medium sized SACRED STONE CIRCLES and stone sculptures similar to ancient standing stone circles in Britain and Europe.
An innovative personal hobby of mine is to raise awareness of enshrining a separate preservation tuning pitch standard between A=427Hz – A=438Hz. This preservation range is lower than the normal entertainment de facto music pitch standard A=440Hz. One particular frequency I studied was 432Hz. Please understand this is just one of my favourite frequencies.
For many years I have endorsed A=432Hz as a fundamental coherent, concordant pitch for increased efficacy in sound and music therapy.
I support low frequency sound & music pitch as an effective method for helping calm the nervous system and impact of stressors on the BODY AND EMOTIONAL STATES OF MIND. It’s been effective in my private studies and research in testing the efficacy of a sound based non-therapy approach to coaching. Music has the ability to affect emotions, and there are plenty of third party studies to back that statement. Please also visit the Research links tab on this website.
432Hz was studied to as a coherent life sustaining frequency according to RESEARCH ON COHERENT & INCOHERENT FREQUENCIES.
My endorsement of 432Hz as a preservation pitch is supported by third party credible RESEARCH ON THE SPIRAL SHAPE OF THE EAR suggests that low frequency sound translates in the spiral canal of the ear into higher sensitivity nerve signals. This suggests that low pitch is a more effective delivery method of sound vibration into the nervous system than higher pitched entertainment tunings.
Simple reason, intuition and logic dictates that having a separate preservation pitch standard for music performance used in non-therapy stress management coaching, meditation music, or licensed sound healing and music therapy, would serve to minimize the disruptive impact on the current entertainment based music industry. The music industry is a multi billion dollar economy and multiple supply chains rely on many established niche markets across many sectors and vertical markets.
It seems practical to have a separate preservation standard of tuning different than industry standards as a beneficial benchmark, both maintaining industry standards whilst also innovating the economy of arts and entertainment with new market niche content.
My ethical, moral and peaceful strategy of a separate preservation pitch offers minimal disruption on existing markets and labels, whilst enshrining the efficacy for independent artists and niche markets that rely on online fan based sales and crowd funding platforms to make a living. A civilization that destroys the human creative force of imagination through its need to play and create, is surely doomed to collapse when it neglects its arts and culture.
It enshrines a persons human universal legal rights under Article 7 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS to enjoy music in alternate pitches other than the entertainment industry standards, free from discrimination, censorship, shadow banning or disparagement!
A separate lower frequency pitch standard would also serve effective long term strategy to preserve old delicate organic glued historical instruments that are under danger of warping due to the higher pressure tension that higher brighter pitched commercial entertainment tunings demand.
For increased efficacy of coaching and sound/music therapy application, I suppose low frequency sound & music pitch could be an effective method for helping to calm the nervous system and impact of stressors on the BODY AND EMOTIONAL STATES OF MIND.
For these reasons, I support frequencies under a new preservation range of 427Hz – 438Hz. I personally choose A4=432Hz as my personal preservation choice of standard for coaching and making ambient or transformational music to help others on their journey of self help.
I currently live on Vancouver BC, and I help people and animals with stress management coaching using a custom built harmonic sound instrument. I also write music for clients, entrepreneurs, marketers, production houses and sync licensing.
Thanks for visiting and if you would like to know more about how I help others with sound and coaching, please reach out on this site. 🙂
