A seemingly contradictory statement
that may nonetheless be true.
Dryn Celli Ddu is a restored bronze age passage 'burial' chamber,
restoration not in its original condition, it is a very unusual monument
as it is surrounded by a ditch and stone circle.
The chamber is now covered in earth and grass to help preserve it and
has modern concrete beams inside to help support the roof, the lining
stones and the inner chamber are of the original stone. A most unusual
aspect of this chamber is a standing stone or monolith in the small round
main chamber, the stone about 6ft 8ins tall above ground appears to be
a fossilised tree trunk and is the focus of the chamber.
There is also another standing stone outside the rear opening of the chamber,
the rear opening at about head height is not big enough to enter or exit
and lets in light.
Personally I am glad of its present condition as many are in far worse
My belief is this type of structure was not a burial place, more likely
a place where the deceased would be brought and where there spirit or
soul would calmly transcend to the next existence, it would have been
held with respect.
I also believe sounding/humming/chanting would have been part of ceremonial
procedure due the reflective property's of the stone construction.
I recently finished a prototype
of a machine - The Harmoniser
The Harmoniser is a three channel sound generator with four range settings
and adjustable frequency adjustment for individual channels.
Each channel also drives a group of red, green or blue LEDs to create
a light effect in optical harmony with the sound.
After a brief familiarisation anyone can adjust the settings to create
a sound they 'like'.
I had previously contacted
several friends with an idea to use the Harmoniser in Bryn Celli Ddu as
A group gathered on Anglesey and consisted of Migs, Alan and Linda, Adrian
and Jenny, Alan Y, and me.
We made our way walking up
to the chamber, as some of those gathered had not previously visited the
chamber I left them to have a little time before I started using the Harmoniser.
I gave a brief description of the technology and its relative ease of
use, we decided three people should start by jointly holding the main
pillar stone as this is the main focus of the chamber, Linda using dowsing
rods asked who should start, the first three were Migs, Linda and me.
I used to avoid joining spiritual events mainly to take the role of observer
and recorder but this event is different, I built the Harmoniser as a
combined electronic, spiritual, audio, optical device, it is part of me
- I have put much research and thought into it, it is part of my philosophy,
so I took part in the meditation/interaction.
I instructed Jenny how to adjust the three frequencies and after a while
she got us to mixing the three frequencies and how they interact to create
For those taking part we are in the hands of the operator but we can instruct
the operator about when they find 'good sounds/vibrations' or to make
Migs was mostly quiet through out but later she told me she was experiencing
visualizations, Linda often commented when a 'good' frequency was found
and how she was perceiving the vibration/sounds - within her chakras.
Through-out the various mixing of the three frequencies, at times the
sound is almost monotone which some people enjoy and relate to this can
also have an energy boosting property.
Other settings and mixing of the frequencies produce a 'tritone' sound
- harmonics of the three tones that can sometimes resonate or vibrate.
I believe this is from combination
of the electronic mixing and possibly a combined reaction from the red,
green and blue LEDs that are also illuminated individually
via one of the frequency generators.
As the three
of us were standing holding the monolith we all felt grounded to the earth
and connected to the stone, during this time listening to the low frequency
sound it felt I was repeating something that would have been done in the
bronze age - a clearing/cleansing (of myself and the chamber) and connecting
to the earth.
The connection felt circular from the stone through hands into body, through
feet into the earth and from the earth into the stone.
Perhaps the process was energized by the changing low frequency sounds
that resembled the 'Omm' hum heard in a Tibetan monastery as part of a
meditation chant or from the sounding of several very large horns sometimes
associated with Buddhist monks.
The 'event' felt of a connection
of past, present and future - the bronze past of which we all have ancestors
who were of that time and the effort we in our present time hade made
to be part of that night we wanted, with great respect to be there, and
the new technology that I had made the effort through my knowledge and
quest for this spiritual 'thing', to create 'spiritual?' technology.
Several of those gathered had little knowledge of the Harmoniser and its
potential, but in this special place it was not out of place indeed felt
'right' bringing something back, possibly not heard in the chamber for
I think we all felt and got
some thing different from the event, probably what we needed, but we all
felt connected to the chamber, the stone and the earth. We were not induce
into a trance, we could hear Adrian talking outside the chamber, it did
not bother us or change our experience, we were aware of our surroundings
and very aware of the sounds.
At times I could feel the stone slowly shake, at times hands tingled,
most of the time I felt a circular connection/flow of energy - hands-stone-earth-feet-body-
hands, but not flowing or moving but a part of a circle. - connected.
As the second group took over
the stone holding, Migs adjusted the Harmoniser, still getting good vibes.
During this time I turned on the Quantum EVP sound to light system for
an experiment, although it ran for some time without response, in thought
I could briefly hear a high hitch singing or humming, at the time I dismissed
it, when driving home discussing the evening with Migs she said she also
heard the same sound, I will take more notice of this next time.
It was noticed
that as the low frequency sounds reverberated around the chamber the stone
lining could be felt vibrating, this was also noticed when standing on
the top of the chamber. (this was not a destructive force) adding to the
theory that for bronze age man the chamber was designed with sound in
mind, just as humming, chanting, toning was part of a ritual used here.
The chamber added something to the sound, more than when listening through
headphones, the sound surrounded us, we could feel it all around.
Perhaps just as to day various sound can be felt to be beneficial or have
healing quality ancient man also recognized this, the experiment we conducted
in the chamber was not just for fun, the Harmoniser did evoke certain
feelings, not a trance - a good feelings, the earthy low tones reminiscent
of a didgeridoo evoke a calming, grounding peaceful feeling that allowed
me to feel (at least imagine if nothing else) what bronze age man would

A return visit is planned very
soon, when I will take and monitor further electronic, magnetic and EVP
following recordings were made on the second visit the chamber
