Brain Wave Entrainment

During hypnosis the brain shows a characteristic sequence of brain wave activity. This can now be artificially reproduced through the use of audio tones; a process known as brain wave entrainment.

If you are in a particular state, for example, very anxious, then you will produce a unique 'signature' of brainwaves. This applies equally to other states, such as learning and the focused concentration of competitive sport.

These are states that can take a long time and a lot of physical effort to attain. It is an appealing idea that all that hard work and application could be bypassed and the perfect mental state produced through rapid artificial means.

This page is going to show you how this is done.

• Firstly, we are going to review the different types of brain wave and the states that are generally associated with them.
• Secondly, we will look at hypnosis and the brain wave signatures that have been observed in people while undergoing hypnosis.
• Thirdly we will look at psychoacoustics and brain wave entrainment and how it has been used to produce individual and groups of brain waves to modify peoples' state.
• Fourthly we will look at brain wave entrainment specifically with regard to inducing a hypnotic state.
• Finally there are some links to free and retail software suppliers so you can try it for yourself.

Types of Brain Waves

Brain Waves
Self awareness, higher levels of insight and information. Tibetan monks that walk barely clothed for days through the snow have exhibited high levels of these. They are difficult to measure and little is known about them. They are carried on the very slow moving Epsilon Waves (<0.5Hz).
Hyper Gamma
38 - 90Hz
Important in harmonizing and unifying thoughts processed in different parts of the brain. Combines different perceptions. Suppressed totally by anaesthetic. Found in all parts of the brain. Self awareness and insight.

The core frequency. Important in cognition, especially coordinating simultaneous processing in all parts of the brain. Deficiencies exhibit learning difficulties. Produced during hypnotic states.

12 - 38Hz
Wide awake, alert, focused, analyses and assimilates new information rapidly, complex mental processing, peak physical and mental performance, cannot be sustained indefinitely otherwise exhaustion, anxiety, and tension result.

Mid Range Beta Neuro-feedback training that produced alert behaviour, useful in depression cases.

12 - 15Hz
Low Beta Also known as Sensory Motor Rhythm (SMR) - vigilance, reduced mobility, shallow breathing, less blinking, fixed attention and eye focus, enhancing through neuro-feedback reduces epileptic symptoms and has a calming effect (ADHD sufferers).

Hyper-efficient in processing single tasks as it can focus on the details as well as the overall task at the same time

7.5 - 12Hz
Mental coordination and resourcefulness, relaxation, alert but not mentally processing anything, inward focus, calmness, at ease, deep breathing and closed eyes can amplify alpha production, peak around 10Hz.

Primary ionospheric resonance (Schumann) frequency. Stimulates retrieval of memories from the subconscious.

4 - 7.5Hz
Memory access, learning, deep meditation, sensations, emotions, the threshold of the subconscious, dreaming.

6.2 - 6.7Hz
Frontal Midline Theta - Cognitive activity, maths problems, sustained attention, extrovert personality, low anxiety

Shamanic trances, Tibetan mantras, Buddhist chants all use this frequency to access altered states
Object naming

Long term memory access

0.5 - 4Hz
Deep sleep, human growth hormone release, low blood pressure, low respiration, low body temperature. No muscle movement - Reticular Activating System (RAS) shuts this down.

The state Yogi's go into when they achieve "suspended animation" where no heart beat, respiration or pulse are noticeable.

Brain Waves During Hypnosis
It was thought that alpha wave patterns were characteristic of hypnotic states. It is now understood that it is theta and to some extent delta waves and 40Hz gamma waves that are predominant. Other wave patterns occur, even active beta waves, but these are due to the content of the suggestions and the images created by them.

The sequence seems to run something like this.

• As the you relax and then close your eyes there is a brief build up of alpha waves.
• As the induction (see about hypnosis) develops there is an increase in theta and to a lesser extent delta activity and the alpha activity drops away.
• This continues until the end of the hypnotic deepening.
• During the therapeutic suggestions the brain wave activity can vary depending upon the nature of these suggestions and the effect they are having. Generally during this period the delta and theta wave activity begins to slowly subside.
• Through the whole hypnotic process there is a gradual increase in 40Hz gamma wave activity.
• During termination the alpha activity and finally the normal beta activity returns.
This pattern is especially noticeable in highly hypnotisable subjects.
If you want to read more about this then the following article from the April 2004 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis presents some interesting research and a review of previous ideas. See the brain wave research article. 

Psychoacoustics - Binaural Tones
If slightly different audible tones are played to each ear through stereo headphones then as the brain puts these two sounds together it creates brain waves of a frequency equal to the difference of the two tones.

For example, if the left ear was played a 200Hz tone and the right ear a 210Hz tone the brain will respond with a 10Hz brain wave (termed a frequency following response).

If you want to know more about the theory and the research then see the article by Bill Harris at the Centerpointe Research Institute.

Brain Wave Training Hypnotic States
The significance of this is that with a careful choice of frequencies, you can rapidly alter your state.

For example, you can reproduce the patterns of brainwaves associated to falling asleep as the activity descends rapidly through alpha into theta and delta waves.

Many other states have been induced by the method such as learning, meditation and creativity. You can stack and overlap different binaural tones to produce quite complex states. Where somebody shows abnormal brainwave patterns, such as ADHD (Attention Deficit) or psychotic episodes, it is possible to train the brain back into a more normal pattern. The possibilities are enormous, and though research is still in its infancy, you can see how useful this could be both therapeutically and for self improvement.

In the case of hypnosis then you can produce a sequence of tones to mimic the normal course of a hypnotic session. For example:

• A period of alpha waves at the start behind the pre talk, at say 10Hz, a frequency known to stimulate serotonin and produce relaxation
• A gradual build up of theta which will remain the dominant wave pattern, at perhaps a frequency of 4.5Hz. This is the frequency used by Shamanic drummers to induce trance states.
• A gradual build up of delta waves
• Towards and during the reinforcement phase and termination introduce a 'learning' theta frequency at around 4Hz.
• You can try a short period of alpha during termination.
• If the final aim is to feel refreshed and revitalised then end with a beta wave wide awake frequency depending upon the nature of the therapy, for example around 13.8Hz (calming for ADHD) or 17Hz (alert for depression).

Coachella 2010 - Bending tones and twangy strange sounds penetrated through the sea of glossy eyed patrons.

Coachella !
I got to see - - John waters !! So dark, funny & dirty old man! LOL
BASSNECTAR SLAMMMMED out the original remixes and sick BASS..
FAITH NO MORE !! ROCKED - they opened with Reunited by peaches and herb.. and it was so so good! ! The Epic off (The Real Thing) Was so great live !! the synths sounded cool and jamming !!
Flowing strange plucking piano tones.. wild!
I walked a bit caught some MGMT they sounded cool..
Then walked to see .. Major Lazer .. It was all hype :(
Real lame.. no bass frequencies at all. all stage glamor and no punch.
Not impressive one bit.. :(
So i took a quick nap after eatting a coconut and got rest for
Shit this man can put on a show ! I have seen Primus 4 times in the 90's but this was a different show totally!
Live marimba / percussionist and cello player insane musicians ! !
Made the stage flow with tones and vivid sounds!!
and Les he was the man! thumping and slapping out some of the wildest bass lines . Mid show he grabbed his pig face mask and grabbed the up rite bass!! such a showman and a musical wizard!
Bending tones and twangy strange sounds penetrated through the sea of glossy eyes patrons.

I made it out of that tent just in time for the end of Z-trips set
just catching the most insane remix of the beatles taxman! with great visuals that were saying fuck the IRS and other amazing words of the anti establishment big brother nature! ! ! youtube it.. so great!

I cant really say much but WOW
I have been to shows but never have I seen so many people crammed into one tent at coachella. I made my way to the middle of the front stage and held my ground. I was in. Ready waiting. Then with a
burst of white light Dj Hi Tek walked out to his tower of a dj stand followed by Yo-Landi Vi$$er and then the Ninja!
all wearing the so famous now b/w hoodies.
They tore the roof off the place
One track they played was nothing but the loudest bass I have ever heard in my life throbbing with small drum hits clicking and Yo-landi hype on the Mic! My face felt like it was melting off... !!!

Dj Hi Tek - massive respect!

Then! the moment i was waiting for 10 + years..
Radio Soulwax -
2 Many Dj's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Stage was cleared of all the fancy towers and dj risers . .
A large black banner was raised covering the back screen
that had the Radio Soulwax transition tower on it!
A long basic table was brought out to the middle of the stage
One of the brothers from 2 many dj's came out
with some crazy radio with some glitch devices hooked up...
scanning the frequencies he would grab chunks and glitch them and stutter parts of the radio incoming frequencies.
he proceeded to step behind the table filled with amazing gear and it was on.......

the best remixing and mashing of songs I have ever witnessed.
I have been a fan of them from the age of 14/15 so this was amazing for me.

They played songs mashed songs together and the whole time
they were doing fun and unique video editing of the actual record covers of the songs they were mashing !!!

Time passes and friends do too.

"Its been a hard 2 years since my best friend died "R.I.P. - G.P.A."

He and I were like brothers.
A constant friendly rivalry with music was the drive
that fired our exploration into experimental electronics.

I remember downloading Circuit bending notes from Reed Ghazala
when we were young teens. ( just found the print up the other day!!! )
This only fueled the fire of passion for the experimental and strange.

As I launch my first web site / Get picked to play Coachella
I cant help but think about my friend and how we would push one another to excel, succeed.
We worked together many years creating songs and sounds on variety's of synthesizers and drum units. When I was 16 I got a job at a local music store. I remember how excited we both were to have a chance to play with whatever we wanted and to have a hefty discount on items!
I worked at that place for 5 years and acquired a massive collection of toys, So did my friend.
This was the dream of two young futurists. I remember his father one day came in the studio
stopped looked around at the overwhelming amount of synthesizers drum machines and other strange objects and said "Are you guys planing on launching a rocket?"

As I sit and look at my selection of keys, samplers and drum machines I can only think
I would give it all away to have my best friend back just for one day.

I sit and listen to new music and think G would have loved this.
So after 2 years the pain is still great and the loss is still fresh.
I hope i can live up to the standards we set for each other.
I miss the critique.
He was always pushing me to become better.

So here is the first step
Wish my friend could see this site, it would make him proud.

Create unique media and spread the wealth of creativity. > VIDEO < by - G.P.A.

They might not know so then go to the link.

I am lost in the sea of new devices and audio techniques i am running into
I have my MacBook filled to the gills with new apps. But i feel like I can not trust it.
My G.A.S. getting stronger. lol

Boutique pedals and analog tone generators flood my mind.
Triwave with a Panneur ... ummm textures.
Also the King Capitol Punishment Glamour Box . . hum need to reevaluate that one. The filter section was so flexible.
+ The constant though of just getting rid of everything I own and getting my dream Buchla 200e and moving to a cabin in the woods keeps coming to mind.

ALSO an amazing video from my friend Mike ! ! ! Enjoy!
