Social-Medical Significance of
Medical Resonance Therapy Music®
Dr. med. Dr. h. c. Boris Luban-Plozza
Music must align itself in harmony with the natural rhythms of our pulsating
individual, social and ecological life.
The harmony of our human biological system, which accords with the laws of harmony
of the microcosm of music, has been studied by the world renowned medical researcher
Prof. Dr. Gunther Hildebrandt, one of the founders of Chronomedicine and the
long-standing head of the Institute for Occupational Physiology and Rehabilitation
Research at the University of Marburg. Based on his research findings, he has
identified the human body as nothing short of a music physiology.
Today medical studies of this kind inspire the composer Peter Huebner to still
wider reaching artistic musical creations in his Medical Resonance Therapy Music®.
So, amongst well-known musicians, he is the one who produces musical creations
which integrate the laws of harmony of the microcosm of music in a tonal and
rhythmic way and in doing so, he runs counter to all other contemporary
This Medical Resonance Therapy Music gradually makes it possible for us noise-molested
people to get in touch again with the silence of our soul, our heart and our
free will, and to experience anew the harmonic, dynamic development of our inner
human energies. This takes place in a kind of laboratory of our free feelings
and desires, as if the dynamic silence of the evolution of our inner human energies
were the result of a scientific experiment, which occurs when listening to this
proto-natural music in a particular place and under particular conditions.
The effect that this music has comes close to the original significance of music:
there is the person with his attentiveness and with his inner vital reality;
he wishes that his thoughts and feelings, having been churned up during the
day, would turn themselves, deep within him, into harmonic creative energy
like a soothing echo.
With these Medical Resonance Therapy Music creations, one can free oneself from
the destructive din of machine-dominated everyday life and from the rhythmically
fixed music which is orientated on it and which so overpoweringly enshrouds
us wherever we are.
In the peace created by this health-orientated music, we can once again recognise
that we are alive and realise that our peace fills the richness of the newly
created musical sound-sphere as Peter Huebner calls it that world
of music deep in our thoughts, where we can find ourselves again.
music is to bring life to the peacefulness and invigorate our inner human
energies, then it must be naturally structured both tonally and
rhythmically! that is, free from all unnatural rhythmic fixation
absolutely independent of whether the music resounds loudly or
music is to bring life to the peacefulness and invigorate our inner human energies,
then it must be naturally structured both tonally and rhythmically!
that is, free from all unnatural rhythmic fixation absolutely independent
of whether the music resounds loudly or quietly.
It is true that excessively loud music kills our physiological hearing ability,
but unnaturally structured music even when played very quietly
kills our psychological hearing capability and, particularly through the fixed
rhythm method common in rock, pop and light-entertainment music, blunts both
our intellect and therefore our feelings which unfortunately then systematically
drives the youth of today into a process of brutalisation. The growing criminality
amongst young people is hardly surprising.
one of us still manages to be alone with himself in the reality of his natural
inner peace; for as soon as he reflects upon himself, his soul tries, as with
nightmares, to free itself from the murderous noise, to shake off
the stress again.
This noise molestation is a terrible thing. It has, at any rate,
been discussed and written about clearly enough. It is about time we were all
aware of it.
One thing is certainly true: for the individual, peacefulness remains a timeless
reality of great therapeutic value. Peacefulness is an important prerequisite
for those who, through music, wish to regenerate themselves in a nourishing
and satisfying way.
Now, we must not be fooled. Even light music, which its promoters
claim will generate relaxation, reflection and dreaming, but which at the same
time employs, albeit subtly, the rhythmically fixed structural laws of frigid
noise, is like a creeping poison, and no better than the blaring rock and pop
music which numbs in the style of the sledge-hammer method.

innovation has gained such a fast foothold and recognition among medical
experts as the utilisation of the natural laws of harmony.
one considers that the term Medical Resonance Therapy Music was only
coined 10 years ago, and then looks at the present level of documen-tation
on research and developments in this new branch of medicine, and the
statements of leading medical experts from many fields,
then it is also worth-while examining the causes for such enormous medical
success more closely.
