On the August 13, 2015 edition of "Nature Of Reality Radio" I welcome Alexandre Tannous who has been active as a musician, educator, composer, and as an ethnomusicologist. He holds a Bachelor of Music with a double major in Music Theory and Composition, and a Master of Arts degree in Music Education from Columbia University Teachers College. As a recipient of the Mellon Fellowship he also earned a Master of Arts and a Master of Philosophy degrees in Ethnomusicology from Columbia University where he was enrolled in the PH.D. program.

As a musician, he has performed a variety of musical styles including classical, jazz, rock, and non-Western music on the double bass, guitar, piano and percussion. Alexandre is also active as an ethnomusicologist. He has conducted fieldwork for 17 years in over 40 countries around the world. His ethnomusicological research investigates issues of acculturation, community, musical identity in an urban setting, and the concepts of talent, charisma, and leadership in music. He is a sought-after ethnomusicologist/composer consultant on projects in recording studios helping creating awareness in amalgamating various musical cultures.

For the past eight years he has been researching the therapeutic and esoteric properties of sound from Western scientific, Eastern philosophical, and shamanic societal beliefs perspectives. This has lead him to design a protocol of an integrated experience he calls “Sound Meditation” in which he raises an awareness to how a specifically designed sound can have the ability to help us to disconnect from habitual patterns, and guiding people in how to disconnect from the mind in this setting while listening to the specific traditional instruments he plays. He currently works as a sound therapist and teaches this practice.
