Step 27 – Heartbeat of the Universe


can you hear that? no, what is it?

that, my friend, is the Heartbeat of the Universe.

pulsing quietly, ever-present, in a dance of atoms and molecules

inside stars, inside the mind, inside the stomach of a tiger

the pulse and beat of the cosmic creator, the arch mathematician

a symphonic patterning, overlay of rhythms, disparate tones

all working for a higher unity

moving through the densities, ascending to ever higher scales

it is a tune playing today, in joy, in resonance

it is here, it is now

the Cosmic Pulse.


scored for strings, organ, and harp

    Not bad. Sounds a bit “Tweety” and somewhat muddied. I’m no musician so I can only relate my impression, rather than discuss in technical terms.

    I think it’s quite lovely. I am not mad about oboes when the notes are in the higher octaves, but I LOVE cellos.

    Some of my most favorite classical arrangements have been performed by a saxophone quartet. I think that some of these pieces you are composing would be simply magical if arranged for a sax quartet.

    Great blog. I put a link to 100musicalfootsteps at multiuniversus. We have a little bit of Bach there, trying to force the trashy ears of the ordinary world. Thanks for visiting us. Namasté.

    Please convert this piece into an orchestral masterpiece with real instruments. It’s too nice to leave it as a midi!
