After meeting these researchers and summarising
their findings , Jacotte CHOLLET questions the role
of the human psyche, "consciousness ", emotions
& the Body / Mind connection.
Up until that moment she was mainly focused on the
sense of Vision, she now realizes that another sense
"HEARING" triggered by the VIBRATION OF SOUND WAVES
activates a more global mode of brain functioning.
she directs towards a new experimental path the
study of the VIBRATORY EFFECTS OF SOUND on the human
Using "sound synthesizers"
new instruments allowing an unlimited exploration
of sound frequencies, she obeys an inner voice
urging her to explore the action of sound vibrations
induced out of "expanded" states of consciousness
with psyche and soma .
She creates a spontaneous music composed out
of a state of expanded awareness .
VOISIN, her long time companion and husband dies.
She produces her 1st
CD of Multidimensional music : " INVISIBLE
PRESENCE" and creates
her own Producing company : MMD Productions.
1992: She then
co creates with a biological researcher L Ries,
the "Institute for Development and Expansion
of Consciousness" which organises workshops
based on "resonance" with "Multidimensional music"
and collects data from "experiencers" .
A series of biological analysis
show the deep influence of MMD music not only on
consciousness states but also on physiological correlates.
shows that MMD music increases the amount of oxygenation
in the blood, stimulates the immune system, acts
as an "orderly" or "negentropic" provider at the
same time it allows connection with the deepest
layers of the psyche and causes resurgence of unconscious
repressed stuff …
