 See excerpt below from:


. This book is based on my notes from a Sound and Vision project, called Matrix 5. It was inspired by Voices of Our Ancestors: Cherokee Teachings from the Wisdom Fire, a book written by fellow Eastern Tsalagi (Cherokee) Dhyani Ywahoo. I received a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, through support from the National Endowment for the Arts. My proposal addressed creative ways to blend art with science. 

I meditated and painted in a sound environment of pure sine tones. I had learned from Dhyani that our ancestors utilized the vibrations of five tones to address various illnesses, because each of our organ systems resonates with a particular tone. I entered the project using all my senses to analyze the effect the tones would have on me and the painted canvasses.
