Tahabdra’s blend of progressive bass music is rooted in a tuning system developed by drummer/electronic musician Josh Weinberg. The system is centered on 528Hz, the ancient solfeggio frequency, which has been proven by biochemists to resonate the water clusters that make up the backbone of the DNA double helix, and furthermore has the ability to repair broken DNA strands. This tuning system also incorporates the golden ratio, as recursive golden ratio point frequencies between octaves of 528Hz increase in accordance to the Fibonacci sequence as the octaves get higher, creating Fibonacci spiral scales of golden ratio frequencies between octaves of this DNA resonant freqeuncy. The goal of using this alternate tuning system is to produce electronic dance music that gets people dancing harder than anything else currently out there while healing on a physiological level and easing tension & suffering through the use of the numerical roots of the natural world. It is an exploration into the possibility that sound, and more so music, can repair and maybe even enhance people on a molecular/genetic level.
The tuning system takes life in the form of Tahabdra’s complex yet danceable rhythms, intricate sound design, & hard-hitting synths aided by the studio wizardry of Dominican born producer/DJ Wiggz Caro. The two musicians met while attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA from which both received degrees in Electronic Production & Design. The result of this collaboration is an enriching and uplifting experience both on and off the dance floor.
With years of national and international touring experience with other artists and projects under their belts, Weinberg and Caro are joining forces as Tahabdra to bring audiences new sounds and innovative live shows filled with ecstatic energy and thunderous live drumming. Tahabdra is much more than just pressing play on a computer.
