The Philosophy of Philozophi

"Music is your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom." --Charlie Parker, U.S. jazz musician

"Music’s a wonderful background for our thoughts, isn’t it?" --Arnold Phillips

"This music crept by me upon the waters,
Allaying both their fury and my passion
With its sweet air; thence have I followed it,
Or it hath drawn me rather."

--William Shakespeare

"Music is the sound of the universal laws promulgated. It is the only assured tone. There are in it such strains as far surpass any man’s faith in the loftiness of his destiny. Things are to be learned which it will be worth the while to learn."

--Henry David Thoreau



Ancient Indian philosophy regards sound, namely Om, as the essence of the universe. These basic vibrations are used in chanting, and can be studied in their relevance to chakras. According to the diagram, a chakra (energy center of the body) corresponds with a musical note on a scale.

These frequencies have an effect on our feelings that can alter chemical reactions in the body.

A listener's experience is unique, and in turn interpretations vary. This is what makes art and creation so wonderful.

The musical band Philozophi was created with these aspects in mind, and of that in which interpretation and expression can be very valuable in healing, intuition, and outlook.

Philozophi is an experience of fusion, combining different elements and genres of music, and bringing them together. Enjoy.
