Earthing by gunnelpumpers published on 2013/05/18 03:22:40 +0000 "Earthing", the 18th of 19 tracks on Gunnelpumpers album, Montana Fix, is special. Constant lightning charges make the earth and its ionosphere ring like a mammoth gong, albeit at levels well below the human threshold of hearing. The strongest of these “Schumann Resonances“ is what some call the "Earth Resonance Frequency (ERF)." There are many facts and fictions about this frequency of 7.83 Hz, but one fact we derived independently is that it is a slightly sharp “B natural”. When Gunnelpumpers decided to record a track centered around percussionist Doug Brush's bronze Thai rain drum, it became apparent that the drum was a slightly sharp B natural. Everyone in the group tuned up to match, and, knowing of the ERF, dedicated this song to Mother Earth. After one magical take, “Earthing” was born.
