“At the root of all power and motion, there is music and rhythm, the play of patterned frequencies against the matrix of time. We know that every particle in the physical universe takes its characteristics from the pitch and pattern and overtones of its particular frequencies, its singing. Before we make music, music makes us.”
– Joachim-Ernst Berendt, The World is Sound
Listening to music can activate our imagination in many ways, causing us to remember moments of the past, explore ideas in the present, and even navigate through future possibilities.  Because emotion is an electromagnetic phenomenon, our bodies receive these waves of consciousness energy in a feedback loop of stimulation.

Sound is therefore not only healing because it can carry frequencies that tune the body to the Earth, but it also affects us emotionally.

In multiple studies researchers have found that when a subject listening to music is observed in MRI their entire brain will flash and flutter.  The entire brain.  The listening centers, the visual centers, the regions responsible for the regulation of the circulatory system, the immune system, memory, and any other function the brain handles – all are effected by listening to music.

If you are looking for an engineer/producer to turn you ideas into a finished product that really shines, Kyle should be at the top of your list.

Grant Warrens, Linga Tracks

I’ve worked with Kyle twice now, and willingly fly to Portland when I need to record. It’s totally worth it!

Kyle is a consummate professional. He is patient with people who are less familiar with the aspects of using a studio, and is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure you come away happy. The studio itself is a great creative space with awesome energy. You come away with exactly what you need but don’t feel drained after putting your creativity to good use.

Miranda Weigler, Voiceover artist

Needed Kyle on short notice to mix down a track for me, he did on short notice at a competitive cost producing a good end result.. Easy to get a hold of and very helpful!

Alexander Zalamov, Producer

I just started working with Kyle on my project and I’m so glad that I did. While Devine Noise is fully equipped and has a very comfortable and creative atmosphere, the real benefit of recording there is working with an engineer as talented as Kyle. He gives honest feedback, is patient, has helpful suggestions, and does everything in his power to make your recording sound as good as possible. His technical engineering skills were really impressive, and I was struck by how detail oriented he was. If you’re serious about your music, regardless of genre, I would highly recommend recording your project at Devine Noise.
