MUSIC OF THE WHALES
THE HUMPBACKS OF HERVEY BAY
ROBERT J. BOYD
Composing and blending his music to the rich voices of the Humpback whales of Hervey Bay in Queensland, Australia, was an enlightening process for this gifted composer. Robert’s gentle and non-intrusive instrumentation intertwined with the rich and unique sounds of the whales will help you drift naturally into a deep place of peace. Sit and listen to the whales’ song and let their extraordinary sounds relax and refresh your mind as you connect with these wonderful beings of the sea. The last track is a unique 30 minute meditation experience combining whale song, frequencies, harmonics and music.

Robert J. Boyd's deep association with playing music spans more than 50 years. Robert, a musician from the age of three, developed his musical gift through a journey of self-realization and spiritual intent. Gifted with an ability to play music which speaks to the soul, he has experimented and worked with sound and musical harmonics since the late 1950s and has developed unique methods using sound frequencies as a healing tool for pain, injuries and stress related disorders. Robert travels overseas frequently conducting lectures and workshops demonstrating his own "Silgar Method" of music and sound therapy, emphasising his message that sound, when utilised correctly, is one of the most powerful therapeutic mediums available to mankind. Having produced a number of successful CDs, all of which have a therapeutic quality and have been used in a wide variety of applications, Robert J. Boyd’s recordings are played on international airline flights, including Qantas, as in-house entertainment and three of his CDs were presented to the Royal family as part of the State gift of Western Australia.
