3 juli 19 – 22.00 Workshop

Learn more about the philosophy behind Divine 9: the Source Code. All religions, philosophies and mystic and mythological stories refer to the Source Code with numbers.

‘Van Broncode naar Wereldvrede’

De TEDx talk van Gert Kramer ‘Van Broncode naar Wereldvrede’ is 9 juni live te volgen online en in veel bibliotheken. ‘S-avonds is er een gratis Divine 9 concert van Juan Pablo Dobal.

Divine 9 is a new musical tuning based on the order and balancing principles in Nature

An alternative for the current equal temperament tuning.
With the Divine 9 tuning we make another sound which results in another sphere.

In his personal quest, Gert Kramer re-discovered “the Source Code” and this brought him to the idea to create a new musical tuning, Divine 9, which he created together with Evert Snel Piano’s & Vleugels. From his company Dragon 9 Gert offers consultancy, (musical) lectures, books and art in which “the Source Code” is the inspiration.

Jan Vayne in the TV-program Podium Witteman: “Each tone has its own characteristics, that I miss in the equal temperament. The Divine 9 tuning does something with people. And it inspires me as a musician. Much more than the flat, equal temperament tuning”. Experiences musicians and visitors concerts

In the news / press

Divine 9 in Podium Witteman
Gert Kramer (creator of the Divine 9 tuning) en Jan Vayne (who plays and enjoys the Divine 9 piano) told in the Dutch TV program Podium Witteman about Divine 9. An impression of the beautiful Divine 9 concert of Jan Vayne were shown and how the visitors reacted afterwards. The feedback of these visitors was wonderful, many were touched by the Divine 9 stemming.

Experiences visitors Divine 9 concerts

The Divine 9 music in general is experienced as full, soft, round, bright, deeply moving and connecting.

“You sit here and the is only this space, you loose your track of time and your worries. So beautiful”.

“The tuning was very pure”.

Jan Vayne in the TV-program Podium Witteman January 25th:
“Each tone has its own characteristics, that I miss in the equal temperament. The Divine 9 tuning does something with people. And it inspires me as a musician. Much more than the flat, equal temperament tuning”.

Musical lectures


“I invite you to see Gert Kramer as the Dutch Douglas Hofstadter, best known for the book Gödel, Escher, Bach. He has made the effort to take us mere mortals to a higher level of regularities as well”. 
Frans van der Reep (senior strategist KPN IT Solutions)

Two types of musical lectures are offered:

1. Lecture by Gert Kramer (specific for your organization)
Gert Kramer offers specific musical lectures for groups, companies or foundations.

  • With the Divine 9 tuned Fazioli 308 piano the cosmic Hermetic philosphy of balance and unity is shown. Gert explains what this new perspective can mean for the strategy, vision and (collective and individual) change programs in your company / organisation.
  • Optional is that a pianist plays the same (famous) compositions on a (conventional) equal temperament tuned piano and a Divine 9 tuned piano so you can hear and experience the difference of another sound clearly.
  • Gert advises company’s about ‘Fundamental transformation’, ‘Shifting Insights’, Cosmimicry’, and ‘Science by Nature’ and (industrial) implementation in products and services (Gert’s background; engineering Technical University Delft and nine years of management consultancy).

Gert Kramer:
”I want to offer a new perspective for the creation of a new reality, a new world. I envision a world with one Mankind who understands that Creation and Creator are one and acts accordingly. A world in which the cosmic principles of balance and oneness are understood and applied, nature is embraced as a Great Teacher and not destroyed for short term profit. In which mankind lives in peace with each other with space for multiplicity and uniqueness of each individual within the collective. Each individual understands that it is by definition part of the whole and that by strengthening the whole it strengthens itself without losing itself in doing so”.

“When a person acts from his personal strength, he of she is capable of moving mountains. I believe in the freedom of choice as when you order people it has no or only a temporary effect. A change can be triggered by something outside but not more than that. Real lasting change can only be realized by someone from the inside. That’s why our work is dedicated to inform people about other perspectives and not about convincing others. By someone’s own experience one can come to refinement and mastery“.

2. Lecture by a different speaker than Gert kramer
A speaker of a company or organization who is inspired by the Divine 9  tuning, music and philosophy can give a lecture him- or herself. Also the Divine 9 piano can be used.

Example: Promotion speech dr. Annika Smit, National Police academy
Dr. Annika Smit was inspired by Gert Kramer and his cosmic philosophy based on the Source Code and rented the Divine 9 Fazioli 308 piano and a regularly tuned Fazioli 308 piano for her promotion speech for the Dutch National Police Academy. She used music as a metaphor to show that people and organizations can work differently if they can “tune into each other” and how another choice (another sound, literally another music tuning) can result in a different sphere.

Masterclasses

We organize masterclasses so musicians can get to know and experience the Divine 9 tuning and the philosophy behind it. In cooperation with Evert Snel Piano’s en Vleugels. Participants are students, graduates and musicians who want to expand their knowledge and experience.

Stay up-to-date about the Divine 9 Masterclasses via our agenda and newsletter. Do you want to (co)organize a masterclass, contact us via an e-mail to info[ad]divine9music.com with your telephone number, we will call you a.s.a.p.

She used music as a metaphor to show that people and organizations can work differently if they can “tune into each other” and how another choice (another sound, literally another music tuning) can result in a different sphere.

The Divine 9 piano tuning is created together with Evert Snel Piano’s
We are very grateful for all their support.

Evert Snel about Fazioli 308:
“Paolo Fazioli calls his Fazioli piano “Un pianoforte per perfezionisti“. En that’s what Fazioli is: an instrument named the Ferrari of grand piano’s by a lot of pianists. The necessities for making a top of the world piano are passion for the music, combined with science, excellent craftmanship, continuing improvement of the technique and an enduring search for the best materials.

Fazioli is relatively new, it was established in 1980. But in her short existence it has reached a place between some op the top brands. The Fazioli 308 is the biggest piano of the world”.

Background Divine 9: why, how and what?

Quest Gert Kramer and why and how Divine 9 was created

Gert Kramer is the creator of Divine 9 Music. He states: “I am what you make of me”. Bridge builder, hermetic philosopher, entrepreneur, inspirator, creator, artist. Gert wants to be a bridge builder and inspire  individuals, companies, scientists, politicians and artists with an alternative perspective and to offer a fundament for another reality; world peace.

In 1996 he graduated at Shell as Civil Engineer at Delft University of Technology. Thereafter he worked as a management consultant and later as entrepreneur. He is father of three children. Because of the continuing unbalance and disharmony that he feels within himself and in the world in general, he starts his quest in 2009.

Personal quest
Gert Kramer asked himself why our systems and thinking are sometimes very linear whereas nothing in nature is linear. He discovered our thinking is partly based on a perspective with (implicit and explicit) assumptions. One of these assumptions is the use of numbers from 0 to 10 and beyond. Why do we use only this? What do we see when we use another “key” another numeric system?

The spiral / vortex shape is seen a lot in nature; in shape and in the way nature evolves. Gert’s central question became why he saw spirals / vortexes everywhere.

He recognizes, through application of the ancient nine based number system, the underlying perfect balance and order in the Fibonacci sequence; a mathematical definition of the spiral shape that stands centrally in all cosmic processes and principles. Gert discovers an universal / cosmic creation principle present in all manifestations of life and calls this “the Source Code”. He states that if we review our assumptions by these cosmic principles unbalance and resistance can be diminished. Other assumptions result in another perspective with as a result another reality. The application of the Cosmic Key of the nine based system in combination with Maät, the Cosmic Balance, results in the revelation of ‘Unity in Multiplicity’ and the ‘Order in the Chaos’. With this Gert enters a fundamental philosophic-spiritual-scientific playfield that in ancient times was known as the Hermetic Principles.

His research connects him with many worldwide religions, philosophies, mystic and mythological stories in civilizations throughout time. Here he continuously finds number and symbol based references to the Source Code; he calls it the One Cosmic Creative Principle. The knowledge of the Source Code is not new but was always present; in all cultures on all continents throughout centuries of human existence as a systems- / Cosmic / nature  philosophy. There is one sun from which all sun rays come to existence. Gert Kramer: “When the Rays of the Sun remember their shared Origin, it will be Paradise on Earth again”.

Prime numbers
Using this same perspective and the Source Code knowledge, Gert discovers that there is order in the distribution of primes over the natural numbers. In this way the importance of the nine based system as key to reveal cosmic order is shown.

Gert can explain and show the unity and perfect harmony in nature with exact science: mathematics and number theory. By using the ancient nine based number system the (otherwise invisible) repetitive pattern of 24 numbers with her perfect balance is shown. Numbers can result in certain shapes and tones (frequences), which can interferere in patterns. The origin of unity, order, balance and beauty are made visible.

Gert wants to make the Source Code visible in all kinds of ways, so that others can be inspired and touched by it. In this way he created various projects in art and music. He started his company Dragon 9 so he could share his projects with the world. To create a snowball effect so more and more people will think, feel and act from the Source Code and from connection. Gert consults companies, foundations, scientist and entrepreneurs to implement the knowledge of the Source Code in strategy and (industrial) applications.

Gert wants to offer a new perspective for the creation of a new reality, a new world. He envisions a world with one Mankind who understands that Creation and Creator are one and acts accordingly. A world in which the cosmic principles of balance and oneness are understood and applied, nature is embraced as a Great Teacher and not destroyed for short term profit. In which mankind lives in peace with each other with space for multiplicity and uniqueness of each individual within the collective. Each individual understands that it is by definition part of the whole and that by strengthening the whole it strengthens itself without losing itself in doing so.

Why Divine 9 and how it was created

“Met de Divine 9 stemming en concerten slaan we een andere toon aan waardoor er een andere sfeer ontstaat”. Gert Kramer

De Divine 9 stemming is een alternatief voor de gelijkzwevende stemming die wij heden ten dagen gebruiken. Het is een nieuwe muziekstemming gebaseerd op de ordenings- en balansprincipes uit de natuur, de Broncode. De onderzoeksvraag die hier aan ten grondslag lag was of ‘sfeer maakbaar is’.

Voor deze Divine 9 stemming wordt er geen gebruik gemaakt van het huidig gebruikte kwintenstelsel, maar wordt er een wiskundige formule gehanteerd van waaruit alle tonen worden berekend. Deze formule werd door Gert Kramer bedacht vanuit het principe van de 9 brongetallen. Vergelijk het met het schilderen op een doek waar je ook verschillende kleuren kunt gebruiken. De keuze van brongetallen, de getallen 1 t/m 9 bepaalt de ‘energetische kleur’ van de verftonen. Hiermee wordt de klankkleur opgebouwd die een bepaalde sfeer realiseert. Een stemming kan dus worden opgebouwd om een bepaald doel te faciliteren, oftewel ‘sfeer is maakbaar’.

Voor de ontworpen Divine 9 stemming is het getal 9 gekozen. De idee is dat de neutraliteit* van het getal 9, faciliteert dat iedereen zijn eigen verhaal, zijn klankkleur neutraal zeer helder weerspiegeld kan bekijken. De 9 is kleurloos anders zou er emotie zijn maar heeft wel alle kleuren in zich. Vanuit je Kern kun je dan zonder emoties zelf bekijken wat je wel en niet bevalt in jouw verhaal en dan, als je dat wilt, je kleur aanpassen.

Hoorbaar door deze stemming zijn de vele boventonen. Deze ontstaan door de interferentie tussen alle aparte tonen waardoor er een groepswerking ontstaat. Het geluid wordt als helder, vol en rond ervaren en alsof het nog makkelijker binnenkomt. De verhouding tussen iedere willekeurig gekozen combinatie van tonen geeft zowel voor de teller als de noemer een heel getal ergo er is altijd een gezamenlijke boventoon te vinden. Dit betekent dat er altijd een perfecte afstemming is.

Gert Kramer: “Het is een nieuw geluid, hoorbaar licht, gestemd in het sleutelgetal achter de perfecte ordening en balans in de natuur; de 9. Het getal van de stilte, het oog van de orkaan, de trilling van de neutraliteit, waarin de mens vanuit zijn Kern, zichzelf en de wereld met een meta-blik kan observeren. Om een faciliterende sfeer creëeren waarin je tot jezelf kan komen. Genietend van het moment, in acceptatie en indien je wilt introspectie van alles wat er nu is en in je hoofd en lijf speelt. Om eventueel te komen tot ontspanning, inspiratie en andere percepties en keuzes”.

De Divine 9 stemming is gemaakt op een speciaal aangepaste Fazioli 308 concertvleugel bij Evert Snel (pianostemmer, importeur en verkoper) in Werkhoven, Nederland.

Het ontstaan van de Divine 9 stemming
Gert Kramer was benieuwd en tegelijkertijd zo overtuigd van het feit dat hij zijn Broncode tastbaar en hoorbaar zou kunnen maken dat hij met de wiskundige formule, gebaseerd op de 9 brongetallen, naar de pianostemmer, importeur en pianoverkoper Evert Snel ging. Gert liet hem het schema’s zien, gebaseerd op de Fibonaccireeks en de Nineveh-constante, grootheden uit oude tijden in een opvallend verband met elkaar en alle terug te voeren op dit negentallig stelsel. Evert Snel die het wel een kans wilde geven stelde een Blüthner vleugel beschikbaar en een van zijn medewerkers, de Italiaanse Danilo Cosucci. Hij regelde de Blüthner in volgens de wiskundige formule. Dat gaat trouwens niet op het gehoor, zoals pianostemmers gewend zijn, maar met een computer, die voor elke aanslag een bepaalde frequentie genereert, die door Cosucci moest worden overgenomen.

In de Divine 9 stemming stammen alle tonen in een octaaf af van het ‘neutrale getal’ negen. Hij voerde zijn theorie door tot in detail, zoals ook de onderlinge afstanden tussen de tonen een negen zijn. Een eerste serie berekeningen leidde tot vijftig bruikbare frequenties. Later bleek dit in de praktijktest te smal. Gert gebruikte daarna de hoge frequenties uit de Nineveh-constante, het getal 195.955.200.000.000 dat in de 19de eeuw op een eeuwenoud kleitablet gevonden is. Deze frequenties deelde hij telkens door twee, om uiteindelijk in het hoorbare spectrum van energie te komen. Nu waren er 280 tooncombinaties. De berekeningen hadden effect. De aangepaste stemming werkte en de Blüthner werd geüpgraded naar een Fazioli 308 vleugel, die nog steeds in de Divine stemming bij Evert Snel staat.

Some quotes to inspire, which resonate with the philosophy of Divine 9 (more info on www.dragon9.eu)

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality.
It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”
– Albert Einstein

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
Nikola Tesla

“If an angel were to tell us about his philosophy, many of his statements may well sound like 2 x 2 = 13”
– Georg Christophe Lichtenberg, Alphorisms
