What is Imaginative Music?
Imaginative Music is a new and innotavive music genre created by Fernando Fracassi (Copyright, GEMA, Munich©2021). More specifically, it is a particular style of Ambient Music which is used mostly to combat Stress, Anxiety and Insomnia and achieve a state of complete relaxation through the activation of Imagery and the interaction between the frequencies and sonority used in the compositions and the energetic fields of the psycho-physical body of the listener (resonance principle). Each organ, in fact, reacts to certain frequencies by getting in tune with the twin sounds with which it enters into a sympathetic vibration.
How is imaginative music performed and what is its repertoire?
Fernando Fracassi performs original music on ancient, traditional and ethnic flutes combined with electronics, concrete music (sounds of nature) and sound effects of everyday life to support the coach in his professional session. The albums are thematic by virtue of the focus of each session.
All compositions are original. They have been created on scientific base to support the intervention especially in relation to stress problems.
None of them belong to other musical genres such as Classical music whose pieces have been composed for other destinations and adapted to therapy as in the case of Helen Bonny’s Guided Imaginary with Music (GIM, USA, 1973). Imaginative Music, therefore, is currently configured as the best and most advanced method of using music for Coaching purposes.
Imaginative Music follows specific programs which are performed on a thematic basis. It privileges the functional use of music rather then its aesthetical aspect.
Each program is used in relation to the focus of the specific session and can be adapted during the performance of it in function of the emotional answer of the listener during his individual session.
How Imaginative Music works?
After an initial phase of relaxation through the Alexander Technique or other methods, the guide somministrates specific backing tracks to the Client which are realized in studio using ethnic flutes (shakuhachi, didgeridoo, Chinese dizi, etc.), synthetizers and different artificial or natural sound effects.
The Client listen to the compositions or parts of them using professional headphones while the Coach supports the imaginative experience.
Once the connection is established, Music becomes an active partner. It helps to create images and favors the appearance of ideas and possibilities.
The soundscape offered activates moods, body sensations and positive feelings. Insights and unexpected solutions can come spontaneously. Music becomes a strengthening force for personal development and conversational interventions are no longer effective.
The session ends with the Client comment on the experience.
In the eventuality of workshops for groups of Clients, the musical selections and related exercises are proposed using live musical performances without the use of headphones. The work is integrated by exercises of positive visualization and creative imagination taken by the Stanislawsky Method for Actors.
Every session has a standard duration of 45 minutes and includes the performance of different and short original Imaginative Music compositions.
The program can be continued comfortably at home applying the finalized exercises learned during the residential or online sessions, using the musical selections offered on thematic FLAC and MP3 which are available for purchasing on this website.
Which are the benefits to use Imaginative Music in Coaching?
Through regular sessions of Imaginative Music, the Client can develop is own potential, get to know better himself, interact positively in society and improve the quality of his life with a consequent and meaningful lowering of the level of Stress and a recovery of both psycho-physical energy and inner balance.
Can the Imaginative Music replace Psychotherapy or a medical intervention?
Absolutely not. Imaginative Music is a specific and innovative kind of coaching and NOT a medical or psychological therapy in itself.
It follows that it cannot in any way replace medical or psychological treatment and must never be used on Clients with heavy psychiatric diseases for which it is strongly suggested an effective medical support.
However, this musical genre can be used by medical professionals or psychotherapists (Imagery) to support their intervention only after they have thoroughly learned the compositional styles of Imaginative Music and their administration system during the sessions. It follows that it is basic that these professionals take part to workshops, webinars, seminars and conferences before they start to use Imaginative Music to work competently and effectively with their Clients. These events are hold regurarly by Fernando Fracassi during the year.
