Imaginative Music – Client during a listening individual session 

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 therapist or counselor 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 Psychotherapy and Counselling especially in relation to stress diseases.
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 therapeutic 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 Counselling.

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 Counsellor 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.
Every session has a standard duration of 45 minutes and includes the performance of different and short original 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 or to the most popular online music stores. 

Which are the benefits to use Imaginative Music in therapy?

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.

Is it possible to use Imaginative Music for therapeutic purposes without the guidance of a certified psychotherapist or counselor?

No. In relation to the workshops or seminars of Imaginative Music in application to Psychotherapy, Fernando Fracassi makes use always of the cooperation of psychotherapists with professional certification and experience in the sector. They support specific interventions during the works.
Imaginative Music is NOT a medical or psychological therapy in itself  but it is used to support therapy.
It folows that it cannot in any way replace medical or psychological treatment and is never used on Clients with diseases without a co-presence during the sessions of a medical doctor or psychotherapist. 
In this eventuality, special listenings programs are create individually for targeted therapies.
In general, Imaginative Music is used mostly on people without any pathology in a temporary state of difficulty such as for those who want to explore their inner world in order to achieve a state of general well-being and overcome successfully  temporary difficulties related to Stress.
