Jeff Volk: Poet, Producer and Publisher
For the past 25 years, Jeff Volk has been popularizing the science of Cymatics, which demonstrates through simple physics experiments how “inert” matter can be “animated” into life-like flowing forms by the unseen forces of vibration. The implications of these experiments are vast and have inspired profound insights into the hidden realms of nature in many who have seen them. These insights pertain not only to our world at large, but also in deeply personal ways to the subtle realms of human nature, which are often just as mysterious. As a producer, his 1992 documentary, Of Sound Mind and Body: Music and Vibrational Healing, won the Hartley Film Award through the Institute of Noetic Sciences. Its phenomenal success inspired him to produce The International Sound Colloquium throughout the 1990s, which was to become the premier conference exploring the power of sacred sound and healing music. He has distilled this wealth of experience into multimedia presentations and a variety of feature articles which have been published worldwide. His company, MACROmedia Publishing, focuses on books and electronic media which inspire and enlighten the discerning spiritual seeker.

Award-winning video producer and science publisher, Jeff Volk, turns his gaze inward in this poignant and penetrating poetic storybook, exploring the dynamics of a seemingly intractable relationship. The poems are intensely personal, ranging from playful to painful, yet the themes explored pertain to all who dare to live life fully, to feel deeply, and to dive fearlessly into that mysterious milieu of love, longing, and the promise of transcendence.
And... An Ode to Cymatics
Firmament of Sound
Before there were eyes to see
when a vast darkness still permeated the void,
All rested beneath a firmament of Sound.
I stare into the primal pool
breath ripples the water
and light appears –as if from within–
a raiment of pastel profusion
barely the faintest hint of definition.
I open myself and eyes appear
–as if from within–
so that I might see myself
apart from the landscape,
a part of the landscape–
my original face
peering out of the darkness,
peering into the void.
Without fear; without pain;
no sharp edges; no hard places;
Nothing to recoil from
no need for protection
no need for rejection–
I raise my voice and Behold! I Create
my own personal playground,
a universe of figure, form and motion
arising from my impetuous imagination.
