You may enjoy a sound sample or tonality loop as sound mantra for contemplation or meditation. This can help with upliftment, purification, and focusing. Or it could simply be used as soothing background sound for relaxation and regeneration. If you care to hum, chant, or sing along, you could use a spiritually charged syllable like Ōṃ / Aum ॐ, or HU, or another mantra syllable that suits you.

Tonality of the month: MinBlue

MinBlue on G — 5-string guitar and tanpura — September 2023 — 3:23 — as loop on a separate tab

The tonality of the month for September-October 2023 is MinBlue — a tritone or blues tonality. This catchy blues tonality may provide you a strong invitation to swing along. It might also reverberate in your being long after having listened to, played, or sung it, if you’re prone to that.

The Tonalibus name MinBlue indicates that the lower tetrachord is AeolDorian with tritone. The Reach step (augmented second) that typifies tritone or blues tonalities, besides of course the tritone, is in the upper tetrachord. The pitch distribution beyond the heavily contrasting tritone presents a lightly regressive and minor tonal flavor, akin to Aeolian and Dorian, equally anchored in both, quart and quint, the regressive and progressive.
