40 Hz - The Keystone of Consciousness
The music, tones, and psychoacoustic sounds of Gamma 40 guide your brain/mind into a blissful state of coherence, clarity, insight, focus, creativity, and compassion.
In the 40 Hz state, your brain waves resonate at the frequency that is the key to consciousness itself, allowing you to rapidly process a rich abundance of sensory and mental information and integrate it into the seamless wholes that form connected “moments” of presence, attention and boundless awareness.
Blissful. Really. Elation and respite together. ~ Neal Szpatura

Don’t be fooled – this is not just intriguing and dynamic music – it is the design and technology
infused in the soundtracks that evokes the awareness and relaxed focus.
Gamma brain waves (26 to 99 Hz) are fascinating. First, because they disappear during anesthesia, suggesting an intrinsic relationship to consciousness itself, but also because they abound in the brains of Tibetan monks, who are long-term loving kindness meditators.
So gamma waves seem to be central to harmony— perhaps even the brainwave signature of compassion itself. Gamma arises while processing all that comes in through our senses, as if they are the glue that helps us have a coherent picture of all the sensory data we receive moment to moment.
They’ve been found to be linked to heightened perception, extremely creative states of high performance, focus, and clarity, as well as to high intellectual comprehension and acute self-awareness and spiritual insight.

Enter the brilliance and fullness of pure consciousness…
Research into gamma brain waves, specifically those at 40 Hz, has shown that this frequency may be the key to consciousness itself. At the frequency of 40 Hz, the brain engages in the process known as “binding,” which combines the disparate sensory data from our five senses (or six including mind/thought) into the single cohesive experience we know as “being conscious.”
When the brain entrains to the 40 Hz frequency, the experience of consciousness is amplified and strengthened beyond its normal capacity. Gamma waves allow you to rapidly process a rich abundance of sensory and mental information and integrate it into seamless wholes, forming connected “moments” of presence, attention, and boundless awareness.
People using Gamma 40 report experiencing a mind state of “relaxation with focus,” “elation and respite together,” and find it’s “a great program for synthesizing ideas, focusing, and stimulating creative thinking”—“the antidote to feeling stuck or aimless.”
Whether used for meditation, work, creation, or exploration, Gamma 40 is a powerful tool for “checking in” and embracing, with full engagement, the feeling of being profoundly awake and vividly alive.
Using similar approaches, I’ve conjured a spiritual mood in certain places in these tracks, and that of a hero’s journey. Though there are moments of placidity, these are very dynamic tracks. The recordings are adaptive enough to match the intention of the listener, and have an ebb and flow and changing stream of experience without pulling too much attention to themselves. So, we offer you this Gamma 40 program with the positive expectation that you will find it to be a common “go to” in your bag of tricks.

The Story of the Development of Gamma 40 from the creator, Leigh Spusta
Having done both theta and delta programs previously, it was a logical progression to move into the gamma domain—especially given the recent attention that the gamma brainwave state has gotten. So, I began to research, listen to existing tracks, and contemplate how I would like to approach it. Eventually I decided on primarily using a psycho-acoustic approach, because I felt it would be the best way to create a journey type experience, and encourage the mind to step up its cognitive functions.
Using sounds, textures, and musical motifs that promote different psychological tendencies was, to me, as important as the use of the 40 Hz isochronic entrainment rhythm. There are moments in the soundscapes when the listener’s ear and attention have to say, “Hmm, what’s that?” This is a way of getting the mind’s inquisitive aspect amplified, which serves to increase focus and awareness.
How to Use
Download the iAwake App
First, download the FREE iAwake App, login with your email, and all your tracks will be right there. You can stream them, but we’d advise downloading them (from within the app) to ensure an interruption-free experience, and to be able to listen offline.
Track 1 (Blissful Cognition – 10 minutes)
This is the most active or dynamic of the three tracks. This one is best suited to be used when you either have a limited timeframe or when you want a push into gamma followed by a quiet space to reflect, observe, or focus. Over time, these tracks become more effective as the brain learns to get into the state more quickly, so this shortest one becomes a great tool.
Track 2 (Blissful Cognition – 20 minutes)
This track is a little more relaxed than the first track. This allows you to immerse yourself a little more fully into the experience of the sound, allowing for a deep comfort and yet helping to maintain a psychological state of focus and clarity.
Track 3 (Cognitive Bliss – 40 minutes)
This track will take you to the depths of calm. The body lets go of tensions held in both body and mind, allowing you to explore the awareness of the gamma state from this profound and immersive space. This is the most metaphysically charged track of the three.
These tracks were composed primarily with a psychoacoustic entrainment method in mind. This means that the flavors, tonal qualities, melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic content were crafted to elicit a particular range of psychological and emotional responses (musical phrases like this are generally referred to as “cues”), much like what happens with scoring for TV and film.
We also employed ambient and vibroacoustic drones for their potent calming and centering effect. Lastly, we incorporated a 40 Hz phase modulation, essentially a variation of an isochronic rhythm, in order to drive the brain waves into gamma dominance. These tracks can be used individually, or can be listened to in sequence.

I was able to concentrate on the task at hand without my mind constantly wandering – loved it! ~ Allyson
It was like getting plugged into an energy source that left me feeling better than before I started the meditation, but relaxed. ~ Robbin
