Oh, It Hertz!

Oh, It Hertz! is a sensual deep dive into the sounds we surround ourselves with. The collective experience of sound. Documentary filmmaker Gunnar Hall Jensen collaborates with sound researcher and vocalist Laurie Amat in this exploration. Here we meet sound experts from all over the world, who give us both a personal approach to sound, but also a scientific perspective. This film is like a engaging music lesson where you will explore what the Nazis achieved when they changed the standard frequency of the A-tone from 432 to 440 Hertz. What does sound do to us? Can it manipulate us and be used as a weapon? And even more frightening, what did the Nazis know about this?
