  • Introduction
An interdisciplinary team of stress researchers, neuroscientists, artists, designers and instrument makers have collaborated to create the OMIT instrument.
An analogue tool for stress recovery, experienced individually in short sessions, in a bespoke environment.
The unmistakably warm and relaxed sound of the instrument is sprung from years of development, delicate manufacturing and a precise and complex tuning process.

Following an initial hand-made pre-edition, OMIT is now accepting pre-orders for its first limited production, commencing winter 2020.

The OMIT Instrument is an analogue tool for stress recovery, experienced individually in short sessions, in a bespoke environment. A ground-breaking innovation in the field of stress relief, it is the result of three years of research & development by an interdisciplinary group composed of members from academia, engineering and the fine arts. Exacting manufacturing and a precise and complex tuning process creates a warm and relaxed sound that induces a state of deep relaxation in users.

Each and every instrument is made by hand by a skilled team of craftsmen and engineers. In every phase of the production one fundamental idea is at the centre – the desire to create strong and profound experiences for its users.

  • How it works
During a session, the user listens to the tones generated by the instrument for ten minutes while breathing deeply. The effect of these tones, delivered at specific intervals, is known as binaural beats, and create a relaxed state for the user.

A binaural beat is an auditory illusion, and the result of the interaction of two fundamental tones with a slight difference in frequency.

261.3 Hz
260.8 Hz
These beats are known to decrease brain frequency, creating a meditative state of deep relaxation and stress relief.
A specific breathing exercise has been created to be used during the session, which in combination with the beats gives the user the full OMIT experience – a deep sensation of relaxation and calm.

  • The Space
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Two spaces, along with a chair, have been designed to accompany the OMIT instrument for its global residencies. The room provides a fully self-contained, light- and sound-insulated environment, and the screen is suitable for quiet, private areas such as hotel rooms.

1. Fine-tuned aluminium bars
The bars generate two fundamental tones. Made from an aluminium alloy selected to produce the best possible sound, they are slightly concave to enable perfect tuning.

2. Saddle
The two hand made, fully adjustable saddles cradling the aluminium bars help sustain the sound.

3. Rubber ball
The ball is made from a rubber compound developed to generate the most effective sound from its impact against the aluminium bars.

4. Solenoid
The solenoid pushes the rubber ball against the aluminium in randomized intervals of 28-34 seconds, creating an impression of imperfection and thus signalling human presence.

5. Resonance tube
The brass tube has a rubber filling precisely placed to enhance and amplify the sound generated by the aluminium bars.

6. Stand
Two vertical stands made of Swedish steel support the instrument to ensure the stability and precision needed for a perfect and consistent sound experience.

  • Residencies
Following a private pre-launch in late October, Grand Hôtel Stockholm will host the OMIT instrument during a limited residency beginning on 6 November.

Hotel guests and spa members are invited to experience a private session in a dedicated space. Residencies in further cities will take place in conjunction with a global launch in early 2021. To enquire about booking a session, please contact press@omitinstrument.com.
