Song of the New Earth is a new feature documentary about one man's quest to integrate modern science and ancient mysticism through sound.


An award winning team including director Ward Serrill (The Heart of the Game, Miramax), editor Eric Frith (Eden), New York Times animator Drew Christie and producer Betsy Chasse (What the Bleep Do We Know?!) presents the extraordinary life of Tom Kenyon, a country singer turned brain scientist and sound shaman.

The film follows Kenyon’s journey from the stage on Broadway, to giant caves in the south of France, the golden-chandeliered symphony halls of Vienna and finally to the snowy peaks of Tibet, performing with the unique - almost four octave range - voice which has earned him a worldwide following.

More about the film
Tom Kenyon was on his way to fame as a country singer in Nashville when he began to experience uninvited paranormal states of consciousness. His quest to understand these experiences sent him on a journey into Tibetan Buddhism, Yoga, mystical Christianity, Shamanism, the Taoism of China, and Egyptian alchemy.

But spirituality did not give him all the answers he needed, and he turned to science. He discovered that neurophysiology had a language that could help explain his mystical experiences. After qualifying as a psychotherapist – in part, he admits, to find out if he was going crazy - he spent years studying the effects of sound and music on the human brain and nervous system and is now an internationally recognized authority on the science of sound.

The film explores in depth the cutting edge scientific research which proves that sound shifts brain states and promotes dramatic healing. Song of the New Earth presents not only Tom Kenyon’s extraordinary journey but also an unforgettable experience with sound.

Regardless of a your religion or belief system, Song of the New Earth informs, inspires, and provides an extraordinary opportunity to experience how sound and music can be powerful medicine for ourselves and our world.
