Who's who in Sonic Age America
An inventor, musician, instrument builder and fourth-generation precision machinist, Erik Larson has deep roots in production tooling and the converting industry. Erik was "instrumental" in creating the legendary Parker guitar and has a number of innovative technical designs to his credit.
In 1995, Erik moved to Vermont to work with Edwin A. Battison, a past curator of the Smithsonian Museum of Science and Industry, founder of the American Precision Museum and Franklin Museum of Nature and the Human Spirit.
Erik served as Vice President of the Inventors Network in Vermont and was a founding member of Sustainable Valley Group, an organization focused on building and supporting appropriate and "green" technology startups in the Connecticut River–Precision Valley region of New England
In 2005 Erik Larson founded Sonascope with Steve Fox in Vermont to design, develop, and manufacture commercial products in the field of cymatics including a children's toy and a series of electromechanical cymatic instruments.
In 2006 English acoustics engineer John Stuart Reid, founder of the UK company Sonic Age Ltd, sought the expertise of Erik Larson to develop the CymaScope, a precision instrument used to make sound, music, resonance and voice visible to the human eye. They founded Sonic Age America to develop all aspects of cymatics and the visualization of sound. Erik continues to play a pivotal role in advancing the form and functionality of cymatic instruments and cymatic imaging techniques for Sonic Age America, including the research and development for the study of sound in water.
In 2008 collaborating with Gary Robert Buchanan on the book SONA: Healing with Wavefront Bioresonance, Erik performed cymatic research imaging multi tone chords on his custom designed water drive cymatic devices now known as CymaScope H2O.
Erik took the position of Senior Engineer at a concentrated photovoltaic start up Cool Earth Solar in Livermore CA, developing system components and advanced optical measurement tools to used to optimize Cool Earth's 10 foot inflatable solar concentrators.
In 2009 Erik became President of HoloSona Group LLC in Reno, Nevada, a company co-founded with Gary Robert Buchanan and Adam Reed. Together they formed a team of researchers and engineers building new equipment to apply and study the effects of sound, light and color resonances on the human body.
Erik's educational background ranges as wide as his interests and includes courses of study in mechanical design engineering/material science at Wentworth Institute of Technology, sculpture and visual design at Southeastern Massachusetts University.
Annaliese Reid has been a teacher of energetic healing and sound healing
techniques for over 20 years and has taught at seminars in the United States and
Great Britain. She is committed to supporting personal well-being on all levels,
physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, and sees Sonic Age America as a
perfect vehicle for health enhancement through the power of sound.
