“The first moment I heard this, the sound blew right inside me and lifted my heart. Every time I play it, I feel the joy of honeybees and humans singing together.”
~Jacqueline Freeman, Spirit Bee
“It was transportive and gorgeous and immediately identifiable (and effective) as Journeying music. I loved it and only wanted more of your beautiful voice.” ~Laura Bee, College of the Melissae
“I love the interweave of song and bee voice. Your words are evocative and can be "imagined" many different ways. Lovely! Sweet! Makes my heart spill over. Eyes, too. Your voice sweetens the bees.
It is magic. Just magic. So gifted, you are!”
Nature's Peace, ~ Susan K., Natural Beekeeping Teacher and author
“I just sat with the Light of Hum ... took the journey and wow ... I am still humming inside. It is so so exquisite, the "welcome my friends" (from the track Heal Me). I am moved to tears. I am SO happy you have created this and it will be shared with the world.” ~ Debra Roberts, Center for Honeybee Research, The Sacred Path of Bee, Holy Bee Press
"I have been working with the bees holistically for over 20 years and my deep concern for the bees has lead to the forming of The Bee Guardian® Project which is now thousands of individuals who are helping to bring awareness of the bees decline and helping to create safe habitats for the bees worldwide. To further this outreach I have finished the album called "The Light of Hum" which has many of my beautiful bee recordings intermixed with my vocals. The album will be the sound track for my new film with the same name, "The Light of Hum". The album was created to be listened to as a 40 min meditation on the Bees and the beautiful sounds that they make, the hum that began thousands of years ago and has never stopped on our blue planet. I recorded hundreds of hours of the bees hums and have filmed hundred of hours of bees and flowers. The film is inspiring on many levels and by action there is hope for the bees welfare"

The "Light of Hum" celebrates the triad of bees, flowers and humans. The bees symbolize Unity, as much as it appears there are many individuals comprising the hive, they are in fact a single organism. The bees gather nourishment (life force) for the whole, by moving out in all directions. As the bees return, their life force becomes part of the hives very structure. They inhabit the collective sum of everything it has gathered. We can also individually bring our own energy into our communities, so that others in the “hive” will benefit from our contribution and everyone has a role in the health and evolution of the “hive”.
Corwin performed the Light of Hum music every night at the interactive Red Lightning camp dome Burning Man to raise awareness of the current state of the honeybee as unsustainable and we need to do everything in our power to make a difference!
“I feel a deep resonance with human voice and bee sound... what you do here is what I would call the medicine of the future!! Very deep and reaching out towards the "Amber realm". “
~ Michael Thiele, Gaia Bees
“I love it. I have been using it in my meditation and it is beautiful! the beginning part I love.
Yesterday I was doing a talk on "Awe" and I listened to your recording before and meditated and I felt a clear voice from the bees on what to say, talk about connection, awakening. It was really great. I talked about bees all night....I love you, thank you for doing this. Keep creating!!!! Keep inspiring!!!!”
