Wavecaster is the website for me, Chuck Wilson. After years of composing, playing and recording music, and teaching about the transformative effects of sound, I created this site to share an integrated view of my activities with music, sound and guitars.
Sometimes I feel like at least twelve people because I do so many different things. Here’s my bio, which is kinda long, but somehow still only tells a little bit.

About the Binaural Beats and Meditation Music:
A former Gateway Outreach trainer for the Monroe Institute, Chuck opened avenues of music and consciousness with his groundbreaking Harmonic Om and The Brain Training series. His relaxation and meditation music has been published by Tools for Exploration, Nightingale Conant, and Readers Digest. Chuck’s work with technologies that promote states of deep relaxation by sending sound vibration directly through the body is also featured in the classic book MegaBrain Tools by Michael Hutchinson who was a close friend and collaborator.
Perhaps the most articulate practitioner and explorer of the therapeutic benefits of whole-body sound is Chuck Wilson. A best-selling musician and composer, he is also the co-creator of Discovery Sound Systems, of which one model is the Aqua Bed I have used for years. As a result of his unique talents and years of research, Wilson is an authority on the effects of sound from the psychological and psychobiological points of view, as well as from the acoustic technology point of view.Michael Hutchison, consciousness pioneer and best selling author of Floating, MegaBrain Power, and The Anatomy of Sex and Power

A graduate of the School of Contemporary Music, Chuck has had a long career as a guitar player. (For those in the know, Chuck was a member of the well-remembered Boston band, Griswald; as well as many others on the coasts and in the Southwest.) He is an exceptional player, surprising everyone with his technique and ability to play any style.
In The Studio and Making Guitars
When Chuck is not composing, playing music or pursuing his passion for guitars, he is often in his Colorado studio mastering and producing for other artists. Recent projects include Radiance Matrix with Deva Premal, guided imagery for Amber Wolf and the Lemurian Sisterhood, and several soundtracks for indie films and animation. Oh, and Chuck has built 26 electric guitars (Wilsonwavecasters) which you can see on his website, wavecaster.com.
