The original excavation in 1852 revealed a huge subterranean complex and long hallway that runs directionally east and west, flanked by chambers that house gigantic highly crystalline stone boxes. It is traditionally taught that bulls associated with the Apis Bull cult were buried in them; however the acoustic resonant properties and precision craftsmanship of the boxes may suggest another function altogether. Twenty-three "sarcophagi", or boxes, were made with extremely advanced technology, all weighing 70-100 tons each.

Auset is usually depicted wearing the throne, or "seat of power", reflecting the matriarchal nature of the very ancient civilization.

Singer/Vocalist, Overtone Singer, Composer, Researcher
Erika Mermuse is a singer/vocalist, overtone singer, composer and researcher who has always felt drawn to Egypt, and theorizes that music and acoustics will be an important factor in understanding how to unlock the hidden function and purpose of ancient sites and structures around the world with sound produced by the human voice.
Classically trained in vocal performance since adolescence, and her ability to sing in almost any musical style or genre, has her 22 year long professional career including solo work in over 50 languages and genres ranging from gregorian chant, to present day folk/pop/rock music. She has performed with celtic chamber groups and large classical choral ensembles as a tenure member and lead soloist, and received many awards for her singing including scholarships to Temple University in Philadelphia, and even performing regularly with The Philadelphia Orchestra and at The Academy of Music.
"Through toning and singing we will experience the power of acoustics at work within these ancient sites, and prove that they were undeniably built for a functional purpose. With the voice, we will generate a frequency and vibration, that will allow you to feel these sites come alive, and experience what our ancient ancestors had long ago..." -Erika Mermuse
