Jacotte CHOLLET was born in a small village of Massif Central (France).
In GRENOBLE University, she completes her curriculum in English and Linguistics (Master).
Shortly after, she is proposed an internship at “Télévision Suisse Romande” in Geneva, a great opportunity for her to learn about different television jobs: writing sketches and scripts, doing reports in the Youth Department, internship in the Documentary Department, etc…
She is sent by a Swiss magazine to report on a music festival in the south of France where she meets Leonard Cohen, star of the festival. She conducts an exclusive interview with him and takes many pictures of him while he is on stage. He then chooses one of her photos to illustrate his new album cover : SONGS OF LOVE AND HATE.
She is then sent to Paris by Swiss television to interview heads of French television channels, including André VOISIN, director of FUTURE television progams at ORTF (French National television.)
Some time later, she becomes his “assistant” before gaining her stripes as film director, coproducing and realizing in his company fifty filmed documents for TF ( First french television channel)
In 1975, she exhibits her black and white photographs at “La GALERIE”, rue Saint-André des Arts in the 6th district of Paris.
Jacotte Chollet has been, in turn, a Photo Journalist, a TV Producer and film maker, a world traveler, a sound and music researcher, a consciousness explorer, a healing music creator, a transformational workshop leader as well as a painter and a graphic artist.
She has coproduced and directed over 50 documentary films for French national television presenting ancient cultures as well as new concepts and leading edge researchers in science, philosophy, psychology such as Fritjof Capra, David Bohm, Karl Pribram, Paul Mac Lean, Krishnamurti, Kishomaru Ueshiba (Aikkido), Konrad Lorenz, Norman Cousins, Stan Grof, Arthur Janov, Marilyn Ferguson, K.H Stockhausen (Creator of electronic music), among others.
In parallel, she has widened her vision through the eyes of remarkable men from ancient civilizations: PAPUANS from Papua New Guinea, SAMIS from Norway, Medicine men from NORTH AMERICA and Shamans from EQUATOR and COLOMBIA.
Her Enthusiasm, her passion for traveling around the world and discovering new points of view and different knowledge have opened her to a UNIFIED VISION of the human being : “a vibratory being” with multidimensional potential.
Her intention and vision have led her to cocreate an artistic thread of synchronistic events that shaped her path.
During the shooting of a documentary film about the BARDO THODOL, in a Tibetan monastery, in NEPAL, she is unwillingly transported into the ethers by the powerful vibrations of Tibetan music and she has to struggle hard not to leave completely her body which is entranced by the frequencies of sacred tibetan music and no longer obeys her !
But she does not understand, then, that this stuning experience is a call from the future and a reminder of her inner qualifications and higher sensitivity to be lifted in the ethers by sound and music.
Eight months later, only, the tremendous shock of her mother’s sudden death sets a new thread of synchronistic events and consciousness openings leading Jacotte to turn inward to investigate her psyche and trade world traveling for inner journeying.
A few years later, when sound synthesizers are available on the market, she starts using them to create “live” sound and music which proves to be an energy activator and a vector of multidimensional consciousness exploration.
While in a state of deep inner listening, totally free from thought or concern, she creates, in altered states of consciousness, intuitive music induced by profound inspiration.
While creating, she is traversed by strong vibrations, energy surge along her spine and a warm circling of energy round her head.
This new music created “live”, as a whole, on the keyboard is recorded all along and never corrected afterwards.
Thank to the synthesizer, she uses frequencies and sonic vibrations that cannot be produced by acoustic music instruments and she creates, in a row, a NEW MUSIC totally free from influences of the past.
In 1991, Jacotte created and produced her first CD : INVISIBLE PRESENCE.
In the same year, her synchronistic meeting with Régis DUTHEIL, Physician, Physicist and Professor at the Faculty of Medicine of Poitiers, instills a new dynamic in her research and creation.
Régis DUTHEIL suggests undertaking a series of analyses to demonstrate her music’s effects on blood cells of people submitted to one hour of resonance with it.
Very quickly, blood analyses bring to light a high increase in the haemoglobin level as well as an effect of overoxygenation of the blood and a “negentropic” effect of her music
(*Negentropy = establishment of order in cellular communication.)
In 1992, the book by Professor Régis DUTHEIL: La Médecine Superlumineuse (Ed. SAND), exposes medicine evolution from antiquity to modern times and evokes what a third millennium medicine should be.
Chapter VIII entitled: “Opening on a XXIst medecine exposes Jacotte Chollet’s research and her music effects on body and psyche.
In 1999, Jacotte presents her work at the first and second international congresses on Science and Consciousness in ALBUQUERQUE bringing together multidisciplinary researchers of a new science of man. There, she meets Barbara Marx Hubbard who experiences Jacotte’s music. She, later, mentions her special appreciation of Jacotte’s music : “We have been listening to your exquisitely unique music at the Foundation Office and find it takes us on a journey in consciousness” and shares her experiences with it, in one of her books. (EMERGENCE.)
In 2001, Jacotte gives 2 workshops and a conference at the International Conference on ALTERD STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS, IN Albuquerque. (New Mexico)
In 2002, she presents her music at the very first SYMPOSIUM on SOUND in SAN JOSE (California), and conducts a series of workshops with her music in BOULDER CREEK, PALO ALTO, SAN FRANCISCO, SAN RAFAEL, and at the Center for Integrated Medicine in SAN JOSE and in various other places in California. See Congress List
In 2003, she travels to RUSSIA where electroencephalographic and energetic measurements carried out in a laboratory in Moscow by Professor Dimitri VALUEV demonstrate the beneficial and creative influence of her music on brain waves.
Other measurements are carried out at the Institute of Bio-resonance IMEDIS by Dr. KAZAKOV in Moscow.
This study demonstrates *chakra harmonization after only 3 minutes of listening to her music. (*chakra = energy centers).
In 2006, she presents her music and gives workshops at the 1st Congress on HEALING MUSIC and the healing powers of sound in SANTA FE, New Mexico.
In Europe too, Jacotte leads workshops of consciousness expansion with her music as a vibratory support: in SPAIN, (MADRID, VALENCIA, SARAGOSSA), in PORTUGAL (LISBON), in ENGLAND (LONDON and CAMBRIDGE), in SWEDEN (GÖTBORG), in BELGIUM (BRUSSELS), in SWITZERLAND (VEVEY) as well as in France in DRÔME and PARIS where she leads each year her “Cycle of HOLISTIC EVOLUTION towards higher consciousness”.
Her personal transformational journey leads her to create 15 albums of Multidimensional music (MMD) which soon reveals to be an efficient tool of transformation, consciousness expansion, energy regulation, having a negentropic effect on cellular communication and unfolding of subconscious information and creative capacities.
OVER 50 pages of information about the adventure of creating this music, research on its effects on the mind body consciousness, endorsements by specialists, how to listen, is available on this website.
In 2021, Jacotte completes her Music SERIES : “Listening to the SELF, restoring our wholeness” with a 15th album : “ZERO GRAVITY” : “a timeless experience”.
List of her other albums: INVISIBLE PRESENCE, RENAISSANCE, UNITE (double CD), CREATION, SILENT LIGHT, SKY DANCING, HIGH SPACES, INSPIRATION, RÉCONCILIATION, ESSENCE, COSMIC HEART, PLÉNITUDE, INFINITE JOY, ZEN GARDEN, ZERO GRAVITY : Available from online shop
SCIENTIFIC MEASUREMENTS OBJECTIFYING MULTIDIMENSIONAL MUSIC EFFECTS
Effects of on blood cells
A series of blood cells analysis have been performed demonstrating the negentropic action of Multidimensional Music on the body (Mind-body consciousness).
Bood samples were taken from participants in workshops just after listening to one hour of Jacotte’s music.
A spectacular increase in hemoglobin level (number of red blood cells), as well as Hyper oxygenation of the blood were noted. Other measurements were made 3 days after the blood samples had been taken and demonstrated that compared with blood cells of people who did not listen to multidimensional music the rate of entropy measured after listening was showing 75% of preservation of the cell nucleus whereas in the blood cells of the people who were not exposed tp Multidimensional Music they were 100% destroyed by entropy showing that Multidimensional music was a vector of energy and intra cellular order.
Effects on brain waves
A series of electroencephalographic measurements were carried out on Jacotte CHOLLET’s brainwaves while she was creating her music, by professor Gunter HAFFELDER in STUTTGART.
Another series of electroencephalographic measurements were carried out in MOSCOW, with extremely sophisticated equipment by professor Dimitri VALOUEV at the “Institute of study of the higher functioning of the nervous system”.
These measures demonstrated the beneficial action of Jacotte Chollet’s Multidimensional Music on brain waves:
– Increase of THETA WAVES:
waves related to the states of super-creativity deeply buried in the SUBCONSCIOUS.
– Increase of ALPHA WAVES:
states of relaxation and deep meditation.
– Reduction of “bad” BETA WAVES:
frequencies manifesting states of disorder and hyperactivity.
– Increase of “good” BETA WAVES:
frequencies manifesting intuitive states and inner clarity.
Several years later, new brainwave analyses have been performed in BATH, UK to analyze Jacotte Chollet’s Multidimensional Music impact on Brainwaves using the “MIND MIRROR” and the AWAKENED MIND protocol*, created by C. Maxwell CADE to measure higher states of awareness”.
*Maxwell CADE and Nina COXHEAD have measured the brain profile of many healers, shamans and spiritual masters resulting in a classification of different brain profiles related to specific states of consciousness.
Measurements were carried out by ISABEL CADE on Jacotte Chollet, as well as on 3 other subjects including her while listening to Jacotte’s music, showing that it stimulates the brainwave profile of the CREATIVE state of awareness in an extremely short time inducing as well a deep state of relaxation and energetic self-healing.

Effects on the “chakras”: energy centers
A series of measurements on the impact of Jacotte Chollet’s Music on the energy centers (Chakra) was carried out by Dr. KAZAKOV at the IMEDIS Institute in Moscow, using a machine that detects and measures with electrodes, the energy in points of the hand corresponding to the different chakras.
These measurements demonstrate the harmonizing action of the energy level in the chakras that Jacotte Chollet’s Multidimensional Music exerts after only 3 minutes of listening.

Keops Pyramid in Ghyza
In 1997, Jacotte CHOLLET was invited by Boris SAID (film producer), to stay for a week in Ghyza to participate in an American television documentary film devoted to the discovery of the mysteries of the Great Pyramid of KEOPS in relation to SOUND.
During her stay in Ghyza, she is offered free access to the Sphinx, early morning, several hours before tourist arrival and during her sessions there, she experiences startling and powerful vibrations in her brain hemispheres while meditating in close contact with the Sphinx stone structure.
She is also invited to play her music live on a synthesizer, rent for this special occasion, inside the king’s chamber, after being left alone for several hours, at night, in the king’s chamber to let herself be impregnated by the higher vibrations and memories of this sacred site.
When listening to her music, afterwards, one would not only hear but feel the music vibrating and ascending, circling inside the pyramid thick walls, a quite amazing experience indeed!
In 2002, Jacotte travels extensively in the Amazon region, reconnecting with her passion for filming and photography. She is quite impressed by the natural interaction and interspecies collaboration inside the forest, between all its inhabitants.
She is amazed by the beauty of the powerful sonic expression of its inhabitants: toads and frogs at night, birds and monkeys during the day. She listens to the legends about mermaids perpetuating creeds about the magic powers of the pink dolphins living in its rivers.
She understands that beside being a great oxygen reservation for the planet, the Amazon basin is a womb, a tremendous feminine power expressing life under extraordinary artistic forms and manifestations. The forest itself being a gigantic medicine book for those who live in there and benefit from its manyfold medicinal ressources!
Jacotte perceives the Amazon basin as a model for the future developing integration of spirituality, interspecies collaboration, ancient knowledge and ageless natural beauty and deep inner wisdom of those who live along its multiple rivers intertwined amid the forest.
Colombia and Ecuador
In 2003, Filming adventures in COLOMBIA, with Amerindian shamans and sacred ceremonies with Shuar (JIVAROS) Shaman Hilario CHIRIAP in EQUADOR aiming at studying and filming different traditions and approaches to consciousness expansion with the Ayahuasca vine having a consciousness expanding power favoring inner transformation and healing.
In 2008, a trip to Bali, an island where a spirituality lived on a daily basis is still very much alive, and discovery of the exceptional resources of an island whose ancestral rites are still alive. Participation to several special ceremonies that occurs during this stay, 2008 was a very special year regarding ceromonies and special events in Bali.
