Overtone Music Network

a common space & database for harmonic overtones

Hello All,

I just had a paper published that you might find interesting. I can't put up the short article because it's in copyright, but the esoteric supplement is not. It's here, but go to the bottom of the page to download it: http://trumpetguild.org/journal-supplements

It's entitled "The Devolution of the Shepherd Trumpet and Its Seminal Importance in Music History".

If you can wade through it, it shows you how to put an old folk song in the harmonic series so you can play it on a wooden trumpet (or metal one – long, about 7 ft long with no holes or valves), or by throat singing.

So if you're a throat singer, you'll want to see how to convert (recover) an old folk tune that everyone knows like "Frere Jacques" so you can sing it using overtones.
