Dear Overtone Singers around the world,

You are invitated to submit excerpts of your overtone singing and

You can be one of many stars of a compilation DVD devoted to harmonic singing, overtone singing, undertone singing and throat singing.

This dvd is currently being compiled featuring multiple excerpts of people overtone singing. It is hoped that many of the world's best overtone singers will be featured in this.

This DVD will be given away as an insert with every sale of a new book soon to be published: the Bonsai Book of Overtone Singing.

Already a number of 10-15 seconds excerpts have been compiled - all with permission.

It will be assumed that those who submit their video excerpts are giving their approval to be featured on the DVD. Please note that there will be no royalties payable to contributors.

MP4 format is acceptable. People are invited to make a number of submissions. It is recommended 15-20 seconds per item. Most submissions will be solo efforts, but group efforts will be accepted.
Please email submissions to and please don't wait too long before sending.

    "... aware there's not much throat singing in Sydney... yet..."
    I get the impression it's just me! But maybe I'm wrong. I'd like to be wrong. It would be nice to have some company.

    I don't get around much (heading to Qld for Christmas, but that's where the extended family are based). Went to Melbourne earlier this year (just for the day) but don't anticipate another visit.

    So until you come up to Sydney, Skype sounds like the best way to demo and discuss sounds and the making thereof. I hope I'm not classed as a heretic when I say I'm not too keen on the overtone (head) sound. I'm pretty much a died-in-the-wool Gyuto enthusiast.

    I'll add you as a Skype contact.

    Talk soon,

    No you're definitely not a heretic. Tonal practices of many sorts are precious (to me).
    I do practice and explore various different ways of undertones though I do spend more focus on the different ways of overtoning. Look forward to meeting on Skype.

    Best, Dean

    Hi guys,

    that's old topic but I am new in Sydney, so maybe we could do something at some point.
    Met the other week a Mongolian, really good throat singer. Was singing on a street in Newtown.
