Welcome to Australian Soundscapes

Profile Information

About me:
Harmonic throat singing recording artist/performer, instructor, author of 'The 8th Natural Wonder' - a book on throat singing, Guinness world record holder for the longest continuous vocal note. I'm passionate about the broad spectrum of throat singing and deeply concerned that it is endangered in so many of its traditional grounds. Throat singing is also central to my spiritual practices.
As a band we are:
Solo, in duo with Linda Laasi, in trio with Linda and crystal bowl player - Arrayah ...... Mia Mia Harmonic Choir, formerly with Aajinta, Soteria Bell and the Eternal Choir (which wasn't too eternal)
Many techniques of harmonic voice, didgeridoo, jaw harp, harmonic whirlie, native American flute, harmonica
Sounds of Nature and the nature of sounds and harmonic humans everywhere - I don't like to think in terms of 'influences', more as 'contributors' to my living songline. If so then David Hykes, Shu De, Tenores de Bidis, Sarah Hopkins, Gyuto Monks, Hun Hur Tu, Bruce Rogers, Peter Gleeson

An enormous collection of singing styles share common elements - opera, jazz, country, blues, rock n roll, gospel, pop, funk, rap, soul, et al. They sing songs, songs with words, words which emphasise whole notes, duration of singing breaths mostly under 10 seconds, and usually within a restricted zone of medium frequencies. Throat singing has none of these parameters.

The many styles of throat singing don't need songs or words - vocals are… Continue

Hey Dean, how have you been? hope all is well!

I have posted a demo song on my page that I have been recording with a good friend of mine who is an engineer who does film scores amongst other projects. I'm really excited to start showing people and get their feedback. Be great if you check it out and let me know your thoughts! :D

Thanks mate, see you soon at Mia Mia :)

Hi Dean,

thank you for sharing your news on my comment wall of my profile page. Maybe it is stuff for a short blog news here on your profile page? It is really nice to know how we infect our societies with overtone singing. Last weekend I participated at a trade giving three overtone singing lessons for about - 3 meetings all together - 50 people. Stay tuned and we are staying in contact.

Yours Jens

Hey man, today was a really cool experience, thanks so much!!

I could really hear more depth and clarity in everyones overtone singing not to mention the character of everyones voices. Was great to listen to!

Looking forward to more throat singing adventures! :)

Hi Dean,

tomorrrow I will be on a small island for some days. But sure I would prefer to be with you in Australia. Thanks a lot for introducing Rowan. I saw only that he is influenced by you and Huun Huur Tu, but to know he is a student makes it much more personal. I like your idea about Australia meets Europe I got some ideas considering next year. I like to think and meditate upon it before I will tell it you. Maybe you seen that I performed or I will perform with some friends in the next months ...

Hey Dean, thanks for your comment! Thanks also for the tip on the weekend, been practicing singing softer, its helping me be relaxed and throat sing more naturally. Who is 'Jens' by the way? lol

Hi Dean,

I agree with you. This performance in front of a audience with 4000 and knowing that this show will be seen by 7 Million people in Germany was really tremendous. The next gig will be a live broadcast. Then Hosoo has a second change to win new fans. More than his performance I love the view into the faces of the audience. I am getting goose bumps if I see this video again and again. All the best,

Hi Dean,

thanks for your response. It was really a special show. Hosoo, the mongolian throatsinger star in the german supertalent show of Dieter Bohlen etc.. This guy Dieter Bohlen was duet partner of Modern Talking and he made some jokes about Hosoo & Tsomoo that Hosoo could be the mongolian Modern Talking. I think he was speechless but had to talk something - the result is: just simple joky trash out his mouth. Bohlen comes from Lower Saxony like me, so this is only a flat kind of humour of a countryman :-)
