I'm trying to learn overtone singing because it brings all the boys to the yard. I started experimenting with it at the end of last year (2016) mostly to occupy myself on frequent car rides although I've been familiar with it for a couple years now. It was one of Anna Marie Hefele's videos that made me start. However, still when I think of throat singing, I think of Inuits and grunting and panting into a loved one's face... I may be using throat singing colloquially for something else. *winkwink*
As a band we are:
I had a band in college... then I realized I had no innate musical ability apart from lyric writing. Still I sing constantly much to the distress of all ears. Most instrumental skills have been completely forgotten.
Vocals, Ukulele, Guitar(s), Cello, Clarinet, Native American Flutes & Hand Drums (neither of which require skill lol), Ocarinas, Electronic Organ? (that's what she said)
My current fascinations are hydrophones and tank drums, both I would like to build if given the time and skills. I had a liking for Erhus and Qins in days of yore. And gamelans during my SE asian phase in middleschool. Basically, if it makes noise, I'm game.
Huun Huur Tu, Alash Ensemble, Hanngai... Alex E. Smith, Perry “Cheevers” Toppah, Nitanis “Kit” Landry (Largo), Pura Fe, Jennifer Kreisberg, Fawn Wood none of who sing overtones but they're where I learned to make noise out of my face hole in general.
