Profile Information

About me:
overtone and improvisation musician, TaKeTiNa rhythm teacher, leader of Bonner Obertonchor "vox intra voces", duo "vole voce" with Claudiha-Gayatri Matussek, ensemble "frequenzen", ensemble "transfer".

I understand overtone singing as part of the art of expressing the vox humana in all different ways, as a comprehensive musical art that has it's roots not only in the asiatic room but also in our own music tradition as well as in contemporary music. Beyond that overtone singing is the connection from the personal expression to the trans-personal world and a way to inner silence.

I like to co-operate with classical musicians, theater performances, classical indian musicians etc. allways looking for new forms of musical expression.
Instruments:
Tanpura, Shrutibox, Berimbao, Tschanggo, Mbira, other sound and percussion instruments
Influences:
Coming from classical and folk music my first contact with overtones came in the early nineties from the Bonn artist Udo Claaßen who learned overton singing from David Hykes records. I was faszinated, joined his group and followed the way of overtones since.

My teachers: Michael Vetter, Daniel Diestelkamp, Dorotheè Marzinzik, Reinhard Schimmelpfeng, Christian Bollmann, Ralf Peters, Prof. Renate Peter, Reinhard und Cornelia Flatischler.

Lieber Lothar,

dein bzw. euer Stück "Nachtgesang / Bilaskhani Todi" ist für mich eines der besten Stücke, die hier in diesem Netzwerk zu hören. Ich hab es deshalb heute - einen Tag nach Gandhis 141 Geburtstag und dem heutigen Erntedankfest noch einmal auf der Startseite vorgestellt (gefeatured).

Liebe Grüße auch an Soumyojit Das und Sourendro Mullick, die zu diesem Stück ihr Teil mit beigetragen haben. Gibt es diese Musik auch auf einer CD zu hören - ich würd gern eine erwerben.

Liebe Grüße und ich danke dir für deine Musik. Schade, dass ich bei overtone meets india in Berlin nicht euren Klängen und Melodien lauschen konnte.

Bis bald einmal,
Jens

Hello again Lothar, I shall think about suitable places in Sweden for you, how large is your ensemble ? I would also love to perform in Germany so if you have any suggestions for good places (even churches) please let me know.
Keep in touch

Hallo Lothar,
Kirchenorgel zusammen mit Obertongesang ist mir auch ein sehr interessanter Bereich.
Ist es möglich eine Cd von dir zu kaufen?

Gruss aus Schweden
Iver

Sei gegrüßt, lieber Lothar!
Schön dich zu sehen und zu hören, selbst in konservierter Form
kommt doch glücklicherweise immer noch ne Menge rüber an Seelenschwingung. Aber nix geht über eine direkte Erfahrung, also wenn Du wieder mal nach Berlin kommst, ruf gern an...
Mit klangvollen Grüßen
Miroslav Großer
