Jens Mügge sang as a child in various choirs. He started to play traditional folk songs and melodies on the jaw harp. At that early period he did not know that jew's harp playing is a kind of overtone music. Additionally he began to learn didgeridoo and was introduced to overtone singing 2001, developed his style of overtone singing on his own, and increased his knowledge of polyphonic harmonic singing by Wolfgang Saus in 2004. Now he accompanies his overtone singing with guitar, Jew's harp, tambura, sansula, kalimba, springdrum, singing bowls and various shrutiboxes.
"Maybe you can also try CD Baby - but there you have to pay at first for the distribution and CD Baby also will earn - I don't know how much - payment for each sold mp3 file or CD. Good is that they distribute your music automatically to iTunes…"
Much love for you music and passion Jens.. I have a question for advice. In your experience, what are some of the most well-made and best sounding Jew's harps that you would recommend? Thanks in advance and hope this finds you well.
Thank you Jens for including me here ! well wishes to you & your group in this coming new year ! I read talk of overtones here now & lately I have been enjoying to hear the cosmic overtones coming from my cello - I feel it is channeling some alien cellist. :)
Dear Jens, Tank you for your invitation. I like especially the overtones of voices, beautiful to hear the tones, coming from an another dimension, it seems. How you became interested in overtones? I was a violinist and also plays overtones on my instrument. Now I live with three other people in my home since 2006. I learned myself and my housemates playing the viola da gamba and the lute. We made bambooflutes of one tone ourselves. Children can play with us, every child gets a flute of one tone, together we play a melodie. So you learn to listen and coöperate. We play 2 part melodies with the bambooflutes. We also sing a capella 4-part songs from the renaissance and affirmation composed by myself. The affirmations we got during the 8 day process becomeing free from the need and going to live from light. We didn't eat 8 days and during 3 days also drink nothing.After that process we are free to eat or not. We are singing more and more slowly, and more and more overtones are audible, an very inspiring process!
