Nathalie Henrich, John Smith and Joe Wolfe: Harmonic singing (or overtone singing) vs normal singing

Harmonic singing (or overtone singing) vs normal singing



Harmonic singing shares techniques with diphonic singing, overtone singing, xoomi singing, sygyt singing, throat singing, Tuva singing etc. We explain some of the acoustics of this style of singing in terms of the measured acoustical response of the vocal tract. In this technique, the singer emphasises one high harmonic of the voice to such an extent that it is heard separately from the low pitched note being sung. Different… Continue

Khoomei - How To's And Why's







During the past year I have learned techniques of some throat-singing styles as practiced in Central Asia. With guidance from Maj. P.C.

The following is intended to offer instruction to anyone with interest and patience enough to learn a way to refine self-generated sound. Previous voice… Continue

Steve SKLAR: Types of Throat Singing with Tips /Tuvan Throat-Singing

Tuvan throat-singing, or Khoomei, is the area with which I have the most extensive experience. While I am familiar with other types of harmonic singing and chant, the main focus of this page will be Tuvan. You can find some information/links about other regions below.



All styles of Tuvan Khoomei involve controlled tension in and manipulation of the diaphragm, throat, and mouth. However, there are great differences between the different types of throat-singing; for example, some… Continue

BATZENGEL: Xöömij from Mongolia

Xöömij



There is a special vocal technique which has developed in Mongolia called xöömij (throat). It is sometimes referred to as the « jaw’s harp voice » and it is done by men only. It is a unique in that one singer produces two « voices » simultaneously. One of them is a prolonged droning of a fundamental vocal tone above which another melodic line with a whistle like quality is produced in a high register. By making the vocal chords tense and pressing the air through them… Continue

Campo di azione del canto difonico




Dal punto di vista del campo d’azione, il canto difonico è equivalente al canto normale, fatta eccezione per ciò che concerne l’ambitus.

Il tempo di esecuzione è evidentemente in funzione della gabbia ttoracica del cantante, dunque della respirazione,… Continue

Facciamo tutti del canto difonico senza saperlo ! Basta aprire la bocca ed emettere un suono di gola. Quest’ultimo è composto da un suono di base continuo invariante, tenuto alla stessa altezza, e da altri suoni più acuti, gli armonici. Il fatto è che non sappiamo ascoltare ! E,… Continue

Concert of European Overtonechoir

Today, it was wonderful. I was in Podebrady at the EOC (at the end of the meeting) and managed to record part of the concert. Just as much as the battery of my old notebook allowed me to. :)

It's a simple idea: gather people together and sing a continuous OM as a meditation for peace. On Easter Sunday March 23rd, 2008 at 6:00 PM EDT, US, people, all over the world, who want to give expression to their wish for peace will gather in groups to join in the sound of many voices singing as one in an extended OM.



Each person, as a meditation on peace, sings their own note at their own rate guided by their breath. Within the group this builds an exquisitely beautiful, rising…

My story of water ...



Grown up in Murnau at the Staffelsee, Germany, my wish as a child was to become a scuba diver, saving money for a diving-suit. Then moving to Neuburg at the Donau. Instead of a diving-suit I bought a trumpet. 1970 moving to Morenhofen, a place with its own mill and a little lake. I invented the Aquaphon, a wind instrument combined with a trumpet, tubes and resonators for water. 1980 during my music study times at the university of Cologne I composed… Continue

Christian Bollmann - Spirit in Soundspace

Background



My first encounter with sung overtones was in 1969 at a performance of Karl Stockhausen's "Stimmung" ("Mood") in the studio of the Beethoven Concert Hall in Bonn. The atmosphere created by the entirely new way of handling vocal sounds made me astonishingly alert and curious although I had always enjoyed singing, and had sung a lot, my main interest up until then had been in playing instruments. Just as I had recently heard synthesizer music for the first time, and… Continue

The Story of Our CD with Krishna Das

Gathering in the Light



In October of 2004 Krishna Das attended a release party for PRANA's first CD, "The Eternal Embrace". After Prana had sung, Krishna Das said to Baird, "Let's make a record together or something".



Over the next year the "or something" was Krishna Das inviting Prana to sing at his larger benefit Kirtans in the New York area. As a part of those evenings KD would join Prana to sing Baird's arrangement of his chant "Puja". The combination of the ethereal… Continue
