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

(Ret.), and access to his collection of vocal recordings from that part of the world, I have experienced fair success in executing the forms described below. 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
