PLEASE HELP TSERENDAVAA

Dear friends,



In the past many of you have helped me to raise money for various charitable Tuvan causes, and now I ask for your help for a great Mongolian throat-singer in need.



Some of you will recognize the name Tserendavaa. He is a well-known, major Mongolian throat-singing master from Chandman Sum, and is well-represented on such classic cds as Jargalant Altai. Besides being a singer and one of the leading sources for foreigners for…

yodeling and overtones

I'm currently creating some very specific notated exercises for combining yodeling with overtones (SATB), using 2 completely different approaches.

The best I've heard in this area is Christian Zehnder, who has cleverly woven his national Swiss tradition into it. I'd like to open some discussion about this topic- any experience with overtone yodeling or fresh new ideas?



Anyway, in a yodel surfing expedition, found this completely amazing blog site 'Yodel Heaven', which has a huge… Continue

Evolution of human sound

The Complete Voice



Before symbolic language developed, there existed a high order of communication. This used gesture, facial expression, posture, and mimicry in movement and sound. Communication was slow but effective. Under these conditions human social behaviour and identity developed. As with much of evolution, behavior led and brain and body development followed.

As time went by and intelligence and the capacity for memory grew. It was found that communication could be… Continue

New Album "ATLAN" Review by Thom Jones

A Review of "ATLAN" by Thomas Jones

A secret truth revealed: Beauty and the Beast are the same

thing. Soriah’s chimera fusion with Ashkelon Sain has

produced a sprawling entity, darkly cloaked in groaning

atmospheres, yet emanating an ascending light of inestimable

beauty. Atlan is a deeply organic experience. Crisp hand

percussion palpitates rising drones in a cellular blood-rush

of life. Long, open expanses of slowly shifting tones hang

like low clouds… Continue

My book is finally out

Dear OMN community,

I'm happy to announce that my book "On the Physiology of Voice Production in South-Siberian Throat Singing – Analysis of Acoustic and Electrophysiological Evidences" is out now.



It took me really a long while . I actually started working on it in 2000 as my PhD project. Then of course - as many of you perhaps also know - there came other jobs, duties, projects. And finally I had to rush since in order to get a particular job I needed to finish and… Continue

Overtone arrangements offered

I am offering my services creating vocal overtone arrangements for your songs (or somebody else's!). The notation is written both with the upper melody in standard notation and with the numbered harmonics above the bass line. The arrangement will be as close as possible to the original, given the restrictions of the harmonic series. (Certain small alternatives for fundamental/bass pitches may be required). It is singable by an experienced polyphonic overtone singer. If desired, a demo mp3 may… 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

Vibrational Healing & Tibetan Dharma

Mysterious and singular the ancient Himalayan cultures created enigmatic instruments for the propose of inducing physical healing, spiritual consciousness and mental clarity.

Their creations are an alchemy of metal and sacred geometry known today as Tibetan Singing Bowls, Gantas/Vajras, Tingshaws and Gong. The vibrational signatures these remarkable instruments produce are metamorphosing overtones that heal the body and heart of sentient beings. Their songs/voices alter space, mind and… Continue
