»Overtone Music Network« or with capital letters: OMN is a free multifunctional portal and platform for overtone music and for all who enjoy this kind of overtone music. It is for all who are interested in the magic of harmonic, polyphonic and overtone music. If you are a member of this network you can improve your contacts to overtone musicians worldwide and create your own songlist of 100 songs of this platform. As an overtone musician you can share your ideas and conceptions about overtone and harmonic music. The special kind of OMN is that you can listen songs by musicans who are sharing their music with you for free. In this way OMN is a non-profit network. If you like this kind of music which contains elements of instruments with a high content of overtones like a didgeridoo, gong, jew's harp, singing-bowl, tambura or other instruments and as well overtone, harmonic or throat singing stay in contact with these musicians and enjoy their concerts, workshops and events worldwide. Check out our event calendar! In this way OMN is a buisness network.
What are Overtones?
In most cases where a sound is created by natural means (such as a musical instrument or the human voice), a number of higher tones is produced in addition to the fundamental pitch. These higher tones are called overtones, partial tones, or harmonics. The sequence of these tones is called the overtone series, harmonic sequence, or sequence of natural tones. The combination of the fundamental and the overtones is the frequency spectrum of a tone.
The Goal of OMN is to present the multiplicity of harmonic and overtone music on one platform. Overtone Music Network would like to facilitate the unity, community and personal ties among musicians and non-musicians.
OMN is a business portal for overtone music. Five Network Sponsors made it possible that I could purchase all Ning Premium Services. They paid 60 € per year until June 2009. This includes for you as a musician that Overtone Music Network is a platform to promote your overtone and harmonic music. You can post informations about your concerts and workshops in the Event Calendar and news about CD releases and other informations in your own My Page - for example in your own Blog.
