Jens Mügge sang as a child in various choirs. He started to play traditional folk songs and melodies on the jaw harp.

Now he accompanies his overtone singing with guitar, Jew's harp, tambura, sansula, kalimba, springdrum, singing bowls and various shrutiboxes.
Instruments:
Jew's harp, Guitar, Didgeridoo, Shrutibox, Singing Bowls, Jaw Harp, Maultrommel, Khomus, Voice

    Hallo Jens!
    Besten Dank, vielleicht sehen wir uns ja bei einem Obertonfestival in der nächsten Zeit (Dresden). Würde gerne kommen, weiß aber noch nicht genau, ob's klappt. Falls nicht da, dann sicher bei einer anderen Gelegenheit.

    viele Grüße,
    Johannes

    Hallo Jens,
    herzlichen Dank für deinen Willkommensgruß in diesem Kreis, du warst ja nicht ganz unbeteiligt daran ;-) Die Freude über eine Begegnung wäre ganz meinerseits. Habe mich in deinen Mailverteiler eingetragen und werde sicherlich die Gelegenheit nutzen, dich auf einer deiner Veranstaltungen persönlich kennen zu lernen. Wie ich aus deiner Webseite entnehmen konnte, haben wir sogar, was die ersten Schritte beim Obertongesang betrifft, gleiche Wurzeln. Einstweilen herzliche klangvolle Grüße Jürgen (Regenbogenklang)

    Hallo Jens,
    Ich wohne im Süden von Holland, 35 km von Eindhoven. Dass ist von Amsterdam ca 125km südlich. Ich arbeite durch ganz Holland mit meine Kollega in Soundfulness. Schöne Bilder und Klänge hast du.
  • Katelijn Vanhoutte

    Dear Jens, I just want to thank you very much for your website. It's wonderful, all those nice singers! All that nice music, allready with the music on your site I have plenty to excercise.

    Me myself I am rather timid, not a real performer. I am already happy when I dare to sing before 30 people in the workshop. So I don't know if a CD will be for this life....

    I wish you a nice sunday!

    Hi Jens,
    i'm very interested to make a performance together with you!
    Perhaps in Berlin, where I startet forging singing Bowls in 1994.
    You probably know a fine place to do it.
    I must go on the road again.

  • Billy Fox

    Hi Jens—Sorry to be so slow to respond... down with the flu!

    Although I do compose some pieces with specific overtones and multiphonics, a lot of what you hear is improvisational choices my musicians make. Most of my charts leave a lot of room for embellishment and interpretation by individual players...

    Cheers ~ Billy
  • Stuart Hinds

    Dearest Jens,
    Letting you know that my former student Jan de Kretser, who is currently Governess of Victoria has invited my overtone students into a private sound tour of Government House with her for March 20. If you were in Melbourne I'd tag you with us. My newest student Rowan Richardson has just joined OMN. He has a great future - His Kargyraa is off the planet.

  • Dean Frenkel

    Hi Jens,

    Hoping you are happily well.

    Today was a big day for overtones in Australia. The Governess of Victoria, Jan de Kretser invited me and 25 overtone students into Government House for a sound tour and it was amazing. We were given license to sing in the wonderful enormous rooms including the ballroom and the minstrel's balcony. At the end she even lay down and allowed us to sound bathe her. Much of it has been captured on video. It was a most memorable experience for all. This is the highest office of the Victoria and it was envlped by overtone singing.

    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! You can read, see and har more about us on our website www.contactmuziek.nl Some pages are translated in English, butyou can see veru much photos and videos. On the first page are two videos from july 2015 on which yu can see my encounter with butterflies! with love from the Netherlands Leonoor

  • Nicholas Truske

    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. :)

  • Richard Wicksteed

    Sublime music; thank you Jens.

  • Patrick Housby

    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.
