a common space & database for harmonic overtones
Maybe it could be fun and challenging to map some of the frequency bands of the human body - both as an emitter of frequencies and a receiver. It would be great if together we may find some patterns…Continue

An idealized, orderly, and multisymmetric presentation of parts of the interval material from Just intonation. All intervallic pairs with the same distance through the center are complementary within the octave.
The compass rose at the top left indicates that one moves horizontally (primarily the axis from 9 o'clock to 3 o'clock) in perfect fifths (right) and perfect fourths (left), respectively; in the direction of the axis from 1 o'clock to 7 o'clock and…

INTERTWINES MUSIC, MATHS, ... AND LANGUAGE!
Hopefully the above statement doesn't sound too overrating for anyone who personally has given attention to overtone singing, where the music very obviously is expressed through number and wovel sounds.
Two days ago I appealed for assistance to translate the interface of the Overtone Spiral program, and I am overwhelmed by the kind and generous responses, which may lead to a German, a Spanish, a Romanian, and maybe…

Marco Gianotta is a great friend and a formidable programmer. Some years ago he fulfilled my dream of seeing the overtone spiral in an interactive version, and he even added some opportunities which I hadn't dared to even dream of.
I am still confident that the overtone spiral/octave spiral is a most fundamental approach to the essence of music, and that this visualization may help not only to get a better grip of the nature of overtone singing and to relevant exercises, but also to get…

It is an interesting experience even thoughthe reverberation room is not designed for beautiful acoustics but to be able to meausure transmission loss of building elements (absorbtion of different materials). It is situated in the Technical University of Denmark, in Lyngby, north of Copenhagen. The surfaces are hard (concrete), and the cones on…Continue
