SINGING IN A REVERBERATION ROOM

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 the floor and walls work as difusers which spread the sound waves and allow an experience of a room much bigger than it actually is.…See More

Human Body Frequencies

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

OVERTONES – Music, Phonetics, ... and Maths intertwined

OVERTONE SINGING

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…

Translating the Overtone Reality

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…

Hi Skye
Jens gave me the link to your map soundplaces,.. I started a new group Overtone Music locations and my Idea is to creat a map like yours but for locations that present overtonemusic. How did you do your map can you help me or post one in the group?

Hi,
I read some of your explanations on the sound/color relationship which I consider really sophisticated. Cool.
