Virtuoso Overtone Singer from Texas

Profile Information

About me:
I am active as composer, singer, choral conductor, and teacher. The majority of my compositions involve the use of overtone singing, including works for solo voice, for voice with instruments, and choral works. I have presented concerts, lecture-demonstrations, and workshops throughout the US and Europe. I am a published author and composer, with articles in the Journal of Singing and Choral Journal, and choral compositions with Friedrich Hofmeister Musikverlag. I earned a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in music composition from The University of Michigan. Check out my website www.stuarthinds.com for more informations, booking and workshop and c oncert schedule in English.
Below are informations in German:
Stuart Hinds ist als Komponist, Sänger, Dozent und Chorleiter aktiv. Die meisten seiner Kompositionen sind vor allem für virtuose Obertonsängerinnen und –sänger geschrieben. Darunter sind Werke für Solo-Stimme, instrumentale Stücke und Kompositionen für Sprach-und Chormusik.

Stuart Hinds gibt Konzerte, Unterricht und Workshops in den USA und Kanada, Deutschland, Belgien, Österreich und in Tschechien. Seine musikalischen Werke sind in Artikeln der „Zeitschrift für Gesang“ und dem „Chormusik Journal“ erschienen. Im Friedrich Hofmeister Musikverlag sind neuerdings Chorwerke von Stuart Hinds veröffentlicht worden. Stuart Hinds promovierte an der Universität in Michigan zum „Doktor of Musical Arts in Komposition“.
Stuart Hinds ist einzigartig unter den Obertonsängern. Er hat diesen Gesang mit Virtuosität zu einer neuen Kunstfertigkeit geführt. Er erlangt ein bisher selten erreichtes Level musikalischen Ausdrucks, wenn er zeitgleich über den traditionellen Bordunklang stimmlich zwei unterschiedliche musikalischen Linien entwickelt. Seine Kompositionen sprengen dabei die Grenzen des üblichen Obertongesangs und kreieren ein völlig neues Genre der Musik, die jeden Musikstil umfassen.

Stuart Hinds Werk spiegelt zum einen seine klassische Ausbildung wieder, mit musikalischen Einflüssen unterschiedlichster Kulturen – sein einzigartiger Stil begeistert ein weites Spektrum von Zuhörern. So schrieb ein schwedischer Musikkritiker; dass „Hinds ein wahrer Meister der Obertongesangstechnik ist“ und kommentierte: „Ich habe bisher noch nie so etwas gehört. Seine Musik zeigt eine wahre und unverfälschte Kunstfertigkeit. Ich schätze mich glücklich, dass ich auf seine Musik gestoßen bin, welche mir nicht nur musikalisch Freude bereit, sondern mich zudem spirituell erhebt.“

Overtone Singing as a Choral Art

Great news! Peggy Dettwiler and I have been invited to give a seminar at the 10th World Symposium on Choral Music in Seoul, Korea in August 2014. Our program is entitled: "Overtone Singing as a Choral Art." Our presentation will fit in well with the unifying theme for WSCM-10: the concept of Youth and 'Healing' as a means of understanding through choral music. There are 75…

Thank you for the connection!
"There is lots more where that [Rennaissance Man] came from": you made me curious - eaven more than i allready was - did you sing or compose more similar things? or is it actually a part of an old byzinium? of course there is an extra rule, to make it possible to sing: onely intervals that are in the series between the two voices...
I would be so interested and delighted to hear more about the lot more...

Hi Stuart,

Greetings from Bern. Tonight I will give a performance with Willi Grimm at this wonderful place at Klangkeller. Thanks a lot for your card with your slideshow movie clips. Texas looks wonderful. Another different place on earth. Last year was a very good experience to manage some concert gigs and seminar classes in Berlin. I hope you are well too!

All the best,
