Two different techniques of throat singing. Both use the Xorekteer voice. I try in the new sample (Khoomeitest and Sygytest) to sing in these two styles. It's not so easy ;-)
Khoomeï test : i sing with the Xorekteer voice and then i make a O with my mouth and lips. I feel that the high harmonics are harder to sing than the low. I use the tongue to select the harmonic, i've notice that it works like the Harmonica technique called Bending.
Sygyt test : well, same thing. I… Continue

The Complete Voice
Before symbolic language developed, there existed a high order of communication. This used gesture, facial expression, posture, and mimicry in movement and sound. Communication was slow but effective. Under these conditions human social behaviour and identity developed. As with much of evolution, behavior led and brain and body development followed.
As time went by and intelligence and the capacity for memory grew. It was found that communication could be… Continue

I've uploaded a new track : Xorekteer-vowels. In this track i try to sing the Xorekteer voice and to use the root of my tongue to sing some vowels. The Xorekteer voice is the Khoomeï fondations so i have to "master it" before going to Khoomeï and Sygyt.

I had a new mp3. I try to sing with the Xorekteer voice.
Xorekteer means singing with the chest voice. This voice is the fondations of the khoomeï and sygyt. You have to work on your xorekteer voice before singing the other styles. You can listen to some Huun Huur Tu songs, sometimes they sing in the Xorekteer voice before going to Khoomeï or Sygyt.

Just a small record to show my progression in khoomei, maybe i'm on the wrong way
Actually i don't try the sygyt or kargyraa and i focus on khoomeï. By listening the cd's i try to imitate what i'm hearing.
Any hints appreciated!
