Khoomeï diary

I'm now more confortable with my chest voice, and how to produce overtones.

I got a good idea of what to do in order to sing khoomeï, sygyt and kargyraa.

I will spend more time and practice on these styles before going to borbannadyr, ezengileer and chylandyk.

I'll be happy to share with other singers, i'm also looking for an Igil, a Tsuur Flute or a good Khomus.

My first choice would be an Igil, so hard to find here in France....

But a good Temir Khomus will give…

Beginner's thoughts about Khoomeï and Sygyt

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

Xorekteer Closed

Xorekteer Closed is a small Mp3 to show what happened when i sing with my Xorekteer voice and i close the lips in order to make a O.

Any hints appreciated!

Xorekteer Voice

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.

Xorekteer

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.

New record

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!
