Overtone Etude

www.phyla.info

A short piece with overtone singing and guitar. I composed this after looking at chordal structures in the overtone scale and demonstrating how to sing these as overtone arpeggios. Especially the augmented chordal structures are inspired by that, I did not use these for…

Fek Ber - "Polyrhythmische Kehlkomposition"

https://soundcloud.com/parahybrid/fek-ber

(english below)

So, auf Soundcloud gibt´s eine Version meiner Komposition Fek Ber zu, die zur "Falsche Afrikanisch Erinnerungen"-Werkgruppe gehört, also geht es auch hier um die Verbindung von west-afrikanisch und Pygmäen-inspierierter Rythmik mit Obertongesang und Kehlgesang. Um diese Mischung aus "immer das Gleiche/immer etwas anders" zu erzeugen, habe ich zunächst alle Phrasen…

Some thoughts on music aesthetics and overtone singing

This is a text I wrote in the aftermath of the alumni meeting of Wolfgang Saus intensive overtone workshop participants; not a sophisticated theory but just some thoughts scrambled together to stimulate a conversation. Originally written in german and only for the alumni group, this is a translation I did due to interest from non-german-speakers. I omitted some passages of the german version and surely made mistakes.

Some aesthetic considerations related to overtone singing

Einige musikästhetische Überlegungen in Bezug zum Obertongesang

Hier ein Text den ich im Nachklang zum Alumni-Treffen von Wolfgang Saus Obertonschülern geschrieben habe; eher einige Gedanken zur Anregung eines Gesprächs und keine ausgefeilte Positionierung:

Einige musikästhetische Überlegungen in Bezug zum Obertongesang

Obertöne zu hören bedeutet eine Sensibilisierung der Wahrnehmung; wo vorher ein Ganzes, eine einzige geschlossene Gestalt war - der Ton - entdeckt man als Obertonanfänger nach einer Weile des Hinhörens eine Fülle von…

Proben mit Blotch

Ein bisschen neuer kehliger Gesang am Anfang eines alten Stückes von Blotch.

Kolja Simon hat auf der CD-Fassung schöne expressive Sachen mit seiner Stimme beigesteuert. Ich hab eine Weile gebraucht um meinerseits was zu finden und dieses monotone Brummen gefällt mir ganz gut...schulterklopf :)

Macht großen Spaß mit unserem Rhythmus-Ehepaar Dennis & Dora,…

Rehearsing with ableton live´s looper-tool





I want to use the looper tool of ableton live on stage, so I need some practice and that is why you see me rehearsing 'Eka' (Ethno Kitsch Atmo) of the 'Fake african memories here. I am not satisfied with my ways of routing different channels to the looper, I hope I can find out a better way. The throat singing is my style of blending asian and african inspiration.… Continue

New Para Hybrid video: Void



This is a video to accompany my composition 'Void' one of my 'Fake african memories'. Thanks to the Nikon D-7000 the quality is much better than before. It was recorded at a rehearsal of the Kargyraa Krew in June, in the editing I finally used only the images of me, because I´m the only singer on that track (two short loops).



Neither video nor the sound are… Continue

Mascara Video Testversion



Hier ein Testvideo zu meiner Komposition Mascara. Ich habe einfach meine Basteleien drauflosgefilmt und es dann zur Musik geschnitten. In der Mitte sind einige Ansichten aus dem bisherigen Entstehungsprozess. In der fertigen Fassung wird es wohl eine Mischung aus Einstellungen mit der Papierfigur und von mir im Kostüm geben.



Im Gegensatz zum Video ist die Musik schon so, wie sie gedacht ist - wobei, ich mag den Gedanken des offenen, unabgeschlossenen Werkes… Continue

Kalimba! Spryh and Mascara with Lothar Berger

Lothar Berger and me trying out combinations of guitar, kalimba and 2 voices on the patterns of Spryh. Lothar is a teacher of the ta-ke-ti-na method and overtone singer. Unlike me, he often changes the fundamental note while singing overtones. The pattern he sings here reminds me of the xhosa women´s overtone singing.











A cozy evening version of Mascara - it´s full of mistakes, I am messing up chords, the intonation is sloppy but still it conveys… Continue

Proto Hybrid & Kargyraa Krew - Robodonien 2010







The video shows impressions of Robodonien 2009 where we played with my band blotch - you hear my voice from our concert. The band is shown only briefly but you can watch the dancer who supported our sounds.



2010 Robodonien will be the place for the first gig of the project presented in this blog:

Kargyraa Krew - Afrodonia Jam



Three jams based on parts of my Fake African Memories compositions Gogokokoroko, Spryh and Mascara - on stage at the Afrodonia Festival in Cologne.



The Kargyraa Krew: Kolja Simon, Martin Pässler & me, cajon played by Peter Halves. While the polyphonic subtleties I have in mind for the choir versions of my songs will take more time to be realized on stage, these singers instantly add power and liveliness with their performance which is… Continue

A rehearsal of my composition Gogokokoroko



A rehearsal of my composition Gogokokoroko, the looper of Ableton live substitutes the other singers. It´s not as lively but you get an impression of the sound. I´m looking forward to doing this with three singers and drums and percussion next week.…

Mascara with two Kargyraa voices

This is the first step to building a "Kargyraa Krew" to sing the compositions of my "Fake African Memories". Martin Pässler is doing a fascinatingly deep bass figure while I am singing two melody parts, which will be sung simultaniously as soon as we are three singers - Kolja Simon will join us soon.

Anyone who is interested in collaborating on this project, please contact… Continue
