TSAI Chen-Gia : False vocal fold surface waves during Sygyt singing: a theoretical study

False vocal fold surface waves during Sygyt singing: a theoretical study



Chen-Gia Tsai



1. Introduction



Overtone singing is a vocal technique found in Central Asian cultures such as Tuva and Mongolia, by which one singer produces a high pitch of nF0 along with a low drone pitch of F0 (F0 is the fundamental frequency, n = 6, 7, ...13 in typical performances). The voice of overtone singing is characterized by a sharp formant centered at nF0.…

TSAI Chen-Gia: Physical Modeling of the vocal tract of a Sygyt singer

Physical Modeling of the vocal tract of a Sygyt singer



Chen-Gia Tsai




Source theory v.s. Resonance theory



Two types of overtone-singing should be distinguished: Sygyt and Kargyraa. In Sygyt performances, the rising tongue divides the vocal tract into two cavities, which are connected by a narrow channel, whereas the tongue does not rise in Kargyraa performances.



Up until now, two major theories have been proposed on the production of the… Continue

TSAI Chen-Gia : Perception of Overtone Singing

Perception of Overtone Singing



Chen-Gia Tsai



Pitch strength



Voices of overtone-singing differ from normal voices in having a sharp formant Fk (k denotes Kh??mei), which elicits the melody pitch fk = nf0. For normal voices, the bandwidths of formants are always so large that the formants merely contribute to the perception of timbre. For overtone-singing voices, the sharp formant Fk can contribute to the perception of pitch.



A pitch…

Nathalie Henrich, John Smith and Joe Wolfe: Harmonic singing (or overtone singing) vs normal singing

Harmonic singing (or overtone singing) vs normal singing



Harmonic singing shares techniques with diphonic singing, overtone singing, xoomi singing, sygyt singing, throat singing, Tuva singing etc. We explain some of the acoustics of this style of singing in terms of the measured acoustical response of the vocal tract. In this technique, the singer emphasises one high harmonic of the voice to such an extent that it is heard separately from the low pitched note being sung. Different… Continue

Michael EMORY : Khoomei - How To's And Why's

Khoomei - How To's And Why's







During the past year I have learned techniques of some throat-singing styles as practiced in Central Asia. With guidance from Maj. P.C. (Ret.), and access to his collection of vocal recordings from that part of the world, I have experienced fair success in executing the forms described below. The following is intended to offer instruction to anyone with interest and patience enough to learn a way to refine self-generated sound. Previous voice… Continue

Steve SKLAR: Types of Throat Singing with Tips /Tuvan Throat-Singing

Tuvan throat-singing, or Khoomei, is the area with which I have the most extensive experience. While I am familiar with other types of harmonic singing and chant, the main focus of this page will be Tuvan. You can find some information/links about other regions below.



All styles of Tuvan Khoomei involve controlled tension in and manipulation of the diaphragm, throat, and mouth. However, there are great differences between the different types of throat-singing; for example, some… Continue

BATZENGEL: Xöömij from Mongolia

Xöömij



There is a special vocal technique which has developed in Mongolia called xöömij (throat). It is sometimes referred to as the « jaw’s harp voice » and it is done by men only. It is a unique in that one singer produces two « voices » simultaneously. One of them is a prolonged droning of a fundamental vocal tone above which another melodic line with a whistle like quality is produced in a high register. By making the vocal chords tense and pressing the air through them… Continue

Campo di azione del canto difonico




Dal punto di vista del campo d’azione, il canto difonico è equivalente al canto normale, fatta eccezione per ciò che concerne l’ambitus.

Il tempo di esecuzione è evidentemente in funzione della gabbia ttoracica del cantante, dunque della respirazione,… Continue

Facciamo tutti del canto difonico senza saperlo ! Basta aprire la bocca ed emettere un suono di gola. Quest’ultimo è composto da un suono di base continuo invariante, tenuto alla stessa altezza, e da altri suoni più acuti, gli armonici. Il fatto è che non sappiamo ascoltare ! E, di…
