collaborating online- listen to 'Waves' with Kiva Simova

The site admin suggested I post this here, as I have in the Facebook group 'Overtone Singers Unite'. BTW, if you haven't already become a member of that group, I recommend it.

The subject of this blog is collaboration online. With overtones of course. The site I use is kompoz.com

You can find almost anything here in terms of style. There are some quite accomplished producers, engineers, composers, etc. here, so don't worry about the quality. Of course, there are some wash outs, but…

Overtone Choir music

There is not a lot of notated overtone music out there, particularly for choirs. And even less so when it comes to polyphonic singing.



In the earliest days of the appearance of composed western overtone music, there was Folke Rabe and Stockhausen.



Later on, Sarah Hopkins (Australia) created 'Past Life Melodies', which became internationally known and performed by many choirs around the world. Many such choirs were not overtone choirs, per se, but her piece did not require… Continue

Khoomei Perspective from Tuva 1993

 

Here is an interesting article by Oorzhak Khunashtaar-ool from 1993 about his lifelong khoomei singing, and how it must be properly taught to the young to preserve correct technique and tradition.

 

Even back in 1993, he laments the introduction of pop music influences into khoomei.

 

Also, note the suggestion that a young female group should form, the daughters of Tuva, which came true with 'Tuva Kyzy'.

yodeling and overtones

I'm currently creating some very specific notated exercises for combining yodeling with overtones (SATB), using 2 completely different approaches.

The best I've heard in this area is Christian Zehnder, who has cleverly woven his national Swiss tradition into it. I'd like to open some discussion about this topic- any experience with overtone yodeling or fresh new ideas?



Anyway, in a yodel surfing expedition, found this completely amazing blog site 'Yodel Heaven', which has a huge… Continue

Contemporary overtone choir music & telematic real-time internet concert for peace (Nov 20)

As a composer of overtone choir music, I am looking for this type of choir with at least a few capable polyphonic singers who understand the numbered notation system. I have several pieces available that do not fall into the category of ethereal, new age or meditative music. There are a lot of quick paced rhythmic passages in many cases.

For some of these, even if there are no overtone singers in the choir, the overtone parts may be replicated by having the harmonics sung in regular… Continue

Overtone arrangements offered

I am offering my services creating vocal overtone arrangements for your songs (or somebody else's!). The notation is written both with the upper melody in standard notation and with the numbered harmonics above the bass line. The arrangement will be as close as possible to the original, given the restrictions of the harmonic series. (Certain small alternatives for fundamental/bass pitches may be required). It is singable by an experienced polyphonic overtone singer. If desired, a demo mp3 may… Continue
