Dear OMN community,
I'm happy to announce that my book "On the Physiology of Voice Production in South-Siberian Throat Singing – Analysis of Acoustic and Electrophysiological Evidences" is out now.

It took me really a long while . I actually started working on it in 2000 as my PhD project. Then of course - as many of you perhaps also know - there came other jobs, duties, projects. And finally I had to rush since in order to get a particular job I needed to finish and submit. This was in May 2005. And then after defense and other projects I finally thought about turning it into a real book, rather than publishing online. The formating along the way took me almost another year. Now it's done. I'm happy about this fact but not too much about the book itself. There are still a lot of things remaining which should have gone into it.

So please don't be too disappointed.

Many thanks also to Wolfgang: he pointed out to me that the book is also available at amazon.de. But you could also order it via the publisher Frank&Timme.

Inspite of your modesty about your book I thoroughly recommend it as the current state of the art! Sven, don't be shy, it's the best you find around.
(Thanks again for your advise with the IPA signs, I will send the article soon... busy with Bach's "St. Matthew Passion" right now)

It is fine that your publisher gives a short summary for your new book:

»This book presents the first field-work based phonetic study focussing such extraordinary phonatory outcomes as occur in the context of South-Siberian throat singing. In throat singing specific voice production types serve as source, which are subject to various ways of formant shaping, merging, adjustment, and reinforcement, all of which function to enhance individual harmonics. Two main types are proposed for voice production in South-Siberian throat singing: a voice production by means of the vocal folds featuring a constriction of the aryepiglottic sphincter, and a voice production with involvement of the ventricular folds. Furthermore a simple schematic model for the articulation types in throat singing is suggested. One of the basic questions throughout this study is whether the phenomenon of throat singing shows fairly clear regional variants in different parts of southern or whether the variation is chiefly a matter of individual styles.« and that you can download the PDF with the Contents of your book

Thanks a lot for your announcement! Jens

Hi Sven,

I'd like to order a copy from wherever you get the most $$. Where is that? Also, I can't recall, but do you throat-sing?
