a common space & database for harmonic overtones
About me: Long time microtonal composer/theorist/programmer. Got interested in overtone singing after hearing the Harmonic Choir in 1983 or so. Long associated with the American Festival of Microtonal Music.
My iOs app Droneo is a great way to hear and explore interval relationships, also online webapps like the Tone Spiral and the Lost Chord.
About me: I am a composer and concert artist specializing in new music for non-western instruments. I have performed around that world, and shared the stage with many prominent artists.

About me: I'm a guitar player and a composer. I have worked as a music teacher, scoring films, and writing and playing music for diferent kinds of shows (including contemporary dancing, circus and experimental music performances).

About me: I am a norwegian composer, who came in contact with overtone singing through Lasse Thoresens "Concrescence" project. During the years 2004-2006 we worked practically with overtone singing in workshops and seminars, and the project concluded in a concert at the 2006 Ultima festival where 6 new compositions were performed by the vocal sextet "Nordic Voices". One of these was my "O magnum mysterium".

About me: Ganpurev Dagvan
(Music composer, musician and throat singing)
He plays the Mongolian traditional musical instruments Ikh-khuur, Morin-khuur, Tobshuur and he also sings undertone throat singing, as well as music composer.
In his traditional robes - Gana in pelzbesetztem garb - seemed the musicians. With the suggestive sounds of the bass violin and Ikh-Morin khuur-khuur, Gana abducted in the Mongolian culture of his homeland. His songs tell of Genghis Khan, the leader of the scattered tribes into a kingdom together by the endless steppes and the pride of the whole people daring riders - the horse.
Genghis Khan's favourite woman was named after their ancestor, the graublauen Wolf, the legend of the Mongols descend after all. With the mythical figure of the wolf, between heaven and earth upside, identified the Far East has always been popular. Boerte is also the first piece of the program devoted to the Gana jump directly to the European cultural boundaries and listening habits asking. The bass violin Ganas swings deep, told entertained. And much deeper including, dark, vibrant, almost dominant booming and the pervasive sounds of Umzad, the undertone throat singing. As a rhythmic spoken or wonderfully melodious, but always in sync with the vibrations of the bass violin, penetrate from the depths of the throat tones the next room.
Especially critical but touching manner and an atmosphere of the dialogue sounds of votes in the “Altai magtaal "and in the “Legend of the Yellow Dog".

And he was considered the best list 4 / 2005 - Prize of the German Record Critics.
