<hr/>Stuart Hinds ist als Komponist, Sänger, Dozent und Chorleiter aktiv. Die meisten seiner Kompositionen sind vor allem für virtuose Obertonsängerinnen und –sänger geschrieben. Darunter sind Werke für Solo-Stimme, instrumentale Stücke und Kompositionen für Sprach-und Chormusik. <br/> <br/>Stuart Hinds gibt Konzerte, Unterricht und Workshops in den USA und Kanada, Deutschland, Belgien, Österreich und in Tschechien. Seine musikalischen Werke sind in Artikeln der „Zeitschrift für Gesang“ und dem „Chormusik Journal“ erschienen. Im Friedrich Hofmeister Musikverlag sind neuerdings Chorwerke von Stuart Hinds veröffentlicht worden. Stuart Hinds promovierte an der Universität in Michigan zum „Doktor of Musical Arts in Komposition“.<br/> Stuart Hinds ist einzigartig unter den Obertonsängern. Er hat diesen Gesang mit Virtuosität zu einer neuen Kunstfertigkeit geführt. Er erlangt ein bisher selten erreichtes Level musikalischen Ausdrucks, wenn er zeitgleich über den traditionellen Bordunklang stimmlich zwei unterschiedliche musikalischen Linien entwickelt. Seine Kompositionen sprengen dabei die Grenzen des üblichen Obertongesangs und kreieren ein völlig neues Genre der Musik, die jeden Musikstil umfassen. <br/> <br/> Stuart Hinds Werk spiegelt zum einen seine klassische Ausbildung wieder, mit musikalischen Einflüssen unterschiedlichster Kulturen – sein einzigartiger Stil begeistert ein weites Spektrum von Zuhörern. So schrieb ein schwedischer Musikkritiker; dass „Hinds ein wahrer Meister der Obertongesangstechnik ist“ und kommentierte: „Ich habe bisher noch nie so etwas gehört. Seine Musik zeigt eine wahre und unverfälschte Kunstfertigkeit. Ich schätze mich glücklich, dass ich auf seine Musik gestoßen bin, welche mir nicht nur musikalisch Freude bereit, sondern mich zudem spirituell erhebt.“ <br/><br/>

About me: (or what i am looking for in music)
to work with iron, sometimes in a forge, otherwise as a musician and composer
the difference between click, tock and bing (i am attracted by slowness, or call it laziness, that causes a microscopical view (not only) on sounds and noises)
the visible/tactile aspect of distinct sounds or the audible aspect of shape and material (means also that strange theater of abstract numbers called music and how it touches our imagination, senses or moods, how it creates visible forms)
the mathematical view on music or the musical view on numbers (helps me to find the "scapes", sounds, rhythms and harmonies wich i desire to listen)
each place and each point in time has anything distinctive, each landscape or situation is represented by remarkable sounds, often they reveal a surprising musical quality (how to approach such moments?)
our audible environment contains information about structure, nature, culture (how to explore and integrate this in musical concepts?)
the full range of different sounds we are able to produce with our voice(s)
(we are living in an age/place of abundance) esp. the hidden treasure in polyphonic or contrapuntal overtone singing

In the autumn 99 Spanish guitar and Flamenco studies in Sevilla, Andalusia, Spain, supported by "Statens Kunstfond" (the State Art-fondation of Denmark) developed his art.

About me: Starting to sing as a child, I have been touched by many musical influences all around the world. At the age of 10 I started to sing as solo alto voice in choir for classical church music. Then made band experiences as backing vocalsist with the range of ongoing western styles in the middle seventies.
Living with Beduins in the Sinai desert I was for the first time in touch with oriental rhytms and vocals. Immedialtey getting thrilled. During three years i stayed in India, Ihad the chance to study mantra singing and it´s healing dynamics at the temples of Pushkar.
Beeing thought in schamanic healing, I learned how voice is touching and transforming different human layers.
At the same time I started to work in several projects with Jazz, improvised music and world music. I was educated in trance dance and trance music. 1990 I started throat singing and overtone singing. I developed my voice, understanding it´s limitations, as connected with psychic barriers which I started to undo.
Beside my work as a singer, lyric writer and composer, I did art works with precious stones at power spots in nature and furniture to recover bodies and spirit. While doing for one Year precious stone covered seats in a cave in Mariposa, Tenerife, I could work with healing sounds on nature.
During the last years I have been involved in noumeros muscal projekts with other musicans and in studios. I am doing performances with mantra singing, sound journeys, overtones and a capella songs.
In my classes and work shops I am offering mantra singing, voice liberation, singing technique, and healing tunes.
About me: Anthar Kharana, is a composer and multi-instrumentalist born in a small town called Ocana in the North of Colombia and years later he moved to Bogota. He grew up in a musical family and his first link with music was at the age of nine. He has been involved in many musical projects and bands, offering him a wide vision about different ways of putting together sounds and intentions, feelings and thoughts. Starting with rough punk in his early years as a result of the oppressive political situation in Colombia, to then begin training himself as a counter-tenor (highest male voice’s pitch in opera) afterwards, giving him the ability to increase his voice range and to reach high pitches that sounds like female voice.
After years of practice he developed the complex technique of Throat Singing, including Khoomii from Mongolia also known as Polyphonic Voice, and other overtone styles incluiding western harmonics which made an important step whilst working with Vibrational Sound Healing. As part of that process, together with his passion for different ancient cultures, he started to investigate about the power of sound and how it generates changes in many different ways and levels of conciousness.
Anthar is also an educator and has been touring the UK facilitating Traditional Colombian drumming and Tribal Voice workshops in different festivals and schools. He teaches and shares the roots of Colombian traditions and rhythms of the Indigenous people who were living (and still) on the Carribbean Coast of Colombia and got mixed with African slaves brought with the Spanish colony at the end of the 16th century.
