a common space & database for harmonic overtones
About me: I am an overtone singer and multi-instrumentalist. I come from the UK but now live in Slovakia. I have always been fascinated by the spirituality of making sounds and music. I travel extensively both performing and teaching overtone singing, Khoomei Mongolian throat singing, didgeridoo, jaw harp, Tibetan singing bowls, Native American flutes, symphonic gongs and other harmonic instruments from around the world. I have been playing all these beautiful harmonic instruments and overtone singing since around 1995 and have performed in concerts, festivals, exhibitions, radio and TV programs.
I also give educational concerts and talks about these instruments in schools and for various groups. I am an experienced and enthusiastic workshop leader, offering workshops and one-to-one’s on overtone/throat singing and world harmonic instruments.
About me: Shannon Michael Terry has immersed himself in the field of sound and music developing his talents in composition, arrangement, sound design and music production. As a multi-instrumentalist, Shannon’s main instrument is the Array Mbira, a 120 note, five octave instrument that combines the metal plectrum of an African Mbira/Kalimba and the Tetraktys, a mathematical idea and metaphysical symbol that embraces principles of the natural world and Cosmos. In 1999 Shannon created the Open Door Orchestra; a revolving ensemble of players from around the world that utilizes an array of instrumentation and eclectic influences. By using the art of sound, he explores new dimensions of meditation, mystery and imagination. Shannon is the founder of Primal Future Now Music, an independent music label with the sole intention to produce and distribute timeless music and sound art not restrained by its limited connotation.

About me: Sedaa means "voice" in Persian and connects traditional Mongolian music with the Orient which makes an extraordinary and fascinating sound.
Master singer Nasaa Nasanjargal and Naraa Naranbaatar who studied in their Mongolian homeland are very well known through their band Transmongolia. Together with the virtuosic Dulcimer player Ganzorig Davaakhuu and the Iranian Multi- instrumentalist Omid Bahadori they abduct you into one genuinely exotic world between Orient and Mongolian steppe.
The base of their modern composition is formed by natural sounds which are produced with traditional instruments and the use of old age song technologies of their nomadic ancestors with which a person produces several tones at the same time.
Vibrating undertone vocals and the amazing harmonic singing Hömii with the company of the melancholy sounds of the horse head violin Morin Khuur and the pearly sounds of the 120 strings hammered Dulcimer melt into the pulsating oriental drum rhythms to one mystical sound.

About me: Multi-instrumentalist from the Netherlands. My first steps into the world of music were my father's classical records and recorder lessons (some sort of fipple-flute). Later on, as a teen, I widened my musical world with rock, grunge and metal. Bands like Soundgarden and other riff-based bands made me conscious of the power of simple melodies played over repeated rhythmical patterns and their use of "unusual" scales mesmerised me. Later on a friend of mine brought me in contact with folk and traditional music, which seemed a natural development to me.
My aim is to make music that stands in a long tradition, influenced by the almost forgotten music and nature of northwestern Europe.
When composing, I usually try to catch the spirit of the old folktales of my home region, the southeastern parts of the Netherlands, where until the beginning of the 20st century, stories were told about dwarfs and other odd people living on the edge of society - literally, in their heather-sod homes.
