Profile Information

About me:
composer originally from US since 2000 based in Europe. My work explores the limits of biological sound production potentials, including reinforced harmonic production. In 1999, Professor Ted Levin and I published a paper in Scientific American titled "The Throat Singers of Tuva" - one of the results of a 3-year postdoctoral fellowship with the National Center for Voice and Speech. For more please see my book, The 21st Century Voice, published by Scarecrow Press (http://www.scarecrowpress.com/).
My music deals with complexity and acoustical exploration. Naturally I've won prizes and received recognition. The largest being the Kompositionspreis der Landeshauptstadt Stuttgart 2007, which was just performed in Stuttgart on the Eclat festival - for more information and audio samples, please see: http://www.myspace.com/michaeledwardedgerton

Hi Mike,
I am in Berlin until June 14th. Then I am on the way by train, bike and tent. Good to be offline for a while. Do you have time that we meet us? I live in Charlottenburg near Ku' damm/Adenauerplatz and Stutti.
See you!

Hey Mike,
good to see you here. I'm still based in Halle, commuting everyday to Leipzig. Although still under construction, please have a look at www.fonetik.de, if you're interested what I'm doing there.

dear michael,
to know you in berlin is encouraging. i just want to draw your interest on the contrapuntually, even cromatically possibilities of overtone singing. it's difficult to handle due to the limited scale but it may lead to an unexpected range of expression. it needs to grow up!, means it needs musical complexity. our group stahlquartett is (besides projects with classical and contemporary ensembles) partially focused on overtones. an ingredient for the right context?
best wishes

Overtone Singing Techniques

There are many ways to produce vocal overtones. It depends by the structure of our vocal tract - tongue, cavities, ... - and our sensitiveness. We could explain our technique here.
