Overtone singing is based on bringing together the second and third resonance frequency of the vocal trakt (also referred to as "formants") on one frequency to enhance the loudness of a single overtone in the vocal sound spectrum. The second formant is controlled by the root of the tongue together with the epiglottis. The third formant is ruled by the space under the tongue, which is bigger than it seems in the video. Overtone singing is a constantly fine adjustment of the two resonance cavities.<br /> <br /> It's not easy to record (and sing) sound in the very noisy environment of a MRT (MRI). The team in Freiburg developed highly specialized equipment for recording and filtering. Nevertheless, the sound is of course not HiFi.<br /> <br /> MRT footage with kind permission and many thanks to:<br /> University Medical Center Freiburg<br /> Medical Physics Dept. of Radiology &amp;<br /> Institut for Musicians’ Medicine<br /> <a href="http://fim.mh-freiburg.de/">http://fim.mh-freiburg.de/</a><br /> Prof. Dr. Bernhard Richter<br /> Prof. Dr. Dr. Jürgen Hennig<br /> Prof. Dr. Matthias Echternach<br /> 2015 Visualization of Vocal Functions tag:www.overtone.cc,2013-06-11:884327:Video:155276 2013-06-11T20:03:52.196Z Wolfgang Saus https://www.overtone.cc/profile/WolfgangSaus <a href="https://www.overtone.cc/video/visualization-of-vocal-functions"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/1940736626?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br><iframe frameborder="0" height="270" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/DZ7s41cr3Z8?feature=oembed&amp;wmode=opaque" width="480"></iframe> <br></br> The video visualizes the relation of overtones, vowels and vocal tract resonances.

It will probably be beneficial to begin the exercise with only two neighbouring elements.<br /> <br /> 4:5:6, - the major triad - is a signpost which is really worth listening for and practising the accentuation of to find orientation in the harmonic universe.
