Overtone singing and throat singing styles in the world

Overtone singing as a stylistic term encompasses all vocal techniques in which overtones are specifically emphasized and play an independent musical role.

The most famous style beside the Western overtone singing is the Central Asian throat singing from Tuva and Mongolia. But there are other spectacular forms of overtone and throat singing in other parts of the world, e. g. in Africa, Oceania and even in Europe, which I would like to draw your attention to here.

Inhalt

Of course there is no singing without harmonics, because every singing tone contains harmonics. I classify it as overtone singing when the musician’s intention is to provide overtones with their own musical role.

It is important to me to define this from the perspective of the singer, because not everyone perceives the overtones without practice. Transitions from speech to targeted overtones can be fluid (hearing test). According to a study by the University of Heidelberg people hear the overtones very differently, so that even trained musicians do not always immediately recognize the overtones in the voice. Overtone listening is trainable.

Classification by Cultures

Classification by Sound Character

Overtone melodies are the most noticeable, but not the only form of overtone singing. Overtones can be used musically without creating melodies: for tone effects, intonation, resonance and as a basis for scales. Examples are Tibetan monk songs, Barbershop or the Sardinian canto a tenore. The weaker the overtones are compared to the overall sound, the more difficult it is to assign them to overtone singing.

Overtone Melodies

Overtone Sound Scapes

Widespread Misconceptions

For the sake of completeness, I would like to mention singing styles that are erroneously referred to as overtone singing. These are singing techniques called throat singing. Throat singing is used in music ethnological terms, especially in older literature, for throaty, rough songs and singing with narrowing of the larynx and has nothing to do with overtone singing. Only since the 1990s throat singing (as a translation of the Tuvan word khöömej) has become synonymous with Central Asian overtone singing. You have to be careful what kind of throat singing is meant, especially when translating from English. When reading recent literature, one should pay attention to whether the author has carefully researched.

Increasing numbers of people are finding themselves drawn to the ethereal and intriguing sounds that have travelled into Europe and America, primarily from Mongolia and Tuva in the former Soviet Union.

Hello – my name is Jonny Cope but everyone calls me ‘The Didgeridoo Man’.

I have been playing didgeridoo professionally for over twenty years, am the author of a best-selling range of tuition materials and have taught thousands of people, young and old, to play the didgeridoo. My tuition method has been published as a book since 1999, a cassette (if anyone remembers those!), a CD, and a DVD in 2007. These have been distributed the world over and reached and helped tens of thousand of people.

I also use and teach a variety of other instruments and techniques: Overtone singing, Throat singing (also known as Khoomei), the Jews Harp, ethnic winds and flutes, small percussion, etc.

I have published book & CD tuition methods on Khoomei / overtone singing and playing the Jews Harp.

Students taking my course may contact me via the forum on each course with questions or comments and I’ll get back to you as quickly as I can.

Having studied with several well-known international players and Australian Aboriginal Elders, I have been teaching all levels of this increasingly popular instrument for the past fifteen years via international workshops, 1-2-1 lessons and even Skype webcam.

I have given performances and presented workshops at music festivals and events, corporate team building days, charity balls, weddings and family fun days throughout Europe. I also regularly teach in UK schools via my educational program.

My clients include many blue-chip companies, schools, education authorities and charities, not to mention a few famous folks (no I can’t drop any names!).

My Youtube channel has had nearly 3 million views with 3 thousand subscribers.

Basically I’ve taught so many people with my methods that I’m pretty darn confident that I can help YOU too!

So confident that I’m offering a 30 day money-back gaurentee with Udemy.

Take the course and if you feel it is genuinely not helping then you can easily just stop and get a full refund.

So go ahead and dive into a course that will take you on a wonderful journey of discovery with this amazing and under-rated instrument and wow your friends with your amazing new skills!

Best wishes,

Jonny Cope.

Brilliantly clear instruction. I just wish I could tell whether I’m actually hearing the harmonics or I just want to hear them so badly I’m imagining them! ?

This is my second musical course with Jonny Cope and again, it is very complete, well explained and full of useful details. In my opinion, there is no better ”Throat Singing” course so far, I learnt a lot. I would have liked some more Advanced exercices for the different styles. Maybe in the future, who knows! Best wishes

Wonderful! Clear instructions, perfect for a beginner. Having trained with Jonny for about a month I purchased another (more expensive) Udemy throat singing course. It was interesting, but I doubt I would have had any chance learning the basics with it. Jonny’s teaching skills will help you succeed learning this exciting skill if you are motivated and willing to practice. This one is totally worth it’s cost. Highly recommended!

Hey thanks Karita and glad you enjoyed the course.TCTeresa CoderchRating: 4.5 out of 5a year ago

Jonny provides very clear, step-by-step, explanations and exercises, with the necessary cautions. Learning any practical skills involves doubts or a sense of ”not quite getting it”, but I found that by following the instructions and keeping the practice I/my body learned ways to access more fitting positions for producing and amplifying the sound.

I would definitely recommend this course to someone willing to learn these skills (I cannot really speak for throat singing and Sygyt, though, since I’ve focused only on ”Western style” overtone singing).

I really love this course. I cannot believe that I can actually hear the overtones. Jonny is a great teacher and I would take another class from him in the future. I can’t wait to get better and master the Khoomei method and beyond. I practice every day and especially like to practice when I am driving since the windsheild gives me feed back – the hot tub is not bad either. Thanks Jonny for teaching this.

Really feels like a great course!

Showing so many different aspects of overtone singing. I would like to suggest to include some good excamples of music based on the lessons we are in. That might enhance and inpirate

Always liked to play with my voice and always liked Tuvan music. Both overtone singing and throat singing are perfectly described. Made some exercises with great effort. Now I’m going through the whole course to have an idea of what is coming. Afterwards long long training in single steps will follow. Great and funny lessons. Thank you

5/5 I would suggest this course to anyone interested in overtone or throat singing.

I do not understand English very well. Overall, I understand. Without unnecessary speech. I climb up. Well thank you.

Was this review helpful?TTqaRating: 3.5 out of 53 years ago

I do like the course, the explaination make sense and I could follow by listening, I actually had more problems when I had the subtitles activated since they can not cope with the accent. The material is something for weeks to work. I have only watch till the beginning of section 6 since after that one really need to master the stuff from the other section.

One thing which is in my own opinion could be add are drawing some sketch about the tongue in each exercise, since it may make it easier to understand with pictures than with hand movements.

Since one not teach 1 on 1 the teacher can not see and hear what the student is making or not making.

Else it was enjoyable to follow till now. It is also nice that there are updates which I think is generous.

“Es kommt ein Schiff, geladen” (“A ship is coming laden”) – Overtone Singing

454 viewsNov 28, 202112DislikeShareSaveOvertone Singing – Wolfgang Saus 1.38K subscribers “Es kommt ein Schiff, geladen” (“A ship is coming laden”) is one of the oldest Advent hymns in the German language. It was written before 1450.The oldest record of the melody is found in the Andernacher Gesangsbuch, Cologne 1608. A rhythmic rarity in old hymns is the change from a 6/4 to a 4/4 meter in the middle of the song. The Dorian part of the first part of the song ends on the minor third, while the second part turns to Lydian from the new root and returns to the Dorian finalis at the end. Keys with minor thirds make fundamental changes unavoidable in overtone singing, because the natural harmonic series is tuned to major.

The music is arranged by Anna-Maria Hefele, Tomek Kolczynski and Giuseppe Lomeo with their individual artistic approach and character and makes extensive use of the technical possibilities of our century. The program blends the original music by Hildegard von Bingen with the trio’s own original compositions, as well as free improvisations, adopting a broad spectrum of musical components. All aspects, from field recordings and concrete music to an ample range of electronic and acoustic instruments, contribute to shape the singular quality of the project. DE: In “Canticles of Now” verschmelzen Hildegard von Bingens Werke unter Einsatz der technischen Möglichkeiten des 21. Jahrhunderts mit Eigenkompositionen und freien Improvisationen von Anna-Maria Hefele, Tomek Kolczynski und Giuseppe Lomeo. Nebst der menschlichen Stimme und akustischer Instrumente wie Gitarre und Nyckelharpa, fügen sich auch Tomek Kolczynskis electronics sowie Elemente der musique concrète in der breiten Palette der Klangfarben zu einem auditiven Gesamterlebnis zusammen. Eine Brücke zur Transzendenz des “Hier und Jetzt” entfaltet sich durch Anna-Maria Hefeles Obertongesang, welcher den Zuhörer in die Magie himmlischer Sphären führt. “Canticles of Now” bezieht seine Inspiration aus dem reichhaltigen musikalischen Schatz der Kompositionen von Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179). Hildegard war eine deutsche Mystikerin und Universalgelehrte des Mittelalters und begann nach ihrem vierzigsten Lebensjahr, ihre Visionen niederzuschreiben und diese anschließend zu vertonen. Ihre Werke fasste sie unter dem Titel “Symphonie der Harmonie der himmlischen Offenbarungen” zusammen, wobei der Begriff “Symphonia” in Hildegards Denken weit gefasst ist: es geht um die Harmonie von Instrumenten und Stimmen, um die himmlische Harmonie und die innere Harmonie des Menschen als Ausdruck der symphonischen menschlichen Seele. IT: Canticles of Now” trae ispirazione da alcune delle composizioni di Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179), mistica e polimate tedesca, il cui corpus musicale rappresenta un gioiello e una fonte continua di ispirazione per musicisti e ascoltatori. La musica è arrangiata da Anna-Maria Hefele, Tomek Kolczynski e Giuseppe Lomeo con il loro approccio e carattere artistico individuale e fa ampio uso delle possibilità tecniche del nostro secolo. Il programma fonde la musica originale di Hildegard von Bingen con composizioni ed improvvisazioni originali del trio, adottando un ampio ed eterogeneo spettro di componenti musicali. Tutti gli aspetti, dai field recordings alla musica concreta ed ad una ampia gamma di strumenti elettronici e acustici, contribuiscono a dare forma alla singolare qualità del progetto. O Wisdom’s energy! Whirling, you encircle and everything embrace in the single way of life. Three wings you have: one soars above into the heights, one from the earth exudes, and all about now flies the third. Praise be to you, as is your due, O Wisdom. Hildegard was born in 1098 is the small town of Bermersheim in the diocese of Mainz. She was the tenth child of Hildebert, a lesser noble in service to the count of Sponheim, and his wife, Mechtild. When Hildegard was 8 years old, she was enclosed with Jutta von Sponheim as an anchoress at the Benedictine monastery of Disibodenberg. As magistra, Jutta taught Hildegard to read Latin and sing from the Psalter. Hildegard took her vows as a Benedictine nun sometime around 1112. In the next 25 years, more women joined their community. When Jutta died in 1136, Hildegard was elected magistra. In 1141, Hildegard began having her first serious visions which God commanded her to write down. This work is known as Scivias (Know the Ways). According to Hildegard’s Uita, Pope Eugenius III endorsed her visions at the Synod of Trier 1147/48. In 1150, Hildegard founded her own convent at Rupertsberg followed by a second convent at Eibingen in 1163. It is during this time that Hildegard produced the majority of her works including her correspondence and preaching tours. Hildegard died on 17 of September 1179.

It is based on the ancient Lambdoma Matrix which is is attributed to the philosopher Pythagoras (500 bc). ⇊⇊⇊ more info: ⇊⇊⇊ Here you can purchase a full 27 – minutes performance in video and audio for download: https://overtone.academy/product/lamb… PayPal donations: https://www.paypal.com/donate/?hosted… Thanks for your support! Josef Baiers Lambdoma is made out of a combination of four Lambdoma Matrixes that are arranged together as rectangle, forming a dome that can be entered by the performer as well as by the listener. It consists out of 256 tubes that are up to 3 meters long and are perfectly tuned in pure harmonic overtone – and undertone series. The music & video was recorded live in: Studienkirche St. Josef in Burghausen, Germany, 2021. For me, Anna-Maria Hefele, it was an incredible and very touching experience to work with LAMBDOMA. My ongoing overtone singing practice (since 2005) allowed me to find precise and intuitive orientation within the tonal Lambdoma structure, knowing exactly where to expect which note in the system and how they are related to each other. This enabled me to connect deeply in a very joyful way with this wonderful instrument! music, audio recording & mix: Anna-Maria Hefele https://anna-maria-hefele.com/ video: @Thomas Radlwimmerhttps://thomas.radlwimmer.at/ LAMBDOMA built by Josef Baier: http://www.josef-baier.at/ ▬ Social Media & Web ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ►YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/annamariahefele ►Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/amoberton ►Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/annamariahe… ►Web Artist: https://anna-maria-hefele.com/ ►Web Overtone.Academy: https://overtone.academy/ ►Shop: https://overtone.academy/shop ►Dates for learning overtone singing: https://overtone.academy/dates-sign-up
