Video

Ajoutée le 10 mars 2013
This is a video version of the quickstart tutorial for Overtone Analyzer that can be found at http://www.sygyt.com/en/quickstart. The video explains the basic features of the software and how to use them to record and visualize your voice or instrument.

In particular, I’m showing you to set up your microphone, how to make a recording, how to play it back and listen to it, how to visualize the fundamental pitch, the spectrum, and the spectrogram, how to apply frequency filters to listen to individual overtones, and how to use the overtone sliders.

Workshop intensivo di canto armonico
con Tran Quang Hai [2-7 Settembre 2014]

Il canto armonico, detto anche canto difonico, diplofonico e triplofonico, ed in inglese overtone singing, è una tecnica nella quale il cantante sfrutta le risonanze che si creano nel tratto vocale (tra le corde vocali e la bocca) per far risaltare gli armonici presenti nella voce. In questo modo una singola voce può produrre simultaneamente due o più suoni distinti.
Khoomei o il canto di gola è il nome usato in Tuva e in Mongolia per descrivere diversi stili di canto e tecniche in cui un solo cantante produce contemporaneamente due (o più) toni distinti; il più basso è il tono fondamentale della voce e suona come un ronzio costante simile al timbro della cornamusa scozzese, il secondo corrisponde ad una delle parziali armoniche ed è come un fischio che risuona a tonalità molto elevate.
Durante il workshop, Tran Quang Hai insegnerà le 2 tecniche di base del canto armonico:
  • Tecnica di una cavità orale con il registro basso degli armonici;
  • Tecnica di due cavità della bocca con una maggiore serie di sfumature.
  • Esercizi di improvvisazione e creazione collettiva
  • Esercizi pe ridurre il suono fondamentale
  • Impare ad ascoltare il propio tono al fine di creare piccole melodie
Tran Quang Hai
Raffinato interprete delle tradizioni musicali dell’Estremo Oriente, maestro di artisti comeDemetrio Stratos, Tran Quang Hai è considerato il più grande specialista del mondo di canto difonico (overtones), tecnica vocale di origine sciamanica che permette l’emissione simultanea di due note, diffusa in Mongolia, in Siberia e in Sudafrica.
Tran Quang Hai proviene da una famiglia di cinque generazioni di musicisti.

Khoomei or throat singing is the name used in Tuva and Mongolia to describe a large family of singing styles and techniques in which a single vocalist simultaneously produces two (or more) distinct tones. The lower one is the usual fundamental tone of the voice and sounds as a sustained drone or a Scottish bagpipe sound. The second corresponds to one of the harmonic partials and is like a resonating whistle in a high, or very high register. During the workshop, Tran Quang Hai will teach the 2 basic techniques of overtone singing:

  • Technique of one mouth cavity with lower series of overtones;
  • Technique of two mouth cavities with higher series of overtones.
  • Exercices for improvisation and collective creation.
  • Exercices for the control of each overtone
  • Improvement of overtones by learning how to reduce the fundamental sound
  • Learning of how to listen to own overtones in order to create small melodies

Overtones are the basic building block of sound. Come and learn how to construct sounds at http://www.synthschool.com

This video is about additive synthesis, and how sounds can be constructed by pure sine waves. If you are a musician or sound engineer, this video is a must for you!

On our site there is also a download for the harmonic explorer, which is the device used to create this video. so you can explore for yourself!

Gilbert Rouget, très grand ethnomusicologue, est une figure du XXe siècle. Il fut l’ami des plus grands comme Claude Lévi-Strauss, Michel Leiris, Pierre Verger. Entré au Musée de l’Homme en 1942 comme assistant d’André Schaeffner, chef du département d’ethnologie musicale, il lui succède comme chef du département d’ethnomusicologie. G. Rouget est un découvreur dans le domaine du son. Il crée un studio d’enregistrement au Musée de l’Homme dès 1947 et des éditions de disques appelées par la suite « Collections CNRS/Musée de l’Homme ». Avec Eric de Dampierre il co-fonde les « Editions des Classiques Africains » et avec Jean Rouch le « Laboratoire audio-visuel de l’Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes ».

Dès 1968 il crée et met en place au Département d’ethnomusicologie du Musée de l’Homme une formation de recherche du CNRS, nouvelle dans ses principes, comprenant entre autres un laboratoire d’analyse et de transcription automatique du son, géré par un ingénieur. Ses principales missions en Afrique ont été aux Moyen-Congo et Gabon en 1946 où la musique des Pygmées est une véritable révélation pour lui, au Bénin entre 1952 et 1987 où il étudie la musique de Cour du Royaume de Porto-Novo, mais aussi au Nigéria, Sénégal, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali… où il recueille les pratiques musicales traditionnelles des populations visitées.

Sa documentation se compose actuellement de 350 CD. Il a également écrit plusieurs livres enrichis de photos sur ces musiques. Sa dernière publication « Afrique musiquante » sera présentée en avant première au public
