Alex Glenfield, Overtone Singing/Throat Singing, “The One and None Epic: III & IV”

Standard
Published on Sep 30, 2012

Presented here are parts 3 and 4 from an epic chant I have entitled “The One and None Epic.” Using a shruti drone box and looper to accompany myself, I blend together several different kinds of throat and overtone singing with a melodic singing style evocative of the North Indian tradition of khyal. The text explores the themes of consciousness, nature, actionless action, action and reaction, and playful conspiracy theories. In some performances, the music is enhanced by a percussionist, which is a combination particularly attractive to yoga classes.
