The Overtone Choir

The power and beauty experienced by those listening to overtone singing and harmonic music derives from the music's pure, natural and mathematical foundation. The harmonic series note relationships are found in nature, in the human voice and, strangely, in subatomic particles. Any fundamental note, from any instrument, creates an ascending series of notes (overtones).

The arrangement of these allows for infinite harmonic relationships and frees us from the restrictions of modern tuning.

The Overtone Choir have been creating music as though from a parallel musical universe using overtone voice, gongs, bowls and percussion for the past fifteen years. The natural harmonics re-pattern our way of listening and free the mind, inviting us to journey within, beyond thought and emotion to the deepest of musical spaces. It is for this reason that overtones are naturally associated with meditation, healing and ceremony.

Anyone can learn to sing overtones and it is one of the most powerful skills for mastering our own energies and affecting the energy of our environment.

In this two day workshop we shall find our natural sound, breathing from the diaphragm, creating the mouth shapes for overtone singing, expanded listening and finally, hearing our own overtones clearly. We shall also sing together as an overtone choir and explore the self healing and healing effects of harmonics.
