Overtone Singing

On the 12th January 2018, Svaram Campus gave a presentation at the Tibetan Pavillion on the mathematics of harmonic science and the connections with nature. Then they gave a demonstration of overtone singing with some accompaniment, which is what we are sharing here. It was a beautiful vibration and they said that there will be a possibility of a workshop this coming week where we can learn this healing technique, overtone singing.

Happiness Is

Overtone singing – also known as overtone chanting, harmonic singing or throat singing – is a type of singing in which the singer manipulates the resonances (or formants) created as air travels from the lungs, past the vocal folds, and out of the lips to produce a melody.
Each note is like a rainbow of sound. When you shoot a light beam through a prism, you get a rainbow. You think of a rainbow of sounds when you sing one note. If you can use your throat as a prism, you can expose the rainbow – through positioning the throat in a certain physical way, which will reveal the harmonic series note by note
Tibetan Buddhist chanting is a subgenre of throat singing, mainly practiced by monks of Tibet,Most often the chants hold to the lower pitches possible in throat singing. Various ceremonies and prayers call for throat singing in Tibetan Buddhism, often with more than one monk chanting at a time.
