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.

Spirit in Sound

Svaram started as a social development project with local unemployed youngsters. But in over more than a decade, it has developed into a real research enterprise in sound. It is a work in matter with sounds, which helps to symbolically manifest and reflect, through the craft-work, the deep underlying vision in Auroville. Svaram researches and produces a wide variety of world-music instruments’ from original and primal sound- makers to sophisticated string resonators, which find application in the emerging field of music education, sound therapy and personal growth. To Aurelio, musical instruments are like archetypal principles and as such limited to what one can do with them, but it does allow him to manifest some of the research in sound in the quest for that “unique sound of Auroville.”
