The Harmonic Voice - Overtone Workshop
Overtone Workshop Saturday 14th March 2020
with David Moss and Masha Kastner
The Lightgarden Music Room, 1 Fulney Close, Trowbridge BA14 7LF,
We are delighted to offer our first workshop of the new decade.In one day you will learn how to overtone chant...
Overtone chanting is an ancient vocal technique of holding a single note and simultaneously sounding the harmonics of that note.
The harmonics are heard above the drone note as a high pitched flute-like or bell-like sound.
As well as being intriguing and fun, overtone singing offers a unique way of using the voice in a relaxed way which can have many benefits:
improved well-being, increased concentration and attentiveness in a way which is both calming and invigorating.
David and Masha are experienced in teaching this weird and wonderful technique having run workshops for over 15 years and can honestly say that everyone attending their courses 'has got it'. During the day you are offered a step by step approach allowing you to explore your voice safely, gently and joyfully and introducing you to the 'knack' of producing overtones in two different styles without strain or needing to have previous singing experiences.
During the workshop we will:
- Explore how to produce overtones in the Khoomei and Sygyt styles
- Look into some theory: what are overtones, how does sound influence matter
- Listen to overtone chanting in different cultures
- Explore use of overtones for well-being
- Indulge in sound bathing
The maximum number of participants for this workshop is 15. Advance booking is essential, please Contact Us with any questions related to a general interest in overtone chanting.
Warm wishes and hope to see you soon,
David and Masha
