March 18-21, May 20-23,  2023 RESONANCE – Overtone Singing Intensive 聲音的共鳴  泛音詠唱密集課程 Scroll down for English 完整深度學習泛音詠唱,開發聲音與身體的潛能,就在今年三月與五月。 Learn overtone singing and unravel your vocal creativity with Mark van Tongeren   「聲音作為一個自我探索的途徑。」 Sound as a path for self-discovery 音樂深深地觸動你嗎?你希望你的聲音也能深深地觸動他人嗎? 你相信音樂與聲音其實是一種強而有力的轉化工具,而你應該更多了解它嗎? 你希望學習到如何讓說話的聲音聽起來像音樂,也讓唱歌的聲音輕鬆的自然流露,跟說話一樣容易嗎?   【共鳴】是指聲音與其他振動細微的交互作用。   【聲音的共鳴】 泛音密集課程將教導你打破既有的聆聽與發聲習慣 讓你能夠發揮聆聽聲音與製造聲音(說話、吟詠、歌唱)的無限潛能。 允許很多(內在與外在的)的聲音以一個更平衡的方式彼此共振,這需要時間。 在現今匆忙的世界裡,我們總是想要做太多的事。 這個課程邀請你以8天,2個工作坊的方式,傳授你完整的泛音詠唱技巧 同時在3個月的時間,逐漸吸收新的使用聲音的方式; 在老師與助教的陪同下,找出自己唱出泛音的方式 汲取關於聲音與聆聽的想法;讓聲音引導信念、讓信念轉化成聲波能量   【聲音它至高無上的重要性】 泛音演唱技巧是本門課的核心訓練
