This 2,5 day workshop is for students familiar with the basic overtone singing techniques and who want to improve their technical skills, explore new possibilities and just have fun singing together.
The emphasis is on three themes:
1) getting out clearer individual overtones
2) creating duo and trio pieces with overtones using Mark’s ZERO method.
3) creating other choral pieces
Besides the technical and creative side of overtone singing, we spend time on voice-building, particularly to warm-up and refresh the singing body. Throat singing is not part of this workshop.
We have two days plus two evenings of singing and playing. A great opportunity to catch up with your overtone technique and enjoy singing together.
We are staying in Hui Mei’s BNB/camping, already familiar to several Resonators. You can only stay overnight in shared rooms (two or four people in one room). A tent is also possible, though… Rooms and food are included in the price.
Watch a video of the Superstringtrio singing overtones using the ZERO cycle (0…) developed by Mark here:
– students who have done the RESONANCE yeargroup with Mark
– those who have done several workshops of overtone singing with Mark or someone else
– anyone familiar with the basic techniques such as NG/1 cavity and RR/2 cavities and able to sing them.
Newcomers to overtone singing are referred to the 2-day Beginners workshop Overtone Singing in March in Taipei. Only exceptionally talented students qualify for joining this workshop after the beginners’ workshop, if they wish to.
WHAT YOU NEED
You can bring your own sruti box, drum, guitar or Jew’s harp for a joint improv session, but this is not necessary. Just your voice will do! Resonance students please bring the older pieces you like to sing so we can repeat some sogs you are already familiar with.
Other things like sleeping bags we will tell you after registration.
