Overtone Singing

Hong Kong workshops coming up

If you want to learn overtone singing with me but do not need a Chinese translation, then the workshops in Hong Kong may be something for you. Most workshops in Taiwan are with translation, which means we lose some time for interpretation. This November workshop in Hong Kong is the next opportunity to do an English-only workshop, other opportunities in Winter and Spring 2020 will be announced here soon.

First workshop location in Hong Kong, 2014

I have had such fantastic experiences during the Hong Kong workshops over the past six years and would like to look back through some photos. The first workshop I did was during the Umbrella Revolution in 2014 – though the umbrellas you see in the first photo were not related to the protest. The previous visit (late 2018) was just days after a violent typhoon struck Hong Kong, locking people in their homes with the wind bashing on their windows and rains creeping in through the windowposts. On the beach (last photo) we found the remains of shops that were completely destroyed. In between you will find mostly happier moments shared with students and Jennifer and Jasmine. And at the bottom my ‘Courage!’ statement for the many friends in Hong Kong.

 

With Jasmine Hui of Soundtherapy Hong Kong at the workshop location, a comix and animation center.

 

The fantastic Soundtherapy Hong Kong team and me have revamped the annual Outer Voice ~ Inner Voice workshop to make it a bit more accessible and diverse. At the same time old students will find some new themes to progress further in their exploration of overtone singing and the endless possibilities of the colours of the human voice.

 

The general idea is for starters to come to Part One ~ Outer Voice (day one) and from there to continue with Part Two ~ Inner Voice (day two and three). Old students can directly come to Part Two ~ Inner Voice, if they wish. Within these two blocks there are still six  themes to chose from – or you can do them all.

 

PART I ~ OUTER VOICE

THE RESONATING BODY

DAY 1. SOUND IS MOVEMENT

Session 1. Breath, Prana & Movement

Breath is one process in the totality of prana / life force, and the one that drives our vocal sound too. We slowly build up our vocal practise from the breath and from movements. From relaxation we start a journey to learn new ways of sounding and moving. Familiar, everyday patterns become tools for transformation. Plenty of group chanting and toning, too.

Session 2.        Sounds and music to lose and find yourself

We continue our exploration by shaking up things a bit more. Going wild and extreme one moment, contemplating sound and self another. Focus and un-focus. By doing less than we normally do, we notice more. We return to a primary knowledge that sits at the centre of the body-mind-division: sonic phenomenology. Musical games/meditations/dances. Serious fun. Anything is possible, and nothing too!

 

Projecting vowels into the body

 

PART II. INNER VOICE

INTO THE HEART OF SOUND

 

DAY 2. THE HARMONIC UNIVERSE

Session 3. Cosmic Listening

After some energising Voice Yoga we dive into the subtler realms of vowels, resonance and overtones. You take your first steps in The Art of Listening 2.0. Break through your habitual patterns of sounding and hearing. Expand your awareness of voice physiology. Cosmic listening to overtone singing with the sruti box and hear your own harmonics. Getting back to the more vigorous shake-ups of the day before whenever needed.

Session 4. Your Voice, Your Resonance, Your life

Overtone singing is not easy and pursuing mere technique in itself can be a burden. Armed with new understandings and experiences of the hidden dimensions of the human voice, we ask ourselves where we want to go with it. How do you resonate? What makes your voice unique? Love it or hate it? Every voice and every path is different. Pushing our vocal limits, we collectively embrace failure. And return to soothing vibrant sonic meditations.

DAY 3. CREATIVE IMAGINATION as a SOURCE OF LIFE

Session 5. Mantras, Chants and Sound poems

In an age of media technologies we have silenced ourselves and forgotten our ancestors’ songs. Mantras are among the most ancient sound tools around and we can still learn from them. The repetitive vibrations of chants also awake slumbering resonances in our body-mind. Add to that 21st century Sound Poems flavored with overtones and we have a complete palette of tools to revive the lost sonic core of our selves.

Session 6. Paraphony

Paraphony means: there is no such thing as objective sounds. Sound is shaped by your ears, your awareness, your mood … always in flux. In our last session, we throw ourselves into the creative process of making music by and for ourselves and each other. The more we live by our creative impulses—be they noisy and chaotic or contemplative and balanced—the deeper we get to know ourselves and the world around is. Resonating together, we attune ourselves to ever subtler sounds of tones, overtones and elusive acoustic realms. Grasping these phenomena, we manifest our own voice, bring it out in its own unique glory.

 

PART I ~ Session 1 and 2:

Date: 22 Nov 2019 (Fri). Time: 10am – 1pm + 2:30pm – 5:30pm

PART II ~ Session 3 /4 and 5/6: 23-24 Nov 2019 (Sat – Sun), Time: 10am – 5:30pm
To register Session 3-6 (Part II), you’re required to register for either Session 1 or 2 first. Past students can directly register for Part II without taking Session 1 or 2.

Venue (All Sessions): Sound Therapy Hong Kong

For registration go to the Soundtherapy Hong Kong website here and on Facebook.

 

Awaken your potential:

  • –     >    to listen better
  • –     >    to hear and sing the natural overtones in your voice
  • –     >    to understand your inner drives better
  • –     >    to diversify your voice

After this 3 days workshop, you will go home with a renewed sense of self through a fresh look and ‘a fresh ear’ at your voice. You will have a fuller understanding of its complex vibratory mechanisms, and get many new ideas how these operate at the point where body and mind are merged in a greater whole.  You learn techniques to better hear the world around you and inside you. These tools help you to gradually increase your musical/sound awareness, to know what needs to be healed and how to do that.

For whom?

No previous musical or vocal experience is required. Just bring a healthy dosage of curiosity and willingness to explore. The starting point is your own path as a speaker, as a communicator, as a person who enjoys music. Or simply as a human being. This workshop is beneficial for musicians and artists, for healers and therapists, and for anyone looking for more direction, meaning and depth in their lives.

 

 

Improvising theatre director Ho Ying Fung and Wu Wentsui brought me to this fantastic streetperformance in January 2018

Courage, Hong Kong!

It is my sincere wish that Hong Kong remains as much as possible as it is now:

  • a relatively free space within the larger Chinese boundaries
  • a place where Cantonese people with a democratic inclination determine the political, economic, cultural course of their unique region
  • a peaceful and culturally diverse hotspot where people from around the world live and work together without an over-active state apparatus encroaching upon their lives

My prayers go out to my Hong Kong friends and everyone else suffering from the human violence and psychological pressure. I pray too for the perpretators because it is, in my point of view, them who need to find peace of mind more than anyone else.

 

After the violent typhoon of September 2018

Can I sing sygyt for one minute without taking a breath?

Today I tried out something I do a few times a year: take a deep breath and see how long I can sing. Well, this time I just tried to sing for one minute, not as long as possible. The best technique to use for this is either khöömei or sygyt as it automatically constricts the throat and inhibits the airflow.

It is trivial, I know, but it is a good exercise for the lungs, diaphragm and the entire respiratory system. The other challenge is to make some musical sense. The throat singing is far from perfect (some of the overtones should not be there) but I decided to share it anyway as an example of some of the things I practise.

 

 

Advanced workshop Overtone Singing

WORKSHOP CONTENT
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.

VIDEO LINK
Watch a video of the Superstringtrio singing overtones using the ZERO cycle (0…) developed by Mark here:

〔心得分享〕

〔心得分享〕
馬克老師的泛唱,一點也不美聲,即使他可以輕易地呈現雲端般的夢幻…
他的聲音超越了美,對我而言,那是真實,包容了好聽 及無法定義的奇幻!
就像生命,不是只有追求完美與巔峰。
生命從磨練裡,醞釀甜美….。

有一場演出,馬克老師說: 他一開始發出的聲音{很醜}! 哈~{醜}的聲音?!

像大漠裡枯槁的皮鞭或樑柱,已經被風沙刮得乾澀。
但是就從這又乾又緊的單音裡起飛,聲音拉出了空間和視野,並再次降落…
我在這個過程中十分感動,比對美聲的感動還要多。

大家千萬別誤會,馬克老師曾經在荷蘭女皇面前獻唱,也曾和馬友友合作。
1995年獲頒吐瓦的 《國際喉音泛唱獎》; 2000年出版 Overtone Singing一書。
他是一位樸素的國際級老師,擁有完整專業的喉音泛唱素養。
重要的是: 當你明白馬克是如何對聲音臣服,如何忠於自己的心

我們對聲音的包容與感受,也會大大被感染與擴大!

WORKSHOP OVERTONE SINGING for BEGINNERS

On Saturday and Sunday March 23-24, I will teach a two-day overtone singing workshop, for those who want to get to know more about this singing technique. The workshop is open to all who are interested, with or without musical/singing experience.

 

This basic workshop is an introduction to that approach for musicians and non-musicans alike. It includes warm-up exercises to develop attention for body, mind and sound, exploring basic techniques for using the resonances of the natural voice. Then we will start our exploration of overtone techniques.

We will listen to and try more specific techniques for singing harmonics, and combine voices to work with simple, intuitive sound structures and intuitive compositional ideas.

Of course it is not possible to learn overtone singing in two days (despite some claims you find here and there). But you can get a sense of what goes on when singers produce clear overtones, sharpen your hearing in a live, acoustic situation, and get started on something you might want to explore further in the future. To hear this technique live from close by is a very important way to get familiar with this aspect of the human voice.

Every participant will get some personal feedback about his/her voice and how to get started with the technique.

Excerpt from my Overtone Singing book.

 

The workshop is in English with Chinese translation.

  • Dates: Saturday March 23 + Sunday March 24
  • Time: 10:00-17:00 (lunch break 13:00-14:00)
  • Cost: 4500 NT$
  • Bring a friend: pay 8000 instead of 9000 NT$
  • Students, pensioners and poor struggling artists: – 25% (3375 NT$).
  • Place: Artists’ community at Yangminshan, a few kilometers behind National Palace Museum. About 15 minute walk up the mountain, with stairs.

The Ouroboros Concert

Voor nederlands even naar beneden skrollen.

Here is a letter I wrote earlier this year when I was about to turn 50 (want to get on the mailinglist too? let me know!):

I love the number 49 and its symbolism. Much better than 50. So I prefer to send out a shout to everyone on the last day of my 49th year in which I am walking on this strange and wonderful place called earth, rather than on the first day of the 50th year. My dear sister Daphne somehow knew I wanted to celebrate while I was still 49, when she organised a surprise party for me several months ago. I completely and totally bought it, even after my mom and two friends showed up in a park where you would not expect that. What a great present!

And then the Tuvans, for whom 49 is a special number, play their magic on me too. Tuva and its inhabitants have shaped my life in many ways. When I was halfway on to this point of my life and getting close to 25 years old, I first visited Tuva and fell in love with the place forever. 12 Years later I visited Tuva with June Wen, and it was then and there that we found out that we are destined for each other. That led to our marriage, to our kids, to me moving to Taiwan. Life-changing experiences in which Tuva seemed to play a role.

And right now, guess what? Earlier this year I began organising several Tuvan concerts here in Taiwan, and I was asked to curate two different acts for the Asian Pacific Traditional Arts Festival. And today (last day of 49) the first Tuvan group, a young quartet called Ezengi, has just finished their job (which they did very well) and returns to Tuva. And tomorrow (first day of 50) four fine senior musicians arrive from Tuva to Taiwan for this weekend’s performances: Shonchalai and Nachyn Choodu, Andrei Öpei and Valerii Mongush. Coincidence?

 

And then, there was this other coincidence this year. When I fist visited Tuva I learned about a Scythian ornament found during archaeological excavations, consisting of a panther biting its own tail. A wonderful symbol of infinity and the ever-repeating cycles of events. “Ma fin est mon commencement” (“my end is my beginning’) as mediaeval poets and musicians such as Guillaume de Machaut knew so well. This spring a very noble and inspiring friend, the philosopher Fons Elders, sent around a message with his view about this symbol, which is known as the ouroboros in the western world. A little later I performed in the Oosterkerk in Amsterdam with the wonderful Turkish ney player Sinan Arat, a concert I had arranged to be filmed so that I could share it with everybody. In the background of our stage happened to be . . . an ouroboros. So a few days ago, while working on the video I decided to call it “The Ouroboros Concert”. The next day I took the Tuvans to the Pacific Ocean – Tuva being very far removed from any sea or ocean. They decided to try surfing and that’s how I noticed the Scythian ouroboros tattooed on the arm of Anchy Damdyn. What a great idea! The first time ever I imagined I could have a tattoo too.

So by way of celebration and to express the gratitude I feel for being a human amidst so many wonderful human beings I share this Ouroboros concert video with you.

 

Nederlands

Hier is een brief die ik onlangs rondstuurde, toen ik op het punt stond 49 te worden (ook op de mailinglijst? laat het weten!):

49 Is een prachtig getal met een prachtige symboliek. Veel beter dan 50. Dus stuur ik een groet aan iedereen op de laatste dag van de 49 jaar dat ik op deze vreemde, wonderlijke planeet rondloop, in plaats van de eerste dag van mijn 50e. Mijn lieve zus Daphne voelde kennelijk al aan dat ik liever even stil sta bij mijn leven op mijn 49e, toen ze een surprise party voor me oganiseerde enkele maanden geleden. Ik stonk er totaal in, zelfs nadat mijn moeder en enkele vrienden spontaan opdoken in een park waar je hen toch niet 1-2-3 samen verwacht. Wat een geweldig cadeau!

En de Toevanen, voor wie het getal 49 ook speciale betekenis heeft, duiken ook weer op haast magische wijze op. Zoals jullie weten hebben Toeva en haar inwoners mijn leven op allerlei manieren vorm gegeven. Toen ik halverwege het punt was waar ik nu ben, dus bijna 25 jaar oud, bezocht ik Toeva voor het eerst en raakte voorgoed verslingerd aan deze plek. 12 Jaar later ging ik naar Toeva met June en we ontdekten, toen en daar, dat we voorbestemd waren voor elkaar. Dat leidde dus tot ons huwelijk, kinderen en tenslotte mijn verhuizing naar Taiwan. Nog een levenswending waar Toeva haast een sturende hand in leek te hebben.

En wat is er nu aan de hand? Ik begon eerder dit jaar een aantal Toevaanse concerten te organiseren hier in Taiwan, en werd onder andere verzocht twee programma’s in te vullen voor het Asian Pacific Traditional Arts Festival. En vandaag (de laatste dag dat ik 49 ben) vertrekt de eerste Toevaanse groep, een jong kwartet genaamd Ezengi (nadat ze zich trouwens uitstekend gekweten hebben van hun taak). En morgen (de eerste dag dat ik 50 ben) arriveren er vier geweldige senior musici uit Toeva: Shonchalai en Nachyn Choodu, Andrei Öpei en Valerii Mongush. Toeval?

 

En dan was er nog iets dit jaar. Toen ik Toeva voor het eerst bezocht leerde ik een Scythisch ornament kennen, dat bij archeologische opgravingen gevonden was en dat bestaat uit een panter die in zijn staart bijt. Een prachtig symbool van oneindigheid en de eeuwigdurende cycli van gebeurtenissen. “Ma fin est mon commencement” zoals middeleeuwse dichters en musici als Guillaume de Machaut heel goed wisten. Dit voorjaar stuurde vriend en inspiratiebron Fons Elders een bericht rond met daarin zijn visie op dit symbool, dat bekend staat als oeroboros in de westerse wereld. Iets later trad ik op in de Oosterkerk in Amsterdam met een geweldige Turkse ney-speler, Sinan Arat, een concert dat ik liet opnemen op video (en waarvoor je de link onderaan vindt). Juist achter ons podium bevond zich . . . een mooie uit hout gesneden oeroboros. En dus besloot ik een aantal dagen geleden toen ik met de video bezig was om ons optreden Het Oeroboros Concert te noemen. De volgende dag (afgelopen zaterdag) nam ik de Toevaanse musici mee naar de oceaan (waar de Toevanen verder van verwijderd zijn dan zo’n beetje wie dan ook ter wereld). Ze wilden graag gaan surfen en zo ontdekte ik de tatoeage van zo’n Scytische oeroboros op de arm van Anchy Damdyn. Wat een geweldig idee! Nooit eerder had ik ook maar een seconde de gedachte gekoesterd dat een tatoeage voor mij zelf ook best interessant kon zijn.


Dus om even stil te staan bij dit bijzondere moment in mijn leven en uitdrukking te geven aan de dankbaarheid om een mens te zijn te midden van allerlei fantastische mensen met wie ik mij omringd weet, deel ik nu deze Oeroboros concertvideo met jullie.

 

Concert with Sinan Arat in Oosterkerk, Amsterdam

Over enkele weken doe ik een dubbelconcert met Sinan Arat in de Oosterkerk in amsterdam. Hij is vooral bekend van zijn ney spel, zijn hoofdinstrument. Ik heb hem nog niet ontmoet maar we hebben wel overlegd hoe we het willen gaan doen. Vanwege ons beider voorliefde voor improvisatie hebben we besloten te proberen om niet twee solo-blokken te spelen met een beetje overlap, maar de uitwisseling aan te gaan. Ik ben al langer op zoek naar samenwerking met een goede fluitspeler. In Taiwan zijn die dun gezaaid, zeker spelers die een dergelijke rijke, luchtige klank produceren. Dat heb je natuurlijk in Japan met de shakuhachi en in India met de bansuri (die Sinan ook bespeelt). Maar ik werd helemaal stil van het spel van Sinan toen ik gisteren onderstaande video van hem bekeek. Van die prachtige, lange, rustige tonen, waarin de adem steeds doorklinkt, en daarmee de ziel van de speler – of van de muziek zelf zo je wilt.

 

 

Sinan bespeelt naast de ney rietfluit ook lijsttrommels en zingt, en hij heeft Indiase muziek bestudeerd. En aangezien ik de laatste jaren ook experimenteer met fluiten en met de Marrokaanse bendir lijsttrommel én omdat ik ook al jaren met Indiase muziek bezig ben, hebben we aardig wat overlap. Ik ben heel benieuwd hoe dat gaat uitpakken, zijn voornamelijk traditionele spel met mijn meer experimentele benadering.

 

Het concert is op zondag 15 juli en begint om 12:00

Gratis toegankelijk (donaties welkom).

Adres: Oosterkerk, Kleine Wittenburgerstraat 1, Amsterdam.

 

De dag ervoor doe ik een eendaagse workshop boventoonzang, ook in de Oosterkerk in Amsterdam, voor wie wil kennismaken met deze techniek.

 

Beluister ook het mooie interview met Sinan rondom de VPRO sessie.

“Sinan Arat uit Turkije speelt en improviseert op de ney (Turkse fluit) en laat zich inspireren door de Ottomaanse en Anatolische traditie. Hij wordt begeleid door Alper Kekeç op percussie. In het interview met Giovanca vertelt Sinan hoe hij kennis leerde maken met de ney.”

聲音的共鳴 年度工作坊
2017 – 2018
探索人類聲音隱藏的淺能—用泛音跟新的音質來創造音樂; 以新的方式傾聽世界以及自己的聲音; 用自己的聲音作為轉變與進行更有效的表達的工具。

「透過呼吸與聆聽身體及環境中的共鳴我們展開一段不可思議的巡禮,發掘創新與治療的潛能。」
馬克.范.湯格鄰

「最令我們感動的是老師的帶領方式…不著痕跡、有洞見地、循序漸進、有創意、好玩且即時。滿心誠摯的感謝。」
Una Kao

【自己,自己的聲音,與自己的存在】
要如何找到自己的聲音? 要怎麼做自己? 要如何不再做自己,而成為另一個人? 另一個你想成為的人?

要如何感覺自己整個存有共鳴,活著的,完整的……對自己的存在感到自在,可以在他人面前展現真正的自己? 和其他可以做自己的人相會;不用特別有禮貌或是維持外表的和諧?

在德蘇(Mark van Tongeren)的聲音的【共鳴】課程中,音樂—特別是人聲—會是幫助你達到以上目標的工具。探入你的靈魂深處,顛覆你的心思跟想法,甚至改變你的物質身體。把「一個人自身」不同的「部份」重新結合,化為一個能夠共振的整體;成為一個震動、脈搏和頻率的交響樂。

泛音演唱技巧是本門課的訓練基礎。泛音就像是你的聲音音色中,自成一格的小世界。你會浸淫於基礎泛音序列的音樂性聲音。我們會一次次的改變我們聆聽以及發聲的方式,以開啟泛音和泛音序列隱藏的層面。實際訓練方法將以帶實驗性和個人化的方式進行、使你能夠更自由地表達自我,運用你聲音中本自俱足的豐富音色。

《招收對象》
我們歡迎各種背景的人來參加【共鳴】課程。前學員有上班族、老師、藝術學校的學生跟創意工作者;也有電腦專家、瑜珈老師跟對聲音有障礙的人;也還有熱愛蒙古與圖瓦呼麥的男歌者,和受古典訓練的女高音。這個課程開立給任何對聲音的創造性有興趣;在生活中尋求平衡的現代人。不須任何音樂背景。不過,已經參加過幾個泛音課程的學生也還有很多可以學。如果你還在猶豫,歡迎聯繫我們來問問題。

【授課語言】
本門課老師以英語授課,你的中文翻譯,陳亮伃,會依照需求重點式或整段翻譯。

【收費、折扣、與優惠說明】
【共鳴】工作坊(十堂課)學費總計17,500 NT$。
請於開課前完成繳費報名。

「與聲音同在為我帶來這麼多的喜悅。我在這裡找到我的自我。我應該要唱出來,為你而唱,讓你知道你帶給我有多少。」
新竹的Sky

「很喜歡聲音自由地、自發地流出的狀態。我雖是唱者,同時我也是聽者。我聽著聲音從我的口中流出~自然的流出~聲音是靈魂的語言,有些東西無法用語言和文字來表達。我覺得泛唱可以打開許多未知和不可知。」
三重的Amano

「這兩年接觸了聲音瑜伽和共鳴,老師的溫和及不急不徐,讓我願意嘗試,運用這個身體和聲音,可以打開一個更大的世界,而吵雜的噪音也可能變得有趣。只要用老師引導的方式,回到身體、進入呼吸之流,不費力的,緊張逐漸卸下。一旦人放鬆了,心也開始變得自由,遊戲本能甦醒,就讓自己的聲音成為聽見自己的陪伴。老師的無為而為又溫柔堅定的帶領,讓我碰觸對喉嚨和身體的緊縮,於是知道怎麼讓它再度打開。」
台北的Nancy

Explore the hidden dimensions of the human voice.
Make music with overtones and new timbres.
Listen to the world and to yourself with new ears.
Learn how to use your voice as a powerful tool for transformation and better communication.

By taking time to breathe and to listen to all the ways in which the body and the world resonates, we open up an amazing path of discovery and creative, therapeutic learning. – Mark van Tongeren

What impressed us is the way of your teaching … subtle, perceptual, respective, creative, fun and updated. Thank you sincerely. – Una Kao

YOU, YOUR VOICE, AND YOUR BEING
How to find your own voice? How to be who you are? How not to be who you are, but to become someone else? Someone you wish to be?

How to feel your whole being resonating, alive, complete …. to feel at ease with yourself, and to be completely YOU while in the presence of others? To meet others around you who can also be themselves, without acting nicely, or keeping up appearances?

In Mark van Tongeren’s R E S O N A N C E course, music, and most of all, the human voice, is the foremost instrument to achieve precisely that goal. To reach into the greatest depths of your soul, to stir your mind and your thinking, even to change your physical body. To bring all these disparate ‘parts’ of ‘a single self’ together in a fully resonating whole, a symphony of vibrations, pulses, frequencies.

The backbone of this training program is the overtone singing technique. Overtones are like a world of their own residing within the timbres of your voice. You will deeply immerse yourself in the fundamental harmonic laws of musical sound We will come back again and again to change the way we listen and vocalise, opening up to the hidden dimension of overtones, the harmonics that our voices and ears know well but our minds know not. In an experiential and personalised way you will learn to express yourself better, using a fuller range and spectrum of your voice.

 

FOR WHOM?
We have welcomed all kinds of people in the R e s o n a n c e course, from white-collar workers and school teachers to art students and creative professionals, from computer experts to yoga teachers and people with voice problems, from male afficionadoes of Mongolian and Tuvan khöömei to classically trained soprano’s.
This course is aimed at anyone with an interest in or sensitivity for sound as a creative principle. and those seeking more balance in their live.
No previous musical experience is required. For students who have already done one or more workshops of overtone singing there will still be plenty to learn. If you are in doubt, contact us with your questions.

 

LANGUAGE
The course will be mostly conducted in English. Your interpreter Sunny Chen will summarise or translate entire parts of the course into Mandarin, depending on the needs.

TESTIMONIALS
So much happiness and joy of being with you.
And it’s where I find ME.
I should sing it. Sing it for you.
To let you know how much you give me.
Sky from Hsinchu

I really enjoy sound flowing out freely and impulsively. Although I am the singer, I am also the listener, I hear sound coming out of my mouth, naturally flowing.
I feel sound is the language of the soul, something language cannot express.
I really wish to learn overtone singing.
I feel overtone singing opens up some unknown and unfathomable territories.
Amano from Hsinchu

ARTIST BIOGRAPHIES
Choduraa Tumat hails from the steppe grasslands of Western Tuva, a republic in South Siberia that is part of the Russian Federation. As a child, she was fond of listening to khoomei and sygyt throat singing performed by her brothers.

In 1998 she founded and became the artistic leader of the all-female throat-singing folk ensemble Tyva Kyzy (‘Daughters of Tuva’). She is now an accomplished performer of many Tuvan throat-singing styles: khoomei, sygyt, kargyraa, ezenggileer and chylandyk. Tumat has been performing professionally since 1998.

Besides throat-singing, she sings traditional folk songs, plays chanzy (three-stringed lute), igil (two-stringed horse-head fiddle), shoor (recorder), khomus (Jew’s harp), all to be heard in today’s concert. She also plays byzaanchy (four-stringed horse-head fiddle), doshpuluur (three-stringed lute) and chadagan (zither). She received several prizes and honourary titles in her native Republic of Tuva, as well as invitations to Moscow, other Russian cities and many countries around the world.

A graduate from the East-Siberian State Academy in Buryatia, she carries out postgraduate research on female throat singing at the Tuva State University and teaches there and at other schools in Tuva’s capitol Kyzyl. Tumat is the highest-ranking teacher with experience in training foreign students the skills of throat singing and traditional music. She founded the first group of female throat singers, Tyva Kyzy and led their tours to Japan, China, Taiwan, the USA and many European countries. She recorded several CDs and a DVD, both solo and with Tyva Kyzy.

Pisui Ciyo is a performing artist, choreographer, educator and scholar who began her professional carreer as the lead performer of the Formosa Aboriginal Song and Dance Troupe, 1994-1997, an early project to raise public awareness and give a stronger voice to Taiwan’s indigenous people. Besides taking inspiration from her Tayal background, she traveled widely and worked with native American tribes and flamenco artists, among others. Her performances range from traditional songs to contemporary dance, and from musical poetry to socially engaged text theatre. She is the recipient of several fellowships and awards, and currently prepares a PhD at Taipei National University of the Arts.

Sauniaw Tjuveljevelj is the youngest inheritor in Paiwan flute and nose flute (lalingedan), and she is the only one female inheritor in Paiwan culture. Recently, she is devoted to transmitting Paiwan music culture to younger generations. In addition to release three CD albums, nominated by the Golden Melody Awards in Taiwan, she did fieldwork to collect endangered traditional tunes for teaching material and conducted numerous workshops to promote Paiwan music. She interprets traditional tunes in a creative way to express traditional and modern Paiwan music for the contemporary world. Sauniaw performed in Australia, America, Japan, Morocco, Singapore, Malaysia, Solomon Islands, Estonia, Philippines, and Hong Kong with many famous musicians.

 

 

Ivan Alberto was born in Mexico city. Ivan started his studies on contemporary percussion but one of his main influences has been traditional music specially Indonesian and Mexican. He went to study traditional gamelan, puppetry as well as instruments construction on Bali and Java and currently lives in Taiwan, where he works with theatre.

 

Mark van Tongeren is a vocalist/sound explorer who received a PhD in Creative and Performing Arts from Leiden University. In his artistic work he emphasises performance/theatrical aspects of music and collaborates with visual artists, composers and dancers. Essentially an improviser, he also duetted with cellist Yo-Yo Ma on a Bach partita, took part in the world premiere of a film score by Russian composer Dmitri Shoshtakovich, and collaborated on dance projects in Taiwan with Horse, Ming-Hwa Yeh and Taipei Dance Circle.

ART OF TUVAN THROAT SINGING / KHÖÖMEI WITH CHODURAA TUMAT

Beginners workshop 10:00-13:00
Advanced students 14:00 – 17:00
English spoken with Chinese translation.
Location: Canjune Training Center, Fu Xing South Road Sec. 2, Lane 151, No. 3, 4th Floor. For map and route, check here, scroll down.

Throat singing is one of Tuva’s most iconic cultural expressions. Children in Tuva grow up listening to subtle shades of timbre and to overtones that are rare or unheard of in many cultures. It takes years to really master Tuvan overtone singing, moving forward step by step. Today you can join a beginner’s workshop and learn about the three basic techniques (in the morning) or continue your practise of them (in the afternoon). Choduraa Tumat is an experienced guide for males and females, and will be assisted by Mark van Tongeren, an expert in the theory and practise of throat singing living in Taiwan.

While learning a Tuvan song, we will get to know and practise these three well-defined techniques of Tuvan throat singing:
Khöömei
The Tuvan khöömei refers to all types of Tuvan throat singing in general and to one particular technique. According to the Tuvans it is with this technique that throat singing began. Khöömei comes closer to the articulation of everyday vowel sounds than the other techniques.

Sygyt
This is the principal style in Tuva. Like all Tuvan throat singing, a guttural voice is necessary to produce sygyt. The name refers to ‘whistling’ and indeed, this technique sounds more like whistling or a flute than the other tow basic techniques. Sygyt resounds powerfully in the surrounding space, making it hard to tell where the sound comes from.

Kargyraa
Tuvan kargyraa is most easily recognised by its unusually deep bass register, which gives the voice a very rough quality. In kargyraa the harmonics of the melody are usually paired with vowels. Listeners have to learn to hear the overtones ‘through’ the vowels. Kargyraa is probably the most difficult technique to learn and to explain.

Price: 2500 NT$ (for each half day, that is, morning or afternoon)
Discounts
– Students with ID:    20% / 500 nt$ (bring your ID)

喉唱是圖瓦最具代表性的文化資產表現之一。圖瓦的兒童從小就生長在聆聽音色裡細微的弦外之音,並聆聽在許多文化裡罕見甚至從未聽過的泛音(overtones)。要專精於圖瓦的喉唱,必須要花很多年,一步一步的精進。現在你可以參加這個為初學者舉辦的工作坊,並學習到三種基本的技巧(上午時段班),或是繼續你的練習(下午時段班)。楚德拉.圖瑪特(Choduraa Tumat)是一位男性及女性喉唱資深的導師,並由居住在台灣的喉唱理論及實務專家馬克‧范‧湯可鄰(Mark van Tongeren)擔任助教。

當學習圖瓦歌曲時,我們將會了解並練習以下三種已被明確定義的圖瓦喉唱技巧:
呼麥(Khöömei)
在圖瓦,呼麥泛指所有圖瓦喉唱的形式,也同時單指一種特定的技巧。根據圖瓦人的說法,圖瓦的喉唱就是從這裡開始的。呼麥相較於其他的技巧,更貼近於日常發音的母音發音。
西奇(Sygyt)
這是圖瓦的主流喉唱風格。一如所有圖瓦喉唱,必須要有喉音的聲音來產生西奇。它的名稱指的就是「哨音」,而且事實上,這個技巧聽起來比其他兩種技巧更像是在吹口哨,或是笛子的聲音。西奇的迴盪聲響在環繞的空間裡非常有強而有力,令人很難辨識到底聲音是從何方而來。
卡基拉(Kargyraa)
圖瓦的卡基拉因為它獨特的低沉貝斯音色,是最容易被辨識的,也帶給人聲一種非常粗曠的音質。在卡基拉技巧中,旋律中的泛音常伴隨於各種母音。聽眾需要學習透過這些母音來聆聽其中的泛音(overtone)。卡基拉是所有技巧中最難解釋與學習的。
