TongerenOvertoneSingingCover3
BOOK SUMMARY:
In Overtone Singing, ethnomusicologist and singer Mark van Tongeren provides a fascinating insight into the timeless and universal aspects of sound and vibration. Grounded in a decade-long study of Asian music, he draws upon various fieldwork experiences, interviews with eastern and western musicians, in addition to the work of numerous scholars. He presents a multidisciplinary vision on sound that runs from World and contemporary music to the science of acoustics and perception, to music philosophy and the spiritual dimensions of music. Written in a non-technical style, this book and accompanying audio CD are indispensable guides to musicians, listeners and music specialists seeking a deeper understanding of the nature of the human voice, sound and overtones.

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:

FOR WHOM
– 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.

【2019 泛音初階工作坊】

〔課程內容〕
3月23到24日,星期六跟星期日,我會帶領一個兩天的泛音歌唱工作坊,給想學習泛音歌唱技巧的人。這個工作坊對所有人開放,不限音樂知識或歌唱經驗。

這個工作坊給音樂家及非音樂家的介紹課程。其內容包含了暖身運動以發展身體、心靈以及聲音的覺知,還有自然人聲共鳴的探索的基本技巧。接下來,我們會開始學習音泛音歌唱的技巧。

我們也會聆聽以及嘗試不同的泛音歌唱技巧。結合所有人的聲音來嘗試簡單直覺性的聲音架構,以及編曲概念。

當然,想要在一兩天內學會泛音歌唱是不可能的(雖然坊間很多宣稱可以馬上學會的廣告)。不過在兩天的工作坊中,你可以感受跟理解歌手要如何唱出清楚的泛音,透過現場感受聲音而增進聽力的細膩度,你也可以開始探索你未來可能想持續探索的歌唱方式、聲音。親身經歷,現場感受對於熟悉泛音(人類聲音的一個面向之一)非常重要。

 

每位參與者也會得到老師的個別指導,以了解自己的聲音與如何開始增進泛音技巧。

課程語言為英文,加上中文翻譯。

【日期】: 3/23 (六)、3/24 (日)

【時間】: 10:00-17:00 (中間午休一小時)

〔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.

INFO & REGISTRATION

If you don’t read Chinese and are interested to join, or if you have any questions drop me an email (mark@fusica.nl) to get all the details.
