Intro to Overtone Singing
Feb 10 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Learn to sing two notes at the same time.

Do you really need more information than that? Ok. Maybe you do!

Overtone Singing is a technique that enables 1 vocalist to produce and, with a bit of practice, control 2 notes simultaneously. Overtone singing can be used in various contexts, from emulating synthesized sounds to full self-polyphony. When multiple voices come together to sing in this style, a relaxing, glowing atmosphere is created. This workshop will explain the theory behind overtone singing and teach the basic techniques of producing them.
