Intro to Overtone Singing
Feb 9 @ 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 one vocalist to produce and, with a bit of practice, control two 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.

Harmonic Introductions is a small vocal ensemble dedicated to expanding the awareness, appreciation, and understanding of overtone singing. Founded by Robb Saffell and Julian-Israel Canizares in Spring, 2012, Harmonic Introductions seeks to teach, perform, and build a culture and community focused on the art of overtone singing.
