Sample Text from my book

Overtone singing is considered by some to be harmonic

singing with the intentional emphasis on the nonfundamental

harmonic notes. There is a category commonly

known as “Western Overtone singing” that utilizes vowels,

mouth shaping, and upper throat manipulations such as

rotation of the hyoid bone to produce melodies and textures.

In most cases, this produces a sound that is mildly guttural,

with clear, but soft harmonics. There is often a strong nasal

component, and a generally diffuse buzzing sound.

There are a number of Western classical schools that have

tried to integrate the sounds of Overtone singing into 

western music. One of the best-known classical composers

is the German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen. He

composed a work first performed in December 1968 entitled

Stimmung  which was based on Overtone singing. The

inspiration for this harmonic choral work was derived from

the invocation of magical powers and the gods of the people

of Mexico. Other workers in this field such as David Hykes

have related their music to “gravity waves”, “solar winds”,

and even sunshine itself.
