Harmonic kiss by Bach Yen & Tran Quang Hai , 01 02 2009

The Harmonic Kiss is the exercice to use two mouths closing together but never being touched. One mouth plays the role of producer of a fixed sound as a fundamental while the second mouth plays the role of receptor as an external resonator which amplifies the overtones and modify them by changing the shape of the lips and mouth in pronouncing vowels “o – a , o – a , o – a”  many times without making sound .

The result is that one can hear some overtones over the fundamental sound sung by the other mouth. This exercice  is used for music therapy and has been developed by Tran Quang Hai during his workshops for many years .
