Stuart Hinds performance at Lawndale Art Center

Ajoutée le 5 déc. 2011

Lawndale Art Center is pleased to present a performance by composer and overtone signer Stuart Hinds. In recent years, overtone singing has become more widely known and appreciated. Overtone singing can be heard in pop music, movie soundtracks, and even prime time television commercials. This rise in popularity is largely due to successful tours and recordings by musicians representing the two major styles: Tibetan Buddhist chant and Tuvan/Mongolian throat singing. In the West, an increasing number of musicians are employing the techniques in their work. All these styles have in common an essentially drone-based musical texture with an unchanging fundamental pitch and a melody of overtones. Stuart Hinds is unique among overtone singers for the level of technical mastery and fluency he has achieved. Hinds takes overtone singing to a new expressive level. In a quantum leap beyond traditional drone-based singing, Hinds is able to vocally produce two distinct musical lines at the same time. His original compositions stretch the boundaries of overtone singing into a completely new genre of music that can embrace any musical style. Hinds work reflects his classical training, with influences from many musical cultures a unique style that appeals to a broad range of listeners. stuarthinds.com

Alas! – Stuart Hinds

Alas! – Stuart Hinds

Published on Jun 2, 2017

Patrick Moore – cello Stuart Hinds – overtone singing performed at St. Thomas University, 9.29.16 The inspiration for Alas! came from the lute songs of John Dowland. Even though there are no lyrics, the emotional content and polyphonic style are similar to Dowland’s. The piece was originally composed for voice and bassoon and has also been performed with bass clarinet, but this performance was given with cello.
