Once again the succesful Voice Yoga Retreat.

In Voice Yoga’s dynamic group process, students go beyond their own habits and expectations. Often, something larger than ourselves emerges: a flow of hidden creative potential. We work with all kinds of sounds without meaning, without emphasizing a beautiful voice. They help us to get beyond common subject-object and mind-body dualities, and bring our unconscious selves and irrational emotions to the surface. The group process becomes a mirror for the self and allows us to ‘see’ ourselves more clearly, to hear what’s living deep inside.

“this is better than sex” (comment by one student)

Designed and taught by Mark van Tongeren, a Dutch sound explorer with a deep interest in the synergy of arts, sciences and contemplative traditions. Mark has 25 years of experience in theatre, music and dance productions and holds a PhD from Leiden University’s Academy of Creative of Performing Arts.

2020 聲音瑜珈: 盛夏暑光 療癒假期

3天半的時間 / 關於聲音與身體的探索/ —
連結你的身心平衡,以及充滿創造力、活力的存在。

**************************************
聲音瑜珈是個動態的團體過程,學員超越自我的慣性跟期望。比自我更廣大的自己開始甦醒: 那些隱藏著的創造力開始顯現,如河水般開始流動。

透過瑜珈等身體訓練的方式,我們回到自己的身體,並且跟各式各樣的聲音工作,不去強調所謂「美麗的聲音」。聲音幫助我們超越日常的主體-客體跟身-心的二元對立,讓我們的下意識的自我跟理性之外的情感開始浮現。團體工作的過程好像是一面鏡子,讓我們每個人都「看見」自己,聆聽我們心底、靈魂的存在。

【聲音瑜伽是什麼?】
Mark的聲音瑜珈系統/課程,已經經過了8年的課程推廣與實踐。聲音瑜珈是Mark融合他在藝術創造、聲音表現、瑜珈練習、哲思傳統的30年經驗的系統。

聲音瑜珈不是我們所熟知的身心運動,也不是日常常聽的音樂、歌唱。它結合了音樂、聲音、戲劇、哲思跟肢體藝術的領域,是Mark個人經驗的藝術綜合體。Mark特殊的綜合能力及視野使得每個活動都有種特殊的流、律動。身體訓練與難忘(但無法被重複的)音樂創造結合、呼吸練習轉化成為接觸即興、聲音即興演化為類劇場表演。

不管你是音樂家、瑜珈老師、舞者、演員,或是對透過探索聲音、身體以及心靈之關聯以追尋自我成長的人, 我們相信療癒假期會是個讓你充電的好機會。

用聲音瑜珈來找到自己的力量吧!

【對象】
任何人都可以參加,不限瑜珈經驗或音樂訓練。發出聲音是種找出動作跟聲音, 聲音音高跟身體震動之間連結的練習,而不是廣義上的瑜珈。課程的重點不是瑜珈練習,而是發出聲音,感覺音調跟身體的震動。我們希望營造包容並接納差異的工作氛圍。我們會確保不同肢體程度、心理階段、音樂訓練以及正在發展身心靈各面向的學員可以在安全,全然被支持的環境下成長並探索。我們會盡其所能來帶領每個獨特的學員。而如果有些練習對你來說太挑戰了,你可以選擇作為觀察者,或是選擇以另一個形式來參與。

VOICE YOGA SUMMER RETREAT
**************************************

Saturday August 22 10 AM until Tuesday 25 2 PM
Three and a half days of intense explorations of voice and movement for body-mind balance and creative, vibrant well-being.

**************************************

In Voice Yoga’s dynamic group process, you go beyond your habits and expectations. Something larger than yourself emerges: a flow of hidden creative potential.

Grounded in physical exercise such as yoga, we work with all kinds of sounds without meaning, without emphasizing a beautiful voice. They help us to get beyond common subject-object and mind-body dualities, and bring our unconscious selves and irrational emotions to the surface. The group process becomes a mirror for the self and allows us to ‘see’ ourselves more clearly, to hear what’s living deep inside.

BACKGROUNDS
Mark’s Voice Yoga runs for over 8 years and brings together three decades of creative, vocal expression, yogic discipline and contemplative traditions.
Voice Yoga is neither yoga as you see all around you, or music as you hear it every day. It is a personal, artistic synthesis of a wide range of musical, resonant, theatrical, contemplative and physical arts. What binds them together is Mark’s unique synthesis and his vision to create a strong sense of flow, no matter what the activity is. Serious workouts smoothly blend with unforgettable (and unrepeatable!) musical creations, deep breath work morphs into contact improv and vocal exercises into absurdistic theatre.

This retreat will give you a big boost, whether you are a musician, dancer, yoga teacher, actor, or just interested in working on your personal growth through the connections between sound, body and mind. No problem if you’ve never done yoga before!

*********************

VOICE YOGA SUMMER RETREAT: FOR WHOM?
Anyone can attend, no experience with yoga or music is necessary. Making sounds and learning about the connections between sound and movement, tones and physical vibrations, and not yoga per se, are the main purpose of this retreat. We are working to create an atmosphere of inclusion and acceptance. We make sure people of different levels of physical, mental, musical and other development feel supported and encouraged to grow and explore. We do our best to accommodate the program to the different levels of the participants and let you decide to skip or tone down certain exercises when you feel they are too demanding.

DATES & TIMES
We start Saturday August 22 at 9 AM and suggest you arrive the evening before.
We finish after lunch on Tuesday 25th, around 1:30 PM.

This is the first time we do this in high Summer and we might adapt the program a bit to accommodate to the needs and energies of the group – and to the weather.

Day 1:
9:00-12:00 introduction to the program. Light exercising, breathing exercises start moving toning, improvising. Deep sleep session included!
12:00-15:30 lunch & siësta
15:30-18:30 Guided movement and sound practices, walking meditations, improvisations and more.
18:30-20:00 diner & rest
20:00-21:30 evening program: active sound meditation.

Day 2, 3, 4 (half day):
9:00-12:00 Slow meditative warm up, mild to vigorous exercising, toning, noise making. Once again: restorative (half-)sleep/dream.
12:00-15:30 lunch & siësta
15:30-18:30 Guided movement and sound practices, walking meditations, improvisations and more.
18:30-20:00 diner & rest
20:00-21:30 Moongazing. Sound searching. Mark’s concert. Yours?! Ours!
Day 2, 3, 4: optional: Early morning yoga sessions: 7-8 AM. For those who rise early anyway or those who would like to get the most out of this retreat of active relaxation, this session of yoga-only is the best start of the day. (we suggest you discuss the option of bringing your breakfast along with your b’n’b host unless you stay in walking distance from our site).

PLACE
We hold our sessions in Shufang’s Energy Healing, a gorgeous new yoga studio in Dulan, Taidong, isolated from nearby properties so we can make any sound we need to make. The studio has all utilities we need and is fully air-conditioned of course. There is a big lawn outside for musical workouts in fresh air, giant rocks to repose, and a few shady places.
Have a look here!:

TESTIMONIALS
“I felt many sounds inside me first time and I felt there is an inner space inside my body. That was an very powerful experience for me. The body wasn’t what I knew before.

Voice Yoga Winter Solstice Retreat

Voice Yoga Winter Solstice Retreat

    聲音瑜伽是探索身體和律動、呼吸、聲音和寧靜的重要途徑。在這個過程中,我們跳脫固有習慣和預期。因此,超越了自我的、隱藏的創造潛能便浮現出來。我們與各種“無意義”的聲音互動,並不強調聲線的優美。這個過程幫助我們超越主體-客體以及思想-身體的二元性,顯化潛意識世界的自我和非理性情感。這個過程好像一面鏡子,幫助我們更清晰的「觀」照自我,諦聽靈魂深處的聲音。 課程設計與帶領 馬克.范.湯格鄰,荷蘭籍聲音探索家,對藝術、科學與耐人尋味的音樂傳統有深入的研究。馬克在劇場、音樂、與舞蹈製作有25年的經歷,為荷蘭萊登大學表演藝術博士。 課程適宜人士 希望豐富他們的聲音,釋放情緒,激發內在潛藏創造性能量的人 歌唱家和那些不敢放聲歌唱的人 演員、音樂家、藝術家或其他從事聲音工作的專業人士 更重要的是:希望體驗聲音瑜伽所帶來的療愈效果的人 語言 正在慢慢過渡以中文為主,可能會有一些英文術語 (語言並不重要,聲音才是我們在課堂上的主要溝通方式)。 聲音瑜伽是什麼? 聲音是我們生命中重要的創造性的力量。人類的生存依賴我們說話、聆聽、發聲和歌唱能力。聲音瑜伽就是要提高對於聲音在我們生活中的重要角色的認知。在課堂上,我們不一定要談論音樂、聲線或任何音樂流派。我們的目的不在於學習任何技能,而是探索各種方式與聲音嬉戲,喚醒我們的耳朵,聆聽我們聲音中的隱藏力量。 在聲音瑜伽中,聲音、沉默和共振都成為自我的一面鏡子。我們製造出來的聲音幫助我們更清楚地觀照自己,聽見心底的呼喚和吶喊。在創造和理解的不斷循環中,我們體驗音樂、聲音、自我以及周圍的環境。 我們做些什麼? 課程通常以沉默開始,透過調息和身體活動,放下紛亂的思緒,將我們的注意力轉移到身體和感官體驗。在自然的一呼一吸之間,將聲音釋放出來。我們聆聽並且遵循內在的韻律,並不嘗試用藝術性的方式歌唱,而是著重體驗身體-思想-聲音之間的聯繫,感受我們的聲音和振動如何超越思想和身體的二元性,將兩者緊密結合。Sound Journeys24th November 2019

An Exploration Of Overtone Singing From All Over The World – 3-Hour Radio-Special by Pieter de Rooij

An Exploration Of Overtone Singing From All Over The World – 3-Hour Radio-Special by Pieter de Rooij

52 views•Jul 5, 2020 31ShareSavePieterdeRooijHolland 7.76K subscribers 3-hour radio special by Pieter de Rooij on overtone singing, commented by overtone singer/ethnomusicologist Mark van Tongeren. Broadcasted by De Concertzender on 17 October 2003. Presenters: Bart Vonk (hour 1) and Paolo Folkertsma (hour 2 and 3). The programme contains a great selection of overtone music from all over the world and most of these recordings you won’t find in any musicstore. Overtone singer and ethnomusicologist Mark van Tongeren explains the physics and metaphysics of overtone singing and demonstrates several techniques of overtone singing. The interview with Mark is in Dutch, but for people who don’t understand Dutch, I’m sure the programme will nevertheless be a worthwhile listen. Have a look at the playlist below and you can already figure out why I can say this.

Acoustics and Perception of Overtone Singing

G Bloothooft  1 E BringmannM van CappellenJ B van LuipenK P Thomassen Affiliations

Abstract

Overtone singing, a technique of Asian origin, is a special type of voice production resulting in a very pronounced, high and separate tone that can be heard over a more or less constant drone. An acoustic analysis is presented of the phenomenon and the results are described in terms of the classical theory of speech production. The overtone sound may be interpreted as the result of an interaction of closely spaced formants. For the lower overtones, these may be the first and second formant, separated from the lower harmonics by a nasal pole-zero pair, as the result of a nasalized articulation shifting from /c/ to /a/, or, as an alternative, the second formant alone, separated from the first formant by the nasal pole-zero pair, again as the result of a nasalized articulation around /c/. For overtones with a frequency higher than 800 Hz, the overtone sound can be explained as a combination of the second and third formant as the result of a careful, retroflex, and rounded articulation from /c/, via schwa /e/ to /y/ and /i/ for the highest overtones. The results indicate a firm and relatively long closure of the glottis during overtone phonation. The corresponding short open duration of the glottis introduces a glottal formant that may enhance the amplitude of the intended overtone. Perception experiments showed that listeners categorized the overtone sounds differently from normally sung vowels, which possibly has its basis in an independent perception of the small bandwidth of the resonance underlying the overtone. Their verbal judgments were in agreement with the presented phonetic-acoustic explanation.

MARK VAN TONGEREN’s Book “OVERTONE SINGING”, 2nd revised edition on sale

Mark van Tongeren21 hrs ·

When I began to delve into overtone singing around 1989 I was stunned to find out a few things:

1) how easy it was to sing a few overtones – and many more overtones as I kept on practising

2) how little there was to be found in all kinds of literature outside ethnomusicology, like books about the voice and vocal techniques, about sound and timbre, about perception and cognition of sound and music psychology

3) how often the few sources that did mention it presented it as something very esoteric, very diffciult, very hard to learn, etc. etc.

After my thesis on Tuvan throat singing (Xoomei in Tuva: New Developments, New dimensions, 1994) I decided to write a book about all kinds of overtone singing. When it came out in 2002 (revised edition, 2004), much of the above points 1) 2) and 3) still rang true.

I strongly believed that the principle of vocal harmonics should be part of any kind of basic sound education, whether focusing on the voice, on acoustics or hearing or music psychology, and that overtone singing was the most powerful way to get this method across. My book was well received, but difficult to obtain (read: to distribute) and overall I think I could say it failed to have the impact I thought such a book should have on educating at least professionals in music, sound and voice about this still-obscure vocal technique. Throughout the years, until now, I do get positive feedback from people who read it. I am now working on a revised and expanded edition).

Still, Overtone Singing: Physics and Metaphysics of Harmonics in East and West is the only book covering a very wide range of aspects of Overtone Singing, from singing and listening and contemplative aspects to old and new traditions. The CD that comes with the book is the most complete anthology of recordings available and includes several useful technical demonstrations of different techniques. A must-have for any serious overtone singer.

For those who cannot wait 1-2 years for the new edition to come out, I have good news. The second edition is on sale now, half the original price plus postage, available directly from Fusica, shipped from The Netherlands or Taiwan.

Mark Van Tongeren & Tran Quang Hai

I learned of Hai’s work on overtone singing in the early 1990s. When I got to know him personally, I was astounded and (I will admit) a bit intimidated by his unbridled energy. He loves to share what he does, and he is in fact overflowing with enthusiasm: for overtone singing, for Vietnamese music, for playing the Jew’s harp and spoons, for ethnomusicology, for his constant travels as a performer and teacher

The most prolific researcher in the field of overtone singing is a man with many faces. His name is Tran Quang Hai and you can call him (and all options are correct): Vietnamese or French; a professional musician or a professional musicologist; an instrumentalist or a singer; an improviser or a composer; a traditional, a popular or an experimental musician (all three will do); an expert in Vietnamese traditional musics and an astute chronicler of its year-to-year development in the past decades

Electroglottogram recordings during overtone singing

ABSTRACT

Overtone singing involves careful articulation, resulting in a closely spaced formant pair (F1/F2 or F2/F3) that enhances the amplitude of the intended overtone considerably. Apart from this articulatory explanation it is likely that the glottal sound source plays an important role during overtone singing, but this has never been explicitly investigated so far. To this end we have made electroglottograms (EGG) from an experienced singer from the Tuva Republic and from a Dutch teacher of overtone singing. Khargira and sygyt techniques and some variants were recorded, for the authentic singer during songs, and for the Dutch singer as systematic scales of overtones. Whereas normally sung vowels showed standard shapes of the EGG, the shape of the EGG deviated considerably during overtone singing, for both singers. Instead of a single full wave per period, the EGG showed modulations during a period with higher frequency components. We will present an analysis of these modulations in relation to the frequency of the amplified overtone. A comparison is made between the two singers and the different and comparable overtone singing techniques they recognized.

 overtone singing
This is a demonstration of overtone singing. Overtone singing is an articulatory technique in which a certain overtone is amplified. You will hear a whistle over the drone of the fundamental and lower harmonics.
The first fragment demonstrates a technique which is especially used in the Western countries. The tongue is very slowly moved from the position of the vowel /O/ to the position of the vowel /i:/, resulting in a special scale of overtones. The fundamental remains the same in all cases! The careful somewhat retroflex articulation brings the second and third formant together, which amplifies the nearby overtone. The overtones 5-16 can be heard. To produce the overtones 3-5, one has to make a nasal sound and articulate from /o:/ to /a:/. The overtone is then amplified by the first formant, while the nasal anti-resonance creates the acoustic distinction between the amplified overtone and the lowest harmonics.
In the subsequent demonstrations, we hear song fragments containing overtone singing, from the Tuva Republic in Mongolia. The technique is not essentially different from the Western technique, but glottal adducation is much higher (almost pressed singing). The Tuva people know a number of techniques, which are related to the fundamental frequency. In these fragments you will hear Sygyt which is typically produced with a pitch of 150-200 Hz. An other technique is Kargyra, with a characteristic low pitch of less than 60 Hz. More information:

overtone singing
Keeping a constant pitch of about 130 Hz, a professional Western performer sings a scale of the overtones 4 to 16. The narrow-band spectrogram shows the amplification of the successive overtones. The lowest overtones are amplified by the first formant, the stepwise increasing resonance is the combination of second and third formant. Higher formants are also visible.
