泛音是音樂演奏中一種特殊的演奏方式,以分段震動不同頻率,可達到同時發出兩種音的效果。Mark van Tongeren熱愛研究泛音,他認為泛音原本就存在人類原本說話的聲響裡,只是我們沒有用「心」和「知覺」去感受它,就像面對這個過多雜訊干擾的世界。透過學習泛音,我們不但更加了解聲音的奧妙,更能重新認識更本質的自己。 Overtone singing is a special type of performance that leverages different frequencies of vibration to produce two kinds of sound. Mark van Tongeren’s passion is the study of harmonics. He believes that overtone is already in the human voice; It’s just a matter of using our hearts and our conscious to recognize it. Through overtone singing, we can better understand the wonders of sound, and the dynamic capabilities of our voices. —– Mark Van Tongeren 是一個充滿熱情的聲音探索者。他結合了藝術,科技以及網路技巧在他的作品裡。透過他靈巧的耳朵,多變的聲音以及原創的洞見,他領導著人們探索自己聲音的不同面向。作為一個受過訓練的民族音樂家,Mark持續的結合瑜珈動作,帶領學生去感受,理解泛音以及喉嚨發聲背後的理論。 Mark Van Tongeren is a passionate sound explorer who combines art, science, and contemplative practices into his work. Using his fine ears, versatile voice, and original insights as his primary tools, he guides people in discovering different dimensions to their own sounds. As a trained ethnomusicologist, Mark seamlessly combines yoga postures and leads students to explore, feel and understand the theory behind overtone or throat singing. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

… From the 2002 Smithsonian Folklife Festival. For those who think the human voice can produce only one note at a time, the resonant harmonies of throat-singing are surprising. In throat-singing, a singer can produce two or more notes simultaneously through a specialized vocalization technique taking advantage of the throats resonance characteristics. Singers use a form of circular breathing which allows them to sustain multiple notes for long periods of time. Young Tuvan singers are trained from childhood through a sort of apprentice system to use the folds of the throat as reverberation chambers. Mark van Tongeren, an ethnomusicologist specializing in khöömei throat-singing, teaches the technique.
