Throat singing. I love it! I know, my voice does not match my face. That was a joke, BTW. My throat hurts. I'll go to bed soon. I hope the embedded thingy works.
Where did you learn the technique... I'd guess it was probably while living in Alaska?
I've always been intrigued by throat singing... thinking "this must be impossible!"
Throat singing also makes me think of the Australian didjeridu (variant spellings):
The only place I have heard live the fantastic (maybe, eerie) music coming from a didjeridu is that produced by visiting performers along the walking street in Copenhagen!
YouTube, however, carries a number of examples of this exotic instrument... Here's one:
Also... I must learn how you embedded this link. The only embedding I know how to do are YouTube clips :(
Actually, the Alaskan Inuit throat singing is very different from Mongolian throat singing. I learned it just from reading on the internet. it's actually very easy to do once you're used to it. The sound I was making was the front whistle with my tongue and lips. There is also the deep whistle made only with the throat, but it doesn't sound as good.
Also, Mongolian throat singing is often accompanied by the Morin Khuur. Here is my favorite video of the combination:
But, my favorite instrument is Greek bouzouki.
I embedded this with a code the web site gave me. I don't know how to embed things, either.
...between those 2 clips. The last one sounded perfect for a Halloween... orgy?
The first was very interesting; I liked very much the tonalities of the stringed instrument. His voice range was nothing short of amazing! I was hearing very high frequency overtones on the deep bass. I wonder if these were there from the beginning, or were the overtones a distortion product in recording/playback?
Btw... the artist in the first clip leaves me with the impression that he's quite young; his dress, however, suggests otherwise?
the second clip is my signature. It's one of my favorite songs. I have quite a disturbing taste in music.
