Next month, on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 September, I’ll be in Hong Kong to teach a workshop of overtone singing. We will work with themes such as breathing, resonance, vowels, sound meditation, healing potential of the voice, and of course overtone singing techniques. In other words, a fine, balanced combination of factual knowledge about vibration and sound as an energy tool and exercises and meditations to develop your senses and connect deeper with your entire being through sound.
On Day 1 we forget everyting we know about sound and voice and make a fresh start. Surprisingly, by doing less than we normally do, we notice more – and begin to know more. We return to a primary knowledge at the centre of the body-mind. You explore the hidden dimensions of your voice through new techniques of hearing, sounding and singing.
On Day 2 we continue to connect deeper and wider with the sounding body within. We explore more techniques to sing overtones and can begin to hear them in our own mouths. By losing control of the voice, we find new paths of sound, which also means new paths of the self – a therapeutic experience. Experiencing yourself and others as musical human beings, you encounter new possibilities, new barriers, new connections …. Like Day 1, we end with a Q& A and a guided group improvisation.
