A New Composition

Just finished a new composition for solo voice called ‘Borbangnadyr.’ Really challenging and fun to sing! The title comes from the name of a specific Tuvan throatsinging technique in which the singer imitates the sound of a running stream, but there is no actual borbangnadyr (the technique) in my piece.  I use my polyphonic overtone singing to create musical textures that evoke sights and sounds of springs, streams, and rivers.  The piece is related to my duo ‘Borbangnadyr for Two,’ and I also plan to make a choral work based on this idea.
