Alas!

I have posted a new recording on my sound clips page.  Alas! is inspired by the lute songs of John Dowland.  The bassoonist in the recording is Richard Meek.  http://www.stuarthinds.com/sound-clips/

The Overtone Singing Virtuoso

My new book is finished! “The Overtone Singing Virtuoso” is 12 songs for advanced level polyphonic overtone singing with substantial commentary and instruction.

This completes the trilogy of instructional books for overtone singing, progressing from beginning level with steady fundamental to advanced level polyphonic overtone singing:

1. Making Music with Overtone Singing (free download at stuarthinds.com)
2. An Overtone Experience/Eine Oberton Erfahrung (published by Traumzeit)
3. The Overtone Singing Virtuoso

Please share this news with anyone who might be interested, and don’t forget that the first book is free.

Brilliant Bassoonery

Big thanks to Richard Meek for recording the bassoon parts for my compositions Alas! and What It Is, two of my favorite pieces.  Richard is an outstanding musician and has always supported new music.

Holiday Greeting

Here is my annual musical holiday greeting. Enjoy!

The Spice of Life

I see that it has been a while since my last post, but it’s not for lack of news, just not very interesting news. Since completing my latest book, “Making Music with Overtone Singing,” I have been busy with a wide variety of busy work and back burner tasks that have been waiting for my attention. It has actually been quite enjoyable. I really enjoy working in my new shed and being there probably increases my production. Good things are on the way.

Anyway, I’ll try to do better, and keep following me on Facebook as well as my website. Thanks!

Making Music with Overtone Singing

I want everybody to have my new book, so I’m giving it away for free! “Making Music with Overtone Singing” includes lessons, exercises, and 14 songs from easy to advanced skill level. Download it today at my website:

A Lot To Do

My special concert with Indian singer Nanda Banerjee was a great success!  Really enjoyed making music with some of my favorite musicians: Hsin-Jung Tsai, Paul English, Max Dyer, Patrick Moore and new friend Brandon Bell.

Now I am working on some projects that have been on the back burner for a while:  finishing my new book of pieces for overtone singing with steady fundamental and recording all the pieces, composing a new piece for Spektrum, and working on a possible new album.  Lots to do!
