SONGBOOK album now available

My new EP album SONGBOOK, is now available in my website store.  I want everyone to hear it, so I am offering it at a reduced price for a limited time.

SONGBOOK features an eclectic mix of musical styles, from art song to jazz ballad, all featuring my amazing polyphonic overtone singing.  In two of the songs, I actually bring out discrete overtones on vowels in the lyrics.

I am joined by Jerry Serrano on guitar and Isaac Rivera on percussion.

Be on the Lookout!

My new book Group Singing with Overtones will be finished very soon.  While I look for a publisher, I will make the book available on my website so everyone can get started right away. 

This book is about overtone singing as MUSIC, and it includes learning objectives for overtone singing in a group and provides fun activities, exercises, and compositions to address the objectives.  Hoping many are encouraged to start an on-going overtone singing group in their home towns.

Happy holidays everyone! – 3-part polyphonic overtone singing

New Book in the Works

Having completed my book on composing and the 3 volumes of compositions and instruction for overtone singing, I am now turning my attention to music for group singing.  The new book will include a progressive list of educational objectives for overtone singing in a group and provide several compositions that reinforce the lessons.  I hope that it will encourage people all over the world to establish groups for the enjoyment of overtone singing.

New Composition for Overtone Chorus/Ensemble

I have finished a new piece for overtone singing ensemble.  This is a major piece in 5 movements, scored for four  polyphonic voices SATB or TTBB.  Currently, there aren’t many singers who could take on this piece, but it needed to be done.  And so much more is still possible.  

New Recording

I have posted a new recording on my sound clips page.  Badabi is a swingin’ Blues tune with 4-part polyphonic overtone singing.  www.stuarthinds.com/sound-clips
