H6-11: AUDIOTAPE 60 MIN - MUSIC OF TIBET

h6-11a

Additional Info

  • ID Code: H6-11
  • Purpose: Illustrate manipulation of vocal formants.
  • Description: Certain Tibetan monks are able to manipulate their vocal formants so that they sound like they are singing two notes at the same time. They sing a fundamental frequency of about 70 Hz, and manipulate their vocal system to produce formants at the fifth, tenth, etc. harmonics of 70 Hz. Because of this emphasis a note at 5x70Hz or 350 Hz sounds, two octaves and a major third above the fundamental.
