Description
So..one day i decided to do a track of me and my attempt at using my throat in ways i have not before. i sent a copy of it to my brother. he added stuff and put his poem to it. as you have heard here, RITE OF THROATS
he suggested i put my original track up.
so i finished the end of the song where i left space for him, changed the end guitar a bit...and ..presto!
instant throat singing song.

just a note: i did not use vocal transformer on this song at all. it is just my throat in various frequencies.
your feedback is welcomed.

thank you to richard and the others on macjams that assured me it wasnt as freaky as i thought it might be. gave me the courage to post it.

Superb!
You've got the perfect voice for this! I love this! I'd prefer
it with JUST voices and MAYBE 1 dijeridoo (sp?). But this is
AWESOME.

Superb!
i just happen to have a didgeridoo. i havent played with it in years. i think maybe one day i'll bring it out of storage.
there is just one synth and guitar. hmmmm. maybe i'll try something more minimal.

Richard Feynman is your brother?
Just kidding... I too wanted to hear these two things
(poem and throat singing) separate, as they each have
their own charm and character, and are each compelling
enough as to compete with each other. Thanks for
remastering this by itself, this is awesome! Very primal
and wildly different. Hopefully this will turn other people
on to this ancient singing form. Anyone interested in this
"harmonics-singing" should do some searching on the
web for "Tuva Throat Singing", and will likely find
recordings and books on this old Mongolian art form...
and the weird connection to the late (and amazing)
physicist, RIchard Feynman (famous for discovering
quarks and revealing and testifying about the "o-ring"
problem that brought down the space shuttle Challenger,
and working on the Manhattan project, etc.) Great job on
this Gudkarma, love it! As usual, it is well performed raw
powerful you!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Richard Feynman is your brother?
yes, richard feynman. amazing man. there are many styles of throat singing. i think i've hit on the most.....unrefined style.
like putting a huge sugar cane in your coffe.
some day i'll be granulated.

Thought provoking.
I agree with Sentinel that this would be good to meditate to. So I probably won't play it in the car on the way to work, but I may listen to it at work. helps to distract from tedium. I 'd like to get a dijeridoo.

Wow,
the more I listen to this, the more I like it, It is so very
different but strangely calming.. great meditation music,
the first couple aaaarghs, sound a bit too strained, but as
the track moves along, It becomes almost hypnotic..


Weirdly weirdly good!

gudkarma said 5227 days ago (March 3rd, 2005)
Wow,
ah...actually i didnt re-do re-do tracks. so the start you probably hear my throat warming up.....and then as the song goes...so does my voice become warmer.
i dont like to remove that type of thing. its how the song gets created. i was never good at polishing things. just record them once and thats it.
the usualy way i do things.
hmm.
thanks slimmers.

great harmonics
This is quite cool. Bravo, for pushing your voice so
creatively. Lots of very interesting stuff going on. Y'know
what I think might go really well with the vocals, a severly
tuned down guitar, so the strings rattle and sound deep
and loose. Anyhow, I enjoyed this.

Well, that was, eh...
different....

Actually, "throat singing" or "overtone singing" is a rather
well-known technique. Check out "Huun Huur Tuu". I
heard these guys live and that was quite an experience.

Ambient Blues Throat Poetry
I can't help but imagine a convergence of your talents in these genres. Maybe some sort of mystical and introspective journey across the vast South West deserts of America? Wild and cool!

This is a great submission. I may have to tap your throat for some future project!

your voice was perfect for this. was interesting to listen to - very different i
guess! but then thats was probably ur aim. liked the music - very soothing.
when the beat kicks in, it keeps u hooked. coolio.
