The panorama of musical vocalization stretches across cultural time and space, from simple songs and chants to the most elaborate art music for chorus and orchestra. It's a medium that continues to evolve, incorporating the past while it forges into the future.
The origins of the Central Asian tradition of harmonic chanting or "overtone" singing are lost in time, but are alive today, both in source cultures like Tuva and Tibet, and in the work of experimental singers and composers.
On this transmission of Hearts of Space, a journey into the ghostly, floating world of harmonic singing called SPECTRAL VOICES. Music is by CHARLES B. KIM, TRIO MEDIEVAL, PAULINE OLIVEROS, STUART DEMPTER & PANAIOTIS, JIM COLE & SPECTRAL VOICES, SEATTLE HARMONIC VOICES, and SANCTUARY.
