Polyphonic overtone singing - Anna-Maria Hefele

Written by Xavier Gouchet - 08 march 2016 - no comments

Overtune is something natural in all live instruments, including the human voice. But being able to control it to sing two distinct melodies at once is an amazing talent.

In this video, Anna-Maria explains how it works. You can also find lessons on her Youtube channel to learn how to sing like her.

Lucia di Lammermoor (Fifth element remix)

Written by Xavier Gouchet - 21 january 2015 - no comments

Young people these days are truly amazing ! A few years ago, I was surprised to see teenagers singing and simulating the vocoder effect.

This time, a teenage Armenian girl, named Viktoria Hovhanissyan interprets the "Mad Scene" from the Lucia di Lammermoor opera. It's even more impressive when you know that the Inva Mula, the albanian soprano who gives her voice to the Diva Plavalaguna in the film, had to record some voices seperately, which were then mixed later on a computer. When Eric Serra showed her the music sheet, she reportedly said that it was not humanly possible to sing the song as it was written.

While searching around, I found another video of a younger Ukrainian girl performing the same song.

Nick Pitera has an amazing voice, with an incredible range letting him sing both male and female parts in famous songs. Here are the covers I most like from him.
