How To Throat-Sing
STEP 5: The volume of the resonator
The melody part of throat-singing is produced by changing
the volume of the resonant chamber. To do this, move the central
part of your tongue up and down without detaching the side parts
of your tongue from the roof of the mouth (or side-teeth), except
of course for the vent hole you made in the previous step. Don't collapse
the chamber completely: you just make it flatter or rounder.
Try to change the volume as mentioned above while making the "hu"- noise
(pink noise) constantly. You will hear the
pitch of the noise changing.
(Dan Bennett adds:
the volume of air in front of the tongue is also involved in
resonance. This means that some styles of throat-singing rely on
the position of the lips for adjusting the pitch of the melody.)
Special thanks to Dan.
He translated all of these instructions.
