Customize Your Own Tibetan Choir In This Browser App
Have you ever encountered the odd sonic phenomenon that is throat singing? This browser app, Tibetan Choir, lets you space out to the soothing sounds of overtone throat singing, and comes with an adjustable 10 band EQ as well.
From information provided on the site in regards to throat singing:
- Drones are built from a single, unbroken, musical note − sometimes a simple chord. Their harmonic content is the only characteristic evolving with time. Therefore, drones constantly balance listeners between two hearing states: the unchanging and steady sound, and the ever-evolving tone.
- The ever-evolving texture gives your mind something to focus on, while the constant pitch makes it virtually impossible to concentrate on anything but the sound you hear.
- Overtone – harmonic or throat – singing is a technique of manipulating the mouth and throat to bring out harmonic overtones of the natural voice that resemble a whistle or growl. Various ceremonies and prayers call for throat singing in Tibetan Buddhism, often with more than one monk chanting at a time, holding to the lower pitches possible in throat singing.
- This sound generator is calibrated and outputs a pink-like spectrum when the sliders are horizontally aligned. Calibration is unique to this website, and can be used to compensate for your own hearing, audio equipment, and listening environment deficiencies: follow our Calibration Procedure once, then access Your Hearing Curve from the right column.
The Tibetan Choir app also supplies a heap of various presets including Dreaming, Aaahs, Whistle, Etheral, Trance and much more. In addition, there are customizable calibration controls that allow you to hone in on the perfect frequencies for your listening environment. This would definitely be great to fall asleep too!
