MuOM, Ecstatic Voices
MuOM es un Grupo vocal especializado en el canto difónico.
MuOM es la expresión sonora de la idea de que hay una unidad fundamental que subyace a la aparente multiplicidad.
MuOM es Nueva Música Sacra. Música que habla del infinito sin nombrarlo. La banda sonora de una espiritualidad que se ha liberado de la religión.
MuOM es música atemporal, música sin ritmo que amalgama tradiciones, estéticas y tiempos distintos.
MuOM propone un retorno a la pureza del sonido. Voces desnudas que sostienen una sola nota hasta el infinito.
MuOM provoca la reminiscencia de la inocencia que todos compartimos. Despierta en nosotros la memoria de algo perfecto, puro.
La música de MuOM ha sido descrita por muchos como sanadora, celestial y transformadora.
MuOM is an overtone singing chamber choir, formed through the desire to create beauty by exploring new possibilities of the voice. A group of singers who vibrate their souls to resonate in unison, creating a harmony that transcends them.
Our intention is to dissolve the individual voice in the collective pure sound, inviting the listener to feel with us with the only fundamental frequency that we all share; the frequency of the present.
Overtones, also known as harmonics, are found in all sounds. The melodies and harmonies that are possible when playing and composing with harmonics, they resonate in our body as a living, timeless memory of nesting and expansion that connects us with ourselves, and with the listeners, a fundamental part of our concerts.
Mu, of Zen Buddhism, means the total void where all potential is found.
Om, the sacred Hindu syllable, is the primordial sound from which all others arise.
It is a voice modulation technique that allows us to sing musical intervals that are clearly perceptible – that is to say, two notes at the same time; a fundamental note and one of its harmonics. You can create melodies and harmonies by combining fundamentals and their harmonics.
Ancestors of overtone singing are found all over the world, especially in Central Asia (Tuva, Altai, Kazakhstan, Mongolia), where it is linked to the nomadic and shamanic culture.
It has intertwining planes which are meditative, healing and musical. Musical composition based upon harmonics is called spectral music.
In the 1970s, virtuoso David Hykes and his Harmonic Choir, used this technique in a choral context, with a spectacular contrast between consonance and dissonance.
MuOM choir’s “Ecstatic Voices” reinterprets this concept with its own spectral pieces – long chords that are kept alive thanks to the movement of harmonics and the nuances of the human voice.
