German multi-disciplinarian Michael Vetter exploring the magical musical tapestry of overtones through the use of voice and Tambura (the Indian instrument responsible for the drone). Popular throughout the Mongolian steppe, overtone singing, too western ears at least, still sounds completely alien and otherworldly and Vetter's exploration here is a great introduction to some of the more complex vocal techniques.
