An experienced teacher, he has now taught thousands of people the techniques of overtone singing and Sound Healing on 4 continents. He is one of a handful of Westerners to master the “Deep Voice” overtone chanting employed by Tibetan monks and Tuvan (Mongolian) singers, which enables him to sing up to four simultaneous notes, with a range of 5 octaves.

The Dome Center
Our Center is a space for retreats, courses and activities in beautiful Natural surroundings, situated in the village of Alcalalí, Alicante, Spain
The Dome Center
In the mornings:
Every morning there will be a routine consisting of 3 Modules. This routine will offer a transformational base during the 2 weeks.
Amu and Oscar will be in charge of this process.
Liberate the tensions and blockages that can make difficult the creative process and prevent us from showing our true selves and our true expression through Movement and Sound
Sound is not static, it’s always in motion. We will learn to accompany this energetic flow with our bodies in a way designed to move in an integrated and articulated movement. We will begin each morning with an exercise routine to tune and activate our body. We’ll also learn different techniques and trainings adaptable to any type of instrumentalist.
INTONATION AND HARMONICS (OVERTONES)
The singer is instrument and player at the same time. The voice is our most intimate and essential instrument. We are all singers so each morning we’ll tune our voices with intoning exercises as a group, which will serve to connect with both individual and group energies.
This space will also serve as a daily practice for the Overtone Singing and Vocal embellishments such as in Flamenco singing.
In this space we will practise, each one with his or her own instrument, scales, embellishments, musical ornamentation and rhythms from a variety of musical styles from around the world.
In the afternoons:
We will develop the Training process though 5 Modules.
In addition, there will be space for Composition, Creation and Rehearsal for the final concert.
OVERTONE SINGING (VOCAL HARMONCS)
With Nestor Kornblum
This Module offers a thorough grounding in the Techniques of Overtone Singing. Nestor will share his knowledge gained in 25 years of working with Overtone Singing.
All participants will learn to sing TWO sounds at the same time. The pure, high, flutelike overtones that appear above the voice can be used to add another dimension to all types of music and particularly in musical improvisation. It is the Voice as Instrument. Students will have the opportunity to practice daily and will achieve a good control of the overtones during the 2 weeks.
There will be suggestions and demonstrations of how Overtone singing can be combined with other forms of singing, from the shamanic to more traditional singing and also in different types of musical improvisation.
SING YOUR BODY (PERCUSSION AS AN ACCOMPANIMENT TO SONG IN TRADITIONAL MUSIC)
with Oscar Jareño
In ancient times people sang as part of their way of Life and it became necessary to accompany these songs and chants with musical instruments. In many cases these instruments were tools or other objects taken from the labours of daily life. Rhythm and the knowledge of rhythm were essential, being transmitted from generation to generation by practical, experiential and oral tradition.
In this Module, we will study some traditional rhythms and songs of the Iberian Peninsula as well as the techniques and interpretation they require, in order to adapt them to our Body and our Moment. This will take place in a completely secure and caring space, where, through a very specific type of bodywork we will have a deep encounter with our own Voice.
FREE YOUR VOICE
with Michele Averard
Michele will lead you on an internal journey that will overcome your limitations and help you discover your True Authentic Voice.
She will share processes and exercises that will help you to recognise and experience yourself as a musical instrument.
Through working with unstructured vocal expression, you will feel empowered to create a new musical form which transmits and projects your own essence and intention. This module will help you to overcome any blockages and fear you may have with expressing your voice.
RAGAS and MANTRAS
Circle for learning and practice of Mantras, Ragas and Sargam (scales) and other basic aspects of Indian music
with Oscar and Amu
Four afternoons will be dedicated to the creation of a circle where we will apply all we have learned and cultivate an awareness of the fundamentals of a musical circle: listening, communication, connection and harmonisation through sessions of musical improvisation.
This will also serve as the space for the learning and creation of the repertoire which will form the basis of our final closing concert.
IN THE EVENINGS:

- Concerts by the facilitators and invited artists
- Open mic evening: A space to share our own songs and compositions
