    Her? I thought it was a guy!

    I'm getting a 'Deliverance' vibe from that banjo though!

    I get that Deliverance vibe, too. I thought they might be singing about clubbing baby seals to death or butchering a whale or some such traditional passtime. Am I being too cynical?

    With his mastery of the dark arts of circular breathing and multiphonics, I was kind of expecting the crucifix to fall and strike him down:evil:

    That's just freaky!

    What's actually happening there? Is he singing with the instrument or something?

    Nobody is nailed on the cross, it's waiting for him.

    No, he's playing the series over the fundamental (maybe pedal notes), 8ve(2), 12th(3), 15th(4), etc.
    It is just an acoustic phenomenum, every sound is made like this in the nature, every complexe sound has got harmonics, and they are always the same (it's a serie).

    A fundamental for exemple...

    Call it an A (20 Hz)

    A 20 Hz (1st pedal note)
    A 40 Hz (2nd harmonic, your C on the trumpet)
    E 60 Hz (3rd harmonic, your G)
    A 80 Hz (4th your C)
    C# 100 Hz (5th your E)
    E 120 Hz (6th your G)
    G (a little bit flat) 140 Hz (7th your fake Bb, don't play it)

    Then after that you've got a scale.

    On your trumpet : C D E F# G A Bb B C (the scale of a natural baroque trumpet)

    Elephants have got the same in their nose.

    Don't pay attention about the frequences, I don't know what a 20 Hz note is.

    I found it, 20 Hz is a G

    So... G G D G B D F G A B C# D E F F# G
    Harmonics : 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16
    1 is the fundamental, the root... I don't know how to explain it.

    I can lie and say I was thinking in Bb !!! Arffff

    The lama makes a wide range of sounds: humming, snort, clicking, grumbling, screeching, alarm call, and orgling, which is a guttural growl used during the breeding time: orgling is multiphonic.
