Watched the videos and read what I could. I found the idea about applying the vocal overtone principles to trumpet playing very interesting. Forgive me if I'm misguided here, but in doing this application, and from what you demonstrated in your video, i get the understanding that one can emphasize various partials in a tone that one is playing by manipulating the oral cavity.
As far as tone production goes, and with the extreme ranges (as I heard in the clips) of brass playing, how can I apply the principle to playing those extreme notes? When I try these ideas, it tends to just colour the sound.
Is this approach to this particular aspect of brass playing an exercise in colouring one's tone, or tone (as in "note") production at the extremes?
I understand what you're getting at with the overtone singing (I've been singing for a living since I was 8) and have had a fair amount of practise in it, I just can't seem to get any overtones as such out of my horns. I can get a little partial emphasis in the resonance of my trumpet sound, and nothing at all on my trombone, short of singing into the damn things LOL!
Should I be able to get the notes to pop out with time?
*OFF TOPIC ALERT*
Just on the off-topic stuff, to everyone INCLUDING Sabutin, it would be greatly appreciated if arguing could be put in a separate thread. I really don't see how Sabutin talking about Einstein's string-playing is applicable to the topic, nor Rowuk talking about living in Germany and attending masterclasses a lot are of ANY VALUE to the topic at hand.
I do NOT wish to see 12 more pages of people reacting to this post with MORE GARBAGE, but it would be nice if we could keep posts RELEVANT. (Perhaps a mod can trim the off-topic posts?)
