I'm not listening to anything at the moment, but last night I busted out Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness by Smashing Pumpkins.

Stephen Stills - Treetop Flyer.
I have the Stills Alone album on my iPod. I have no idea of the quality of the song in this video. The PC at work doesn't have speakers, and I'm too lazy to plug my headphones into the back just to verify a song link for you silly people.

Stumbled upon this incredible video tonight! I don't even remember where I saw this before, on TV probably. Only once. Never since. I have been thinking about it for YEARS. Trying on my own to make my voice do this. Without the slightest hint of success I might add.
What it is, is making your vocal chords resonate at an harmonic pitch. They are chords after all, similar to strings on a guitar. If you just touch a guitar string at certain intervals, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4 etc., of the total length, it plays a "harmonic", a different higher pitched tone. It divides how the string vibrates by that interval. At the 12th fret on a guitar (halfway) it divides the vibration by two. At the 7th fret it divides it by three. Other places by four, five, etc.
The best part is you can change the length of your vocals chords! At will, with muscle-memory... which would be some acid-fueled dream on a guitar!
ALL of the sound you hear, in this video, is the two... TWO strings on his instrument, and this guy singing!

"Sister Ray" by the Velvet Underground. Very, very loud. Because it's been one of those weeks.
Tuvan throat music? OK, I'm impressed. Mainly I'm impressed by the extent of knowledge posters on this thread bring to whatever topic happens to be under discussion.
I'm also glad to know I'm not alone in wondering what 20 generations of Yak herding leads a person to come up with to pass the time.
