“Obertongesang – wenn Formanten zu Töne werden” (overtone singing – when formants turn into tones) is the title of my contribution to this proceedings (page 19-23). In 2015, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the German Federal Association of Clinical Speech Scientists, I was invited to speak in Halle (Saale) as a lecturer on aspects of overtone singing that are relevant for clinical speech scientists:

  1. Hearing of partial tones from the vocal spectrum
  2. Development of the fine motor skills of the root of the tongue
  3. New understanding of formants
  4. Empathic hearing

From the cover text

The work on the voice, whether diagnostic, therapeutic, preventive or restorative, is and remains one of the core areas of clinical speech science. The authors of this volume provide exemplary information about current voice research results, interdisciplinary projects and central as well as peripheral aspects of voice, its variability, disease, diagnostics and therapy. For example, it deals with the child’s handling of the voice, voice training for transsexuals, the aesthetics of radio voices and special phenomena such as yodelling or overtone singing.
