Vocal Games

Yeah so consider this my holiday post, as I'll be travelling for the next week+ so here's my send off to 2006.

Jeux Vocaux Des Inuit

90 recordings of Inuit vocal games. These games were made up to pass the time up the colder parts of the world. Basically, you make these silly noise patterns at each other and the one who laughs first loses, so, most of these tracks end with lots of laughing. Because laughter warms you up. Fascinating and fun.

Ami Yoshida - Tiger Thrush

I am unsure as to the current commerical availability of this exceptionally unique and often daring recording of short, vocal performance/compositions by Ami Yoshida (she's credited w/voice + computer). 99 bizarre and essential tracks of new vocal improv. hooray.

thanx for another wonderful post zhoa.

another aspect of inuit throat games is that the sound one player makes is sent directly into the other person's mouth and that person changes the shape of their mouth to change the sound. I've played in this way with my friend 'stinky'. Although I had much fun I recommend brushing your teeth before you play these games.

what great post !!!!!
thanks!!!!!!!

nono you got the wrong man. I'm not responsible for this delightful offering -- it is bb who has conjoured up these wintry game-sounds -- all the thanks to him.

I haven't heard this but I wonder if there is much circular breathing because the only eskimo song cycles I'd heard previously was this continuous rising and falling of voices drifting in and out of consciousness... they stay up all night singing to eachother in the deepest of winter - wrapped in blankets, hugging eachother, nose to nose, so that the warm air is not wasted, but recycled.

and i had a huge collection of tapes from this program. but yeah only a taperecorder i need now.

A General Comment - I Love your blog! Such non-mainstream, esoteric, obscure gems. You have a wonderful ear.

I've only been online for the last 12 months, and it took me 10 to find you. Am I too late for "Vocal Games"? Download says file is unavailable. It looks fascinating and just my bag. Thank you.

Anonymous said...

any chance of re-upping the INUIT vocal games? I used to have this on cassette, and I loved it.

thanks for some great choices...

P.Gilgamesh said...

Greetings y'all! LOVE your site, an amazing mix of the world in all its luscious sonic glory---THANKS! Just wondering: would you mind re-upping "Jeux Vocaux Des Inuit"? It's way outta print, and hard to find anywhere. I'm just itchin' to hear more! May All Good Things be yours...
