The Seattle Harmonic Voices is an a capella vocal ensemble dedicated to expanding the possibilities of the human voice through overtone singing.
SHV, directed by Stephen Fandrich, was founded in the fall of 1999, and has produced three recordings, developed notated scores, and presented many of its own intimate performances and workshops in the U.S. and Canada. SHV is honored to have been featured at Town Hall Seattle (Lift Every Voice), On The Boards (12 Minutes Max), the Center for Spiritual Living (Seattle Sacred Music Festival), The Cornish Series at Cornish College of the Arts ( “Ringing Ringing”, a composition for Javanese gamelan and overtone-choir, performed by SHV with Gamalan Pacifica), the Centrum Foundation at Fort Warden State Park, the Whidbey Institute, the Arts in Nature Festival, Samadhi Yoga (Harmonic Immersion I, “Music for Corpses”), KBCS, KUOW, and live for Sonarchy Radio (produced by Jack Straw) on KEXP, an award winning international webcast station.
The music of the Seattle Harmonic Voices is primarily slow, meditative and focused resonance with reverence to modern forms of overtone singing, to musical elements of other cultures, stochastic music, free and structured improvisation, mimesis, and to the crafted world of just-intonation and thru-composition.
Stephen Fandrich (Director)
