Most of these songs are on Pentatonix's channel or his own personal channel, however, here are a couple special exceptions:

Also: a special talent: overtone singing similar to tuvan throat singing:

I think he is referring to the higher pitched overtone singing avi does.

That's exactly what I was referring to, hah. I was debating whether to write "overtone singing" or "throat singing". I guess I'll write the former now.

Doesn't that mean that it's an harmonic above the note he's "really" singing?
Btw, do you have a link?

Yeah, pretty much. It's a note he's definitely producing though, so it counts, though it's obviously blue.





Also, if you could help me pitch those a bit better, I would appreciate it. I only got a few of the notes.

I disagree. He's producing a note, and this note has audible overtones. The one in the first video hovers around A3 and B♭3, while the overtones are mostly C♯-D and top at an F (not sure if fifth or sixth octave).
The one in the second video hovers between F♯3 and G3, and I hear the overtones topping at a sharp B♭- again, not sure about the octave.
so it counts, though it's obviously blue.
I wouldn't be sure about that either. I mean, it sounds super cool and I guess you could include one of them in a vocal range video for the lulz but is it countable as a vocal note? From what I understand of how these sounds are formed, the harmonics are always "there" but guys like Avi manage to make them resonate separately from the actual note they're producing. If that's true, I don't see how the overtone can be counted as a vocal note: a vocal note is there, but this isn't it.
Personally, I'd suggest putting the video in the OP as a demonstration of the cool stuff this guy can do, but not count the vocal notes in these two performances because they're not range-significant, and not count the overtones as vocal notes because they aren't.

Additional songs

Post  Arcustangens on Fri Feb 21, 2014 10:01 pm

There are some other remarkable notes I'd like to add... Is it possible for me to edit the original post?
Here are the songs:

(low)

G1 in "Natural Disaster"
A1 in "Love again"
B1 in "Pusher Love Girl"
C2 in "Carol of the Bells" and on Sesame Street
D2 in "Little Drummer Boy" and in "Evolution of Music" (not sure if I pitched that one right... just listen to the syllable 've' of "Salve Regina" at the beginning

(high)

C4 in "Run to you"
C#4 in "I need your love"
E4 in "Little Drummer Boy" (unsure again, check line "The ox and lamb kept time")

The 'sung range' would also have to be changed to G1-E4

Thank you for editing or replying in advanve.

PS: I seem instable of finding the C#1 in "You da one"... could anyone tell me the time where i can find it?

I guess only the one who started the thread can edit it, but if sees your update, he can copy and paste it over.
Also, I'd like to add a few more notes:

(low)
F#1 in "Natural Disaster" Live
A1 in "Hey Momma"
A#1 in "The Wizard of Ahhs"
B1 in "Lets Get It On", "Daft Punk"
D2 in "Evolution of Music" (not just on Salve Regina, but multiple times)
D#2 in "Little Drummer Boy" (it's a D#2, not a D2)

(high)
D4 in "Say Something"
D#4 in "Little Drummer Boy"
B4 in an interview

I am also unable to find the C#1 ... he does, however, sing an E♭1 in vocal fry in some sort of vlog kind of video with Scott Hoying.
On a sidenote regarding the overtone singing he does, I wouldn't count it as his vocal range, since it's not his vocal cords that produce the high pitches, but the cavities in his mouth.

This would make his vocal range:
Vocal type: Bass (in my opinion)
Sung Range: F#1 - D#4
Total Range: E♭1 - B4

Low note in Little Drummer Boy

Post  Arcustangens on Thu May 01, 2014 12:29 pm

Indeed, the song is written in G# major, not A major. He thus hits the D#2 multiple times, but a single time, he goes down to the C#2 in the line "pa rum pum pum pum".

Sing is the wrong word here.

Allow me to correct myself:

".. he does, however, produce a sound pitched at an E♭1 in vocal fry"

The short High Tenor guy in Penatonix deserves a thread. His voice is incredible.
