E2, E1, E0 - Human Voice vs. Contrabassoon with E0 Extension

Post  oktavism.com on Wed Apr 06, 2016 5:28 am

EDIT: I'm checking pitches and I noticed that my notes here are a tad between F or E. Either a flat F or a sharp E--that last note goes a bit flat, so closer to E, but the first two notes are closer to F. I apologize for any confusion that might cause.

It's interesting the human voice can produce loud notes in this low of an octave. (I've always know it was possible to fry notes into infinity, but they just keep getting quieter and quieter, so I don't have much interest in those.)

I've added a clip of a contrabassoon at the beginning with an E0 for the sake of comparison, and then myself singing E2, E1, and E0 without amplification or studio magic--just standing in my laundry room.

There's no musical use for notes this low, but I found it interesting that this was even possible. I figured if anyone was interested, it'd be you guys.

I am layering a few different techniques that produce subharmonics... so the second undertone of the subharmonic series. It is a bit complex, but basically it's a controlled rattling of the vocal chords. Unlike fry, it uses a lot of airflow, so it is very loud.

Here is a more clear A0. E0/F0 is really almost too low to detect any tone.



Again, it's mostly just for funsies, since these notes don't really have a musical sound, and wouldn't really be aesthetically pleasing outside of something like deathmetal.

You're like JD Sumner except not a rangewanking piece of shit and have control of notes beyond inaudible hums that are barely picked up, even by mic. Oops did I talk shit? Wink

No but really, really enjoyed that. I began practicing my subharmonics/low singing recently and I usually use your videos for cross-reference for good tone and control. I'm sure I've said that before, but, still. Good stuffo, buddyo.

It's funny that you mention Tuukka--we were just chatting about my little E0 video yesterday. I was pointing out that he had sung a pretty casual E0 on YouTube with just chest/fry mix, while I used all these wild subharmonics to achieve it.

He is certainly a true basso profondo, and he does it all: performs a cappella pop type music, as well as Russian choral music, etc.

I think the lowest I've heard him go in a live performance with a mic is D#1 or so. Crazy.

He also has a beautiful Ab1 at the end of this Rachmaninov with an all male choir. Breathtaking!

Thanks for the kind words! If you hadn't noticed, I really like low notes. Yeah!

A2? I mean, I understand E2 but, pretty much most men can sing an A2 p easy, even tenors. Much less such a low baritone like him.

Haha, well you guys have all the high notes. I'm not much of a falsetto or whistle guy, so the best I can manage in a more "chest" register is Bb4.... haha.

Okay, now that's just not fair. How can someone sound that good down low and still maintain a really strong and resonant chest sound even at the top of their high register (which is still way higher than I can go on my best days).

You have an incredible voice, my friend, and I'm not saying that lightly. You really do. Smile

I have trouble below C3 lol. To me, a well projected A2 is super impressive  Razz

Thank you for the kind words! Especially about my "high" notes like Bb4. I don't usually get compliments on highs!

I have been singing casually since I was a child... singing congregationally in church, and then just singing while I played my guitar throughout high school.

I never had any voice lessons, have never sung in a choir, or anything like that. I'd like to someday, but I'm quite busy with work at the moment. I'd love to find a choir that performed Russian repertoire with low bass and use my bass abilities there, but I don't know if I'm good enough yet, and there aren't any choirs like that in my area right now anyway.

I just turned 30. I'm not sure of my voice type. It would just depend on the genre of music I suppose--voice types are defined in such radically different ways these days that I try not to worry about it too much.

I've heard him call himself a bass-baritone before, and I'd say that's pretty accurate. His highs still have a lot of color that's really reminiscent of a baritone. He's just got pretty decent control down there.
