About

Secret Sounds refers to the mysterious 'sounds within sounds' heard in the playing of jew's harps (or mouth harps) and in throat-singing. A performer's mouth cavity amplifies specific harmonics of a fundamental tone creating a higher, more subtle strata of sound.

The 2001 Secret Sounds project brought to Wellington, New Zealand, three international artists: Mark van Tongeren (Netherlands), Leo Tadagawa (Japan) and Benicio Sokkong (Philippines). These artists, during a three-month residency, worked with numerous New Zealand composers and performers. This CD is a compilation of recordings from some of the ensuing concerts.

Concurrent with the concerts the Adam Gallery hosted an exhibition of jews harps of many cultures, drawn from personal collection of Leo Tadagawa. The CD-ROM included here was a part of that exhibition.
