Local Classical Music Legend Stuart Hinds to Perform Friday [VIDEO]

Local classical music practitioner Stuart Hinds is renowned for his innovative vocal technique, and this Friday presents an excellent opportunity to hear him live.

The event, titled Antiqua Nova, will be at 7:30pm in the Texas Tech University Museum auditorium. The date corresponds to the First Friday Art Trail, so people will have the opportunity to swing by after viewing the exhibits at 6pm. Admission is free and open to the public.

Hinds practices a technique called “overtone singing,” which is a method of vocal manipulation that produces two simultaneous tones, allowing a single individual to harmonize his/her own voice.

The style originated in Mongolia, but Hinds’ technique employs more than simple guttural drones. He has honed the artform to an extent that actual counterpoint is produced: a melodic line that moves in complementary and opposing motions to a lower bass line.

Mr. Hinds’ method is a unique synthesis of modern and traditional, incorporating stylistic borrowing from the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Contemporary eras. He will be joined by keyboardist Ruth Holmes and bassoonist Richard Meek. For more information, visit Stuart Hinds’ website here:
