Hippocrates Cheng: Overtone Singing
20 Aug 2019
"Young people have the responsibility to defend what we admire and restore valuable treasure,” says Hippocrates Cheng, an alumnus of the Department of Music.
Overtone Singing, originated in Mongolia, requires a singer to create two sounds at the same time. Hippocrates fell in love with it, and following much training, he learnt the difficult technique. He also incorporates overtone singing into his music creation.
“I make music just like the quote from Bruce Lee: be water. You need to think out of the box with a new angle to find a new direction with arts.”
