I once met one very special oak in Denmark. This oak must be over 800 years old now! I met this giant while I was studying singing in Denmark. It had a big cavity in its trunk, so big that one could seek protection in it. The oak felt almost like stone, yet it was alive and it had witnessed all those centuries and given shelter to all those people and animals. The feeling was so calm, almost indifferent, very different than the feeling of young trees, which are full of dense life.
Meet Riikka Hänninen, a Finnish singer and fan of myNoise. The ever-evolving song you are currently listening to is inspired by her teacher, the singer Iegor Reznikoff, who researches and teaches the sacred arts and ancient ways of singing. Reznikoff developed his own approach to harmonic singing based on long and quiet tones and rich overtones. Nature's own harmonies and overtones are the source of Riikka's healing songs. For her, singing or listening to harmonic chant feels like drinking spring water instead of tap water.
