In collaboration with the Sensory Biophysics Lab at York, we are examining the vocal tract dynamics of the sygyt style of Tuvan throat singing. We recently had the amazing opportunity to bring the musical troupe Huun Huur Tu to York, where we made high quality audio recordings of all members performing sygyt. 

In collaboration with the MRI facility at York, we were able to capture dynamic 2D sagittal and volumetric 3D images of the vocal tract of Radik Tyulyush. Check here for updates on this exciting project!
