What are Overtones?
In most cases where a sound is created by natural means (such as a musical instrument or the human voice), a number of higher tones is produced in addition to the fundamental pitch. These higher tones are called overtones, partial tones, or harmonics. The sequence of these tones is called the overtone series, harmonic sequence, or sequence of natural tones. The combination of the fundamental and the overtones is the frequency spectrum of a tone.
The Goal of Overtone Music Network is to present the multiplicity of harmonic and overtone music on one platform. Overtone Music Network would like to facilitate the unity, community and personal ties among musicians and non-musicians.
Overtone Music Network is a business portal for overtone music. Five Network Sponsors made it possible that I could purchase all Ning Premium Services. They paid 60 € per year until June 2009. This includes for you as a musician that Overtone Music Network is a platform to promote your overtone and harmonic music. You can post informations about your concerts and workshops in the Event Calendar and news about CD releases and other informations in your own My Page - for example in your own Blog.

I feature artwork on Photos Home. I do not feature photos - I created some different albums. From time to time I will change the setting on the main page which album appears on the main page. It is possible to show 100 photos at one time on the main page.
I feature one video or sometimes more than one video of each member. Ning doesn't support MySpace videos yet. The preview of related MySpace Videos is unfunctional. It doesn't works on Ning and therefore I will delete every MySpace video in the Video Home Section. You can add your own MySpace Videos on your own My Page or in your own BLOG. Or use the free YouTube to iPod converter
for Windows on DVDvideoSoft.com.
If you have the copyright of videos but the file is greater than 95 MB you can use this converter too! Try at first the preset »iPod - High Quality« by converting the video file to MP4. If the file is greater than 95 MB you can try the preset »Standard Quality«.
