could not be cooler

this is a link post, because my friend Rob (Pomona '05, natch) just posted some amazing posts to his blog. he's on a scholarly tour of the world in search of throat-singing, multi-harmonic vocal stuff, and the like, and his most recent stop is in Sardenia to witness the unbelievable singing that monks there do for Easter. the four voices produce a fifth, 'virtual' voice above them. harmonics, math, religion, otherworldliness, ritual, candlelight, sound, ambience (in its purest sense). this completely blew me away. and I'm a visual person. check it out: link.
