Hey, foxfish !

I am not sure about this because I'm not really into contemporary playing, but I have the feeling that the guy is just doing a basic "te-ke-wah" (breathing on the "wa") that he's speeding up a lot. Ondrej Smeykal has achieved an impressive mastery of this technique which is at heart of his didgeridoo style, you can hear it in most tracks of his solo albums.

I tried to reproduce what this guy is doing on the video but I am not really satisfied with what I got. I'll ask the french forum to see if anyone can tell me more about this technique, I'll let you know... :wink:


However I have to disagree with DanielSaan : on a purely technical point of view, a wobble is definitely not a dhirrl. They can sometimes give a somewhat similar result when they are played fast, but they are not produced the same way.
A wobble is done by emptying quickly the air out of the mouth with tongue, cheeks or jaws, giving it its very distinguishing "wah" sound. The dhirrl technique mainly makes use of the tongue which curls back from the interdental position to the retroflexed position. You can breath in (or not) during a wobble, but you'll always breath (or not) after the end of the dhirrl.

Cool thanks for your input...I would appreciate any info you can find out :)
Maybe you are right although it is difficult to detect the Too Wah Kee sound within his rhythm?
Here he is again...

In 2007 I played round with the Wobble..... I used a repetition of To-Wa-Ae / To-Wa-Ee but with the "To" on the In Breath to produce a Wobble of sorts.

OK I am pretty sure that the answer to my original question is ... a very fast, basic jaw wobble...
O = breath....ON - TON - TON - ON -TON - TON - ON - TON TON .... repeat ? but it is fast!

I've just been on the phone with the Russian foreign minister, and a breath with more than suffice 'on' the dhirrl.
