The work of David Hykes focuses on a few throat singing traditions, including Mongolian and Tuvan. In 1975, he combined this singing form and the harmonic series, and five years later founded his Harmonic Awareness practice in meditation. While Hykes was born in New Mexico in 1953, he grew up in the Northwest and lived in N.Y.C. from the mid-'70s through the late '80s. Beginning in the arts in performance and as a filmmaker, Hykes eventually moved toward composition and teaching meditation. He has recorded almost ten CDs with his Harmonic Choir.
