He runs a throat-harmonic-overtone singing site (khoomei.com), where enthusiasts, or Khoo-Maniacs, can download video lessons. He is the founder of the International Association for Harmonic singing. He also performs with the ensembles Big Sky as a guitarist, throat-singer, producer, and engineer; and the Overtone Orchestra as a throat-singer, didgeridoo player, percussionist.
