The Yodel Language

parsifalrain, December 08, 2018
Yodeling is probably as old as humanity.
Techniques have been developed in all mountainous regions of the world to acoustically bridge distances with calls.
People have been using it since prehistoric times.
Not only in the Alps was communicated from alpine pasture to alpine pasture with Alpcall or Juchzer or livestock attracted with a cattle call.
From this, yodeling developed in the course of time as a form of singing.
How old yodelling really is, however, can only be assumed.
There is a lack of archaeological evidence and reports that could inform us.

Not to be confused is the yodel with the 'Juchitzer', a short, melodious scream as an expression of joie de vivre, whereby the Juchitzer can change into the yodel and probably also forms its basic form.

A yodel is, according to dictionary definition, textless singing on phonetic syllables, characterized by rapid flipping between chest and head voice (falsetto) as well as large interval jumps.
Good yodelers are actually vocal acrobats who master large interval jumps and a wide range of tones.
The word yodel derived from this describes both this singing and the person who yodels.
The stark contrasts in pitch ensure that they are easily audible and distinguishable even across valleys and mountains.
Thus various forms of communication of yodeling with shouting developed, e.g. to lure the cattle or to transmit messages to each other.

Juchitzer (translates in the sense of shouting for joy)

Yodeling is so rich in variations that it can transmit a large amount of different signals.
The collection of the ethnomusicologist Josef Pommer, who published 444 yodels and juchzers from Styria and the Styrian-Austrian border region in 1902, bears witness to this diversity.

When a solo yodeller begins to sing a slow sequence of notes, other yodellers hum along with the corresponding tone, tune into the melody and spontaneously shape it - then we listen to a natural yodelling song.
In this original way, one to five-part yodelling songs without words are sung in various mountain regions of Switzerland.
In the Muota Valley, for example, the 'Jüüzli' consists of two to three voices, while the 'Zäuerli' or 'Ruggusserli' in Appenzell are polyphonic natural yodels that are often improvised spontaneously.
At festivities or special occasions, polyphonic natural yodels are often accompanied by Talerschwingen or jingle bells (small alpine bells).

The special thing about the natural tone series of the natural yodels is the eleventh tone; the natural tone, or alphorn fa.
This peculiar tone sounds neither as 'f' nor as 'f sharp' in the C major tone series, but lies somewhere in between.
This 'Fa' sounds habitual to many ears, as since the 18th Century, when the 'well-tempered' tuning was introduced, this tone has disappeared from the common tone series.

In the rural regions of Austria (as well as in Switzerland and Bavaria) Folk Music is still a natural part of Life and Customs.
From New Year's Brass Music to Christmas, traditional music-making is cultivated.
Like the 'Paschen', zuhipaschen a rhythmic clapping to the Ländler (a kind of barn-dance here from Zillertal  - video here), which is particularly cultivated in the Salzkammergut, yodelling also sounds through the valleys and places where people have preserved their traditions.

Yodelling in town is rather unusual.
However, the photojournalist Maria Nasswetter yodels so passionately that she wanted to bring her hobby to the big city.
So she organized the 'Yodeling to go' in Vienna https://www.jodlerin.at/ (or rather) , a yodel meeting place to get to know other yodelers.
On every first Tuesday of the month, hobby yodelers meet in an inn in Ottakring and sing together.
These meetings are not yodel courses, but only a meeting place for interested people and experts.

Unfortunately, yodelling, which used to be an artistic language for communicating from one side of the valley to the other, has all too often degenerated into pure 'pseudo folklore'.
In order to revive the true tradition, the Königsleitner Jodelwanderweg (yodel-trail) was opened on 18 August 2012 in Wald im Pinzgau.
Here, local music lovers and tourists have tried to breathe new Life into an old Tradition.
After a yodel seminar, hotelier and singer Christian Eder is convinced that 'everyone can yodel' and would like to show all visitors to the Königsleitner Jodelwanderweg the pleasure of yodeling.
The world record in (permanent) yodeling is currently held by the Austrian Roland Roßkogler with 14 hours 37 minutes.

Der Pasch ist der Herzschlag des Salzkammerguts
'Seltsam schauen sie drein.
Die Gesichter verzerrt, der Blick in das Nirgendwo des sogenannten 'Narr'nkastls' gerichtet.
Es ist der Ausdruck höchster Konzentration'.
