Easy beginner multiphonics and bisbigliando

Hey,
Wondering if there are some obvious easy multiphonics on alto and/or tenor--like what you would teach to a young beginner. Likewise with bisbigliando (colored trill), or any other really solid extended technique.. If you could tell me the fingering AND the sounding pitches of the multiphonic (or point me to where I can hear it on the internet) so that it can be notated, I'd be very grateful. I'm a composer, and unfortunately not a sax player, and the best thing would be to talk to a sax player in person, but I'm unable to for the time being. So you're all my next best hope!
Thanks

See the link at the top of the page called Taming The Saxaophone, click on there, then on Tone & Effects. You'll see the multiphonics page listed on the left. It has fingering and sound files.

I'm not too sure about bisbigliando though.
