He's describing a multiphonic I think from what I can make out in amongst all that French? overdub.

If someone can voice a Fork F (Front F) fingering F note cleanly, then Eric just says to lower the lip a bit and it brings in one of the lower tones into the mix and therefore becomes a multiphonic.

Don't forget, a clean Fork F fingering F note, is a higher overtone and there are tones beneath it that a player eliminates or disturbs to get the Fork F fingering F note clean sounding but these lower beneath tones can be brought back in and result in a multiphonic and higher tones can also be brought in as well for multiphonics.

Humming a note while playing a Fork F etc is another thing that is also used a fair bit.
