I believe that an article back in the 80's or earlier in the IDRS Journal discussed this.
There are also what I call sub-tones which can be produced by lipping the low Bb down with a relaxed embouchure at the tip. I've done this on several contemporary pieces. One is by a Hungarian composer and the other work is by Robert Turner that I recorded for the CBC called Shadow Pieces.
I've heard that Leonard Sharrow was very good at this technique
