Effects of Physical Shape and Movement on Vocal Function and Resonance

April 08 2013 to May 17 2013

Artist-in-Residence:

To date, very little is known via objective data about the effects of physical movement and shape on vocal function and resonance. 

As it is easier to work in a relatively small physical area and with well-trained subjects, voice scientists have focused almost exclusively on the larynx and vocal tract of classical singers. Meanwhile, the rest of the body and other vocal genres have been largely ignored.

The Residency at UTAS provides the opportunity to film a series of classes and improvised performances demonstrating the effects of physical movement and shape on character development and vocal sound.
