In this presentation, I will be offering a brief presentation of the vocal instrument, its function, properties, unique characteristics and needs, as we understand it today. We will be looking at basic acoustical aspects of the human voice, but also at how we try to make sense of it, with recording and analyses. We will be touching upon ‘preferences’ and how these are formed, but also how context specific these might be. Finally, we will use one particular ‘trick’ that researchers sometimes employ in order to form a greater understanding of ‘normality’, by looking at ‘supra-’ and ‘infra-’ normal examples of voice production and singing.

This talk is part of the CMS seminar series in the Faculty of Music series.
