Hello all. No, I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth. I’ve been very busy working on a book project with masterful Kuk Harrell (who BTW had an amazing article in the NY Times recently – read here.), plus a recording project with my new group, teaching, school and a 2 year old (yikes!). Anyway, I have a few posts in the works that I’ll be posting between now and the end of the U.S. summer. I’m going on holidays this summer for the first time in years, and I finally purchased an iPad, which I still haven’t unpacked from the box, (I’m a bit scared!), so I’m sure this will give me ample time to respond to questions and post some new stuff.
In the meantime I thought I’d share this article with you that I read in Scientific American™. I often hear singers (especially the newbies) remark on how their voice sounds completely different on a microphone, or when they record in the studio and hear it back in the headphones etc. I always say quite simply that it doesn’t sound different to anyone else but you as our experience of our own voice is different inside our own head in comparison to how other people hear it. When I work with students I veer them towards the microphone as soon as they’re comfortable, as this is the only way to get used to it. Anyway, Scientific American posted a lovely article explaining this phenomenon in more scientific terms. Happy reading! See you soon!
