In this page, various experiments for analysis of human vocal voice, especially male singing voice were performed and displayed the results and findings. These results were analyzed computerized methods in acoustic sciences, and also were biologically/physiologically interpreted, to develop a new vocalizing method to sing all kinds of notes and voice species, and also to provide the method that is able to unite all the voice species, such as bass, bariton, tenor, and even soprano. This is one of my life works, while I am a molecular cell biologist. To develop this method, I am quite lucky to be both vocalist and scientist for the relevant field many years at the same time. There are vast amount data but, I will brief it here:
In this method, it is important to discriminate the VDR, so called “Vocal
Duct Resonance. However, this word is some how ambiguously recognized as
a resonance of a space between vocal chord and mouth. In my experiments
showed that the resonant compartments will be two types of spaces between:1.
Vocal chord and mouth openning; 2. Vocal chord and the highest end of palate.
In the former, the resonance is variable while the latter stable (constant).
In male voice, the latter compartment plays a central role while in female
voice the former. The latter resonant space gives a stable resonance between
approximately 2200 to 3200Hz width and 2700 Hz being the center in male
singing voice, and also does the tuning point in vocal. This stable resonance
also significantly quantize male voice.
The vocalize method for male voice here features usage of physical
resonance (body resonance), and we may be able to span more than 4 octaves
in a continuous notes with enough loudness and quality. It sometimes spanning
to 7 octaves or more. If you use this method, you will be released from
the restrictions of voice species, and might be able to sing virtually
all the vocal music acappella without shifting their notes to adapt. Covered
ranges in classical voice species, counter bass, bass, baritone, tenor,
counter tenor/male soprano, and even whistle boys like birds. Therefore,
this will give a good basis of wide-ranging voices for male singers in
You do not bother much about symbols of notes of scores such as the
treble clef, alto clef, or F clef (low bass). You can sing just as written
in music scores you want to sing. Since the method also composed of self
tuning points to keep notes well, so that even temporary note changes can
be done easily.
This way is also quite adaptable for various languages, for instance, Japanese, English, German etc, and you will get quite big freedom to sing! In conventional methods will require to sing in some specific languages such as Italian and German.
Some of the characteritic features of this novel vocalize method are summarized
One of typical example by this method here: bass-tenor solo in Symphony No9 by Beethoven, by the single person and Eearly spring yet winter -Bass/Tenor/Sprano Relay (C-major low-G-major-C-major high, successively) by a single person in
Japanese as well.
There are much more in this site, including Germman, English, and Japanese, those which I can understand.
