Vocal Fry: Part 2

We’re back with more Vocal Fry!

Last week, we learned how fry is created. This week, we discuss how to use this sound to expand vocal range and balance, what styles of music it can be heard in, and how it can be used to rehabilitate damaged voices. Another listener question, why it’s harder to sing notes in songs than it is in exercises, is also answered!

Coming up next is our voice lesson on Fryday! A student comes in to demonstrate these vocal fry exercises in real time, giving our ears a treat. And next week, we’re having a talk on the mixed voice, which the singing world is enamored by.

Any questions? I’d be happy to answer them! Reach Vocalogical at Facebook.com/Vocalogical, Twitter @Vocalogicalpod, and Vocalogical.com.

Thanks for listening and happy singing!

Vocal Fry Stroboscopy

Happy Vocal Fryday! Here’s to another installment in Interesting Voice Facts!

As I was going through my research on vocal fry, I’ve found tons of interesting comments, studies, and theories. Along with it, I’ve found one short video of the vocal folds at work with fry.

Welcome to the world of stroboscopies! A camera is used on a patient, either through the nose or mouth, and it allows for a visualization of the folds themselves. In this case, the patient sings with both vocal fry and normal phonation, allowing us to see the difference.

Thank you to the Osborne Head and Neck Institute for this informative and interesting video! If you’re interested in seeing more, many other stroboscopies can be found on Youtube and elsewhere on the web.

If you haven’t yet listened to Vocalogical’s first episode on vocal fry, it can be found here: http://vocalogical.com/vocal-fry-part-1/

There’s more great stuff on fry coming your way! The second episode will be released this coming Wednesday!

Happy singing!

What is vocal fry anyway?!

We dig deep today with Vocalogical’s newest episode! We learn how our voices are able to make this creaky, unique sound, we talk about conspiracies that swirl around this type of voice production, and we discuss some really nifty studies that were done on the subject matter.

Today is only the beginning! Next week, we have the second part of our focus on vocal fry, featuring exercises and theories, how fry has been used to rehabilitate voices, and how to use it to improve your own singing.
