Vocal Fry: Part 1

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.

Lessons

Voice Lesson 1: Mike

It’s time for our first voice lesson! Vocalogical welcomes back Mike Wrabel, our guest from Wednesday, to vocalize for and sing with us. In this episode alone, we’ve discussed a lot of vocal concepts! Volume, stronger qualities in the voice, vowels, and extending range are only a few topics that’s talked about. Mike offers great feedback on the exercises we used and the feelings he had.

Voice Impersonator: Mike Wrabel

I’m very pleased to bring to you Vocalogical’s first interview!

Mike Wrabel, a friend and student, came in to talk about his experiences and feelings while doing voice impersonations. He gives us a taste of Family Guy’s Peter Griffin and Cleveland Brown, while speaking on how the next voices he wants to conquer are Bernie Sanders and Patrick Warburton. Oh, he also says how he characterizes his own mother’s voice!

Mike speaks highly on trying crazy and new voices for any aspiring impersonator and voice actor, and gives his input on the important relationship and balance between the science and feelings of the voice. The best part is, we get to hear more from him on Friday! Today was the interview, Friday is the voice lesson we recorded together. Both episodes bring up fantastic ideas and gives you fun sounds and vocal qualities to listen to, all while learning more about the human voice!

Any questions for Mike or myself? Find the contact page above and send us a message! Like what you hear? Please share and spread it around! For more, find Vocalogical on Twitter @vocalogicalpod and https://www.facebook.com/Vocalogical/

Anatomy of the Larynx

We’re back to discuss the Anatomy of the Larynx! Vocalogical touched upon the different cartilages and muscles of our voices and how they interact with each other. This is just the tip of the iceberg, but it’s a perfect basic outline before we dive into more discussions!

If you like what you hear, spread it around and get others involved! The more people we have interacting, sharing stories, and asking questions, the more we’ll learn together.

Next week we have our first guest, an impersonator! We’ll talk about the muscles and how they adapt to create different sounds, and he’ll give a taste as to what making all of these voices feel like. He’ll be singing for our first voice lesson as well, as we try new exercises and discuss results, feelings, and the like on the air.

Join us at https://www.facebook.com/Vocalogical/ and at Twitter: @vocalogicalpod for more discussions, tips, and chats!

Happy Singing, everyone!
