The 5 factors of Creating Voice!

The 5 factors of creating voice!

1:The “Vocal Folds”, also known as “Vocal Cords”, are located within the larynx (also colloquially known as the voice box) at the top of the trachea. They are open during inhalation and come together to close during swallowing and phonation. When closed, the vocal folds may vibrate and modulate the expelled airflow from the lungs to produce speech and singing.

2:The vocal chord is composed of muscle and  mucosa, the muscle of the vocal chord does not move by itself. It works in accordance with the Bernoulli Theorem Effect of Vocal Fold Vibration. The vocal folds primary function is to protect the airways. During respiration the vocal folds are separated, allowing air to move freely in and out of the body. The fact that the vocal folds can intrude on the airstream and form a constriction of the airway is a critical part of the process, and called “phonation”. The airstream is forced to make a detour around the vocal folds, and it is under these conditions that the Bernoulli Effect occurs.

3:The quality of voice is determined by the resonance chamber which is located in the upper Pharyngeal cavity, producing sound the same way a musical instrument would. 

4:Throat muscles need to be flexible for controlling the resonance chamber. Good health and muscle-strengthening techniques will help maintain flexibility.

5: Physical movements and practiced techniques which are the fundamental skills of the throat and the mental health , determine whether or not someone is experienced or “good” at singing.

How voice is created:
Fact : Vocal chords cannot vibrate without air. This means that inhalation and  exhalation is necessary in order to vocalize. The sound source made by Bernoulli theorem and executing these 4 actions of the vocal chords create voice.
1:opening and closing
2:expansion and contraction
3:hardness and softness
4:thickness and thin

Parts of the body being used to create voice:
1:laryngeal ventricle
2:piriform recess
3:pharyngeal cavity
4:oral cavity
5:nasal cavity

The pharyngeal cavity is located on the back of the hyoid bone. It can be controlled, changing in figure or size to create different effects. The flexibility of muscle around the throat is necessarily for construction of the space in the cavity.
Vocalization is an exercise. Understanding the voice creation process, and practicing control techniques will aid any singer in producing a beautiful voice, to entertain and captivate their audience .

  1. Does thyroid tilt vary between each person? I can consistently reach the singers formant with tilt, but can’t provide enough energy into it. It feels like I’m missing a certain degree of either thyroid tilt or flageolet mechanism.
