Ive came across the video of laryngoscope showing the vocal folds and the muscles around when performing the "Thyroid Tilt Manouver" Really interesting to see how the light sound is produced by the person getting the scoping and the vocal folds are vibrating nicely. Is the thyroid tilt what actually puts us in a twang vocal mode?
Any Estill experts here? I've come to realize that the main thing that has been holding me back is that I can't get thyroid tilt to happen in thick folds. I have been trying for a very long time now and nothing seems to work. I can make it happen only in very thin. Someone once brought my attention to the fact that one unmistakable sign that thyroid tilt is happening is that an octave feels extremely small, which is due to the fact that the folds are already pulled tighter and the arytenoids have to move less to reach higher notes. In my thinnest thin, I can make it happen easily, but otherwise, it just doesn't happen no matter how much effortfully I use cry/sob. Can anyone offer any suggestions on how to get thyroid tilt and thick folds (modal voice) at the same time?
