Guest Posted April 27, 2013 Share Posted April 27, 2013 Hi everyone, along with my ascending octave sirens and semi occluded 5 tone scales and some songs I have been working on getting some more adduction, power, volume in the mix. Yesterday I did a descending slide on doo-oh and open to OH after the passaggio which to my ears was fully connected straight through the mix and it sounded medium volume to me. But when I actually played it back the volume was EXTREMELY low and weak. Although I was in a mix it was more like a falsetto/mix hybrid. Why is it that it sounds louder in my head? I feel like the 3 problems causing that area to be weak are 1. lack of muscular development, my lowervoice is used to going up high not the other way around 2. was tired so lacked compression/adduction 3.oo vowel has the lowest frequencies (last time i checked) Now I occasionally have "big boomy headtones" but it was saddening/surprising to hear myself sound so "weak" because a lot of the songs I like require power in that range. What is the best way to go about progress now that I genuinely know that area is very weak/breathy? And yes most songs I want to sing are in the C4-C5 and I can "yell" most of those notes in chest but because I want artistic diversity and freedom I'm building the genuine mix. Something strange to note is that if I sing a twangy nyey-nyey-nyey something my teacher (female soprano uses) the frequencies amplify like crazy... and I sound more connected but witchier. What are some ways to develop adduction, loudness, and overall support in the C4-C5 area where it's a "tug of war" between registers. It feels like to get get my "oos" connected I have to sacrifice power, which is a something that I need in my singing. My feelings is that getting into the hybrid register is just the first step... leaning into to it.. making it useable is the difficult part. Thanks in advanced. - JayMC Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
