juliansader Posted June 21, 2010 Share Posted June 21, 2010 Hi everyone, One of this year's American Idol contestants, Didi Benami, regularly shifted her voice between a soft, breathy timbre (presumably a variant of 'soft-closure neutral', in CVI terminology) and a much edgier, sharp timbre. I am curious to know what the terminology for this sharp timbre is, according to CVI, Estill or any other system... Even though the volume doesn't change much when she shifts between the two timbres, the difference is timbre is much greater than in other examples of 'twang' or 'metal' that I have heard, so I am not sure what to call it. I have uploaded an excerpt from her performance of 'Terrified' that demonstrates the sharp timbre on the words "Through the lonely" and the last part of the word "side". ("Lonely" also has a rather nasal quality.) http://www.speedyshare.com/files/23070478/Didi_Benami_Terrified_Excerpt.mp3 Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
