KillerKu Posted April 24, 2015 Share Posted April 24, 2015 I've been in an impersonating mood as of late, it's a nice way of finding new sound colors, but it's not as expressive as interpretation. I came up with an idea of a topic, where we should all impersonate a singer as closely as possible and then interpret the same song as ourselves. So I'll start with Bob Dylan's Like a Rolling Stone: Impersonation: https://app.box.com/s/n7c9m90xjgkid0ia70xoym0oefppfrt4 Subjective analysis of technique: It felt like I was applying a slight plaintive holding sensation while using slightly too much air and nasal vowels to imitate an old nasally man who was wheezing slightly. Intepretation: https://app.box.com/s/8u9qheykdv65oc7hyo2n7b3beqiprzh0 Subjective Analysis of Interpretation: Once upon a time you dressed so fine (Conversationally introducing narrative) You gave all the bums a dime in your prime didn't you? (with slight sarcasm) People call say beware doll, You're bound to fall (bordering on schadenfreude) You thought they were all kidding didn't you? (Starting to confront) You used to talk and laugh about (Reminiscing) Everybody that was hanging out (like it's simply a memory) But now you don't talk so loud (beginning to feel weak) And now you don't seem so proud (and incredibly small) Bout having to be scrounging round for your next meal (Winding up to fully confront the issue) How does it feel? (Asking the impossible) Oh tell me how does it feel? (Driving home the lack of response) To be on your own (realizing you're the only one in the narrative) With no direction home (You're not the one who is homeless) Like a complete unknown (Have always had family) Like a Rolling Stone (Shamefully admitting to having harbored negative feelings towards the homeless, but at the same time feeling hopeless to change oneself into someone with more sympathy, like a rolling stone) Anyone else up for this? I thought since we talk about impersonations and 'being your own artist' this could be a great idea. It might improve our voices, technique wise and artistically. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
