Next Level Resonance Strategies – Singing Phonetics
- What are formants?
- What are resonances?
- Why are vowels dependent on pitch?
- What is formant tuning?
Philippe Hall talks to Wolfgang Saus about vowels and their importance for resonance strategies.
Resonance is a cornerstone of any vocal technique. However, the relationship between vowels, resonances, formants, harmonics and pitch is a complex topic and often confusing.
Wolfgang Saus shows participants how to use a vowel resonance chart to see at a glance why some vowels work excellently at a particular pitch and others not at all. Participants learn how resonances can be controlled by tongue movements and how they can optimize their resonances by using the right vowel nuances. After the seminar, they will be able to deal confidently with the terms formant, resonance and overtones.
