This immersive Applied Physiology of the Voice workshop aims to give participants a direct and audible experience of the usually hidden and untapped potential of their sound.
Voice professionals need to combine intensive use of their vocal cords with a high degree of performance. They need a voice that is sustainable as well as pleasant to listen to and resonant. This course offers both.
A healthy, long-lasting, effortless and vibrant voice that will convey a sense of authenticity is a huge asset in all sorts of professional and personal settings.
The qualitative and instinctual potential of the voice (i.e. its timbre, its texture) is often not given enough attention in voice development work. Emphasis is typically placed on cognitive and external aspects like choice of words, intonation and body language. Yet, the intrinsic quality of one’s voice speaks the true body language of one’s inner organs and nervous system. The quality of your voice tells your listeners who you are and what is happening inside of you (literally) while you are communicating with them. It does so on a subliminal level, where many of their decisions about how to react to you are made.
This immersive Applied Physiology of the Voice workshop aims to give participants a direct and audible experience of the usually hidden and untapped potential of their sound. Voices will be reconfigured into a powerful, self-reliant and authoritative means of direct communication with the deep structures of the listeners’ nervous system. Participants will be involved in listening tasks allowing them to distinguish between different types of voice quality and different degrees of “voice ergonomics”. The workshop will also include practical exercises aimed at stimulating the nervous system so that it can enable a freer, self-supporting voice production.
The workshop is mainly practical and it is open to participants who speak any language, irrespective of their occupation or walk of life. Neither previous knowledge of the subject nor previous training are required. The workshop will be given in English, but interaction in French will be possible. Tone-deaf participants and participants with voice problems are also welcome. Just bring your vocal cords!
The Method: Applied Physiology of the Voice is the product of over 40 years of research and development conducted by the Lichtenberger Institut fur Angewandte Stimmphysiologie, which is a spin-off of the Ergonomics Department of the Darmstadt Technical School. This pioneering voice development method combines physics, physiology, neuroscience, depth psychology – and much else besides – in an unconventional approach in an unconventional approach that completely reorganizes the process of voice generation.The results are remarkable, and age-independent. Participants can expect to hear the quality of their own voice change during the workshop. These results can be made permanent over the medium term through continued work and follow-up practice.
Places are limited: as the trainer uses a hands-on approach, only 10 active participants will be accepted. A minimum number of participants is required for the workshop to be confirmed.
