March NATS Chat - A Balance in the Force: Producing, Perceiving, Measuring and Assessing Vibrato
7:00 PM, March 19, 2023
A Balance in the Force: Producing, Perceiving, Measuring and Assessing Vibrato
Featuring John Nix, Joshua Glasner, Yvonne Gonzales Redman, and Theodora Nestorova
Vibrato can be defined as a periodic variation in some acoustic aspect of a singing voice, including frequency, intensity, and timbre. How it is produced, how we adjust it as singers in different venues and in different musical contexts, how we as skilled listeners perceive it, how voice analysis programs measure it, and how we assess what vibrato can tell us about the functioning of a singer's voice have fascinated each of the guests for this chat. The presenters, all active as singers, teachers, and researchers, bring a number of years of experience exploring vibrato from a variety of perspectives. This NATS Chat will provide up-to-date information on vibrato research, including that performed by the authors, and will offer suggestions on how to enhance vibrato listening skills in the studio.
