Technologies of the Self

Alan Bowers, M.AmSAT

 The vocal tract—lips of the glottis to the lips of the mouth—is the theater of the  voice. Walk upstage on the tongue of that theater and point slightly upwards, you’re pointing at the atlanto-occipital joiint, the axis of the head upon the spine. The slightest maladjustment there—a backward tilt—has a profound effect upon the vocal tract and thus upon the voice. Here is the synergy of Alexander Technique and voice—the Singer’s Synergy—the minded balance of the head on top of the spine and the freedom of the vocal tract.

 

The virtuous circle  The arc of our lives is inscribed in a breath. At our birth, we inspire and at our deaths we expire, inspiration/expiration. Free the breath. Free your body. Free your voice. Free your breath, a virtuous circle. You’ll begin to live in its circumference at your first lesson. Call me.
