Abstract

The author discusses "chiaroscuro," which refers to the balance of brilliance and warmth in the timbre of the singing voice. He offers exercises and approaches to help singers discover and foster optimal resonance in their voices. Resonance is explained, techniques for recognizing optimal "chiaroscuro" are shared, and methods of digital palpitation of the buccal and laryngeal regions to tune the resonance tract are detailed.
