Postopera Reinventing the Voice Body

Both in opera studies and in most operatic works, the singing body is often taken for granted. In Postopera: Reinventing the Voice-Body, Jelena Novak reintroduces an awareness of the physicality of the singing body to opera studies. Arguing that the voice-body relationship itself is a producer of meaning, she furthermore posits this relationship as one of the major driving forces in recent opera. She takes as her focus six contemporary operas - La Belle et la Bête (Philip Glass), Writing to Vermeer (Louis Andriessen, Peter Greenaway), Three Tales (Steve Reich, Beryl Korot), One (Michel van der Aa), Homeland (Laurie Anderson), and La Commedia (Louis Andriessen, Hal Hartley) - which she terms 'postoperas'. These pieces are sites for creative exploration, where the boundaries of the opera world are stretched. Central to this is the impact of new media, a de-synchronization between image and sound, or a redefinition of body-voice-gender relationships. Novak dissects the singing body as a set of rules, protocols, effects, and strategies. That dissection shows how the singing body acts within the world of opera, what interventions it makes, and how it constitutes opera’s meanings.

Theodore Dimon, an internationally recognized authority on the subject, as well as an expert in the Alexander Technique, makes unfamiliar terrain accessible and digestible by describing each vocal system in short, manageable sections and explaining complex terminology. The topics he covers include ribs, diaphragm, and muscles of breathing; the intrinsic musculature of the larynx, its structure and action; the suspensory muscles of the throat; the face and jaw; the tongue and palate; and the evolution and function of the larynx.

All you ever wanted to know about the female voice but you never dared to ask by the leading world expert, Dr. Jean Abitbol! Enriched with numerous fascinating anecdotes, this exciting book covers the journey of the female voice and its development and impact on others from motherhood to old age. And the journey is full of surprises with answers to fascinating questions. Does voice have a sex? Is that voice sexual or hormonal? Is it genetic or epigenetic? Why do female voices change less at puberty than men’s voices? How does a woman’s voice change during her menstrual cycle? Is the female biological clock still a mystery? How and why is the voice the target of the sexual hormones? What kind of treatments are we using today-from contraceptive pills, hormonal replacement therapy to alternative medicine-that affect the voice and how do they affect it? Is a woman’s voice damaged after the hormonal “earthquake” that takes place when she is in her fifties? Could we avoid or prevent the aging voice in women? What are the specific pathologies affecting the female vocal folds? What are the links between diet, hygiene, and exercise, and how do they affect the female voice? Like a ship on the waves of the sea of life, the female voice, a life-space-time continuum, travels through the winds of emotion and hormonal changes brought about by aging. Dr. Jean Abitbol guides the reader through these changes, mapping the female voice’s journey through life. With his guidance, you will come to see and to understand the emotion, the power, the seduction, the force, and the charm of the female voice and how they converge to make up the female persona.

In Faces of Your Soul, Elise Dirlam Ching and Kaleo Ching combine art and archetypes, meditation and acupressure, guided imagery, journaling, and many different creative processes in a collage of healing knowledge and wisdom. The authors start by stressing the balance of complementary opposites—left brain/right brain, challenge/comfort, practicality/the sacred—as crucial to beginning the journey. Then through guided imagery, they lead readers through subconscious realms to connect with archetypal sources of inner wisdom. This process frees the creative and healing spirit, connecting explorers with the body's instinctive intelligence, which expresses itself through the creation of art. Central to this process is a detailed description of maskmaking—including how to work with a partner to mold each other's gauze mask—balanced with self-explorations of the inner experience of this event. Poetry, personal stories, photographs, and a gallery of Kaleo Ching's evocative totemic masks expand the reader's experience of this richly resonant journey to self.

Wow! I am reading your book The Art of Voice Acting, and I want you to know it was worth way more than the cover price! The insights into the business, the A-B-Cs... it's all incredibly helpful. I was told by a producer in Vancouver, B.C., to get your book, he called it "The Voiceover Bible." He was so right! Gord Brooks Voice Services (Canada) Thank you for such a wonderful book! Your sense of humor is delightful, the content is superbly detailed and your encouragement throughout is greatly appreciated. I wanted to let you know just how first-rate I think The Art of Voice Acting is. I have taken two (2) Master classes in the past year-and-a-half but I got more practical information in just the first few chapters of your book than from the seminars. Thank you again for sharing your expertise. Daria M. Dutzmann, voice actor Just a note of thanks for your excellent book The Art of Voice Acting. I had the opportunity to do some radio spots today---and for the first time, started to touch on "voice acting" instead of "voice over." This really made a difference in my read---and the director was delighted! Eric Funk, President, Entertainment on Hold, Inc. I have been a successful voice over for about 10 years and recently bought and read The Art of Voice Acting. I must have been guided to do it! It was like receiving a (gentle) kick in my behind, spurring me to get reorganized, regalvanized, newly inspired because---to say the truth---I was sitting on my laurels doing very little to perfect my skills or bring new life to my career. Now I feel full of new energy. This is what I call an inspired purchase!" Anna Rigano, professional voice actor (UK)
