Voice for Performance
Paperback ISBN: 0879103531
"The goal of voice work," Linda Gates explains in Voice for Performance, "is to reveal the mind and soul of the character through the words of the playwright so the audience can both hear and understand." She addresses key elements of voice and speech-respiration, vibration, resonation, and articulation-in a straightforward style and grounds her approach in the elimination of the separation between the actor's voice and speech. Gates also addresses how this relates to the voice of the actor/singer. For the first time, this book is now available in paperback and includes eight hours of exercises with the author on two companion audio CDs. A new Chapter, "The Singing Voice," has also been added.
