Abstract

Stage actors need breath control for voice projection and resonance. However, littleis known about the abdominal muscle activation during vocalizations of differentsounds and different lung volumes. The impact of training on muscle activationis likewise under-reported in the literature. This Voicing describes the content ofan intervention used in an intensive six-week series of training workshops andforms the basis for a research project where muscle recruitment before and after was measured in both trained and untrained performers. Through participation inthis intensive workshop, an untrained performer demonstrates changes in musclerecruitment with reduced activation of the global muscles and improved muscleefficiency.
