The Vibrating Larynx - part 1/4 This video , produced in Holland in 1960, provides a deep insight on the mechanics of phonation in singing. The main authors are Van der Berg (a scientist on voice) and William Vennard ( a singing professor). The work reflects the knowledge and latest findings 50 years ago and a lot more has been discovered, but the main information remains correct and very well explained.

Laryngology 101 - Vocal nodules Vocal cord nodules are swellings on the vocal cords caused by vocal overuse. They can be visualized with a procedure called laryngoscopy. Dr. James Thomas takes you on a tour of your throat and shows some of the variation of vocal nodules and how they consistently impact or impair the voice.
Inside Steve Sklar's Larynx: Sygyt Endoscopic video examination of my larynx while singing Tuvan sygyt style. Things to notice: the extreme constriction of the vestibule of the larynx; compare this to the more open area around and at the vocal folds when I stop singing, and when I speak in normal voice. You can barely see the vocal folds when singing sygyt (they look almost like tiny teeth beneath the constriction). Also, note the movement of the epiglottis (looks like a bright surfboard) with the harmonic melody. This is done by appropriate movements of the root of the tongue, to which it is connected. Ever wonder how videos of the inside of the larynx are made? See this video about fibroscopy, used to make endoscopic videos: Kids, don't try this at home!!!

Vocal Tips - The Larynx Position While Singing A case study on singers and their larynx position when singing or belting. Singers in this video: Barbra Streisand, Mariah Carey, Luther Vandross, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, Charice Pempengco, Squire Parsons, Whitney Houston, Nina, Juan Diego Flores, Shanice Wilson, David Phelps, Celine Dion, Leona Lewis, Vanessa Amorosi, Beyonce, Shirley Bassey, Miley Cyrus, Jessica Simpson, Steve Perry, Sarah Geronimo and Fergie. The video underlines the importance of keeping a neutral larynx position and show you why you shouldn't push or pull your larynx. Table of Contents: 1. Introduction 2. Neutral Larynx 3. Pulling the larynx up (High Larynx) 4. Pushing the larynx down 5. ***ysing clips 6. Test The purpose of this video is not to bash singers but to educate people so they don't sing with bad techniques just because their favorite singer might somehow use that technique before. Of course, you want to achieve the best production without ruining your own voice. The position of larynx while singing does affect your vocal health and your production. Again, the video is criticizing the singers' technique, not the singers themselves! It also aims to help people differentiate between a good high note and a bad high note because a lot of people are easily impressed by a high note just because it is loud. PS. In the video, when I said "vocal chords" I mean "vocal cords", it's a typo :) Enjoy! Comment, Like, Favorite, Share & Subscribe!
Mal Webb's Larynx in Hamburg In 2006, I was flown to Hamburg by an esteemed group of French and German physicist to act as a vocal guinea pig. I'm useful to those studying the acoustics of the voice because I'll try nearly anything (short of damaging my voice!) Nathalie Henrich, Lucie Bailly, Markus Hess, Anna-Katharina Licht and Frank Müller all coincided upon Universitätsklinikum Hamburg-Eppendorf for a few hours. Using a microphone, an ECG, a nasal laryngascope (with a strobe at times, which matches the frequency of the sound being produced) and several white coats, they recorded me making a wide variety of sounds. The video starts with the journey though my nose. Then there's some sideways yodeling (crossing the break from chest voice (and true head voice) into falsetto). This is my favourite thing and my instructional video on this is at: ) Next, we have inbreath singing (starting with a triplet of chest to falsetto to inbreath). Then there's throat singing. I'm not much of a throat singer (especially with an endoscope right next to my larynx), but to have one larynx doing each of the 4 different "growly voices" on roughly the same pitch was rather useful to them. First, there's the sob/whinge growl (no-one seems to know what to call this one). Second is the vocal fry or croaky/morning voice. Thirdly, the Louis Armstrong/Fat Albert/Fozzie Bear which is where the ventricular folds (also called "false vocal chords") interact with the epiglottus (firstly with and then without vocal ...

Laryngeal Movements Laryngeal movements are contributed by intact innervations, normal muscular activities, and the functioning articulating synovial joints. The true vocal folds will come closer to each ether (adduct) when we speak (phonate) and this function is usually tested clinically by asking the patient to say "eeeeee". It also adducts preceding to coughs and upon sustained forceful adduction during valsalva manouevre. This function is very useful in gaining good subglottic, intrathoracic, and intrabdominal pressure in activities such as coughing, defaecation, and heavy lifting. Forced adduction with intermittent leak of air produces grunting sounds. At its extreme, patients may present with variable degree of dysphonia (change in voice quality) or even to the extent of aphonia (no voice at all) as occurs in some hyperfunctional voice disorder like muscle tension dysphonia (MTD). All the intrinsic muscles are innervated by the recurrent laryngeal nerves with the exception of the cricothyroid muscle which is supplied by the external branch of the superior laryngeal nerve. Both mentioned nerves are branches of vagus ie, the Xth. cranial nerve. All the intrinsic muscles of the vocal folds are adductors with the exception of the posterior cricoarytenoid muscles which has an abduction (movement away from the centre) function. This muscle activity is tested clinically by asking the patient to sniff or by taking a good deep breath which will demonstrate its brisk opening movements. At rest ...

Confirmed: Canine Laryngeal Paralysis The most recent episode in which he can't inhale adequately. This clip was taken just before he went to the vet, was anesthetized, and diagnosed with LarPar (LP or Laryngeal Paralysis). One day later (today) he underwent surgery to tie back the left arytenoid cartilage in his larynx. This opens his airways so that he can breathe, but the opening is permanent, which puts him at risk of aspirating foreign matter into his lungs, which can in turn cause aspiration pneumonia. His earliest signs of breathing problems -- years ago -- were noisy, raspy breathing after exertion. In recent months episodes like the one shown here became more and more frequent, and were sometimes life threatening -- the worst instances marked by pronounced foaming, convulsions, and utter collapse. Added one week later: He has recovered well from the surgery and can now breathe normally, which is an enormous relief to all of us. He is more vigorous now than he's been in months, but still no puppy, as he is elderly (14 years 9 months) and has many other afflictions. Added months later: He continued to breathe normally and the feared aspiration pneumonia never occurred, so the surgery was a success. He passed away from unrelated causes 6 months later. A tribute to his life is here:

Laryngeal Nerve of the Giraffe Proves Evolution [Transcript] This is a segment only. Watch the entire episode here: Join Richard Dawkins as he takes the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of a giraffe dissection to explain Evolution by Natural Selection to a room full of lovely young Veterinary Students! Highlighted here is the example of the Laryngeal nerve, which in fish enervate the gills, but in mammals, which evolved from fish, now enervates the voice box. Since Natural Selection has no drawing board to return to, and since the nerve served a vital function, it's length was stretched over successive generations to several inches in the case of humans, to several meters in the case of the giraffe! Keep in mind that this nerve comes from the brain and passes within inches of it's destination before traveling, in all mammals, a wasteful and circuitous route around a major artery in the heart before going all the way back up to the Larynx. Demonstrative of our lowly origins as opposed to the arrogantly self-exalted status favored by wish thinkers worldwide.

Things to notice: the constriction of the vestibule of the larynx; compare this to the more open area around and at the vocal folds when I stop singing, and when I speak in normal voice. Also, you can see the two levels of kargyraa phonation: at the level of the vocal folds (lower, and partially occluded, and the ventricular folds, which are vibrating ABOVE the vocal folds. The ventricular folds are the source of the low tones, NOT something low in the neck as claimed by others here at YouTube. Ever wonder how videos of the inside of the larynx are made?
