our voices are imprinted with our life histories, with all the poor habits we've developed, with all the ways in which we've learned to inhibit our impulses and natural emotions. a poorly used spine throws off the balance of muscular exertion in your body, which forces a burden on your other muscles such as the diaphram and muscles of the shoulder, neck and throat--the pathways of breathing--which then burden your mouth and tongue and lips, which shape the sounds. and when i say, "small coffee, no milk two sugars, please," or emote sincere feelings of love, my messages can get mixed up. "coffee please" becomes "give me," and "i love you" becomes "give me."
this is probably (?) useful for actors and singers. the illustrations are fucking awesome. i love the one of a torso detached from its head. you're supposed to imagine that your head is separate from your body. or something. maybe. Reply
