# 10 Vocal exercise on a fifth using vowel O


Vocalize pe interval de cvinta pe vocala O

Aceasta vocaliza urmareste emisia mai multor sunete in legatto fara a schimba locul de rezonanta, fara a intrerupe aerul emis precum si dozarea corecta a presiunii si a consumului de aer. Datorita faptului ca vocaliza se intinde pe o cvinta, avem ocazia sa constatam ca la notele joase pierdem mai mult aer iar la notele acute avem nevoie de mai multa presiune. Acest exercitiu, dupa invatarea lui, ne va ajuta sa dozam aerul si presiunea exact atat cat cere emisia sunetului, organismul stiind exact cum trebuie sa reactioneze! Este mai mult un exercitiu de constatare a firescului in cantat. Orice fortare a sunetului, orice inspiratie a aerului peste doza fireasca, orice crispare musculara care intervine, este incorecta si nefireasca. Pentru registrul acut, gatul trebuie relaxat (chiar daca acesta are tendinta sa se crispeze) si senzatia pe care trebuie sa o urmarim este ca si cum am avea vocea mai groasa, ca si cum am casca, ca si cum am retine un pic aerul fara sa-l consumam.

The purpose of this exercise is to emit a number of sounds in legatto without changing the resonator, without gaps in the breathing and by a correct dosage of pressure and air consumption. Due to the fact that the exercise is on a fifth, we can observe that, in the lower notes, we lose air and for the higher notes we need more pressure. This exercise, after mastering it, will help us dose the air and the pressure in the right amount for the emission of the sound, the body knowing exactly how it must react! It is more an exercise for observing the natural in singing. Any forcing of the sound, any inhalation of air over the right amount, any muscle stiffness that may occur, is incorrect and unnatural. For the high register, the throat must be relaxed (even though it will tend to stiffen) and the sensation that we must obtain is similar to a lower voice, as if yawning, as if holding in the air without using it.
