discovered my blog post a while back titled “Alleged Voice Trend: Vocal Fry”
In my opinion, Voice actors need to be aware of vocal trends, whether or not they are the kind of thing that permanently embed themselves into our communication. I know I have used and referred to various trends in speech patterns for finding characters and exploring new reads to more or lesser degrees, depending on a number of factors which I won’t delve into here and now.
For the most part, trends can be “trendy”, and easily become stale or downright destructive to the human voice, like the “vocal fry”, after prolonged use. Voice actors had best heed the call to take extreme care of our vocal folds! You lose or damage your voice and you’re out of business!
I ‘d like to share the following with my blog audience, because Elizabeth and I maintain a shared interest in speech and vocal patterns. I
trust what you’ll see aren’t purely permanent vocal trends, if there
are such things. But perhaps moreover a fad, a cultural reflection, especially
as demonstrated in the last video clip, which is too long, and basically a teenager behaving badly, yet glorified by a hit show. So what do you think?
Hey voice actors, just don’t do your daily warmups singing to Brittany’s songs!
