Singing "On the Breath"
Singing "On the Breath" is certainly what we singers are all aiming at. The Intercostals do play an important part in the process and one does feel the sensation in the back. The floated tone, one teacher, I believe Norman Gulbrandsen, Northwestern University School of Music, described as suspended animation. The breathing process stopped, was suspended, but the singing went on, on the breath. Exhalation will always win. An interesting concept. Marc Alan Innes
