Music perception

The singing voice is the most subtle musical instrument. A large degree of emotional impact is explained by the fact that both aesthetic and semantic information affect a person’s mind and feelings, the latter being distinguished, as a rule, also by a high artistic value, if outstanding poetic works are chosen for it.
The physical data of singing voices include, first of all, high-altitude (frequency) and dynamic ranges. The altitude range is usually less than two octaves, and dynamic – 35 dB. The timbre properties of a singing voice are determined by the composition and intensity of the overtones. According to the frequency range, there are three main groups of female voices, three – male and two – children’s.

The contralto 175 … 784
Tenor 131 … 587 Continue reading
