More resonance at practically no extra cost!
Resonance (in a nutshell) is everything that you can change above the vocal folds. There’s no excess pressure or effort on the vocal folds themselves. You can basically get resonance for free. Want more ‘brightness’ in your voice? Don’t try to over compress the vocal folds to create it, instead use twang (which is a narrowing of the vocal tract, via the aryepiglottic folds. Woah) to give you brightness without any excess pressure on the vocal folds. Use resonance to your advantage to maximise your voice, with practically no added pressure on the vocal folds. A free gift of resonance.
