Analysis of the Voce faringea and other register mechanisms using VoceVista, including audio samples of the illustrations in the dissertation – for more information, see the scientific study “Investigating Voce Faringea with the Voce Vista Pro System”.

Power spectrum and EGG of a tone (Bflat4) in falsetto-dominant register mix: Voce faringea (top) and in modal-dominant mix: Mezza Voce (below).
More EGG and audio samples showing the differences between countertenor falsetto and Voce faringea:
Voce faringea – EGG wave form showing a very clear knee:
Power spectra with the indicated regions of formants 1 and 2 (left) and EGG signal curves with pronounced knee form (right).
Transition from countertenor falsetto (below) to Voce faringea (top) – pitch: B4
Significant differences of the EGG wave form and the volume in the frequency range of the singers formant cluster:
Transition from countertenor falsetto (below) to Voce faringea (top) – pitch: C#5
Significant differences of the EGG wave form and the volume of H3:
Diminuendo in voce faringea – pitch: B4
