What do they have in common?
This August I was invited to attend a seminar on Posture for the Performing Voice in Namur, Belgium. To my delight I found lots of beer and chocolate. Also, can’t forget the waffles.
I had the honor of test running a brand new software program named Euterpe, commissioned by Joseph Quoidbach, a physical therapist and professor at the Namur Conservatory of Music. Developed by students at the University of Liege, Belgium, Euterpe measures how posture changes the harmonics of the voice.
You might be thinking “well of course!”, especially if you’re a singer like me. But, now we have proof. By utilizing the Kinect system by Microsoft, Euterpe records your posture while simultaneously recording the voice, revealing the most efficient combination with the most harmonics.
Instead of rambling on I’ll let the developers explain. Checkout the video below.
