  • THE LIBERATION OF SOUND is a unique examination of a truly excellent vocal technique and its practical use. It is an invitation to all vocalists, musicians and lovers of singing who have retained their openess and curiosity. (Part 1) Part 2 you can find here:
  • THE LIBERATION OF SOUND presents a vocal technique originally based on the Italian bel canto method. Kammersänger Peter Gougaloff developed and refined this method over many years of research. The result of his work is an extremly physiological singing technique that can be explained through all registers. Verena Rein has further enhanced Gougaloff’s technique to include a unique and highly innovative method that helps vocalists to keep their vocal apparatus - and indeed the entire body - freely movable, elastic, pulsating and open at all times, as well as to develop an unmistakably individual singing voice.

    The Liberation of Sound was produced to invite and encourage vocalists at all levels to discover new ways of working with, rather than against their body, which is, after all, the instrument of a singer - an instrument that needs to be treated with care. It includes a series of practical exercises to effectively demonstrate the various possibilities the tongue rotation technique offers to vocalists.

    In addition to the tutorial, this video includes clips from the performance training course the author specifically developed for vocalists, showing that this new-found freedom is not limited to the voice but includes aspects of body expression as well, demonstrating how vocalists can complement the voice with body language when performing on stage. Ideally, the result is a well-toned, relaxed singer with an authentic, individual vocal sound and a strongly identifiable style of expression. This is a path well worth following.

    Recorded at Berlin University of the Arts (Joseph-Joachim-Saal) and Studio Siemensvilla of Deutschlandradio Kultur.
