Abstract

Abstract:

This article is the first rigorous, scientific description of the timing and nature of the singing voice changes of an assigned female singer taking testosterone. It bridges gaps between performing arts pedagogy and medical/clinical perspectives, including both perceptual and clinical voice measures and assessing the relationship between hormone levels and voice changes. It includes illustrative audio recordings of the singer's changing voice and expands traditional boundaries of voice research by considering the singer's embodied, emotional experience of their voice.
