This is a simplified physical model proposed by me for the larynx during VVM phonation mode, which produces similar sounds to those from the Tibetan Chant tradition. Below, the vocal folds (m1,m2) and above, the false or ventricular folds (m3). In this example, vocal folds oscillate at a frequency which is twice as that of the ventricular folds. The letters mstand for mass, k for stiffness, and r for damping coefficient. Indexes r-l stand for left and right sides, respectively.
During my research work in music acoustics I created/recorded/processed some gigabytes of sound files, most of them of no musical interest for the listener.
FILES IN REAL AUDIO FORMAT
Periodic pulse register , see Paper VI
Vocal Growl (co-oscillation of vocal folds and epiglottis)-similar to the mechanism used by Louis Armstrong
A piece for OBOE called “My Six Marigaux 10499’s”, recorded in 6 channels
All recordings, excepted by numbers 0 (Gyuto Monks, Tibet) and 4 (Popeye, W. Costello) are performed by Leonardo Fuks
