This videotape ushers in a relatively untouched research field of the the marriage of broad artistic intents, phsiological requirements of the vocal performer, and hall acoustics. The topics that are demonstrated, discussed, and given acoustic analyses, include adequate soft vocal performance, consequences of using too low of a pitch in acting, singing off pitch, the importance and reasons for pitch inflection in acting, the importance and enhancements of seeing the front and face of the performer, overcoming problems of the highly reverberant hall, and vowel modification with pitch change to preserve vocal quality. Other topics discussed include the definitions of audilbility, intelligibility, and interpretation from the performers' point of view, pitch matching problems, insights into adequate nonverbal performance, "cheating out", trading intelligibility for vocal quality, resonance for different vocal styles, and safe shouting. 1996, colour & sound, approx 80 mins
