Voice Quality

Voice QualityHave you ever paid close attention to the quality of your voice? How does your voice sound when you are for example crying or shouting at someone or just talking in normal tones or laughing? Take a look at some of the different words used to describe voice quality – guttural, rasping, husky, hoarse, throaty, gruff and more. The human voice is capable of endless variety.

We go through life without even realizing the expressive quality and power of our voice because we are using it only to communicate with others. We have settled with the thought that speech and language are the primary means of communication and don’t try to explore beyond it. However, in the case of actors, the spoken word does not only convey its literary meaning but it also introduces the acoustic factor through the creative manipulation of the actor’s voice. The ‘acoustic factor’ here means the actual voice of the actor and its modulation that are crucial for conveying a variety of emotions.
