Instruction for singers:
The sound emanates, creating a wall in the mind from the brow and in the direction of the backbone and occiput. The sound comes from the heart, not from the throat. Loose jaw, palate ten centimeters above head. More or less this is the way how you should imagine your body while singing, to achieve something called purity and pitch of a sound.

Then the voice releases by "itself" using matter, which is the body of the singer like an instrument, a resonance box with inserted brain. This physical passivity lets you touch the primitive simplicity of existence and almost animal emotional expression. The rest of the script in performance is a work for intellect and a sense of synthesis.
