Speaking about voice
Something happened today, I should have zipped up but I can't...
On the way driving Isa back home, we decided to switch the channel to the radio after listening to Tina's albums all the day. It was playing Whitney Houston's early works. Paul sighed over the big lose in the music world, "What a pity! what a power voice! If it was not her husband....." Paul must be wondering why human nature sometimes is so fragile, especially when his thought had not completely jumped out of the shadow nurtured by the movie "Shutter Island" that we talked about this morning. I felt the air inside grievous so I kept silent.
"Once-upon-a-time great singer turns out to be husky." "Can she really sing? Lipsynch just one time (or fucking several times) subverts all the sublimes before." So smart questions. OMG, thanks to the millions of homemade professional videos explicating how and when those fraud live performances work, I realize that I start to become clever! Yeah!
Voice, never forget, is produced by a group of organs of human body - muscles, tendons, nerve fibers and etc. Like athletes, each singer has his/her prime time when those organs functions and cooperates to their best, breaking records, speeding up thousand's heart beat, bringing millions' happy tears. Leading in a good way, decades of proudness; Making a mistake, a lifetime to regain. No question about making mistake here, ordinary do it by rushing red light, super hierarchy does it by feeding the seagull oil. For those who are not able to understand this, I suggest buying a Japanese robot diva online immediately.
Making up for individual vocal defects by using the studio stuff in order to give the audience the best entertainment is a fault? Just in 30 seconds, someone who thinks like mathematician stands up and speaks aloud, "This is cheat, can't give a shit to the defense as hypocritical good will." Alright, there only exists right or wrong. If exposing 1%-9% defects together with 99%-91% excellence makes people happy, why not have a big heart to accept the 1%-9% vocal processing the same way as accepting the defect itself? Why play with fire by searching for human perfection? (superman, superwoman, spiderman, catwoman, whatever) Taking the psychosocial influence into consideration. Haven't we got enough with the perverted joy accounting on diminishing others' talent or skills? To the bombastic speech giver, I just say, "Wanna save the world? First save your sullen neighbor buying her a classic album with several vocal processing."
1:08 am, a little bit tired but feel better now. Hope her or his music accompany le "petit monsieur" Paul all the way en voyage a London later today.
