Voice has many bodies, the body has many voices. Thus, they are never left one without the other. Height depends on how low one stands, deepness on how high one's imagination can fly. How do you feel that you are in tune? You feel it as something vibrating between the ribs when someone else is singing. A bit higher or a bit lower. Depending on the body you are in. Depending on which voice you sing in, in which voice you hear... Another way of feeling it is that you feel nothing – because you are no longer there, the whole of you is in the singing. When you forget your lines, you are knocking on the doors of improvisation, innovation, or some other iiii, which you, thank song, have forgotten. When you are out of tune, you are out. Still, within this you may hear a voice, which escapes you and wants to play with you. If you have a text, but not yet a melody, simply place yourself in silence and listen to it until your humming seduces the rhythm to bite your body. You need to have courage to hear yourself. Do not hesitate, open the door and start playing.
In the end of the daaaaaaaaaay, singing is (just) singing... Irena Tomažin
