Resan från nyutbildad till professionell operasångerska
The journey from newly qualified to a professional opera singer
In my work I process my development of vocal technique and how it was affecting me during my artistic project "My home - a way back" with director Mira Bartov. During the training, I have met different coaches and singing teachers who have meant a lot for me to find my vocal identity. I discuss and analyze in this work from my process diary, which has been continuously during the work and the methods (sound recording and video filming) come to the tools I use to develop in the best way. My intention with this work has been that in the future I will be able to use this work and the different types of documentation, which I have used both in the singing room so that on stage. I pay attention to my strengths and weaknesses and educators help adapt the vocal technique exercises and mental settings for these properties to be processed adequately. I have chosen to refer to the book: The inner voice - The Making of a Singer by Renée Fleming which I have found similarities with myself in the description she has in her book both on a vocally and musically plan. The choice to use this book as a starting point to the work has been that it puts into words a lot of my experiences and approaches that I can relate to. This book has been formulated in a way that others can partake observations and tips author writes about. In this work, we read about how different teachers approaching my musicality and largely focus and ultimate goal of my project above. The bulk of this work has focused on finding the natural sound that is the basis for vocal identity. Thereby, my work is about my individual process and is not an analytical, problem-work.
