The Top 10 Colleges for Music Production - Music School

How is this possible knowing that men and women rarely have the same vocal register? (To see the definition of register here is the vocabulary of the beginner singer Smile )
THE TRICK TO SUCCEED IN SINGING ANY SONG
In the example above Jasmine sings in the original tone of Gary Jules and Madilyn in a higher tone. How is it possible? Magic? Music production in USA
If you told yourself that the singers use advanced vocal techniques to modulate their voice in order to adapt to the original melody, you are not there at all! It is not the singer who adapts to the song but rather the song which is adapted to the singer? Are you having trouble following me? Here is the explanation:
THE TRICK IS TRANSPOSITION
In fact, it is very simple the original melody is simply "transposed" in a higher or lower tone. This trick is also used by the original performers themselves, especially in concert. Indeed, knowing that a concert generally includes ten songs, to avoid getting tired of the voice, it is common for the tone of “difficult” songs to be lower than the tone used on the disc.
Have fun listening to live or acoustic versions of singers like SIA, Lady Gaga, Lana Del Rey, Whitney Houston and compare them to that of the record. Even if you are a novice you will still hear a difference;).
In fact, studio recording conditions are often optimal so that the singer can push his voice to the maximum, which is not the case in concert where the singer has to move, dance and even sometimes play a musical instrument. while he sings. To make the song easier, the melody is therefore transposed down.
However, not all singers transpose their songs. There are still exceptions like Adèle, who sing at her concerts as well as on record. But it's still rare, especially in the music industry as we know it.
