Voice Changes Over Moods

Voice changes over moods

Hello there, 

I'm going to post a few of the lessons which I learned from my college. Now my main is Music Therapy and I'm truly happy that I chose such a subject after my graduation.

A voice tone can do a lot to people's minds. I believe.. even I love my tone colour. But, we all have voice changes according to our moods. Today we are going to talk about voice changes over moods.

I experienced it when I was voicing for one of my projects, that the previous evening I was happy, and the next day I was confident enough to sing properly and also I found that my voice colour is much better.

In conclusion, moods do changes tone colors.

What do you think about a person’s voice changes when he/she is 

 a) full of joy 
 b) sad and depressed or 
 c) angry and fiery

A) Full of joy – Emotions are playing a role when a person speaks or when they do things. When someone is in a happy mood, usually they talk with a smile, hope, love, and all the positive feelings that a person can have. Normally we compose happy songs with Major chords. But sometimes, we also can compose a sad melody and make the song happy with happy and positive words and a tune.

Examples – Using chords like C, D, E

B) Sad and depressed – We can hear an increased tension in vocal cords. Also, when we compose sad songs, we normally use Minor chords to create a dull feeling. Tempo also will be very low according to the feeling. 

Examples – Am, Em 

C) Angry and fiery – Little bit the voice will be higher when a person is angry or fiery. We can use a high tempo for these types of songs. Examples – C# Minor, F# Minor

Vocal changes over moods

People tend to change the pitch of their voice depending on who they are talking to, and how dominant they feel, a study by the University of Stirling has found.

The psychology research, published in PLOS ONE, put participants through a simulated job interview task and discovered that individuals' vocal characteristics -- particularly pitch -- are altered in response to people of different social statuses.

We should control ourselves in every situation whenever we have differences in our moods. Then only we are able to balance our lives and take the maximum out of it.
