What do you suppose will satisfy the soul, except to walk free and
own no superior?

— Walt Whitman

It is not recognized in the full amplitude of the word that all freedom
is essentially self-liberation — that I can have only so much
freedom as I procure for myself by my ownness.

Oh my! Dougly's full of quotes today!

To take what there is, and use it, without waiting forever in vain for the preconceived — to dig deep into the actual and get something
out of that — this doubtless is the right way to live.

Please Try Not To Think Too Much.



"...That ever my spirit turned my steps
To the naked morning lands
And I came to rest on an unknown isle -
Jade cliffs and silver sands.

And I breathed my last with a simple tribe,
A people savage and free,
And they gave my body unto the fire
And my soul to the reinless sea."

In dieser Studie wurde das öffentlich zugängliche Tonmaterial des Sängers Freddie Mercury akustisch analysiert. Es wurde eine mittlere Sprechstimmlage von ungefähr 109 bis 128 Herz und ein Singstimmumfang von drei Oktaven (G bis g'', ca. 98 -- 784 Hz) festgestellt. Freddie Mercury war von der Sprechstimmlage her Bariton, sang jedoch meistens in Tenorlage. Das Stimmtimbre zeigte sich sehr variabel. Freddie Mercury sang sowohl im Brust- als auch im Falsett-Register, der Grad der glottischen Adduktion wurde abhängig vom ästhetischen Kontext entlang der Dimension "behaucht"/"gepresst" variiert. Die Stimme hatte ein unregelmäßiges und schnelles Vibrato (ca. 7 Hz) mit relativ weiter Auslenkung (ca. 1.5 Halbtöne). Das stellenweise "raue" Stimmtimbre ist auf subharmonische Oszillations-Phänomene (Periodenverdopplung) im Larynx zurückzuführen. Der Gesamteindruck einer Stimme, welche bis ans Limit ausgereizt wurde, ist durchaus kompatibel mit der exzentrischen Künstlerpersönlichkeit Freddie Mercurys.

This study provides an acoustical analysis of Freddie Mercury's voice, mostly based on the commercially available a-cappella sound material. The average speaking fundamental frequency was in the range of 109 -- 128 Hz and the singing voice range stretched across three octaves (G2 -- G5, ca. 98 -- 784 Hz). Theses results suggest that Freddie Mercury was a Baritone who sang as a Tenor. Being able to flexibly adjust his voice timbre, he sang in both chest and head (falsetto) voice. He was capable of manipulating glottal adduction along the dimension of breathy vs. pressed, varying with aesthetical context. Freddie Mercury's voice was characterized by an irregular and fast vibrato (ca. 7 Hz) with a relatively large amplitude of about 1.5 semi-tones. The perceptually rougher sounds were likely to be caused by subharmonic oscillatory phenomena (period doubling, tripling and quadrupling) in the larynx. In conclusion, the collected data suggests that Freddie Mercury drove his voice well to its limits, which is in good agreement with his eccentric stage persona.

Elephants can communicate using sounds below the range of human hearing ("infrasounds'' below 20 hertz). It is commonly speculated that these vocalizations are produced in the larynx, either by neurally controlled muscle twitching (as in cat purring) or by flow-induced self-sustained vibrations of the vocal folds (as in human speech and song). We used direct high-speed video observations of an excised elephant larynx to demonstrate flow-induced self-sustained vocal fold vibration in the absence of any neural signals, thus excluding the need for any "purring'' mechanism. The observed physical principles of voice production apply to a wide variety of mammals, extending across a remarkably large range of fundamental frequencies and body sizes, spanning more than five orders of magnitude.
