Ingo Titze demonstrates an easy technique that uses a simple straw for hard-working voices. Variations of the straw technique has roots in Northern Europe and has been used for several hundred years. Professor Titze has studied this specific technique scientifically resulting in several scientific peer reviewed publications.
Ingo Titze's poem was originally published in his classic textbook, Principles of Voice Production. It reflects a time of frustration with the field of voice science in 1980-90 when voice registers were heatedly debated with word definitions, but little science was offered. Definitions of the terms used in the poem are posted on the website of the National Center for Voice and Speech (www.ncvs.org). The title of the poem, Iowa Corn, is inspired by a definition of corn, referring to a story or statement that is laughable, and Iowa (where Dr. Titze is a distinguished professor of voice science), being located in the center of the U.S. corn belt.

An excerpt from "The World Within Your Voice", Premiere Date:June 26, 2000. "The voice is like a car": Medical experts, graphics and computer animation detail how the human voice works. Note that some of the fine details on how voice is created has already changed since the making of this, for example, vocal folds don't actually have to contact to make sound.
Starring: Jack Klugman, Tony Randall, Ingo Titze, Lori Ramig, Michael Benninger.
Produced by Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) in conjunction with National Center for Voice and Speech (NCVS), The Voice Foundation, Wilber James Gould Voice Recording and Research Center, American Laryngological Voice Research and Education Foundation.

About 40 years ago, there was a neat movie called Fantastic Voyage. In it, a group of scientists shrunk themselves (and their submarine) into teensy proportions and traveled through a human's body to save his life. Well, we thought that idea was just too cool to ignore. So, we invite you to take your own incredible journey inside the body's vocal system.
Operatic tenor sounds produced by a robot with pure mathematics and physics in 1992. No recording or sounds of Pavarotti were used. Only the general anatomy of a tenor voice was used as input.
Our current modeling is even more realistic.
