Lax Vox Tube Singing | Universal Voice International

Lax Vox Tube Singing | Universal Voice International

Lax Vox stands for Free Voice. Lax Vox or Tube singing or speaking means using a straw or tube so the vocal folds can vibrate more freely. The principle is already introduced in 1904 as a method by Spiess. Marketta Sihvo and dr. Ilter Denizoglu re-introduced this in 2007 in Groningen, The Netherlands. We at Universal Voice Institute started using Lax Vox from 2007 and have been developing Lax Vox into a solid program for Singers and Speakers. How to use Lax Vox: We use a 33cm long and 1 cm in diameter tube of Silicone material. (You can order the lax vox tube trough our website). (Children need a shorter tube, around 28cm) You need a bottle of water filled half way with water. You bring the Lax Vox tube in the water for about approximately 3 cm for female voices, 4 cm for male voices. The tube goes for around 1 cm between the lips in your mouth. You are then in a “U” lip-position. How to start: First blow your air through the tube in a quiet pace, around 6 to 8 bubbles per second. After gently blowing air slowly add the vowel “U”. Say the “U” vowel low and maintain a loudness of 4 (mezzo piano) on a scale of 0 till 10. Try to say the vowel “U” in the lax vox tube for as long as comfortably possible. Repeat this for about one or two minutes. Check that your cheeks are loose and vibrating with the bubbles. You can play a bit with the depth of the tube in the water. Less deep is easier, deeper in the water is a bit more effort. In a second exercise you can glide up and down in a relaxed comfortable range. Not too high gently up and down maintaining your loudness level 4. Then you can gradually go higher or lower. Singers can use the lax vox to extend their range in all kind of warming up exercises. Simply sing exercises using the lax vox for as long as you like. Sing not too loud, mezzo forte, so you can easily stretch your vocal folds and make easy registers transitions, going from mode 1 to mode 2 and back. Your voice will start working free and easy. The true vocal folds are in a balanced vibrating mode. The sub glottal pressure is more balanced with the supra glottal pressure because of the pressure the tube generates in the water. Therefor the vocal folds stretch easily, so you will be able to sing from low to high with any audible transition. You are bridging the two registers, the two modes of your chest and head voice. The bubbling of the water will massage your vocal folds slightly with around 6 to 8 pulsations a second. The tissue and muscles of your larynx will restore and benefit from this relaxing massage. So it is one of the best recovering methods after big concerts, a lot of loud speaking or singing, after a football match or any kind of vocal work that you might have done during a day. For speech therapists this is one of the best tools to restore damaged voices, hoarse voices, breathy voices or voices which need therapy after surgery.

Using the Lax Vox Tube for singing needs sometimes some special adjustments. Especially for range! When you want to sing higher with the Lax Vox tube you need to adjust the depth of the tube in the water. I recommend 2cm for female singers and 3 cm for male singers when you sing higher. You can experiment with this: You can even go to only 1cm for female singers. The rule for adjusting the depth of the tube has to do with the Sub Glottal Pressure. Higher notes have stretched vocal folds with less mass. Therefore they have less Sub Glottal pressure. So you Supra Glottal pressure delivered by the resistance of the tube and the water should become slightly less too. So bring the tube a bit less deep in the water and do quick exercises. Sing really gently light, not loud. You can add more airflow in the higher range. Again not more pressure but more flow. You will get an easier access to your higher range when you sing less loud with more breath flow. You can even go to Falsetto Character, a breathy high character, so you will stretch your vocal folds easier. The thinner the vocal folds are, the more they are stretched. Thinner, stretched folds do vibrate easier for higher frequencies. The Lax Vox Tube will make you sing higher notes easier than normally. Develop your range by singing on the Lax Vox Tube in exercises and in singing your songs or aria’s. Enjoy singing easy and effortless!

Lax Vox of Voice bubbling is een stemmethode voor sprekers en zangers. Deze instructie film is is speciaal voor cliënten, zangers en studenten die deze methode aanleren om toe te passen als stemtherapie, warming up of cooling down. Lax vox betekent letterlijk relaxatie van de stem en wordt veelal gebruikt als een soort massage van de stem. Deze methode wordt gebruikt bij intensieve stemgebruikers, bij mensen met stemklachten, stemrevalidatie en als warming van de stem of cooling down voor zangers. Lax vox begint met bubbelen, waarbij de stem, de keel en de spieren eromheen ontspannen. Deze ervaring kan doorgetrokken worden bij het spreken en het zingen. De siliconen buis is dan als hulpstuk voor het bereiken van een ontspannen en helder stemgeluid niet meer nodig. Meer informatie via www.voiceinprogress.nl
