Starting out from Manuel Garcia, attention is paid to the work of outstanding personalities having excelled both in performing arts as singers as well as in scientific elaborations. The main focus will be on two aspects: the controversies about the principles of voice production as provoked by Raoul Husson and his revolutionary ideas, and the influence of the vocal tract on the formation of the sound of the voice. Both of these topics offer the opportunity of referring to the basic contributions of the Groningen voice research pioneers Janwillem van den Berg and his scholar Harm Schutte. For the online edition, supplementary material in the form of video and audio clips contributes to a kaleidoscopic compilation of a series of selected fragments representing the fascinating field of the human voice.
