I still can't picture what the neck/throat would look like that contained three-foot-long vocal cords... :shock: :? :lol:
Well, immediately what came to mind was Monica's tongue...

You have to fold the vocal cords... they attach every 1.25" in zig-zag fashion for it to work. With training, one can sing tenor, baritone, bass, alto, soprano and lead all at once..

I knew I was doing something wrong... I can only sing those one at a time...

They're not. They just don't speak English...

No, but they seem to conduct most of their conversations in a very narrow frequency range basically at the bottom of what humans can hear: 20 to 40 hertz.

In the early '70s, I worked at an automated "beautiful music" AM radio station. On Sundays, we'd have a block of paid religious programs, one of which featured Kathryn Kuhlman, one of day's most followed radio evangelists. One Sunday, I racked her tape on the automation in order to use the studio for some production. That's when I made a rather odd discovery...
Broadcast automation of that era used sub-audible tones, specifically 25 Hz, at the end of each selection to signal the system to switch to the next source. I found that Ms. Kuhlman's voice had a natural lower-frequency harmonic. So, as soon as she began speaking, the automation "heard" her voice as a sub-audible step tone and dutifully switched to the next event.

So, a basso prayfundo, was she?

Speaking of the lower frequencies (cause, you know, around here- we aint 'fraid a' no Thread Drift...)

One time I was in the lobby of a movie theatre in Berkeley Ca, and on top of the large and odd shaped space, I had a bit of a cold (helped roll off the mids & highs).

Turns out I was able to vocalize a reverb in the room. Very strange feeling to 'feel' the "Hmmmmm..." and see people looking around without knowing where it was coming from...

Perhaps practicing her bass singing so that she can upstage us all.
