Learnt today how we create sounds and the parts of the vocal system in humans which was awesome. But also learnt what creates the difference in pitch between males/women. Apparently as a man gets elderly, the pitch of their voice will rise again slightly as their vocal folds loosen.
So I spent the rest of the lesson trying to image Benedict Cumberbatch and Alan Rickman with higher pitched voices. Really hard not to laugh!
It seems rather impossible for Alan Rickman’s voice to be anything but velvety and deep (◕‿◕✿)
Benedict on the other hand, has done a fine job of mimicking a higher pitch of voice, especially when he’s trying to trick someone as Sherlock (Remember when he pretended to have been beat up and robbed before seeing Irene Adler?)
