Abstract [en]

The perception of modal and falsetto registers was analyzedin a material consisting of a total of 80 vowel sounds sung by10 choir singers, 40 sung in modal register and 40 in falsettoregister. These vowel sounds were classified by sixteenexpert listeners in a force choice test and the number of votesfor modal was compared with the voice source parameters (1)Closed Quotient (Qclosed)and (2) level difference between thetwo lowest source spectrum partials (H1 – H2). Tones with ahigh value of Qclosed and low values of H1-H2 weretypically associated with high number of votes for modalregister, and vice versa, Qclosed showing the strongestcorrelation. Some singer subjects produced tones that couldnot be classified as either falsetto or modal register,suggesting that category perception of registers is not alwaysfeasible.
