Why I Sing is a creative-thinking but currently somewhat unfocused blog currently published by Christine Thomas-O’Meally (why, that’s me!).
Recently, I established the Curiously Stronger Performing series, which focuses on specific elements of performance:
- The functional (how to present your music, how to walk into the room, how to talk to the pianist);
- The creative (selecting music, creating themes);
- The expressive (interpreting text, whether in English or another language; developing an inner monologue; physicalizing a song in the most efficient way).
And that’s what this blog needs to do. So a project I’m setting out to do over the next few months is to go through my blogposts and assign them a category.
Blogposts that are specifically about practical things like vocal technique, audition techniques, translating, and diction will go under the area of function.
Blogposts that are about finding new ways to look at things will be about creativity (and possibly about expressivity as well).
Blogposts about interpretation and physicality will be categorized under expressivity.
Announcements will either go under general or will be uncategorized.
Hopefully, this will help organize things so that they’re more easily found.
This will take awhile. Some might go under multiple things. Some of the older blogs might get reworked and updated.
