Electroglottographic assessment of Tahrir, a persian vocal technique

Abstract : One of the most remarkable characteristics of Persian classical singing is the tahrir technique, an ornament of the melodic line which consists in producing one or more short frequency jumps - called tekye - towards higher pitches. The change in laryngeal mechanism underlying tekye has been reported by different authors. It has recently been questioned, yet without laryngeal-behaviour assesment. To clarify laryngeal physiology in Iranian tahrir, the singing production of two professional Iranian singers was acoustically and electrographically assessed.
