Decompressed overlay distortion employs more pharyngeal resonant space, through a concerted effort to dampen the larynx more with a slight modification to ʌ/uh vowel, as well as a greater use of respiratory glottal bleed. Included in the decompressed overlay is additional twang compression and engagement of the oblique muscles to increase the sub- glottal respiration pressure for the purpose of exciting the ventricular folds.
To produce the decompressed overlay distortion, simply follow the same workflow for compressed overly distortion, but add to it laryngeal dampening, slightly “bleed” (open) the glottis and modify more to an ʌ/uh vowel. The resulting effect is an aesthetic that sounds windier or more “husky”. You can literally hear more wind or respiration in the vocal track when you phonate the decompressed overlay distortion.
Decompressed Overlay Distortion Work Flow
|1. Engage Onset.|
|2. Bridge Registers.|
|3. Achieve Resonant Placement.|
|4. Engage Intrinsic Anchoring.|
|5. Support with Oblique Muscles.|
|6. Dampen Larynx, Bleed The Glottis Slightly & Tune to subtle ʌ/uh vowel.|
