i haven't watched the video yet, but if he can hit G-7, he should also be able to hit a perfectly audible C-1 (the lowest note on a Bösendorfer Imperial piano with an extended bass range). I'd be more interested in establishing that before we start talking about elephant notes.

I don't think Tim Storms is as amazing as they say, it just sounds like vocal fry, instead of singing, to me. Try singers like Vladimir Miller, or, Yuri Wichniakov.

Another idea:

1. Record this G-7 on equipment with a suitable frequency response range.
2. Speed the "tape" up to a note within the range of human hearing.

They do it for whale songs (in the other direction at least), they can do it for this guy.

I know I'm geeking out here but it's the article's fault for getting the terminology correct. (Though they could have said which "low E" they were referring to- I assume it's E0, which is indeed quite low, but a singer who says he has a low E usually means E1.)

What's more impressive to me is that he has a range of TEN octaves. That's absolutely incredible. More than a piano. They should record him singing in black bass, bass, baritone and some tenor and put it together. He could be his own men's choir.

Came here to say this.
 
Never heard the term "vocal fry" before, but indeed I can do that.  Not really all that special.  I do have a deep voice, though I'm not that good of a singer.

Is his heart on fire for Elvira?

Met that guy, at a concert in Liberal, KS, just when they were changing from Christian music. Just when Elvira came out. I asked him if he had any kind of surgery on his vocal chords. He assured me he hadn't. Beautiful voice.

/Also like the guy that does the Allstate commercials. Jolly Green Giant voice over wasn't bad either. Way back when (I'm an old fart) the 7Up commercials.

Watching that vid; I just shait myself a little.

0.189 Hz? Hey, I can hit that "note" too -- by inhaling and exhaling once every 5 or 6 seconds.

If they're claiming his vocal cords can actually oscillate at that frequency, well, no -- they might wiggle back and forth, but it's a different mechanism, and it's not coupling acoustic energy into the air in any meaningful way.

I'd be interested in an article that isn't garbled.
 
2012-08-25 01:54:33 PM
Smells like bullshiat. He says he can feel it but obviously can't hear it.

How can he be sure it's just not a gas bubble moving thru his gut?

Bull. People can hear notes down to around 15 hz; lower than that the sounds should still be audible, but as clicks or pulses, not tones.

FTA: "Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and raised in Waterloo, Indiana, Storms's musical affinity appeared at a young age. Just four days after graduating from high school he began his career in Christian music and has since appeared in a number of singing groups.:

From Wikipedia: "Although born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Storms was raised in Waterloo, Indiana. His musical affinity appeared at a young age. Four days after graduating high school, he returned to Oklahoma to begin his career in Christian music. Since then, Storms has appeared with a number of singing groups, including Freedom, Vocal Union, AVB, Acappella (group), and Rescue. He also performed with the cast of Branson's "50's at the Hop," was voted Branson's Bass Singer of the Year for three years in a row, and is in the Branson's Entertainers Hall of Fame. Storms joined Pierce Arrow Theater at the beginning of the 2006 season."

So?

People copy shiat.

I'm more offended at "Storms's" being used in the "professionally" written article.
 
2012-08-25 03:00:32 PM
It's just a bad article, folks. You could google. His voice (such as, at the lowest registers, it's a voice) has been measured electronically, etc. You can go to YouTube and see him making inaudibly low notes that nonetheless create rhythmic patterns in water, etc, if you really care.

He's at the edge of the bell curve for this stuff, but it's not unprecedented or terribly controversial. Just weird.

So wait, you're saying this ISN'T an article about Leonard Cohen?
