Human vocal production is a phenomenon that requires the development of complex integration skills in ourselves, with elaborate features that have contributed to our evolution and distinct status of human beings. Our voice, which gave birth to language, expresses the different qualities of relationship between ourselves and our physical and cultural environment. It also serves as a tool to assert our status and rights within our social order. To fulfill those needs, we must develop a clear image of the physical movements necessary to produce the intended sounds, to organize these movements in space and coordinate their timing.
