"You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.”
Bruce Lee, what a legend! I adore this quote. One can take it in numerous ways when it comes to the voice. But I like to think of it relating to the flow. Let your voice be like water. It's amazing how it can do so much and create so many different sounds on so many different pitches. We create the obsticals for water to go around. Sometimes, we build a dam (tension) and it stops our flow. Stop and take a breath if your finding a word difficult.
Learn to flow. Let it flow. Let your voice flow. Create your own style.
