Our method of procedure, so far, has been that ofthe craftsman who fashions an instrument in such a way that the skilled executant is enabled to evoke the most aesthetically satisfying tone of which the instrument is capable. It is to this end that the separation of the vibrator and resonator is necessary. By examining and developing the resonator on its own merits by means of the whispered voice, we have prepared the way for the introduction of the element of note, so that this may be reinforced and amplified to the full by the open, expanded resonator.
