As I have stated before there is an illusion of the eyes and an illusion of the ears. The illusion of the eyes is magic, which I will discuss seperately at a future date... the illusion of the ears, this is what we are about to discuss here...'Ventriloquism' and just like in magic mis direction or taking one's attention away from the ventriloquist by using a dummy, that is one way in how it works along with tongue and lip control, which comes with practice..practice practice...... I will try to tell you as much as I can here in this installment.. More will be added as we advance. Let us begin.. Well whether you know it or not you already have about 70% of lip control... hold your lips still as you can and say these letters...A C D E G H I J K L N O R S T U X Y Z.. easy wasn't it? Righteo!! But the difficult letters those, all ventriloquists have trouble with, but know how to control their tongue and lip.. and this is where we will be going... Those letters and their substitutions are as follows
B=D OR GEH (BRIGHT IS DRIGHT OR GEH RIGHT (further back in the throat)
V: THE SUN IS BRIGHT TODAY
D: TOO DRIGHT FOR MY EYES (the word is highlighted due to another labial)
The aud is thinking it hears the B but in reality you substituded it with the D, you think
the B but say the D
make a list of words that begin with B but substitute it with a D or a GEH and say these
words about 15 min each time twice a day for a week until your confortable with it before you move on
with the next letter.. We will pause here 1Week later.... ok everyone you all did wonderful,
lets go on to the next labial are you ready? Here goes...
F=th (as in the) fright is th-right now if your gonna use gutteral or deeper sound you might want
to substitute with huh so it might look like huh-right
V why are you Frightened substitute the F for th why are you th-rightened
D I Fear thunder I th-ear thunder
M=Nah or Mister=nah ster or it could be Missouri= neh = neh isouri
V: I went to see my friend in the south
D: Oh your talking about Nahster young in Neh souri
Don't forget to practice those labials 15 min day twice a day
maqke your list and say the words that feel confortable to you, tape record yourself and
listen to your sound if you like it move on if not correct it.
P=K such as in planet would be klanet
V: did the people stay long?
D: No the keople left early double labial the d and the p a little more difficult make your list as easy as possible you just want to substitute letter at this point
make your list of words, I must tell you here, sometimes what works for one as in KL forP
doesn't work for all there are other substitutions.
Q=Koo as in kooiet
V: the library has a sign that says quiet please
D: Don't you nehean kooiet klease
keep on practicing how are you doing I know your having fun keep going.
V= th (sound again) vulnerable would be th ulnerable do you see 2 labials again...this happens
often, and is a little more difficult for the newbie
V= Did you hear the one about the Very nice doctor who loved his patience
D= no but I heard about the thery old katient that never saw a doctor....
The above dialogue is there for your practice not to make sense out of so don't worry...
W=ooh like in when should be oohen did you go to the show?
V The stage show was wonderful I had a great time..
D oohy didn't you take me with you do you see another word with a labial becareful.
REMEMBER PRACTICE 15 MIN TWICE A DAY EACH LABIAL FOR 1 WEEK BEFORE MOVING ON TO THE NEXT ONE. THERE IS NO HURRY WHEN YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING CORRECT IT TAKES JUST A LITTLE LONG...ENJOY HAVE FUN..
