What makes a voice weird?

  • What makes a voice weird?

    Question says it all, really. What's your definition of a weird voice?

  • A few criteria, if you ask me:

    -An audible lack of training, e.g., noticeable sour notes and inconsistent timbre.
    -A thick accent certainly helps.
    -Veering wildly between high and low pitch, but not in an ostentatious diva-like way.
    -A certain "texture" to a voice, whether it's gravelly, bleaty or yelping as if one is being choked.
    -Having a certain non-singing singing style. Mark E. Smith is an expert at this.
    -Basically, any kind of voice that deviates from the norm heard on mainstream radio, and makes an uninitiated listener sit up in shock.

    There is no criteria. If there is a criteria, the voice won't be weird. A weird voice can be called Al Jourgensen's nearly death-growling singing, which he makes, well, weirdly. Also another owner of a weird voice is Nick Cave. And Hetfield in his younger years. And even Emilie Autumn. Are there any criteria for the voices? No, if there is it is not weird.

    A non-singing singing style maybe weird itself, but does not make the voice weird. Otherwise Anne Clark might qualify as weird voice, for example. But her voice is not weird at all, is it?

    They don't trust us, why should we trust them, then?
