Comment: You can hear the over dominant chest voice here. Cornelius is using the oo vowel to temper the aggressiveness of the chest voice.

Quote: ...the physical contour of the vocal folds is strongly influenced by certain vowel phonemes...although these muscle systems are involuntary, they can be stimulated by means of appropriately selected patterns of pitch, intensity and vowel, and made to respond in a spontaneous, yet predictable, manner, making it possible to control laryngeal muscular activity through the construct of a vocal exercise.
