Abstract [en]

The Swedish cattle call singing style ‘kulning’ issurprisingly understudied, despite its almostmythical status in Swedish folklore. While somephysiological-productive aspects of kulning havebeen treated in previous work, acoustic propertiesare still much lacking description. This paper addsto and extends the results presented in a previousstudy [7], where kulning and head voice (“falsetto”)was acoustically analysed in two indoor settings:a normal room and an anechoic chamber. In thepresent study, the same singer, singing the samekulning in the same two modes (kulning and headvoice), was recorded in an outdoor setting (close tothe singer’s home), thus allowing for a comparisonbetween “clinical” and more ecologically valid data.
