Moving while sounding, sounding while moving. Moving both the invisible internal body and arms, legs, head and trunk, while sounding whatever the voice wants, my voice comes from my whole body and expresses my whole being. We are exploring the unknown, and there is no end in sight. I have never heard a bad voice.
