Footage of my own performing

 

It was important that the research had a positive impact on my own performing. I chose three arias on which to focus : Dich Teure Halle, Dove Sono and Signore Ascolta. I then filmed my performances in various lessons, concerts and workshops, with the aim of continuously improving my approach to characterisation as a result of reflecting on each performance.

It was sometimes difficult to ask others to film for me, and the camera work is inconsistent as a result.It was also interesting to note that I was always the only one filming myself, and on offering to film others, only one singer asked me to do so.There seems to be an immense fear of watching oneself, which I  previously discovered in my attempts to film the respondents of the in-depth interviews, but it has been very useful to me, and I will continue to do so.
