Peder Karlsson's exercises for Blend/Tone colours

Excerpt from the content:

In rhythmic vocal groups all singers need to feel that they are important for the development of the whole group. This is necessary for an organic process where each singer takes individual responsibility. These exercises build a foundation for the group’s ability to find a collective blend based on a deep knowledge of the contributions of each person. This paper guides you through each step in a series of blend exercises. The goal is for each person to be able to follow any other person’s timbre, while singing.

Every group and singers should read this, and do this...there is no acappella singing without listening and feeling each others. Thanks
