    most modern contraltos sing with a kind of woofy, collapsed headvoice that sounds a bit like a counter tenor and have somewhat forced chest voices.

    one of my favorites is Marie Powers

    Diana Ankudinova could be the one for the ages with her dramatic contralto and unique timbre. But she doesn't want to be an opera or a classical singer. Here's her, aged 14, performing a Russian folk song. She turns 18 on May 31.

    When I hear John Cage’s 4’33”, I reach for my earplugs.
