This is really really interesting to me. I am so tempted to try this but am wondering how it would affect the singer.
..........depends if the singer has perfect pitch and they are reading music, then it can be a bit of a nightmare. In classical music it has more of an impact. I trained as a tenor and for higher voices it can be either a bitch or a blessing. With some European orchestras who tune to a higher pitch for example and you are singing a piece for which the composer wrote a high c.......well it's the former. But if you are playing with a baroque orchestra where they sometimes play a semi tone lower......it's all gravy.
