Indead Hank Bahnson did observe exacctly that. The Glottis opens and
closes with the vibrato.
But remember that the sub-glotal system ie. lungs wind pipe etc. are
also an acoustic resonator. So as the glottis opens and closes the
influence of this resonant system on the troat resonance also varies
with the vibrato. This means that the overall vocal tract resonance
is being modulated by the vibrato and therfore so is the playing
