Presumption is always normal singing/speaking/whispering. When something else is wanted, it's marked with the different circles. Circles are valid until a different circle. Also when staff and/or noteheads change, normal singing/speaking/whispering is to begin, if no other information is given. Dynamics are always relative. For example forte in whispering is more quiet than mf in speaking or stage whispering.

strong mimic only!
