The voice box contains the two vocal cords. They are strips of material that are next to each other, edge to edge. When air comes up from the lungs, through the trachea, it passes through the vocal cords. When you choose to make a sound, the air causes the vocal cords vibrate, and the sound continues up and out through the mouth.
