Performance Notes

From an early age I’ve always loved voices. From quoting movies or television to impersonating celebrities and friends, I’ve always loved the variance found in the human voice. From strong and commanding to frantic and fearful in an instant, the dynamic range of emotion which can be communicated by the human voice is staggering. It is incredible the difference you can hear just by saying the same sentence in different ways. (I’m reminded of the famous grammar joke “Let’s eat, Grandma!” or “Let’s eat grandma!”) A person’s voice is a unique fingerprint. There is always a certain camber and essence to a person’s voice which is their own which embodies their personality and soul that cannot be replicated. So what is my voice like you ask? Well, Imagine Patrick Stewart’s voice. Now imagine it with a little bit of Morgan Freeman mixed in. Now drizzle on a bit of Christopher Lee and a dash of Liam Neeson. Can you hear that voice in your head now? Good. This narrator's voice sounds nothing like that… (Other than it is also male). But this narrator's voice does have something. The big names listed above are memorable for a reason. They do more than just deliver lines, they command a presence through tone and inflection. The best orators deliver narration that makes you feel their words represent the unequivocal truth of how a character feels and who they are as a person (or otherwise). Audio books are a unique medium of expression and require careful consideration about the character, and how they would authentically express themselves in real life. Done well, this adds a new layer of insight into the story, creating a full and enriching experience. The way in which people speak is as unique to them as their fingerprint. I try to demonstrate this in my reading by choosing voices that are unique, but not distracting; natural, but not flat. Clean editing and even volume and tone are further keys to an enjoyable and atmospheric experience. In my original vocation I am a Licensed Professional Engineer so attention to detail and promptness are an understood expectation. Expect clean audio and prompt completion. Let's tell a story.
