I want to do a Thing. It is a Thing which
and I hashed out at her kitchen table, and is therefore Awesome.
For this Thing I need your help.
I am going to construct a Podcast Collage. And I need voices. Please volunteer only if serious, and if you can commit to sending in your piece within two weeks, preferably sooner.
This is what will happen:
You will volunteer, because you, too, are Awesome.
I will send you 2 short paragraphs from The Orphan’s Tales–and before you ask, I will assign characters based on who I think fits each beastie best. If you are one of the rare sorts who has already had a chance to read the book, you may request a character with the understanding that I might overrule you.
You will record yourself reading these paragraphs in two separate mp3s and email them to me.
I will assemble the collage and post it on the Orphan’s Tales site by mid-November.
I am looking for all kinds of voices, male and female. I will probably need about a dozen, but I’ll work with whatever I get, volunteer-wise. I am particularly looking for older voices, voices with non-American or strong American-regional accents (I’m looking at you,
and all the rest of you accented folk on my list. Don’t make me list off all the ones I know have voices we mid-Atlantic folks would kill for), but I want regular old standard Americana Received Pronunciation voices, too. If you do have an accent or unusual vocal thing, please make a note of it in your comment.
If you are yourself a writer or artist, participation will earn you a link on the site to your work of choice via the cast list. It’s a nice way to get a little extra promotion, and be part of something terribly cool. If this pans out as I think it will it will be an eerie, beautiful patchwork of voices weaving in and out of each other, and serve as the aural face of the Orphan’s Tales.
