I need your voice. And your language.
Here is the thing: I am working on this composition? It is an ensemble piece, with a tuba and a double bass at the center, surrounded by a xylophone, glockenspiel, harp, cello and perhaps something else. It is based on this post.
I would also like to incorporate voices, as follows: I would like to play, as part of the piece, a loop consisting of a number of voices reading a text I have written. The voices may be distorted or otherwise altered. I would like to have readers of a variety of ages and genders. Although the text is in English, I would also like to have it read in other languages, so if you are in the mood to do this, and could translate it and read it in a language other than English, that would be excellent. Since this weblog has a very international readership, I thought I would ask here first.
Here are a few details:
- I cannot pay anything, at least not at this point. This is an amateur production. I also have no plans to use this commercially.
- Recording quality is not a high priority. Background noise is even okay, especially if it’s bar noise. Computer microphone, cell phone, etc is okay.
- MP3 would be easiest for me.
- As mentioned, the more languages, and dialects of English, and types of speakers, the better.
- I will need you to give me permission to use your voice in the loop for this composition. I suppose permission in the email sending me the MP3 file would be sufficient.
- The sooner the better.
Besides several varieties of English, I think regulars here also include speakers of Turkish, Danish, French, German, Czech, and Dutch, and I think without looking too far we could find other languages as well. If you are interested in participating, please let me know. A good email to use would be metamorphosist at gmail.com
The text in question is included in the extended entry part of this post. Thank you in advance.
