Re: HYPHENIC - Want to read for an art project?

Cool! I've already sent away for a decent microphone, and am going to see if I can resurrect an old Mbox and Protools setup that's stashed away in the apartment somewhere. :D I see I'm a bit late, but are you still looking for readers? I'm an artist from Los Angeles, CA. I have a low, pleasant voic...

Re: HYPHENIC - Want to read for an art project?

Hello everyone! Our exhibition is approaching (way too quickly) and we still lack a few readers. I apologise if we haven´t communicated perfectly with all of you, but there´s been so much going on at the same time. We really need some male readers right now, preferable native English speakers, Briti...

Re: HYPHENIC - Want to read for an art project?

I see I'm a bit late, but are you still looking for readers? I'm an artist from Los Angeles, CA. I have a low, pleasant voice and a neutral, fairly malleable accent that people in other countries often have a hard time placing at first. I'm new to Librivox, and just had my first recording approved:...

Hello Tor-Finn,

I really appreciate your comments. I am using Audacity. I have lowered the volume and the updated version can be found at the following link:

Re: HYPHENIC - Want to read for an art project?

Hi Tor-Finn, This looks like a fun project. If you could use another female voice, I'd be happy to help out! I don't have so much as a "real" accent, but English people often think I have a subtle Irish accent (in reality, I'm not a native speaker, which is why my accent doesn't really fit a geogra...

Australian accent here.

Re: HYPHENIC - Want to read for an art project?

Hello Chad!

Thanks for showing interest. I really like your voice and your accent. The audio quality is very poor though. Would you be able to improve this? I will PM you shortly.

Re: HYPHENIC - Want to read for an art project?

Does any of you know if there are some male Scottish readers on here? We also need some male, mature voices. Recommendations are really appreciated!

Re: HYPHENIC - Want to read for an art project?

Devorah: We would definitely be keen on using your voice. If I´m not wrong you have a kind of neutral American accent? If you are willing to try it out we could send you a text we think suitable. Yes, I'd be willing to try it. I do think of my accent as a kind of neutral American. Sometimes with ju...

Greetings Librivoxers!

My name is Tor-Finn and I´m a visual artist from Norway. I did send some time on the forum a few years back looking for readers for an art project, but now I can´t find my old posts anymore. Because I had such a good experience collaborating with some of you, I´ve now returned with a much larger pro...

sounds fun!
german accent here, reader page is in my signature

As I also told Availle, I think there might be some texts that could suit a German accent later in the process. We will let you know! Again, thank you so much for showing interest!

Re: HYPHENIC - Want to read for an art project?

Maybe - I played Lady McPhail with a scottish accent in "The Cabinet Minister". Have a listen, and if you like it let me know. There are not many genuine Scots here, so a fake Scottish accent might be the closest version you can get! https://librivox.org/the-cabinet-minister-by-arthur-wing-pinero/ ...

Re: HYPHENIC - Want to read for an art project?

It sounds like an interesting project! I'm interested in learning more, although I don't know if I'm ready to commit just yet. My reader page is linked below, when you click on my name. One question that comes to mind immediately is: Would we have to learn Hyphenic to participate? Because that soun...
