Project Main Details

Drums Percussion Ensemble 
I am seeking a voice over talent who can deliver a script/reading that is ideal for a short documentary-type film. This short film will be shown as part of an introductory segment to a live music performance called ******************

This event (two concerts total) is performed by amateur student musicians/percussionists from ****************************************** The film for this particular segment of the program is intended to explain the history and performance practice of the percussion ensemble. This ensemble will perform in a wide variety of styles and represent music from notable early 20th century composers such as Edgard Varese and John Cage to contemporary luminaries the likes of Steve Reich.

I am interested in voices/readings that are sincere, genuine and trustworthy and can be readily associated with documentary films.

I’d enjoy hearing a reading of the included script, even if it’s an excerpt. Thank you.

Script Details

I am interested in voices/readings that are sincere, genuine and trustworthy and can be readily associated with documentary films.  
Born in the early decades of the 20th century, the percussion ensemble was conceived for the performance of independent percussion music.  Prior to 1930, percussion was used primarily for musical color and punctuation in the symphony orchestra.  

Experimental composers such as Edgard Varese, John Cage and Lou Harrison looked to percussion as a tool that allowed them to venture into uncharted musical territories while exploring infinite possibilities in sound. Utilizing their exposure to musical cultures outside of the European tradition, these early 20th century maverick composers created a new world of organized sound and self-sufficient music for percussion.  As a result, art music created purely for and by percussion instruments would be forever changed.

The evolution of the percussion ensemble tradition has since experienced massive growth in scope and popularity, spanning multiple genres of musical styles while maintaining the essence of what makes this entity unique.  The spectrum of sound possibilities-all generated from a single family of instruments-offers a musical voice that is capable of delivering both powerful impact and delicate subtlety.
