Voice artist will read Ruskin's description of J.M.W. Turner's painting, "Slave Ship." Both the painting and Ruskin's description of it are intense. Therefore the voice actor must convey the gravitas of the scene without descending into melodrama. The reading should be grave, awestruck, sorrowful, steady, wondrous...

Voice artists with experience in theater are preferred.

The voice artist should familiarize him/herself with the painting, J.M.W. Turner's "Slave Ship" prior to recording narration.

Script Details

*** Please submit custom audition. 
John Ruskin: The whole surface of sea is divided into two ridges of enormous swell. The fire of the sunset falls along the trough of the sea, dying it with an awful but glorious light, the lurid splendor which burns like gold and bathes like blood. Purple and blue, the lurid shadows of the hollow breakers are cast upon the mist of the night, which gathers cold and low, advancing like the shadow of death upon the guilty ship. The whole picture is dedicated to the most sublime of subject and impression—the power, majesty, and deathfulness of the open, deep, illimitable sea. 
Please note that you should only use the script or your recording of it for auditioning purposes. The script is property, unless otherwise specified, of the voice seeker and it is protected by international copyright laws.
