Project Main Details

George Mason University Indoor Drumline 

Thank you for auditioning for our voiceover project. We are an indoor drumline based out of George Mason University in Fairfax, VA, and we are looking for a female voice actor to lyrically read through the script below to be inserted into our 2016 production "Crystallize," a video of which can be seen here:

Ultimately, there are a lot of possibilities with how these words can be read, and our main goal will be clarity of articulation (being that it will be projected overtop of a percussion ensemble). The overall aesthetic of the show at the moments the voiceovers will be inserted is intriguing, inviting, charming, and even a bit romantic. Some moments (like the pre-show) might be more spoken, and others (like movement 2) might be more song-like.

I have included timing cues in the text below, although it is not a perfect science. We will end up chopping up the audio you give us and sampling it live in-person to fit exactly where it needs to go. Thanks once again, and we look forward to reviewing your auditions.

Script Details

PRE-SHOW (starts at 0:01 in the video, finishes before snare drummer enters, which can be pushed back later if need be for natural timing of the words)
We live our lives like crystal palaces,
Delicate diamonds.
Each moment faced with the chance to shatter... or crystallize.

MOVEMENT 2 (starts at 2:10 in the video, lyrically paced so as to avoid speaking over the loudest parts of the front ensemble, ending with "ready to crack" when the stick is hit at 2:50)
Crystal facets of
Star studded diamonds.
Crash-crushing, Shattering
Brittle lattices, fractured.
Scattering facets of
Sparkling crystal.
Glittering, gleaming, shimmering, shining
Ready to crack.

MOVEMENT 3 (starts at 4:45, lyrically spoken as if in a lullaby, ends before the metal sounds at 4:58)
In moments of stress, mineral molecules search for structure.
They chime for each other, seek and find each other,
Still crystal clear.

MOVEMENT 4 (starts at 6:00 with the annoying metronome sound [which was just for rehearsal's sake and will not ultimately be in the mix], lyrically paced so as to avoid speaking over the loudest parts of the front ensemble, ending by 6:10 if not earlier)
Under pressure all things come together
Waiting for their moment to crystallize.
