Project Main Details

Voice Over for Six Short Apocalyptic 3D Animations 
The videos are a part of a multimedia art project that includes 6 printable timelines that each correspond to one of the six animations, and an instrument that creates a unique soundtrack from each of these. The project is funded by the Danish Arts Council, Aarhus City, published by the non-profit organisation Double Dagger and distributed via their home page https://dobbeltdagger.net/.

The voice over in the video will be accompanied by a computer animation and sound effects that will both be added at a later stage.

This is a voice of the far future, so we are looking for something that is slightly
androgynous or perhaps hard to place in terms of accent. While it is probably not possible to get a voice that does not belong to any geographic region, age and gender at all, the less identifiable it is voice is, the better.

The six animations are meant to be watched both in succession, separately on their own. Each of them has a different theme, and the voice over for each part should reflect a change from the other, while also fitting together as a whole. Acting should be realistic rather than cartoonish, without appearing obviously weird, or moving to far from a basic position of a factual presenter. This is the voice of an observer who is mostly located outside of the action, reflecting on it, rather than someone affected by narratives that unfold (apart from part 6).

Please feel free to riff of the material to achieve a good vocal rhythm, pausing as needed if sentences are too long, or parts of the text are difficult. As it was not written by a native English speaker idiomatic errors or inconsistencies might appear in the manuscript, feel free to record variations that sound more authentically English to you.

This is a lot of text to ingest as a listener, so the overall reading should vary in pace to provide a bit of dynamism, while retaining a fairly relaxed pace overall, with clear pauses so the voice over can be shortened or lengthened in editing.

NB: The script is being proof read as I write this, so the final word count might be 20 words more or less than the 4600 below.

Script Details

[From part 1 style: Clear, deliberate, insightful, Serious, calm, important, informative.]

Roughly 12.000 ago that conventional and familiar apocalyptic event called the Ice Age came to an end. The history books today tell us that the thick ice crust that had covered much of the earths northern hemisphere started to melt brining light to bit of a long forgotten landscapes that had been push about and changed by the passage of ice.

[From part 5 Style: Deep, breathy, heated, excited]

As language evolves beyond biology, we might retain bits of today’s language to describe the highly exotic entities our bodies will become. The parts of our language that accelerate into the exotic consciousness we are becoming will reshape, augment or supplant parts of our bodies. Fragmented and refracted versions of who we think we are today, our descendants’ behaviour will elude today’s definitions of discernible consciousness as they manipulate their physical bodies to conform to the dictates of a new and unimaginable language.

[From part 6 style: thoughtful, reflective, a sense of urgency, significant]

In the future the virus of contemporary art might find a new home among ants, and there contribute less useful and more pleasurable aspects to their building activities. But probably the infection has already started - as the blackbird sings the latest hits from the radio or Bach, and one wonders who has inspired whom. Maybe the blackbird’s song heralds a coming apocalypse, or perhaps it merely the soundtrack of an already unfolding apocalypse?
