Rich Matheson

Character Specialist, Comedy, Dialects

Voice Description

My voice ranges from deep and warm to high and raspy, depending on what is required. I have a lot of experience doing different characters and dialects, so projects like audiobooks which require a wide range of voices could benefit from my versatility.

My Voice Experience

I developed a love of audio drama at an early age, and recently discovered the reemergence of the medium via the internet. For the past three years I have been both acting in and mixing audio drama podcasts. In 2011 I began my own audio drama podcast called Keeg's Quest: A Skyrim Adventure, which won a Parsec Award for Best Short Form Audio Drama in 2012. In it, I play over 20 distinct characters to date. I also write and mix the show.

I have a recurring role in a Scottish audio drama playing a Scotsman, and assorted minor roles in other productions.

I am also an accomplished mixer, and am currently mixing audio drama for Colonial Radio Theater, so I can easily deliver a completed, edited product.

My Training

I have very elementary voice training from high school musical theater and took some basic theater classes in college. While I have no formal advanced training, I am currently involved in two local community theaters as well as the online audio drama community. I am hoping to find formal voice and acting training locally.

My Studio Equipment

I am using a Miktek CV-4 microphone with an RME Babyface USB interface. I will also be adding a Universal Audio LA-610 MkII preamp/compressor within the next few months. I record and edit on Adobe Audition CC. My studio is treated with Next Acoustics SoundTrax Pro foam.

Additional Skills

I have been a web and graphic designer for 14 years, and an audio drama mixer for 5 years (two years professionally). I also enjoy writing and possess strong grammar skills. While not fluent, can speak Spanish and Russian.
