This audiobook, wonderfully produced by my friend Julia Scott, explores many facets of voice and vocal performance from the point of view of a voice actor and performer. Engaging, charming, and fun.
Inside Voice unpacks the writer-director-producer-actor’s obsession with voice and all its permutations. It takes us on a journey to discover how this vital piece of our identity serves as an x-ray of our personal histories. Bell explored the power of voice in her critically-acclaimed and award-winning film, In a World, which she wrote, directed, and starred in. With this audiobook, she dives back into the rabbit hole to deliver a fun, whip-smart exploration of the psychology, social science, cultural constructs, and mechanics of our voices.
What I love about this book, above all else, is that it can only exist in an audio format. The reading and performance would not translate to the written word. At all.
