Tomato, Tomahto...

Leaving the Studio
Today's Job Done, originally uploaded by Jim Edgar Voices.

Got a nice-way-to-start-your-day phone call this morning. Any day that starts with a "Can you come in to record?" question is by any measure a fine day.

It seems that the folks at the National Palace Museum in Taiwan had decided to re-change some previous changes on pronunciations, and so Antenna Audio needed me to come out for a final short session ASAP. Slid some tasks around on the day's schedule and eased out to their studio early this afternoon.

An excellent exercise in "matching" - tone, cadence, intent. All those things that are always important, but even more so at the intimate level of audiotours. Had Thom Pinto's always-excellent advice ringing in my ears from the weekend class, rolling into the pickups by including the sentence before. Went well, it did.

According to my director, they were actually sending the files over today, so if you are in Taipei, and happen to get a chance to take in the Yongzheng Emperor exhibit, I'd encourage you to get the audiotour as well!
