I'm reading 'A Virtual Love' by Andrew Blackman and as well as enjoying a very current story, I keep admiring his technical ability to narrate as seven different characters.
In the wrong hands this approach can be confusing, or the signposts are too obvious, or some of the voices can end up sounding too similar. But here each chapter flows smoothly, including a grandfather, a girlfriend, a best mate and a boss, and offers such interesting insights to propel the story.
The interview with Andrew posted today on The Undercover Soundtrack is a great insight into how he used music to help capture the different voices he needed.
I love being surprised by the voices or identities artists can assume convincingly. And here's a couple of surprises in music videos where the voice was quite different to what I was expecting!
Stay tuned for future posts with "time out tracks"
