Job Description

This project is part of a non-commercial art exhibition in Grand Rapids, Michigan funded out of pocket by the artist. The artist (sculptor) want to obtain a recording of a reading of Herman Melville's short story "The Lightning-Rod Man" (2662 words). This audio recording will be part of soundtrack played through a speaker system, as part of the experience of the art exhibition.

"Voice is male, middle-age, and literary. I like the voice and reading of these two samples on audible (although I am happy with an american accent):

http://www.audible.com/pd/ref=sr_1_15?asin=B002V8MC0U&qid=1345612367&sr=1-15

The project is about lightning, fear, and desire, so the tone of the voice/characters should reflect fear-based sales tactics, but not be over-the-top.

File format: wave or aif

Thank you!"
