Job Description

This is a creative piece not a business piece so we are looking for the creative interpretation of the piece. We have the song and music which both add something, now we want a vocalist to see something in it and finish it.

For the audition only require enough to show your creative take on it, chorus only is fine.


Project Overview

The project is to produce the cover song for the dramatic rendition (audio) of the Novella “The Space In Between”. The Novella is the first of a three part story covering the life of Cathy a complex part organic robot bought up to believe she is human, this part focusing on the secrets of her past hidden from her by both her mother and grandparents.

As the writer/producer of the series I have commissioned for a song to be written. Within the production we have tried to push creative boundaries rather than commercial ones, with the audio going to 2hrs 30 min with a full length musical score, sound effects and we are in the process of recording additional actors to play specific parts in the story.

I chose a songwriter who I felt would produce a strong song and gave the Rick, the composer direction to aim for a more powerful sound that embraced the key musical themes of the score. Similarly I am giving the performer full permission to do drop the usual clipped “perfect, warm” voices that come with voice work, strength and passion are more important than voice control.

The key element to the story Cathy stuggling to find her own identity (as all teenagers do) much more than a science fiction tale, this can be a very powerful and frightening emotional process, it certainly is for Cathy, the song reflects that.

The final full audio will be self-published through iTunes and Audible.

Audience

The novella is largely targeted at a YA audience though it has not been written specifically for a YA audience. The musical score contains a number of elements that are more reminiscent of science fiction from earlier era’s while also containing modern elements.

File Format

Uncompressed audio (wav or aac)

Audition

The audition is just to produce the chorus, that will pretty much show up what I need to hear. Be brave, do it how you would want to perform it. ☺

Artistic Direction

The demo track (provided) has been compiled by Rick Moyer. He has done to performance in a Rock/Rock Opera format. The original vision for the track was definitely to have a female voice (younger) as this is very much the journey of the lead character Cathy. As the musical track contains a lot of elements and themes used in the audio production we definitely want to keep the backing track but it can be tweaked if needed. I like the version done by Rick but I am also a great believer in trusting in the creative instincts of the performer, if there is another way to do it then I am very open to concepts where the performance is concerned.

The present performance has a main track and 4 backing tracks.

Additional Materials and Support

There is additionally the music only track, pacing track and song words for all versions (main track and backing vocals). Both myself and Rick are also available on skype as required to work through any performance questions or suggestions.
