This is quite ambiguous. I like it.

Huh. I just saw this task now and realized... I have to do it.

Properly capturing the timbre of a specific voice will be nearly impossible, but if I work hard enough I may be able to nail down the somewhat strange vowel sounds that make my voice particularly unique.

I give myself 5% odds of producing a total shplank, 15% odds of something that's merely pretty OK, and 80% odds of failing to produce anything at all due to going for the first option and having it not work.

Oh, hey, it got approved. Time to start studying that recording of me reading the grandfather passage.

I have an excellent idea for this one, but I need the help of someone. Specifically, someone female. (There's a good reason for this, don't worry).

Location is not a problem, as long as you have a computer (and possibly a microphone, but that's not necessary as much).

Also, this task title is missing an R.

Just sayin' is all.

EDIT: OK, it's not anymore...

Can I write a song about SOMEONE ELSE? (eg: you know... no one special)

Interesting idea
posted by Developer Pixie on July 20th, 2010 2:24 PM

Maybe but do it additionally with the task at hand.

Or take a chance and try it

adding on...

what about feelings towards said person?

I think doing the recording about somebody else has you walking on eggshells to begin with. Either it needs to be really awesome in order for me to find it acceptable or you could just Level Zerø this new task I created just so you can do this how you want.

So I had just been broken up with earlier in the week and my lovely friend Zach said "we should hang out!" He was like, "what do you want to do?" And I sent him to the SF0 page, and of course, he being an electronic music artist as soft pieces, we na...

I very nearly tried to make a sound collage of non-speech noises that sounded like the word "you" repeated over and over, but decided that would probably not end up as awesome as it sounded in my head. I still decided that I shouldn't use any word...

Some time ago I managed to learn how to transform into a cat. It's a trick I find particularly useful for performing tasks like these. Now I noticed that my cat voice is quite powerful. Much more powerful than the adorably squeaky voice of my pet ca...

For this task, I used a program called RGB MusicLab. I had heard of it awhile back but never messed with it, and it turns out that it is a pretty nifty application. You feed it a picture, which it pixelates and creates a mosaic out of. It then rea...

This has 2 parts and many tries. For starters, i don't always understand how people perceive me, so coming up with some thing that sounds like me was difucult (seeing as i don't know how that is.) I have a personal bias of liking some of my "bad" tr...

To my mind, there is no greater gift in life than a beautiful singing voice. Alas, I was given only a passable voice. Thus, in the pursuit of musical beauty, I have always relied on the use of musical instruments instead, as I will for this task. ...
