Speak with your voice
Language is music. Find the right tone, feel the melodies of speech, timing, rhythm! As a speaker and musician, I love these parallels and relationships between making music and speaking. Stories are told in musical compositions and improvisations. And a novel can become a symphony of words. I really enjoy recording audio books, but also voice overs for documentaries, explanatory videos, image films, advertising and much more!
»Drawing is language for the eyes.
Language is painting for the ear.«
Joseph Joubert (1754-1824)
»Language is the clothing of thoughts.«
Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)
»A word is dead once it has been said, some say.
I say it is just beginning to live on this day.«
Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
si tacuisses, philosophus mansisses
Hättest Du geschwiegen, wärest Du ein Philosoph geblieben
wenn de dei Gosch g’halde heddsch,
no hedd koi Sau gmergt, daß’d bled bisch«
Willy Meurer (1934-2018)
»People use their reason only to justify their injustices, and language only serves to hide their thoughts.«
»People, it seems, did not receive language to hide their thoughts, but to hide the fact that they have no thoughts.«
Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855)
