Abaisse Voice Meme

Postby deHavilland » Sun Feb 17, 2013 9:43 pm

Heya, folks! Here be the place to share your dulcet (or not) vocal tones with the world! And by world, I mean the Abaisse Gen board because let's not get cocky here.

Record the Following In Your Natural Voice:
- A quick introduction with your username. "Hi guys, this is.."
- Where you're from. (You don't have to be honest, but if you have a regional dialect, that'd be nifty.)
- Your favorite Les Mis character or characters.
- The following words/phrases: "Les Misérables," "Cafe Musain," "Enjolras," "Courfeyrac," "Feuilly," "Euphrasie," and "A platoon of sappers! Advancing towards the barricade!"
- A quote of your choosing from the Brick!
- And anything you might like to share with the board in your own voice!

Alternatively, feel free to just link to something of you speaking if you don't feel like adhering to the meme!

Giving us so many French words is mean :D Also, I cannot do the "platoon of sappers" line without copying the American accent on the CSR

Also, suggestions on uploading? Can we attach sound files to posts here?

http://soundcloud.com/ is a great place to upload your noises to! (Haha, I fully intend to copy the CSR version of that line when I say it! BAM.)

I'm happy to take requests for what quotes or whatever people want to hear in my (not that strong) Scottish accent. Also happy to take requests for things to say in an exaggerated Scottish accent.

I need you to use the word "boke" in a sentence.

We need to put that into a suitably Les Mis sentence. Something like "Alfie Boe? More like Alfie Boke!" (though that would probably sound rubbish in my accent! Names are hard to do in accents actually...)

Thank you :D (my singing voice sounds better in real life :P "DYHTPS" was a tad too cheerful... somebody was walking down the hall and I was like "uhh ohhh..." during that moment)

Haha, you can tell the exact moment you heard footsteps! Oh bless :lol:

Right, as soon as I can figure out what brick quote to do, I'll record something. Suggestions very welcome! And I'll do a couple of extra Scottish things for Geronimo and Mac.

I just recorded three and a half minutes of me, and it's all too quiet to hear! Curses! Need to sit closer to my laptop!

Ok. You have no idea of the quest I had to undertake in order to do this. So many different versions. So many different file formats. Downloading sound editing programmes and signing my soul away to various websites.

And now I'm worried that I pronounce Jehan wrong... :oops:

Anyway, enjoy: http://soundcloud.com/acaila/abaisse-take-3-flac
