Why are music and voiceover such a compelling combination?

Music and Voiceover are a well established double act.

From commercials and corporate films to dramas and video games – it’s a rare voiceover project that doesn’t have music somewhere, even if it’s just a sting or mnemonic at the start and end. In this episode of Talking Creative, I talk to US Composer and Speakeasy Producer Garrett Neal all about music and voiceover. We look at questions like:
  • Why are music and voiceover such a compelling combination?
  • Does the voiceover affect your music choices – or vice versa?
  • Do all projects need music?
  • When you’re shaping a project – which comes first: the music or the voiceover?
  • Remote recording and working with voice actors
