Identifying Different Roles Of A Voice Artist

By Jerry Wood

When working with film, television, stage or audio sound, there are several different aspects in which an individual can perform. One of which is that of a voice artist. These individuals can range from being someone involved in a poetry and spoken word community, a radio talk show host or Disc Jockey(DJ) to someone who narrates film and television. While this is the case, there are often many other areas in which individuals working in the vocal arts can be found contributing talent.

In most cases, those working in radio are often referred to as voice actors. However, some MCs working in television now also refer to oneself in this way. For example, some might consider show hosts such as Julie Chin, Jeff Probst and Ryan Seacrest to be actors in this realm.

As DJs most often perform for a live radio audience, any material read on-air during a shift is often considered to be considered part of the vocal arts. Whereas, any pre-programmed commercials, public service announcements or other material played versus read is simply part of the show. In either case, the content itself is related in one way or another to those working in this field.

The term DJ has taken on new meaning in the 20th and 21st centuries. For, up until recently, it only referred to individuals who worked at radio stations that played recorded music over the airwaves. Now, it can refer to these traditional disc jockeys, or to those whom entertain by spinning and scratching music at clubs, private parties, festivals and other events.

The field is quite competitive though individuals interested in this work can often find an outlet. For example, another aspect of this work is that of a MC. A MC is someone who makes announcements and introduces artists at music festivals and other events. In fact, many individuals develop a career in this area. For, MCs are often needed at parties, wedding receptions and other events.

There are a number of specialized companies which post listings on a daily basis related to this type work. To discover one of these websites and current offerings, type vocal acting into a search engine, then click on any results of interest. After which, an individual can often sign up to receive e-mails related to future opportunities in this regard.

Individuals hosting poetry slams are also considered to be working in this field. For, not only do these individuals announce contestants, most also announce featured poets who generally perform during breaks. In addition, it is these individuals whom at the end of an event often announce winners based on the judges final count.

When looking for work, individuals can either look to work remotely or at a local studio. Studio work can often be much harder to find than that of online work. For, a number of talent scouts now use mp3 audio files to rehearse and select individuals for these type positions. As such, it is often best that those wishing to work in this area work to develop a clear voice and speak in sentences which are grammatically correct.
