FAQ

 

What can I expect at the recording session, how does it work ?

Allow three  hours to make record your Voiceportrait. On arrival, after introductions to the team, over tea or coffee, we discuss the recording process. It's a very friendly and comfortable environment. We do a sound check for levels, and then Christine interviews you, and we record your life and times. We can stop at any time, and we have a comfort break halfway through recording.


Where are your studios?

We have access to a variety of studios, but TheSoundhouse is our associate  studio based in west London, with ample parking and the best in the business sound engineers, facilities, and staff. thesoundhousestudios.co.uk


What if i can't get to London?

Each Voiceportrait is unique and should you require location recording we can set that up, hence each price point being on application subject to requirements. Call or email to discuss we are happy to travel. Location recording can incur an extra cost for travel dependng on recording - price on application.


Do I need to prepare?

That is up to you, most clients look forward to their day and anticipate their recording by making notes or reflecting on their life prior to recording. Some people like to extemporise, and simply answer questions on the day, however it's advisable to give Christine as much background as you can. To facilitate this we have a template of questions we can send you to help you reflect, and prompt memories.


Can I bring a friend or partner?

Of course, we do ask for only one other person, and they can sit in on the  recording with our engineers. They often find it as enjoyable and moving as the client whose Voiceportrait is being recorded.
