Giving voice to my calligraphy

Professor Pedro gave us a homework that consists of recording your own voice saying « If my calligraphy was my voice, I would sound like this ». We have to look at our notebooks and all and think of the characteristics our letters and give a voice to it.

First I tried to list my letter characteristics:

  • round
  • Regular
  • Readable
  • Precise
  • slightly fat
  • Monotonous
  • slightly slow
  • Big
  • Feminine
  • Organized
  • Letters are really close from one another

After that, I actually imagined my calligraphy like a person…

That person would sound slow, and a bit annoying, smart and like it has always something in her mouth – because she’s fat.

I then went to record the voice…

I had several takes. On the first one, I talked at a normal speed with a « fat lady voice », which I think it’s appropriate for my calligraphy. After that, I talked slower, which makes sense but then I was sounding like a guy so I slightly changed the pitch. The final record was actually funny and totally according to my letters.

Unfortunately, I can’t upload the audio on this post.

I really had fun with this homework and I can’t wait for next class. Hopefully, the teacher will explain that there’s actually a technical reason why some voices sound aggressive or sweet or irregular.
