As promised here are some materials for performers to use if they wish to sing the actual material as their audition piece. You don’t have to, but if you wish to, it’s here:
Send your auditions to firstname.lastname@example.org
There are two audio snippets of the section from the song i need sung, one with vcoals and one without. NoV means No Vocals. (Tunnel Girl is just the first verse. Raven is a bit more: 2nd verse, spoken middle and last verse). They are mp3s to make downloading easier. There is sheet music of these sections and lyric sheets.
I did transpose the key of the Tunnel Girl song up a half step from the track published two days ago so that the low note would be an F instead of an E. It is my experience that many, many more women have a low F as their lowest comfortable note rather than an E.
I will begin putting out ads and scouring online resources in a couple days, but if you know someone who is fantastic, throw them my way. In answer to when i need it by, i expect i will be doing this searching for a month. Which is long, but remember, if i find what i’m looking for next week, then that’s that. The smart play would be to send me whatever you want to send within a week’s time. And i am looking for excellence and the ability to utterly communicate a character (this goes for both Raven and Tunnel Girl.)
Thank you to all who have sent in. I will get back to all of you one by one over the next few weeks.
