VO4TA: Throwing It Away

 

The direction ‘throwing it away’ makes the read casual and relatable by:

1. Making the rhythm of the sound more loose and hence more conversational

2. Making the read faster without trying too hard or feeling rushed

3. Making the inflections in the read more interesting - again without feeling forced or affected.

This is what direction accomplishes.  One specific phrase (“throw it away”) has multiple impacts upon the sound - all expressed in a single, relatable and playable idea.  

 

Now I have a question:  What if the direction given was merely “slower”?

He’s away to see The Great American Eclipse.  Careful with the glasses you buy.
