Klink and Klank speak!

A few weeks ago I was in New York for a few days doing Frank Einstein business. Two days were spent signing 12,000 copies of the Frank Einstein book. One day was spent reading the voices of Klink and Klank, the robot characters in Frank Einstein and the Antimatter Motor. Jon Scieszka, the book’s author, read the rest of the narration and dialog. After I read the voices at a recording studio in my regular old voice, I was given the resulting audio files and went to work with some of my audio gear to roboticize the lines. This was quite a process, and I’ve been anxious and excited to hear the actual results ever since.
This morning I noticed that the audio book was up for sale on Amazon, so I checked the Listening Library’s website to see if it was up there and voila there it was. Here’s the link to the Listening Library page, and below is the audio file.

Before going into the recording studio, I did some test-runs to give the various producers and author a sense of what I was thinking about for the voices. I ended up doing something completely different, as none of these were quite a legible as they needed to be.
