56 | Does Your Voice Sound Like You?

In this episode of The Gentle Rebel Podcast, we delve into the intriguing concept of voice, the third element of our creative spirit that we’ve been looking at recently. Check out the episodes on Sound and Noise if you haven’t already done so.

What do we mean when we talk about creative voice? Is it something we are born with or something we develop?

Character is inadvertently forged in our workshops of adversity.
Performance is intentionally forged in our workshops of necessity.
Voice is the taste we leave for others.
Character can be flexible or brittle.
Performance is a wall or a window.
Voice is sweet or bitter.

I intuitively wrote down those words when preparing and attempted to untangle their meaning during the episode.

Other Things I Explore In The Episode:

  • How art transcends anyone else’s desire for it
  • Ways we lose our voice in the pressure to fulfil, please, and satisfy an external demand
  • Voice isn’t easy to describe, and it can’t be contrived
  • Performance as shaping, forging, fabricating, embodying (and how performance can be a window or a wall – deepening or alienating our relationship with our voice)
  • Mr Rogers described Voice as “something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.”
  • Ways to find your voice after losing it
  • What other people can tell us about the sound of our voice

So, what does voice mean to you? I’d love to read your reflections. Share them in the comments or drop me a message.
