In case someone isn't aware, an audio book is a book read by an actor, or maybe many actors, for you, recorded and shipped in a CD or an mp3. I must admit, out of curiocity I downloaded an audio book at first, as much as I enjoyed it at first I ended up buying the books. But here I am again, looking at audiobooks. You see, I stumbled upon a company named GraphicAudio, http://www.graphicaudio.net/ .

The way they put it, "GraphicAudio®…A Movie in Your Mind™". And indeed it is. This is the first high qulity audiobook production I've listened to, I'm through the first 20 minutes of the Demon wars saga, and it has left me stunned. It is the paradise of a film composed I think, it's packed full of background music, it even had a song, where I suspect Salvatore had written a poem, or lyrics in the book. 

 

I'm sharing it for the fellows who write atmospheric and "filmish" music, it seems it's a field worth checking out. I don't know about any other companies doing this kind of audiobook recordings, although I'm sure at least one or 2 more must exist.

in the graphicaudio website you can listen to demos in most books, see what I'm talking about.

  • Could be interesting indeed :) Thanks for sharing
  • This sounds like a great idea.  It sounds like a dramatized version.  Some narrations are plain. I heard one dramatization I like Dr.Who.  

     

    One question do they post guides lines or format like the bitrate number?

  • I do not know Ann, actually I don't know if they even need composers. But the field looked like a good idea, so I though it good to share for those willing to look into it more.

    High quality audio book productions-a chance for composers?
