Each recording on MEDEA is an authentic voice. The legend of MEDEA is told in a series of test sentences that demonstrate a sequence of repeated vowels, consonants and key sound shifts. These simple sentences should help you identify what sounds need shifting, adapting or replacing. Each speaker then performs a short monologue from Liz Lochhead’s adaptation of the play by Euripides, so you can hear pitch, energy and rhythm. At the end of each recording there are a few minutes of free flow speech where the performers describe their dialect, note specific details and offer suggestions as to how you can embody the accent for yourself.
