Spoken Word

For a writer, editing sound is very much like editing printed words. You can add, subtract, rearrange the sounds in very much the same way that you can on the page. With sound there are other ways to edit, though. You can revise the speed, pitch, volume, echo and decay of the words. It was this aspect that prompted the title "Strange Punctuation”.
