greta and francis - two stage props
The recorded voice can sound thinner and higher pitched. There’s a second reason hearing a recording of your voice can be so disconcerting. It really is a new voice – one that exposes a difference between your self-perception and reality. Not so for Greta and Francis. They love the sound of their own voices, and together they have achieved nothing and made nothing.
Echo, by Alexandre Cabanel, 1874; Narcissus, by Caravaggio, 1599
