It's mysterious. It's intriguing. It' s sometimes too good to be true. It's the mystical voice! It slowly draws you into its firm grip, and just when you're certain you've had enough, you somehow can't wait to hear more. You're in too deep, and you're no longer just listening to the story; you are part of it.
The ability to capture an audience’s attention, either live or in film, is nothing short of talent. The mystical voice combines tones, sounds, and emphasis on certain words and phrases to evoke curiosity and mystery in an audience. Mastering this voice is usually the difference between a great storyteller and a mediocre one.
A mystical Voice evokes wonder and curiosity about things unknown to the audience. It’s magical and brings otherwise unbelievable phenomena to life. It is a storyteller’s greatest asset and beautifully works to build suspense, making the audience crave more.
The mystical voice is often used in the build-up part of a story. Start the story off in a slow, calculated tempo, building up the tension as the mystery in the story unfolds. Reel your audience in, and when they least expect them, hit them with a plot twist. This voice is used to portray witches, gypsies, fortune-tellers, and sometimes religious deity.
Storytelling is an art, and great storytellers will always use their voices to effectively manipulate their audience, building mystery and arousing curiosity as they go.
No matter how good a story is, if you don’t tell it right, you will lose your audience halfway through.
