Unique Voice

"Voice" has many conceptual applications. In writing, as in singing or playing a musical instrument, a general definition is the unique way that each individual expresses herself. The "voice" a reader experiences in writing is not necessarily the opinions or personality of the author; it is how the writer conveys her main character or the narrator, how the visual and emotional landscape are expressed, and so on.

This video is a wonderful example of one musician, Lucia Micarelli, who has found her creative voice through her instrument. Her passion and alive-ness come through her music and her presentation. And Ian Anderson doesn't fare too badly in the creative voice realm, either!
