Angry Voices Get a Reaction

Nothing makes a listener more attentive than listening to an intimidating character's angry voice. Evidenced by a study showing a greater activation to angry speech than neutral speech

Professional voices need to get mad sometimes – or at least sound like they genuinely are from time to time! Anger is not inherently wrong; sometimes, an angry voice can be a great form of passionate expression. A listener is guaranteed to focus on a plotline when the voice is delivered with an explosive delivery.

The more feeling the listener gets from the person voicing the lines, the easier it will be to engage them emotionally.

More about Angry Voices

There are countless distractions in the modern age. It can be impossible for audiences to give to restrict their attention to a single medium for too long. A mundane, dispassionate voice will not keep listeners engaged for long. Sometimes what is needed is an explosive, angry voice to make your content impossible to ignore.

The angry voice is about engagement, blowing away passive listening, transforming it into active listening. Angry voices can be a form of character expression or a video game voice-over exciting and stimulating players to progress on their mission.

Whatever the application, understanding and using this vocal tone appropriately is important. Amateur talent or misused instances of an angry expression can frighten and discourage your audience. So it's important to understand what this voice is, when to use it, and how a professional voice artist can enhance its use.

What is an angry tone?

Be careful about who is handling the casting of roles with angry voices. It would be best if you were confident that they have control over all the associated tones. Anger is not typically a sustained behaviour. It is a fleeting emotion, so your chosen performer must be adept at changing between tones.

For example, an angry person might also need to sound sarcastic, antagonistic – or like that grumpy old bat mad over the fact that you trespassed on their property. It is rare that anger is purely expressed solely in the form of shouting.

The angry tone covers a multitude of vocal traits, from abrupt to downright dangerous. Finding the perfect voice to elicit the desired angry characteristic and keep the listeners' attention is easy with Voquent's voices search.

Angry performances keep your audience on their toes, no matter what they are doing.
