lunaunit asked: Hey dear, hope all is well with you. I just wanted to thank you for posting my second voicemail, the score is beautiful. It's so surreal to know that my literal voice has reached so many people. Within only 12 hours, it has almost 1,000 plays, and that's so powerful. It's such an honor to part of your project. Thank you.
Anonymous asked: So... I called a couple times yesterday... I was cut off... Yeah, I felt really bad.... Yeah....
I’m sorry! My voicemail inbox doesn’t let callers go over three minutes per message. Feel free to call in as much as you need.
the-last-frontier asked: Do you listen to the voicemails as the person is saying it?
Not as the person is saying it, no.
Doing my best, despite my modest audio engineering skills.
