The Voice of Eastcliff Richard Revealed - Exclusive!

Is this the voice of Eastcliff Richard?

I was playing with some new software this morning and realised it could unscramble voices in the same way it can scramble them. So as an experiment, I ran the BBC 'Eastcliff Richard' weblog interview through it and this is what I got. A bigger mystery and not quite what I expected; ECR being rather younger than I thought.

Ed: The BBC tell me that the voice track is the one he sent them.

Or perhaps I am the BBC journalist?

A fraud is the more likely answer!

A Fraud? Sigmund or Clement?

DrMoores said...

That's what I mean.. i.e. "Clement" suggesting that the age of the voice is wrong. Interesting on a damp Saturday though and a great way of driving up the web traffic!

DrMoores said...

The plot thickens today with the BBC telling me that ECR sent in the disguised voice file.

S, either.. (A) It's Eastcliff Richard - He's rather younger and more "tech savvy" than one might have thought from his fantasy personality - and it's genuine, as he's unlikely to have considered that someone might have reversed the soundtrack disguise.

or (B) He had someone else do the voice for him, which rather defeats the concept of anonymity.

All one step closer perhaps to revealing who he is!

Why is it unlikely that I would have considered that someone might have reversed the soundtrack disguise, if I'm 'tech savvy'? Does you think I is stupid? Besides, Barrymore needed the work.

You said it, not me Mr 82.153.121.84 and your Apple Mac makes playing with the sound files easier doesn't it?
Rather more fun than the crossword puzzle anyway!

Eastcliff Richard said...

Wrong again Mr 84.12.50. But I agree, those clunky old PCs are yesterday's news in the media game. Rather like their owners, don't you think?

DrMoores said...

Each time you give something away!

Eastcliff Richard said...

Oh well, do it your way. Most people have discovered who I am by just being nice and inviting me out for a drink.

I love all of this! Isn't part of the fun of 'Blog-land', the anonymous character.
