False Memory 2: The Actor

False Memories are a series of poems written by J.M.Fox. 

Each poem takes the inner monologue of the protagonist and develops the thought process that goes through his or her mind.

'The Actor' the second of these poems takes the internal, intimate thoughts of a professional actor, as he returns to his small hometown.   

Paul Dibley has used 'The Actor' as a basis for a piece of radio art.  It has become an exploration of human utterance and computer generated voices.  The text is all spoken by computer - including the accents.  

This piece develops the colliding of artificial utterances (sounding 'real') and the surrounding recordings of processed human voice (sounding 'unreal').

The text is by J M Fox
