Working only with sound brings a freedom unlike any visual medium. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but it takes far less than that to create a vivid picture in the listener’s mind. Sometimes, words aren’t necessary at all, only sounds.
Not having to present a visual image to the audience leaves the artist free to create virtually any type of character his voice will allow. Inflection, accent, pace and pitch combine to create a vision within the mind of each individual listener that is unique to their senses. Further enhanced by music and audio effects, no two listeners envision what they’re hearing in quite the same way.
