LITTLETON, CO— ALLINMYMIND™ Personal Interviews and Recordings marks decades of recording individual voices in master quality audio and its fifth year under the name ALLINMYMIND™ (www.allinmymind.tv).
“Let’s face the simple family facts”, says ALLINMYMIND™ founder William David Kuenning, “in these days of high tech imagery, text and video, the voice is still, and always will be, the primary gateway to everything we think, do and remember –every day, personally, in history and in tradition. More than all the other senses combined. The sounds of our Loved Ones’ voices have guided and shaped our lives and what we know and will recall about this journey with them or even the heritage we share.”
“It is an amazing fact of every-day living that our Loved Ones’ voices are so fundamentally important, and still, we, in our every day lives, do not give what the loss of those important voices means even a moment’s thought, much less think about preserving them forever”, Kuenning continues.
“I began decades ago recording, video archiving, war stories and personal accounts of historical events, family histories and life milestones. After years of that, I realized that personal accounts and stories were important; however, it was really the voice alone, in all its familiar complexity, that triggers in our Loved Ones far more memories than any image or story, written or videoed, can stimulate”, Kuenning adds. “Archiving the voices of those who mean so much to us insures that our minds have every chance of recalling those incredible details into the future. Preserving what we take for granted, their intricate voices, better widens and vastly extends the range of what our minds can retain and revisit in the future. If we lose their voices, we cannot retrieve them or the memory details they could inspire. When they grow, they have changed. When they pass, they are gone. When we, ourselves, become less mentally agile, our minds need all the clues we can get”, he explains.
“We offer this service, voice audio recording, because every day those around us, who influence our lives and for whom we care very deeply, grow up or pass away. When that happens, those people or moments are lost to us forever,” says Mr. Kuenning. “Some of that loss is very easy to stop. We mitigate that personal loss by recording.”
“Our primary focus is on the nuances and subtleties of the human voice,” Kuenning adds. “By capturing the way someone says something, we preserve the details of the sounds, inflections and slight mannerisms that in themselves trigger so many precious memories. Through vivid details of the voice, we capture and awaken life-affirming feelings in ourselves, the listeners. It is a great deal of fun to do for all, and it is a priceless treasure for the families.”
“I am passionate about these recordings for families because I see what they do in securing better chances to remember their loved ones in the future”, Kuenning reflects. “When a loved one has passed or a child has grown, there is nothing that has such a profound impact on their family as listening to their clear voice. These recordings are not just life-affirming, they do no less than alter the way we remember those we love. Actually, we use this ability to use voice to trigger remembrance all the time. The problem is that we lose it when we lose their voice. It is a great loss, and unfortunately, one most mistakenly take for granted. In reality today, all we have to do is record to insure that we can always remember in this way.”
“It’s really quite astounding what a high quality audio recording can trigger for memories”, he continues. “With the technology today, all this is possible, right in their own homes, or wherever they feel comfortable. One of the fascinating things is that young and old, alike, folks who might be intimidated by photos or video immediately fall into this audio recording. In all these years, I have never found an exception to this. That is why I have evolved the ability to record anyone, anywhere, any time”, he points out. “Among others, I record children, families, grandparents, reunions, veterans, life-partners, and even expecting mothers reading to their babies, where I mic their stomachs for the baby’s point-of-view. These recordings are virtually in any location, locally and in the world -from home, to hospice and assisted living situations.”
ALLINMYMIND™ Personal Interviews and Recordings is singular in its ability to move people toward a totally new way of thinking about preserving and stimulating their families’ memories and connecting to loved ones. The recordings are done in whatever circumstances/environments the subjects find most comfortable or appropriate, such as in the comfort of their own home, as they work to capture the natural voice character.
“We all take the complexities of voice character for granted; however, they are a life-time key to building and recalling memories”, Kuenning points out. “We are driven to jog the memory through clear, honest fidelity,” Kuenning says. “When and How a loved one talks becomes far more important than What they say”, he notes. “For instance, a mother who says she wishes she could hear her mother’s voice simply wants to bring back rushes of memories,” he emphasizes. “It really would not matter what her mother said, as long as the voice is heard again in clear, vivid familiarity to unlock, trigger, those memories. It is a wonderful thing when it happens, and the recordings make it possible. It is an extraordinary gift.”
ALLINMYMIND™ records people, young and old, in their own, familiar, comfortable environments, and seeks to archive natural feelings and emotions in such a way that, for instance, a grandchild listening gets more than just an account of an incident from their grandparents. Therefore, for that example, by hearing the emotional and personal delivery of the details, they are able to connect with those grandparents, even years after the recordings. Alternatively, if they are listening to their parents reminisce about their own parents or grandparents; the child hears details in their voices giving them clues of meaning and emotion. Every human does this, they just need the voice to better stimulate the memories and personal connections. In this way, passing on personal histories or family connections has a deeper, more robust range of meaning than simply the printed word alone, and that is the goal of ALLINMYMIND™.
“When you think about it”, Kuenning says, “the great equalizer in this world, that makes us all the same, rich or poor, educated or not, is our individual ability to recognize very minute and complex speech in everyone we hear, especially in the voices of those we hold dear. We all do it at the same complex level, without real conscious thought. Listening and reacting to those minute details of sound and mannerisms brings out rushes of hidden memories that otherwise stay dormant and are usually ultimately lost. That very specific recording-focus and our singular insightful and compassionate caretakership of the process are what make us so unique.”
“When people listen to their recordings”, Kuenning explains, “they are stunned and surprised at the effect they feel. It’s a wonderful thing to see happen. We even believe that these recordings may also assist families in dealing with memory loss in loved ones and in assisted living situations and hospice where so much of their interactive life is stripped away.” “So, we simply record your Loved Ones’ voices in extraordinary detail,” he adds. “We do this in the comfort of their familiar settings. Then, when you wish to revisit the wonder of that person or age, you need only listen and let your mind do the rest. We say that we are helping you to Expand the Range of Memory, and over all these years, it has become increasingly important and without question possible. This is an exciting age for memory.”
ALLINMYMIND™ Personal Interviews and Recordings goes wherever you or your Loved Ones are and records in studio quality audio. The activity is interesting and an outstanding experience for all involved. They charge only for the actual recording time. There is no cost for the extensive consultation, planning and set-up that precedes the actual recordings. “We believe that, whether we are planning multiple sessions -such as capturing the voices of children as they grow up, or gathering a family of thirty, or setting to record hospital or hospice situations, war stories or private thoughts, the preparation work with the families and individuals should be done appropriately, without an eye on the clock,” Kuenning says. “After all, when all is said and done, these voices are the most important part of their lives, their heritage, and their families -literally what has and will shape them. We care about the people, and we care to do it right.”
