Peo Drangert, Voicemachine:
Benjamin does not just sound nice! He also reads excellently and is easy to work with!

The voice is very important for when you want to reach out with your message. As a reader, I work to convey and shape that message.

Who am I? A reliable reader with more than a decade of professional experience of reading jobs for commercials, corporate films, e-learning, audio books, speech synthesis, IVR and dubbing. There have been around a thousand jobs so far and I work regularly with voice jobs from my home studio. I work with many different voice companies, both in Sweden and abroad and have good credentials and references from many in the industry.

I am a trained actor basically on Kulturama’s vocational preparatory theater line, classical specialization, between 2006-2008. Since then, I have studied rhetoric, voice, communication, drama and pedagogy at Stockholm University and Södertörn University. Between 2009-2011 I took many different courses in those subjects at Stockholm University and between 2012-2014 I attended the rhetoric consulting program at Södertörn University.

My voice qualities? Warm and nice with very good diction and a certain authority. Also easy to have a lot of energy in the voice and to be able to have both a lower authoritarian tone and a more youthful lighter tone. Over the years, I have many times been hired for assignments where pronunciation and diction have been of the utmost importance, in the form of training modules in the Swedish language for people with reading and writing difficulties as well as training in Swedish at SFI.

I am used to directing and appreciate sorted feedback from customers and producers. Satisfied customers who return is my aim and I always read until customers are satisfied and deliver what they want, both in design and feeling as well as in tone and credibility.

Since 2014, I run my own company and invoice for jobs. See my price list here. If you want a taste of a potential reading job that you think could suit me, I’ll be happy to record a free demo.

Delivery: Usually 24-48 hours. I can deliver quickly, often the same day if it is a shorter script and I am flexible when it comes to retakes and additions. For longer readings, such as long e-learning modules, I usually agree with the customer or producer on the delivery date for the reading.

Script changes that are 1-2 sentences of original script I deliver at no extra cost. In addition, there is an extra cost of SEK 400 per round of changes.

I have Swedish as my mother tongue, but also do readings in English with a Swedish accent. Check out my English voice jobs among my work samples .

Background / History

My post-secondary studies have included theater, rhetoric, drama, voice and song / performance at Kulturama, Stockholm University and Växjö University. I have taken private lessons with private voice and speech educators, including for Lisbeth Gemzell at Voice and Rhythm, and with singing and speech educators at SMI (Stockholm Music Institute). I graduated from Kulturama in 2008 and worked a lot with theater and film. In 2012, I got my first voice job and eventually started working with it part time. In 2012, I entered the rhetoric consulting program at Södertörn, a three-year education that trains you in rhetoric and communication and where in the future you can, for example, work with counseling in communication and language issues, as an educator in written and oral presentation or as a speechwriter, editor, investigator or informant. Since 2014 I run my own business as a reader and since 2018 it is my full-time job.
