How it works

The Interview

01

A private and intimate 90-minute one-on-one recorded interview with one of our specialised hosts. The flow of the interview has been strategically and thoughtfully designed to make the subject feel comfortable and help evoke key chapters, scenes, and ideas from their life story.

The Crafting

02

From the many questions and conversations that form, our creative team will craft the heirloom audio portrait featuring a unique musical score.

**There will be an opportunity to review and remove any piece of audio you wish before finalising the portrait.

The Final Product

03

You will receive a password-protected website featuring the audio portrait for yourself or to share with others and a separate audio file to save in a safe place.

Testimonial
"I would like to share how impressed I was with the production of my audio portrait. The whole process and experience was so professional, thoughtful, kind and respectful. The quality of sound and music used on the audio track showcased what a tremendous team of talented people are behind the Quince project. The outcome far exceeded my expectations."

Some commonly asked questions

What can I do to prepare for my interview?

There is no preparation you are required to do before the interview however if you want to feel more prepared, we recommend you start by reflecting on the moments in your life that have had an impact on you. Maybe start jotting them down as they come to you.

Are there any interview questions I can know beforehand?

We do not share the interview questions beforehand. I know for some this may feel unsettling. But please know that we have designed the interview to make sure we capture many elements of you and have designed the flow of the interview to help you remember and reflect on your life thoughtfully.

Do you recommend an in-person interview over online interview?

We have had great success with both in-person and online interviews. We have more control over the quality of the audio in-person but online audio recording has improved so much in the last few years that we can create a high-quality product with an online recording tool. If you feel that you will be more comfortable speaking about yourself virtually, then go with the online options. If in-person interviewing feels more comfortable to you and we are in your vicinity, we recommend interviewing in person.
