Didn't think I'd do another tonight but can't seem to put this down. :wink:

sacredsounds, I understand your desire, but we've set the selections to be read and heard separately. Maybe I was being pigheaded in this, but I thought the poems deserved their own space. Not at all- your wish is my command! And now the one are two! https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/gemsofchine...

Re: [Group]Gems of Chinese Verse - tg

I just went ahead and recorded the next two together since they're so short, hope that's OK! Sections 49 and 50: https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/gemsofchineseverse_49_50_various_128kb.mp3 1:13 How does this sound for an intro/outro combining the two? I can split them up if desired as well. Woo!...

These two are quite short, may I record them back to back?

Cheerio! :)

Re: [Group]Gems of Chinese Verse - tg

178 is too low in volume, coming in at only 84.9 dB. Our target is 89 dB, with an acceptable range of 86-92 dB. As to the sound you hear in 178 -- I hear them too and I think they are what we call "mike bumps." Slightly bumping the microphone or something close to gives this kind of sound. I don't ...

Re: [Group]Gems of Chinese Verse - tg

What irony, here I am praising the translation but I neglected to give the translator their due in the beginning of the recording. :roll: I'll do my best to record that bit/edit and reupload. Cheers! Here is the edit with the translator included: https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/gemsofchineseve...

They are clearly very artfully and beautifully translated, it must be quite a challenge to translate poetry.

Re: [Group]Gems of Chinese Verse - tg

Yes, please. I love the project, too. It makes me feel young again as I found these poems at 17. But with a different translator. Yay! They are clearly very artfully and beautifully translated, it must be quite a challenge to translate poetry. That's so wonderful that this is a project dear to your...
