ah a new chapter. Now this one was different than the others, it sounds to me more like they are short prose poems with all the repetitions in each section. A nice concept, quite entertaining. I do think that I prefer the longer chapters though. These may be snippets which have not been made into full stories yet.

The bells were not intentional (my cat likes to help me record sometimes). If it's bothersome I can record that bit again.
it's as you wish. I can understand the reading so it's not absolutely necessary, but if you like to have a clearer sound and if it was not intentional, then yes, I think I would re-record it if it was my solo. But it's up to you
The Easter egg is that the main character makes a reference to Castaigne, from one of the earlier short stories (I'm getting really entertained that these stories keep referencing other ones).
ah ok, yes I noticed that one too but didn't recognize it as easter egg. I somehow was expecting that there would be references, the whole concept of the book seems to me that it would have an underlying red thread working throughout. Yes, I also like such books.
I have a couple of the other stories pretty close to being uploaded, but they both have a chunk of french that I am less than confident on and was hoping I could get you to do sound bites of them. There's two in The Demoiselle D'Ys and one in the beginning of the street of the four winds. I'm gonna keep working around them so its at your leisure (thanks on all the help with that btw
I really appreciate it.
ah yes, I see the poems. No problem, I can do you a sound file for them all. Might be for the weekend, but I will make myself a note so I won't forget.
textually all is well but I think it would benefit from a bit of cropping on lengthy breaks. I would keep them under 2 seconds. 1.5 seconds is fully enough between paragraphs, anything over 2 seconds risks throwing the listener out of the story

: between "and a song" and "for whom then" – the pause feels too long
> at 5:36-5:39
: between "yearning for her" and "stabbed": also here, nearly 3 seconds of silence could be trimmed
quite a bit
> at 6:25-6:29
: between "jingling in his cap" and "the green room": also here, less silence
would be better, even if it is between two chapters
> at 7:12-7:14
: between "that you love" and "said Love": I would cut a bit of silence
here too because it's the same sentence and there is no need to make such a long break
> at 7:26-7:31
: between "said Love" and "end of section 8": again the pause
is way too long
> at 7:32
: finally at the very end you only have 2 seconds of silence instead of the standard 5
there you could add 3 more for once
> I think you forgot noise-cleaning
for this section, there is quite a disturbing underlying buzzing underneath. I would run one round of noise-cleaning
to make the sound a bit clearer
