Recording Notes: Please record your dialog with a 1-2 second pause in between your lines, so that the waveforms don't touch each other. Please do not attempt any type of filtering or modification of the "raw" sound.

Please insert this Tone in between scene breaks. It'll make it much easier to visually spot the scene divisions when editing. Thanks!

Tone

BTW - this tone can be generated inside Audacity by selecting Generate>Tone. It'll default to a 30-second length, but can be trimmed down like any other sound.

Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.

My 10-year-old might be interested!

Could I be the first carrier?

Also, if the text just says 'carrier' which of the carriers would read that part?

Read both parts and I'll divvy up the lines equally among the parts.

John,

I'll be your MC for this wonderful project. I've added my initials to the thread title, and added it to the 'To Come - Collaborative Works' page of the catalogue.

Will think about reading, too (and see I'll have to be quick!), but will need to look at parts.

Hi, John--

I'm glad to see this is getting underway, the timing is good for me. I have a couple of weeks off this month, so I'll see what I can do about getting the lines for Hotspur knocked out then.

Okay...

I decided to separate it into two files. One is miniscule because it only has one line ("Fat as butter"... hehe).

That would be "Carrier's" lines.

And the other one... is "First Carrier."

I've created a "Readers Wanted: Dramatic Works" sub-forum, and have moved this thread there :)

My husband and I can attempt Owen Glendower and Lady Mortimer in Welsh. Is there a deadline?

Well, the project deadline is 8/1 - but with this rate it'll have to be changed to Sept 1 most likely - ppl just aren't signing up :(

Welcome aboard tho - how should I list your names for the roles?

I'm in the LibriVox catalogue as "Sandra in Wales, United Kingdom" (I think; I'd better check!).

Steven can be listed as "Steven in Wales, United Kingdom". That ought to work out okay.

As for the Welsh lines, we thought perhaps a few lines from an old Welsh poem of suitable subject matter? Something like the 7th century "Lament for Cynddylan" (cun-THYL-an), which is no doubt in the public domain by this time. It says things such as, translated:

I shall mourn till I enter my oaken grave/
Cynddylan slain at his power's height.

It could sound really cool and ancient! A Welsh speaker listening would recognise it. There are about 600,000 of those on the entire planet and I doubt any would object. Or we could just make something up; whichever you think best. Let us know and we'll follow Director's direction.
