The Railway Station by Archibald Lampman (1861 - 1899).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-railway-station-by-archibald-lampman/
This Weekly poem highlights Lampman's description a train station at night, "The darkness brings no quiet here," ( David Lawrence)
Each week a poem is chosen to be recorded by as many LibriVox volunteers as possible!
This week's poem can be found here.

Set your recording software to:
Channels: 1 (Mono)
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44100 kHz

Have questions on "how"?
Check LV's Recording Notes thread before recording. If this is your first recording, you'll also find this Newbie Guide to Recording useful.
Begin your reading with the abbreviated LibriVox disclaimer:
No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
The Railway Station by Archibald Lampman, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].
[Add, if you wish, date, your location, and/or your personal URL.]
Then read the poem:
The darkness brings no quiet here, the light
No waking: ever on my blinded brain
The flare of lights, the rush, and cry, and strain,
The engines' scream, the hiss and thunder smite:
I see the hurrying crowds, the clasp, the flight,
Faces that touch, eyes that are dim with pain:
I see the hoarse wheels turn, and the great train
Move labouring out into the bourneless night.

So many souls within its dim recesses,
So many bright, so many mournful eyes:
Mine eyes that watch grow fixed with dreams and guesses;
What threads of life, what hidden histories,
What sweet or passionate dreams and dark distresses,
What unknown thoughts, what various agonies!


At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:
End of poem. This recording is in the public domain.

Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording.
Save your recording as an mp3 file using the following filename and ID3 tag format:

Do you hear the hint of a stumble? I wonder if I should try again.

Welcome to LibriVox Chandra :D Good first reading, however the volume is low at 81.9 dB, you should aim for your waveforms to peak near the 0.5 mark, like this:

Image

You can check your volume using our Checker program - see info at http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker You will find the volume in decibels on the Information tab. For your information, we look for around 89 dB (87-91 is OK)
- your file has a double .mp3, the .mp3 is added to the file when you save/export as an mp3, no need to add one to the file name. :wink:
- when you upload a replacement file, please use the same filename, our uploader changes the name of the previous file so it can be recovered if necessary.
- You can view your brand new LV Catalog page by clicking your forum name in the Magic Window. :)
