LibriVox Multilingual Short Works Collection 006 - Poetry & Prose

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/librivox-multilingual-short-works-collection-006/

This collection is for short works, in any language except (modern) English. This can include poetry but also prose, fiction as well as non-fiction.
Feel free to choose any work which is in the public domain. If you're unsure what we mean by 'public domain', please read this explanation. Try to stick to works that run less than 60 minutes.
Please follow the instructions in this post carefully. :) There is no need to "sign-up" before recording; please remember that, to be on the safe side, you should choose a work that is Public Domain in your country AND that was published before 1923; if you are unsure about anything, please post here and ask before recording!


Everyone can contribute as many recordings as he/she wants.
It's OK to submit readings in English (English being a language, I figure), but as there are plenty of other places to put those, let's limit them to special cases such as interesting regional dialects or accents.

If you are interested to see what has been done previously, check the previous Multilingual Collections in our catalog (but we welcome multiple versions of the same work).

Magic Window:



BC Admin BEFORE recording
If you are new, please check the Recording Guide before recording:
http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Newbie_Guide_to_Recording
Please be sure that your recording software is set to the following technical specifications:
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44100 kHz
Channels: 1 (Mono recording).

DURING recording
NB - The intro and outro can be in English, or in the language of the poem.
At the beginning, read the abbreviated "librivox disclaimer":
"[Work title], by [author], read in [language] for LibriVox.org by [your name]".

At the End say: "End of section. This recording is in the public domain"; then leave 5 seconds of silence (or 10 seconds if the file is longer than 30 minutes).

AFTER recording
Add ID3 V2 tags
(To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)

Title: Language -Work Title (e.g. Chinese - Chun Si)
Artist: Author Name (e.g. Peter Wang)
Album: LibriVox Multilingual Short Works Collection 006

(You may put "Recorded by [your name]" in the comments section if you wish)
Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

Save as mp3 file
File name all in lowercase: msw006_[work's title]_[author's last name]_[your initials].mp3
(e.g. msw006_chunsi_wang_drb.mp3)
Put file name all in lowercase, and the title all in one word (without the square brackets, please, and NO SPACES)

Just passing through and noticed that you didn't have a MW and you have been waiting for a while. It must have slipped past Anna!

So I set it up for you! Thank you for your patience. I'll move you on over to Short Works as well.

My apologies to everyone - and thank you so much m8b1 - have been very much remiss. Thank you for your patience. My life in real life is getting too busy for such an active online volunteer position - so I will gradually tone down my activities here. I will keep an eye on these collections for now, and see how it goes - and will work on the cataloguing of nr 4 in the next week!

Hello Anna san,

Thank you for your message.
Everybody has a real life. We need to balance between LibriVox activity & own's real life.

I have jus one request for the moment.
Can you move 005 to 'Readers Found'?

Cheers,
Masa
