LibriVox 9th Anniversary Collection

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/librivox-9th-anniversary-collection/
It's the time of year again when I start to think about the anniversary of LibriVox on August 10th. This year is the 9th anniversary of our illustrious community, and in keeping with the last few years, I invite readers to submit items with the number nine in the title ... neuf... neun... nueve...nove... девять...εννέα... you get my drift? Non-fiction, fiction, poetry, songs: all are welcome, in any language and lasting less than 70 minutes, please. Let's start with 33 sections - with the intention of ending up with 99 ;).

Please use the special disclaimer (see note 1 below).

You are welcome to contribute as many as you wish, and there is no need to "sign-up" before recording as long as the work is clearly in the public domain (i.e. read from a source published in 1922 or earlier), but you are welcome to post here to state your intent or if you have a query about the PD status. You can record a story or poem that has been recorded for LibriVox before, but I'd rather not have more than one version within this collection, if possible.

There are some suggestions of things to record in my next post. All suggestions welcome, especially in languages other than English.
This collection will close on 31st July in order for it to be catalogued in time for the 9th anniversary of LibriVox on 10th August 2014 (or at 99 submissions, whichever comes sooner). This, unless something extraordinary happens, will be the only volume.

NEW READERS: Please see the information below the Magic Window.

1. Record
  • At the BEGINNING Say: "[Title of Work], by [Author Name]" "This is recorded to celebrate the 9th anniversary of LibriVox. All Librivox Recordings are in the public domain. For more information or to volunteer, please visit Librivox.org"
  • At the END, say: "End of [Title], by [Author Name]"
  • If you wish, you may also say: "Read by...your name."
  • Please leave 5 seconds of silence at the end of your recording or 10 seconds if longer than 30 minutes.
2. Use the following metadata and file name:
  • ID3 Tags:
    • • Title/Name: [Title]
      • Artist: [Author Name]
      • Album: LibriVox 9th Anniversary Collection
    3. Export your recording to an mp3 file at 128kpbs using the following filename:
    • File Name: Put file name all in lowercase, and the title all in one word (no leading articles i.e. the, a, an, and NO SPACES): 9anni_title_author_yourinitials_128kb.mp3(all lower-case) (e.g. 9anni_ninepoints_bennett_rg_128kb.mp3)
4. Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader:

BC Admin NEW READERS: Please read the Newbie Guide to Recording and do a short test recording before submitting here, just to make sure that all your settings are OK. Then please read this post carefully and refer back to it. It has all the information you need to submit a recording successfully.

Than you, Sarah. Yes, it does, but I am actually starting this one later than I started last year's :?. I don't think I'm up for a 9th anniversary song this year, though. Perhaps for the 10th...

I'd love to contribute Shakespeare's Sonnet IX.
Between being a full-time college student and working 20+ hours per week, I'm not able to be involved at LV these days, but I remain a loyal fan and look forward to a triumphant return sometime in the (probably distant) future.
