By the Sea, and Other Verses by Hannah Lavinia Baily (1837 - 1921).

Quote:
This is a collection of poetry by Hannah Lavinia Baily. They describe a number of different settings, prominently the sea in the titular poem, and bring in contemporary as well as mythical themes. ( Carolin)


    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
      Please note that we handle a one month deadline for poetry projects!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/40237
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

      Set your recording software to:
      Channels: 1 (Mono)
      Bit Rate: 128 kbps
      Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
    7. DURING recording:
      No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
      • At the beginning of the recording, read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
      "[Poem title], by Hannah Lavinia Baily, read for LibriVox.org" by [your name] or some variation on that, adding date, location, your personal URL, etc., if you wish.
      • Then read the poem.
      • At the end, say: "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain." and leave five seconds of silence.
    8. At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of By the Sea, and Other Verses by Hannah Lavinia Baily.
      There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

      Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
    9. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?
      Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      bythesea_##_baily_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. bythesea_01_baily_128kb.mp3)
    10. [b]Example ID3 V2 tags (just leave those blank!)

      Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
      Transfer of files (completed recordings) Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
      • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader: https://librivox.org/login/uploader
        Image
        (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
      • You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: Carolin
      • When your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread.
      • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

absolutely. this project at the moment doesnt have any sections that are ready to be listened to. but if sections come in before we catch ourselves an official dpl, you can go ahead and listen to those. it is fun especially because you get to have a cursory glance at many different projects and listen to many different readers this way :)

by the way, you can help out in all projects listed over in listeners wanted. if there is a section "ready for pl", cruise over to the thread and (first check the latest couple of posts to see if anything happened and then) just go ahead and listen and post your pl feedback. the bc will be glad for help even if you cannot commit to being the dpl.

https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/bythesea_33_baily_128kb.mp3 1m41s
https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/bythesea_24_baily_128kb.mp3 0m50s

I tried a different microphone here, and despite it being a £500 microphone (borrowed), I was disappointed with the result. I have applied quite drastic noise reduction, and this can be heard here and there. There's also quite a bit of editing out of 'the sounds of silence' between words due to the noise reduction making breath sounds (etc.) sound bionic. However, overall I think the sound here is acceptable.
