PL OK. Thanks!

(I took it in two doses, so it wasn't strong enough to knock me out.) ;)

Tricia,
I found the Copper story mildly interesting, but then I have an interest in inorganic chemistry from my school days. It's strange to hope that listeners won't share my interest! You have a sleepy time ahead of you with this collection.

Thank you! I should be able to listen today.

Copyright law: Well, that was a mouthful, wasn't it? :lol:

You started out nice and slow and relaxed, but gradually sped up, starting around 17 minutes. Around 22 minutes I was starting to feel a little uptight and anxious because the speed was... speedy. :) No need to change the tempo or do anything to this recording to change that, but if you record another section for this project, please consciously keep yourself relaxed and easygoing throughout the recording, if you can. :)

0:25 - longish pause
5:06 - longish pause
7:10 - longish pause
12:35 - pause (this one I'm being picky on). :)
39:02 - pause
40:20 - pause
50:17 - pause
52:40 - long pause between main body of work and the "End of" outro. Maybe cut this down to about 2 seconds?

Volume is a bit low, especially at the beginning - then gradually gets louder. Please:

- Compress at -13 threshold, ratio 2.5:1 this will be sufficient to allow you to then...
- Amplify by 3 dB.

(I'm glad this wasn't word-perfect PL! I bet you are, too.) ;)

Yes! Word perfect PL would be painful :lol:

Here is the corrected version. I also slowed down the tempo slightly of the end. Hopefully it sounds alright!

At about what point (time stamp) did you start the slowdown? :)

EDIT: Sounds OK to me. Spot PL OK!

I would like to take on Chromosome 21 of the Human Genome Project. Is it alright to say the name of the nucleotide (Adenine, Guanine, etc.), instead of just reading the letter ("AAGC") it represents?

Also, I skipped the thousands and thousands of N's that appear at the beginning of the text--hope that's OK!

Thanks!

I don't know, and I can't quickly download the text to see what it looks like. I'll get you an answer Sunday or Monday. :)

Thanks Trisha, no hurry whatsoever 8-)

The link to Gutenberg downloads a 10Mb text file, which begins with literally thousands of nothing but letter N’s, followed by the order of nucleotides of chromosome 21, represented by A, C, G, and T for adenine, cytosine, guanine, and thymine. So the rest of the text file just looks like this:

AGTAAGCTCAATTGAC.....which goes on and on.

I was thinking that saying the actual names might be more ‘sleep inducing’ than just saying the letters aloud.

Thanks!

I'm not sure which would be more sleep inducing. I guess my question would be, does one way or the other make the file fit better into the 30-70 minute time limit. If saying the full names makes it too long, then the letters only would probably be better. Whatever makes the recording not sound rushed, but I think it'd be best to include the whole chromosome rather than cutting off partway.

My humble opinion; take it or leave it. ;)

And yeah, it sounds like you can remove the N's. I wonder if they made each chromosome file the same number of characters, and just filled N's into the ones that are shorter.

Hi Tricia (I'm sorry I misspelled your name in my last post! :oops: ),

There's no way to get the entire chromosome into a 30-70 minute recording. Maybe 30-70 hours--it's huge!

I will hold off until you get a chance to see the file, and if you think it's not a good fit for this project, I will happily pick something else.

Again I'm sorry!

Have a good weekend,

Brian

No problem! I didn't realize it was that long. I guess I didn't know how long chromosomes are. :)

I would think that a long string of letters would be more sleep-inducing, but do it whichever way you prefer.

I will take your suggestion and read the letters.

Thanks and have a good weekend!
