Ringing in the New Year (LibriVox Community Podcast)


Lord Alfred Tennyson wrote:
Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light:
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.


Help us celebrate the new year with LibriVox.

Here are some ideas to get you started:
* A short PD poem or story about New Year's
* LV goals for 2017
* LibriVox memories for 2016
Etc. Also I'm going to do a group rendition of Auld Lang Syne, complete with Robert Burn's original lyrics (that's gonna be fun! :) ) . More info on that to follow.

Of course, you don't have to follow the theme. If you have some other sections or stories about LV you'd like to share, feel free to.

At the beginning of your recording, please say, "Happy new year!"

You don't have to sign up before you complete a section, but I would appreciate it if you would let me know you are willing to take part.

How are segments proof-listened?
Segments will be checked for technical errors by the host. Use the tech specs below.

Channels: 1 (Mono)
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz

Can I advertise my audiobook?
Yes, please! Limit 1 per soloist or BC. Please keep advertisements < 2 minutes. You can include the description, a list of some of the readers participating, and a short clip of the audio (maybe from the preface or prologue?) To keep the amount of advertisements short, I'm going to limit the total number of advertisements to 10. Also, please only advertise audiobooks that have been cataloged in the last 3 or 4 months.

How long is the limit for sections?
Try to keep the sections under 15 minutes, but if you go over, that's okay.


What's the deadline?

Please complete your sections by December 28th.

May I coordinate a podcast?
Sure! Check out the LibriVox Community Podcast Planning thread!

Where do I upload completed segments?
Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader: https://librivox.org/login/uploader
Image
You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: cori - Cori

What do I name files?
Please name files:
communitypodcast_yymm_[initials]_[segmentname].mp3 (where yy is year in two digits, and mm is month in two digits)
Example: communitypodcast_1612_kgr_ringoutwildbells.mp3

Auld Lang Syne Group Recording

Quote:
SHOULD auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to min'?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days o' lang syne?

CHORUS
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne.

We twa hae rin about the braes,
And pu'd the gowans fine;
But we've wander'd monie a weary fit
Sin' auld lang syne.

CHORUS
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl't i' the burn,
Frae mornin' sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin' auld lang syne.

CHORUS
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne.

And here 's a hand, my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o' thine;
And we'll tak a right guid-willie waught
For auld lang syne.

CHORUS
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne.

And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp,
And surely I'll be mine;
And we'll tak a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne!

CHORUS x2
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne.


You're welcome to sing just the chorus, or include the verses too. :)

Sing along to this recording: https://librivox.org/uploads/cori/communitypodcast_1612_kgr_auldlangsyne.mp3

Of course! I'm still looking for a source for the music of Auld Lang Syne - which is much harder than I had thought it would be...

Considering you've already been looking, you may have already come across this, but here's a nice instrumental version from Archive, which says it's in the public domain:

There's a version with music and lyrics in The Franklin Square Song Collection, published in 1881, so clearly PD. Auld Lang Syne is on page 104.

Thank you both! Maria, I will use that sheet music for the recording. Twinkle, I'll use that MP3 in the podcast, up it to the key of C and use it as part of the song.

Oh, you don't actually need the U.S. Marine Corps Band for this song -- your guitar music sounds great!! :D

P.S. I'll try to get something sent in soon -- only a week left! :shock: Hm... I think I'll add this project to my signature again to drum up some interest, hopefully, if that's alright. (Maybe in bright, dizzying rainbow colors again! :mrgreen: )

I've actually been looking for something like the marine corps recording. If it doesn't fit in with the group recording, I'll use it for a sound effect. :)

ETA - And thanks for putting it in your signature - yikes, only a week left! :shock:

Hey! How are you? I am willing to help... Just a question, I read the thread and I didn't quite understand, so, May I read a new year's poem? Is it possible to read maybe a short story? And, could I look for something in Spanish - since it is my first language- and read it in Spanish?

Is the deathline on December 28th?

Hello Kangaroo,

Here's my contribution made in a rush. Sorry if my pronunciation is not top-notch.

Hi, I'm doing great! Yes you're welcome to read a poem or short story! :D Although I highly recommend that you try to find something in English (the language most of the podcast is in), if you don't find anything you like in English you can submit a Spanish. Yes, the deadline is on December 28th. As long as you submit before the 29th, you're good. :)
