Hello I-Tim, sorry this post somehow got overlooked but you're now officially signed up for those 4 poems.

Here is your personal reader page: https://librivox.org/reader/15201 if you want your reader name to be different from your forum name, please let me know and it can be easily changed.

All the details on how to say the intro/outro correctly and how to name the file for this project can be found in the first post.

Have fun with your first official recordings :)

Red lips and lost love, I guess.

Lads from Liverpool. Catchy name for some singing group, I suppose?
Glad we didn't get stuck with that. :lol:
Thanks you, Larry, great readings! All PL-OK, with the exception of one word in the "Anna" (Section 40) poem ... instead of "The folk who rest there all their days", I can hear "The folk who rest there all their ways".

Thanks,
Chris

I have always felt that Bacchus was my kind of God :lol:
Beware, Maenads, someone is after your Beaujolais! :lol:

Great reading, Alan, and PL-OK.

Thanks,

43, 51, 53, 57 are all PL-OK. Well read, Deandra!

Section 57 is rather low in sound-volume, coming in at about 78, rather than the required 89. I've adjusted it myself, but in future you can check and amplify the audio using mp3gain app available at http://mp3gain.sourceforge.net/

Many thanks,
Chris

Hello!

My uploads for 11, 39, and 41 are complete:


https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/wineandroses_11_daley_128kb.mp3

https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/wineandroses_39_daley_128kb.mp3

https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/wineandroses_41_daley_128kb.mp3

Times are:

11: 2 min 15 sec
39: 1 min 38 sec
41: 2 min 19 sec

Reader: EJ Lavery

I am well nervous about these, so if there's anything awful let me know, I'm happy to re-do them!

Thank you all!

Best,

EJ
Hi EJ!

Let me just begin by asking ... are you a professional voice artist in some capacity? Several of our Librivox volunteer readers here are, and I was just blown away by your voice and reading ability.

The poem readings for 11 (Paudheen's Fairy) and 39 (Mavourneen) are perfect.

For 41 (The Green Harper), I'm afraid you forgot to turn the last page ... there's six more lines to read on the next page. Don't worry, we've all done that at one time or another.

One thing with the intro and extro before and after each poem ... only the first and the last poem does the long versions. For all the poems from the second to the second last inclusive, we just use the short intro/extro. This is the relevant bit reproduced here...

All Other Sections, use shorter intro"[Poem title] by Victor J. Daley, read for LibriVox.org" by [your name] or some variation on that, adding date, location, your personal URL, etc., if you wish."

END of recording
At the end of the section, say:
"End of poem. This recording is in the public domain."
If you wish, say:
"Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"


It would be a simple matter with the first two poems to just replace the long intro/extro without touching the poem in between ... do you know how to edit with Audacity? If not, I'll ask Kitty, once Europe wakes up in a little while, to point you towards the most current info on Audacity editing.

But again, a wonderful voice and emotive reading! Have you considered taking a role in the Plays or the Dramatic Readings in the DR forum? Todd runs a lot of plays over there, and I have some of my own going too at the moment.

Cheers,
Chris

Chris, it would be best if the readers adjust and reupload their own files, because with each re-upload someone needs to Spot PL that the correct file is in the MW and you should not do that for your own corrections. So I will do it in this case and I downloaded 57. The volume is fine and all seems to be there. PL ok.

The other reason why the readers should do their own corrections is so that they learn and get better at editing right away. If you do it all for them, they can never improve (learning by doing, as you know ;) )

Thanks

Sonia

Thanks, Chris! What a nice thing to say! I'm not, but I appreciate the comment. Especially as it lessens the sting of all those errors. I copied the poems over to a document for easier reading, but I clearly missed some bits. Ugh. Fortunately, I can edit in Audacity, so I'll correct the outros. And, of course, I'll sort out The Green Harper and reload it.

And then I'll check out the DR forum, because that also sounds like fun! :)

Thanks again,

EJ

Great read and PL-OK, Alan.

I sometimes wonder, as I listen to you poring over these bohemian poems, whether I can also hear the sound of you pouring into the bohemian glass. :lol:

But of course, it would be perfectly justified artistically. :mrgreen:

Cheers,
Chris
