Our audiobooks create much pleasure, and spread knowledge and literacy around the world, but did you know they are also great fodder for art? In addition to using my own voice in my art and music (and for audiobooks), I have featured a few Librivox recordings in various sound collage and electronic music projects that I have participated in.
Recently, I participated in this major effort which was just released: http://secondculture.bandcamp.com/album/thunder-conjuring-mind
. And guess what — so did some of you!
So a big THANK YOU goes to the following:
for sultry samples from "Le cantique des cantiques
" from the Louis Segond Bible on track 4: "Tuning the Dream Door, part 1"
for a sample from "The Nothing Equation
" by Tom Godwin on track 9 "Across the Void"
To Janet Moursund
for the same phrase
from her reading of "The Nothing Equation
". It was so excellent to have multiple samples for this track!
Finally, to David Barnes
for a few of his "Fifteen Thousand Useful Phrases
" by Grenville Kleiser on track 11: "Entheon Centuries". How whimsical and mysterious they become.
I also owe another (belated) shout out to David Barnes, for his reading of Prime Numbers, which added so much to this track
in another collaborative project from a few years ago. David, your voice is beautiful, and I hope to be able to weave it into my work again in the future.
You all make me proud to be a member of this community. Thank you.
