Multilingual Short Works Collection 018 - Poetry & Prose

This collection is for short works, in any language except (modern) English. This can include poetry but also prose, fiction as well as non-fiction.
Feel free to choose any work which is in the public domain. If you're unsure what we mean by 'public domain', please read this explanation. Try to stick to works that run less than 60 minutes.
Please follow the instructions in this post carefully. :) There is no need to "sign-up" before recording; please remember that you should choose a work that is Public Domain in your country AND that was published before 1923; if you are unsure about anything, please post here and ask before recording!


Everyone can contribute as many recordings as he/she wants.
It's OK to submit readings in English (English being a language, I figure), but as there are plenty of other places to put those, let's limit them to special cases such as interesting regional dialects or accents.

If you are interested to see what has been done previously, check the previous Multilingual Collections in our catalog (but we welcome multiple versions of the same work).


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!

BEFORE recording
If you are new, please check the Recording Guide before recording:
http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Newbie_Guide_to_Recording
Please be sure that your recording software is set to the following technical specifications:
Bit Rate: 128 kbps
Sample Rate: 44100 kHz
Channels: 1 (Mono recording).

DURING recording:
No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
Make sure you add this to the beginning of your recording:
START of recording (Intro) The intro and outro can be in English, or in the language of the text.

"[Title] by [author], read in [language]. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
At the END, say: "End of [Title], by [Author Name]"
If you wish, you may also say: "Read by [your name]."

There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

Only for works shorter than 500 words you can use the short or poetry disclaimer:

"[Work title], by [author], read in [language] for LibriVox.org by [your name]".

At the End say: "End of [Title]. This recording is in the public domain".

AFTER recording
Add ID3 V2 tags
(To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)

Title: Language - Work Title (e.g. Chinese - Chun Si)
Artist: Author Name (e.g. Peter Wang)
Album: LibriVox Multilingual Short Works Collection 018

(You may put "Recorded by [your name]" in the comments section if you wish)
Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

Save as mp3 file
File name all in lowercase: msw018_[work's title]_[author's last name]_[your initials]_128kb.mp3
(e.g. msw018_chunsi_wang_drb_128kb.mp3)
Put file name all in lower case, the title all in one word, drop articles (without the square brackets, please, and NO SPACES)

Hellooo

I'd like to participate in recording a poem in Arabic, Al Aajroumia "الأجرومية" by Obaidu-rabbihi Mohammad Aabbah Ash-Shanqiti "عبيد ربه محمد آبه الشنقيطي" (he passed away around 300 years ago)

It's an educational poem specialized in Arabic grammar rules (An-nahw "النحو").

QUESTION 1: Does such a poem fit in this collection? (it will be within the specified time set for "short works" obviously)

QUESTION 2: I was thinking of "reciting" the poem rather than just "reading" it. (I have a sample in my voice to illustrate how I'll be "reciting" it.

I look forward to this and possibly other short works in the collection .

Cheers!

Hello! It fits. The edition should still be published before 1923. Fine to the "reciting" part of you recording will be according to the text.

sorry, Nastya, I just noticed I had one "space" too many in my file-name after "gespenst". I re-uploaded the new corrected name:

https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/msw018_drolechtgespenst_anonymous_ss_128kb.mp3
Could you please change it in the MW ? Thanks

Sonia
