Here is the section 01. October

I would appreciate feedback... :hmm:

I'm concerned about mouth noises, but if something else stands out please let me know. I'll fix it before I upload the next one.

I liked your reading! As far as feedback, your recording is a little on the loud side. It should be between 87 and 91 db, and yours hit at 91.4. I did hear one or two mouth noises, like lip smacking, but they were very quiet and did not bother me. You do have some decent plosives in there though (where you pronounce a th or f or p and you get a blowing sound on the mic). That can usually be avoided by positioning the mic a little above or a little under your mouth, so that you don't blow directly on it when you speak. An example is at 9 seconds in, when you say "play".

I leave it up to you if you want to re-record. Just reduce the volume to be within 87-91 db, and I will consider it good. Overall, I enjoyed your delivery of the poem!
