I'm interested in reading any small female roles that are left over. I'm new so sorry if I didn't interpret the MW right, but I wasn't sure what the first half of unassigned sections were (since there are chapter lists at the bottom)
Welcome to LibriVox! In the far right column, you can see it says status, and if it says open then it is available. The lower part of the mw is for editing the chapters, and nothing is open there. There aren't really any more available female parts. All the smaller parts are open for both male and female readers, as is the bigger main parts. I would say that if you want something bigger than the really smart parts, then Signor Pastrini would be a good point in between.
Please make sure you complete the "1 Minute Test" for review before you start actively recording any chapters for projects. This is NOT an audition, but a way to check to make sure all your technical settings are correct, your volume loud enough, etc. You will find the information for the 1-Minute Test Recording here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test
. The instructions also tell you how to upload your test and then post in the Listeners and Editors Wanted forum so someone can give you feedback on it.
Also, as this is a Dramatic Reading, here's a few tips to make a great recording.
First, try and make sure you have as little background noise as possible. Follow the tips here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Noise_Cleaning
Second, when recording a part, think of it as having a conversation. How would you naturally speak? read the text and see how the character reacts to the things around him, and if it doesn't say, then try to imagine it yourself. Let the reactions sound in your voice. A line can be read in extremely different ways, depending on if the character is sad or happy, so just remember to pay attention to the text and what is going on around him.
Third, when you edit after you have recorded (you will edit, we all do), leave at least 3-4 seconds between the lines, so that it will be clear when I edit where the break is.
