only two for the moment. They are more thoughtful and less cheerio than I would have expected for a warm summer month.

Sonia,

11-13 and 15 are PL OK and just as beautiful as the others :thumbs:

PL note section 14:
from 0:17-0:25 there is an intermittent buzzing/humming noise in the background.

Tovarisch,

3, 16, 17, 18, 20 all PL OK :thumbs: Very nicely read!

I have one comment on section 19,
0:09 I hear "Getting even higher, higher" where I was expecting "ever".
I know this shouldn't be word-perfect PL but I think it does change the meaning a bit in this poem. But up to you if you want to correct it.

I just listened to this with earphones and I hear absolutely nothing at all :? Also checking the audacity window I don't see any high background noise lines. Are you sure it was in section 14 ? I can't hear anything disturbing at all. Maybe ask Carolin as referee in this case ;)

Yeah it's hard to see in Audacity (I can't pinpoint it either), it's not constantly present but really intermittent--and it occurs mostly during your reading, not in the pauses. :?

I just listened again and it was definitely section 14. One of the more notable buzzes in my opinion is while you say "August 14th" at 0:21.
