I do like a challenge. Like, apparently, a podcast a week for LibriVox between now and Christmas. I have a plan, and the first one went well … so I’m hoping the content rolls in for the others just as easily. And that I manage to find hours in the day for the edits and… Read more »

Recordings for LibriVox.org and various other places
This posted a little while ago, but forgive me, I’m just catching up! Wanted – 7 Fearless Engineers! by Warner Van Lorne (a pseudonym of F. Orlin Tremaine), is a recent addition to Gutenberg, which, at about 20k words, seemed like it might fit perfectly for a LibriVox London Chapter meetup. And so the five… Read more »
Something new for me here — a non-LibriVox, fully-copyright recording. Nobodies and Somebodies is a short fantasy story recorded for the podcast at Abherrant Dreams. Free of charge, a neat story … and if you prefer reading to listening, it can also be found here.
Soooo, almost a year after I started working on it, and several months after Mandarine agreed to take on the huge task of editing this lovely-crazy book, ’tis done. The Wood Beyond the World, by William Morris, is available as a LibriVox audiobook. http://librivox.org/the-wood-beyond-the-world-by-william-morris/ (Or stream each section through the online player here: http://www.archive.org/details/woodbeyondtheworld_0810_librivox )… Read more »
Euterpe Archipelago* have been putting their pick of public domain recordings to music for a while now, and my voice has popped up there now and again. Just stumbled across one that’s new-to-me … it’s an excerpt from Paradise Lost, with original music. Paradise 101 * Alternative site, with other tracks.
I’ve spoken a bit of French, Latin and German within mainly English chapters, but my first beginning-to-end recording in a language other than English has just been released to the LibriVox catalogue, in Alphonse Allais’ À se tordre. I confess it’s only a *part* of the chapter, since the piece is a mini-play with four… Read more »
It’s been quiet on the cataloguing front in the last few weeks … I eased back on the editing I was doing, having acquired (happily-intermittant!) tendinitis in my mousing arm, which is little better with a trackball and heaps of anti-inflamatories, as yet. And I’m in the middle of lots of projects, none of which… Read more »
LibriVox loves Shakespeare, but getting his plays recorded has always been a very major undertaking. We have now only four completed as collaborative works, and one recorded as a solo. A fair number more are underway, but the task of cat-herding all the parts and bits and files and readers and pronunciations is unlike any… Read more »
A bunch of us LibriVoxers have been meeting periodically in London to record various works together, and the longest running of those has recently been catalogued. 17 chapters of recycled British folklore and gossip from the very dear T.F. Thistleton-Dyer have been amusing, bemusing and plain boring a dozen of us for a year now… Read more »
As part of the LibriVox London get-together this weekend, we sauntered along to Greenwich, to record in the foot tunnel which runs under the Thames. We hadn’t planned it in advance, and simply took along a giant book of poetry to dip into. My dips were pretty random, but I’m most happy with how one… Read more »
