Someone recently mentioned wanting to get a friend to read my recent "how to" posts aloud.  I don't do podcasting, but I know that I have a handful of vision-impaired folks in my audience who rely on audio.  Would anyone like to read aloud my stuff like Emotional First Aid posts, and maybe ad lib descriptions of any images that aren't essentially linked to a description already? If you can post something like that in a publicly accessible place that I could link to, I'd be happy to swap you poetry for your time.  Look over the unpublished stuff and let me know what appeals -- I can estimate how long it took me to write, and swap time for time, or we can compare length, etc.

So this is one way to represent the sounds of humpback whale songs.  Doubtless someone is doing this over in Terramagne too.  Just ignore the humanocentric reference to this being "almost like" a language.  0_o

I am pleased to announced that my story "Love Is for Children" is available in podfic by RyukoAkari.  Chapters 1-4 can be downloaded in MP3 format now.  Updates will add more chapters, and when complete, the work will be reposted as a single file.

You can now read Part 2 of the interview of me by Diane Severson Mori in Amazing Stories.  Along with the discussion, there are also two audio recordings of my poetry, one by Diane and one by Scott Maitland.

[livejournal.com profile] book_worm5 wrote a gorgeous performance of my poem "The Ballad of Zaavan's Revenge" from A Conflagration of Dragons.  He has a wonderful, deep, rumbly voice that reminds me of the old Tolkien cartoons.

 [personal profile] sharpeningthebones is doing a crowdfunding project for recording things and is willing to record something of mine in audio format, to be posted later in SoundCloud.  I want to make my work accessible to fans across a wider format.  My idea was to pick one of the first-in-series poems from the Serial Poetry page.  However, I don't have much experience with recording, and I know some of you do.

Which poem(s) do you think would sound best in audio?  Which do you think would make a good introduction to a series or to my work in general?  Do you have any other ideas or recommendations for this?

Beautiful, clear audio/video of spelling and pronunciation in Old Norse.  If you use this language and notation, definitely give this a listen.

Here is a snippet of "The Epic of Gilgamesh" read aloud in the original Akkadian.  There's also a link to other readings by the same scholar.  I was able to pick out names and a few words I recognize.

Here is an awesome reconstruction of Proto-Indo-European. And yes, my linguistic knack can recognize a few of those words. The sound is about right. *happydance* What is remembered, lives.
