Experiment

I thought I would have a go at doing an audioblog.  This is what I came up with:

It seems to have worked.  The last syllable was cut off. I actually said, “This has been Trevor Locke, two thousand and nineteen.” If I do another audio piece I will rehearse it before I record it. I also need to make sure the script works with the speech.

But this has been a quick experiment. I didn’t want to spend a lot of time working on something that would not function. I can make some technical improvements. No doubt. Whether I will want to do it on a regular basis. Remains to be seen.

Invigorated by the success of the previous exercise, I decided to record one of my poems. Day again, 1966. Not previously published.

There is an added something to hearing someone speaking a poem. Rather than just reading it from a page.
