Hi Jimino,

It'd be great to have your readings in Mandarin and Cantonese - and very interesting to hear the same poem in two dialects by the same reader. No English, though, as this is a purely Chinese collection.

Do each recording as a separate file, following the instructions in the first post for the introduction and ending of the recording in both cases. (For the Cantonese recording, read the intro in Cantonese etc.)

In the filenames, include 'm' for the Mandarin reading, and 'c' for the Cantonese one.

Pick any poem you like, though preferably one that isn't recorded yet. If you enjoy doing this, feel free to record as many of the poems as you want to and have time to. As you can see, we love having multiple versions.

I recently played Volume 1 to a group of Chinese friends, and they were fascinated to hear not just the different dialects, but the huge range of reading styles from the various readers.

Thanks for joining in!

David

I've now copied all the information into the database, and replaced the old manual listing in the first post with the usual 'magic window'. It should show everyone's claimed poems, and links to all the files so far received.

If I've missed anyone out, or not listed a recording you've sent in, please let me know!

Captain Dave,
It seems that all the poems in Volume 2 are claimed and assigned,it's there any restriction on the number of the readers?
It's all right if there is no room for me in this volume,let me know if the PLA needs me, any volume, anywhere. :)

No, Jimino, there's no restriction on the number of recordings for a poem. The more, the merrier!

Calling all readers!

The Weekly Poetry selection this week is 月下独酌, which of course appeared in Volume 1 of 300 Tang Poems.

We're asking for recordings in Chinese as well as English. What a great opportunity to reach a wide audience with Chinese poetry!

So please join in here with your rendition.

See you there!

David

Um... do I need to ask for a poem, or do I just go ahead and record?

Just go ahead and record, Jc. We're happy to have multiple versions of each poem, so you needn't worry about which ones have been recorded already. Do as many as you like - the complete set would be ideal, but I won't hold you to that! :D

Is that a dare? :P

Here's one. Man that was long... I can't imagine how long it must be for an entire book!

That's brilliant, Jc, thank you!

Seriously, the more you can do, the better... :D

How about, for starters, the other three Li Qi poems? You can be the voice of Li Qi. Hm? Please?

Oh, I've put a copy of your file onto my server, where I keep the rest - just to make the checking and organising of this monster a little easier. I've added a link to the file in the magic window.

Thanks again,

David

Second LiQi poem done!

I looked at the other poems, and God they're long! LOL I'm too used to the usual 5/7 words, 4-line poems I learnt back when I was 4. Good thing there's pinyin to go with the text, 'cause I can't read half the words :wink:

BTW, if you want, I can ftp the files up to your server; it'll save you some time.
