inspired by the themetafictionist's 'Bliss (blackout poetry)' RECord, i thought it would be fun to see what other poems could come out of tori's BLISS writing piece, so i came up with this here thing.
i don't know what accent this is... it's fake... if you couldn't tell. sometimes it sounds like stimpy :
vo stem in results.
Please listen LOUDish and preferably with headphones. first pass @ this. i haven't done much with it except lay the separate audio tracks down and move them around a bit. i messed with the audio levels and balance slightly, but not with too much thought. i left the background music that pam had included in on her audio & you can hear the piano creep in at several moments. i actually like the effect in most instances (especially when the harmonica makes a guest appearance), but i think i need a little more depth in the various sounds so that it blends a bit more? i'm also thinking the ending could use something. maybe i just add in a ton of whisper tracks and fade out gradually? let me know if anyone has ideas or suggestions. i should mention that i am not a "music mixer" or composer (to be honest, i think i just about crashed my freeware audacity will all these tracks) but i am experimenting avant garde style and i am inspired to teach myself new ways of creating. i like the idea that you can't always hear the words clearly, but that your brain is picking them up regardless. <3
i thought it'd be fun to start a "you know you're a hitRECorder when..." list. any witty/touching/humorous/sentimental suggestions for the list? :-() CONTRIBUTE HERE

EVERYONE! Contribute VIDEO and AUDIO testimonials answering the question: WHY DO I HITRECORD?
Once we have a bunch of contributions, VIDEO EDITORS start editing them together into MINI-DOCUMENTARIES, 30 SECOND INTERSTIALS or 5 SECOND BUMPERS!
We think these will be GREAT resources for the community :)
And here are some valuable words of wisdom from JOLYNNE, the creator of the Documentary Collaboration which inspired this collaboration.
