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.

I am a hitRECorder because
I dare to be different
I inspire creativity that explodes in a manifestation of artistic collaborations
I am a hitRECorder because
I challenge you to step outside of the box
Original thinking with a mix of obscurity
That impels you to open your mind and become a visionary
I am a hitRECorder because
I am inventive
I had a thought that developed into an idea
That surged into a concept that blossomed into art
I am a hitRECorder because
I am the artist, the producer, the inventor, the architect, the writer, the innovator

A poem a day, through April, for the recite a poem collab <3
APRIL 1 mortal. by thedustdancestoo
APRIL 2 this is a warning by tori
APRIL 3 love: something/nothing by saintmaker
APRIL 4 our secret hiding places by mushr
APRIL 5 see through me by kouralilly
- POEM A DAY VO // mortal. by thedustdancestoo
you passed along,
on empty ridges of skin.
come soul, kiss another,
let us remember
- POEM A DAY VO // this is a warning by tori
THIS IS A WARNING
an anger skulks
in my little glass house of composure.
it doesn't know its own strength
but one day soon
its hulking hand will find easy freedom
through an accidentally shattered pane.
so, this is a warning: please stay away.
it is wild & clumsy & sensitive.
i regret i spent so long denying it was mine
that i never learned to tame it.
- POEM A DAY VO // love: something/nothing by sai...
i was thinking back on every girl i ever loved...or ever thought i loved...or every girl who loved me...or i ever thought loved me...and it made me realize that love is sometimes something and love is sometimes nothing...and not for nothing this made me feel like something is it better to have something than nothing even if that something makes you feel like nothing? i'm not sure, but i will ask myself and see what i come up with okay, i asked myself and i came up with nothing but i'm not giving up contemplating this next time i have nothing to do
that's something, right?
- POEM A DAY // our secret hiding places by mushr
Our Secret Hiding Places
Let's jump into the movie screen,
a rainy day, a broken umbrella,
a musical comedy.
A Gene Kelly scene,
tapdancin' in the rain.
Late at night, instead of dreaming
we'll slip into a Godard film.
Inside a French cafe,
We will be the only two drinking
coffee from a yellow bowl,
as we watch a trio dance.
Then you will pull a Citizen Kane,
arrange me in black and white.
You will rewrite our history, Rosebud
I will leave you clues
that will torture you.
It will be the greatest mystery
It will win over the critics,
and puzzle the beatniks.
Then just before the sun comes up,
we'll walk together in Dreams,
conjure up a little magical realism.
I will take a nap under a Peach Orchard,
while you get lost in a Blizzard.
Our friends will weep for us,
because they would all think that we're dead.
But just before we reach the end,
we'll smile again, and be amazed by
the journey we have taken.
And although, it seems nothing really
extraordinary happens to us everyday folks
You and I are heroes in our secret lives.
We are everyday spies. We act surprise,
at the mundane things in life.
After all, it's all an adventure.
We've got the bird's eye view,
the first screening,
the unrated version of a film.
We'll take a bite at it all
these different slices of life,
until the director yells cut.
- POEM A DAY // see through me by kouralilly
see through me
i wish there was a way
i could weave words
but frustratedly failing,
convinced kisses can conceive
a concrete concept
in your cranium,
i leave my lips
between breathless binds -
where eye to eye
that fickle friends
no truer testimony
the burning brimming beating
of my heretofore
and while words won’t win
and true –
i’ll wish you could stand
right where i do
so one day
- I Eat the Broadcast (VO)
sorry Day Glo i forgot to read of off the redux :/ i had some other takes but decided on uploading just the one for now.
also, the "ha" in this one is a bit contrived. might need another take :)
- and a new earth / whisper track
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
