Our Own Lane

Blog Posted:2/6/2013 11:10:00 AM
After a year and a half, I've finally come up with enough material to start recording. I want my words to breathe. If I pursue this book, I don't want the cover to muffle out my voice. By pushing play, I believe we can emphasize, dictating the listener emotionally. These writes has never seen the light of day. A few takes, overdubbing, theatrical noises, adlibs, effects, and a open mind to see beyond the ink! I'm not sure if it'll be successful; i just want to be in my own lane. Since I don't look down on people, when I look in my rear view, I expect to see no one. But you are welcomed to come along for the ride! LETS REVIVE OUR ART FORM?

    Thanks! People have read my poems, and give the thumbs up, on most occasions, but preferred me saying it. They all said, I didn't read it like that; and preferred the vocal delivery. So mentally, I'm like hmmm!

    I have a title, the cover possibly. I know it should be appealing to the eye! Another year of work and recording, I should see the light.

    Just looking beyond the book cover. I like when I vocalize pieces, compared to reading quietly; it excites me a lot more! Thanks Seren!

    You're already vocal with your writes. So you're ready. I'm rehearsing to memorize, so I can be comfortable and to put emphasis on the wording. Thanks to digital equipment, I can punch in and out to clean up my mistakes, without having to deliver the whole poem again!
