Art Work (Part 2)

Last month I posted a series of Mp3s with the idea of producing of an audio version of the “Art Work” newspaper, inviting readers of the blog to record their own oral recitation of one of the texts (see http://www.artandwork.us/). Some friends got in touch and a few made recordings. I’m posting three more here as a follow-up. I’ll also reiterate the invitation in greater detail below in the form of a mini how-to.

Record your own: Using the microphone built into your computer, record one of the texts in a single sitting. If you don’t have audio software (such as Garage Band) you can download Audacity. It’s free and easy-to-use. While recording your reading, if you make a mistake, pause, and start again from the beginning of the sentence (this makes it easier to edit). Then upload the file (without editing) to Yousendit or some other web-based file sharing tool and email the link to: openspace@delpesco.com
