During my break from blogging I have, between many projects, been seeking new forms of art and new mediums to explore. Until today I hadn’t experimented much with audio. I have experience singing and podcasting, but have never really dabbled with editing, beyond making my podcasts sound cleaner.
Browsing the Erotic Meet website I came across the July/August 2012 Competition and immediately began to feel my creative cogs move. Shortly afterwards I noticed that the competition closes tonight at midnight and dismissed the idea. Definitely not enough time. Besides which, I’m not photographing myself anymore, and I have plenty of writing projects on the go to keep my fingers tapping, and the topic – First Time – seemed like something I’d be hard pressed to work within. What haven’t I done?
However, I felt inspired and wanted to do something fun, and began to think about audio editing.
It didn’t take long for me to find a sultry, dark, despairing piece of piano music in the public domain and before I knew it I was searching my archives for a piece of poetry or erotic fiction that I could record over the music and play around with a bit.
Laughing, wholeheartedly, at the melodrama of what I was creating, I giggled between takes, but mostly managed to maintain the utter desperation of the piece.
I think it’s hysterical, but perhaps it’s haunting. Either way, it’s my first time truly using my editing software. And it’s melodramatic as fuck.
So here you go, a reading of I Do Not Lust For Difficulty, over Fantastic Dim Bar by Kevin McLeod. I doubt this is what he had in mind for it..
