Erotic Meet Competition: First Time

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..

    This is quite frankly AMAZING! I say enthralled throughout the whole piece, the sobbing made my nipples go hard…. was that the kind of reaction you were hoping for?


    • Harper Eliot says:

      My my! Thank you Molly. I have to, say despite the fact that it makes me laugh, I quite like it too. I may have to do a few more of these soundscapes.

      And who knows what reaction I was hoping for? Any reaction is exciting.

    I was utterly spellbound from beginning to end. Gotta listen again…and again…
    It made my soul salivate, as before a feast. Please make more. Pretty please.

    • Harper Eliot says:

      I’ll see what I can do! Pretty much inspired by the music, so I suppose I’ll have to go and search the public domain for more inspiration.

      Thank you!

    It is haunting… and enthralling. I was literally sat just staring at the screen, like a stunned animal. Brilliant! -x- (& Good Luck!)

    • Harper Eliot says:

      Thank you! You know I almost forgot about the competition side of it being a competition, haha. But it was really fun to do.

  4. Nobilis Reed says:

    Marvelous. Simply marvelous. I think my (relative) lack of estrogen keeps me from finding much eroticism in sobbing, but it did move me.

    • Harper Eliot says:

      Ooh, interesting. Was that a lack of eroticism, or a lack of arousal? This piece seems, to me, to deal with eroticism, but it’s certainly not written (or recorded) to arouse.

      Thank you! So glad you like it.

    I feel I can only echo exactly what everyone has said above. This is simply magnificent. I love it entirely. So many different layers. The music is perfect. I can’t stop listening to it. :)
