reBirth from a track that doesn't work

The audio track from a video poem, worked a little differently for an audio only version. Prose poetry, voice, mix by moi; music: José Travieso's track, 'Monster,' on his album, "No More Faith."

The next day: listening, no, I don't think this recording works. The sound of the breath is okay in the dance video but here it is bothersome. And it looks like I didn't fully remove the former filters from the clip right at the end, which is alright in the recording I guess.

Anyway, I think to make something listenable I need to re-record the prose poem, perhaps layer it in the style I was developing in my last poetry album. A style I haven't continued exploring because, except for one person, no-one commented on, or even mentioned their response to the intricacy of all that layering of readings of single poems. Virtually none of the musicians whose musi…

This slide went by too quickly to
include it in the micro video poem.

Blogger's movie has a charm, yes it does. In that smallness.
Tree Bird Moon is also secretly -only not so now- uploaded
to Picasa. If you click on the image below you will go to a

Below, one of the slides I didn't use in the slideshow movie,
which was very short, and this slide whipped by too quickly
(click for a larger size, the scribbler site has potential,
I tell you it does):

I wanted to show my brother how easy it is to make a slideshow movie in Picasa (for the desktop). As I was waiting for him, I started to collect a sample of benign images. He was held up.
