Shadows, Read by Christopher Vera

Hello, dear readers. Continuing my grand experiment in audio poetry, I’ve recorded myself reading “Shadows” from Transmissions to the Mystic Nebula. Would love your feedback.

If you have a cool or interesting voice (or are just passionate about poetry), and would be willing to read one of my poems, I’d love to add it to my collection.

  1. Find a poem you like in Transmissions and record yourself reading it. I use a free app called iTalk for my iPhone.
  2. Post your recording in MP3 format somewhere where I can find it. Send me the link.
  3. I’ll download the file and post it here along with your name and your website (if its all right with you.)
  4. If you’re particularly daring, post your reading on Youtube. I’ll send my favorite readings a signed copy of the book, Transmissions to the Mystic Nebula!

Audio Poetry Experiment

I’ve been experimenting with the idea of putting some of my poetry into audio format. Every so often I’ll hear someone with a unique voice and think to myself, “Wow! I’d love to have that person read a poem or two!” So I’m looking for portable tools and software (mostly my mobile phone) to capture such moments when I get the opportunity.

Here’s my first try with my father, Thomas Vera, Sr. He’s reading “She Reminds Me of Mangos” from TRANSMISSIONS TO THE MYSTIC NEBULA.

He’s reading into my iPhone 4 using the free version of iTalk. I’d love to hear what you think.
