The Lines of the Hand

Fiddling with sound today, click below to hear preliminary results. I need to work a lot with sound. As a first effort, I’ve recorded a piece by Argentinian poet Julio Cortazar — something of a cop-out, but I’m being nice to myself as this is my first go. Made it I hope a tad more interesting by adding visuals — a neat movie to watch about The Line, which includes the translated text of the piece at the end. It gets a bit cheesy at the end, but otherwise an interesting watch. Feedback more than welcome – should I never read anything aloud again?

  1. For what it’s worth, I thought your reading was wonderful. I was completely hypnotized and listened four times. Thanks for the piece and for the visual, as well!
