Greeting in English and Spanish and a bit of Ayöök, Chinanteco, and Zapateco. Talk to me in any language = Hablame en cualquier idioma
Recording audio is easier than ever with smartphones and tablets. There are times in which livestreaming an recorded video is a better choice for recording conferences, talks, and walks, but for commentary and nature soundscapes, audio rocks. I used iPadio which I maintained as an archive of sounds from markets in Oaxaca, Mexico. Now the go-to app is Periscope.
Personally, I want to keep my commentary/observations to a minimum. Sometimes I come up with a clever insight, but it’s so easy to ramble! Hopefully, today’s recording is the happy medium – 20 minutes of birds and planes and 2 minutes of Ron.
On my wishlist, I’d like to hear soundscapes from friends, perhaps ambient sounds from the locale and/or commentary, introductions, and explanations, particularly from the faves on Twitter. We can read your works, can we hear them?
For friends whose native language is not English, talk to me in any language = hablame en cualquier idioma. I most certainly will not understand much of what you are saying, but it’s good to hear other languages, particularly in 2019, the International Year of Indigenous Languages. I can say ‘good morning’ and ‘thank you’ in Ayöök and Zapateco, but I don’t know where to begin in Paiute.
