(Let me preface this by saying I'm not sure if this breaks any rules, if so I totally understand if this post gets removed. I would very much appreciate if someone could guide me to a suitable subreddit, should it be the case.)
About a year ago I made a post on r/books外围体育投注 about how much I feel reading to each other has become an underrated thing to do, that garnered some attention here. I felt like I should bring an update
I feel the age old tradition of reading to each other has faded away, and I think it's a tragedy. There is something about having someone read or tell you a story. There is this magical combination of the way the story is told, shaped by the tone and tempo if the voice, and your own imagination. The magic is that something happens that would not have occurred if you "simply" read the story yourself. It comes to life in another way, and for many it's less straining on your concentration. Others don't like to read by themselves.
Audio books are a great way to get a similar experience, but to me they lack the feeling that the book is read, in this moment, to you. You miss the facial expressions of the reader, or the gestures that underline certain points.
外围体育投注I personally read very often to my family. Whether that be a night time story for the kids or something more fitting for my wife after we've gone to bed. It's a kind of quality time I wouldn't miss for the world.
外围体育投注Besides storytelling, another big passion of mine - that used to be me my professional occupation - is music. I love finding new and obscure music and especially - sharing it with others.
I've combined those two passions in a hobby of mine, where I do live recordings from passages of books, poems and such, while I at the same time mix music that matches the mood and the progression of the stories I read. It's a hobby that consumes a lot of time, because I insist on doing it all live. I literally put days into the preparation.
外围体育投注I'm not aware of anyone else doing what I do. In essence, I carefully curate a selection of music, that I mix live, while telling the stories. It takes a lot of preparation, and a lot of focus and concentration to pull off.I realize, it may be terribly presumptuous of me too assume any of you would be interested, but I thought I'd share my new YouTube channel, with a selection of the readings I've done. They were all recorded live on-air, in one take, warts and all. No post-production or editing. I've been told they have a kind of intimacy and authenticity that engages the listener for that very same reason.
