The Day Craft – on air broadcast

I’m delighted to share that my spoken word recording of The Day Craft has been broadcast by Antipodean SF.

Th. e poem comes in at around the 3 minute mark, but do have a listen to the reading by Eugen M. Bacon, as well.

Hope you enjoy the poem and my thanks to Ion and the crew at Antipodean SF.

  1. Just finished listening. The piano accompaniment makes your poem even more special. I’m not sure if you’ve ever watched, “To Kill a Mockingbird” from the 60’s with Gregory Peck, but it has that same kind of enhancement in some of the scenes. Congratulations for being part of the podcast and getting your work out there so people can experience your magic. P.S. I started reading The New Asylum tonight. I wanted to be in the right frame of mind (i.e. balanced lol) to read it. Am halfway through. Will write a review when finished. I remember some of them from when I first started reading you on WP.

  2. This is awesome, Frank. Congratulations to you both!
    Incidentally, your suggestion that I record some of my poems for the market has taken on a life of it’s own. It’s going to take a little while in the making, but after the holidays, a whole bunch of my husband’s teaching colleagues are going to record a poem each. It should be really interesting as they are from a number of different countries, both European and African. Some may even be recorded in translation to their home languages too. Very exciting. đŸ™‚ Thanks again for the suggestion!

    • It’s marvelous knowing a few folk are having a listen, Liz.

      So glad you’re enjoying them.

      I’ve been thinking a lot about what works to make sufficient vocal differences between (say) narrator voice and character voices. It’s interesting to contemplate and I’ll probabaly incorporate some discussion in workshops if I get to do some next year.

      • Each character voice is so real in the war poems, I feel as if I am standing right there next to him. You’re right about the vocal differences between narrator voice and character voices. I would be very interested in that discussion.
