Audio Recordings from Listowel Kerry 2010

June 05, 2010 By: Paul O'Mahony Category: 2010, audio podcast

Paul O’Mahony (omaniblog) has recorded six short pieces of audio. They offer a flavour of Listowel Writers’ Week 2010

They are each AudioBoos (max 5 mins):

Bloggers have been on summer holiday in Limerick, staying in UCH

August 16, 2009 By: ana Category: audio podcast, blogs, connections, preparations

We’ve been resting & recovering in Limerick with some Summer Music on the Shannon.

It’s been just like the Riviera. Crowded, hot, exciting and exhausting…

We’ll need a holday to recover from living with people from so many countries. Limerick has become a cosmopolitan place. Visitors from Canada, USA, Japan, Norway, UK, Spain, Italy, Kildare, Germany… and so on.

Like any hothouse there has to be a common language. It’s been music.

If you want to find out more about how hot Limerick’s been, try this link – when you have time on your hands.

We look forward to resuming normal service here soon – when we’ve recovered. Rest assured, we’ve been telling them in Limerick all about Kerry.

[One thing for sure, we hope Listowel Writers’ Week 2010 – the 40th festival – will be live streamed – broadcast live on the internet. After what they did in University Concert Hall, it should be possible…?]

Audacity is the key, but Paul’s my name…

June 04, 2009 By: Paul O'Mahony Category: audio podcast, connections, starting up

Oh, I’ve been told what to do:

  • load “Audacity” and you’ll be able to sort out your audio recordings.
  • you’ll be able to edit the audio files, tidy them up, tart them up, put them up…

I’m one of the dimmest learners you’ve ever met:

I struggle with everything. The first day I tried to take in cash from bus drivers in London, I made so many accounting errors, it took the bank to sort my mess out.

The first night I operated the security system in Holloway bus garage, I locked all my colleague’s coats in the time-locked night safe.

The first time I tried to make love, I cocked it up.

So, of course, I can’t figure this out.

Loads of audio recording, made live during session at Writers’ Week 2009, lie dormant.

I rang Patrick Stack and he said I should download “lamelib” for Windows. I think I’ve done that, but I can’t find where it’s gone…

If you ever have difficulty doing something on your computer, and you catch yourself berating yourself, think of me. That should cheer you up.

122 recorded pieces from Listowel Writers’ Week

June 02, 2009 By: Paul O'Mahony Category: audio podcast, participants, photographs, Song

I’ve come away with about 122 digitally recorded pieces. Patrick Stack also has recordings.

Songs, interviews, personal reflections and reports, extracts from readings…

An archive eh…

History, to quote Billy Keane, who told me he thought what we were doing by blogging was recording history …

["Pub Theatre entertainment can be found in some of Listowel’s finest hostelries during July & August. Tuesday & Thursday nights the place to be is John B. Keane’s Bar featuring the inimitable Billy Keane presenting is distinctive one-man comedy show & Lartigue Theatre Company presenting the works of the great playwright including the famous “Letters” series – Letters of a Matchmaker, Letters of a Successful T.D."]

What am I (what are we) to do with them?

I’m no podcaster but I suspect I shall be before I’ve finished with all these recordings. I have no intention of wasting a drop.

Testing – audio blogging

Don’t panic. This is just another demonstration – embedding an audioboo file (a boo) into the blog.
