Yesterday I filmed stuff that was on my dining table. The sun was streaming through the window onto it and I had in mind the words I wrote yesterday in response to “yellow sky draped itself over everything lazily”. This evening I played around with that footage in Adobe Premiere Pro 6 but am not satisfied with it. I recorded myself saying the poem – eight takes – all with different tones. I chose the first one. It’s interesting how a tone can change the feel of something. I tried to rid my voice of emotion in one of the takes and it sounded like a child learning to read but uninterested in the task.
