Dear Found Objects Bloggers
We’d like to invite all contributors to take part in the second FO podcast. If you are interested in doing so, the process is quite straightforward. Simply choose an object that you’d like to talk about and, well, talk about it, first making sure that you record what you say using whatever apparatus you have available that does that sort of thing. Please don’t add music or sound effects, this will come later. Ambient noise is okay, but ambient music is not, as it makes it a pain to edit. When you have done this, please send the ensuing mp3 / wav / whatever to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please don’t send little tapes or wax cylinders or CD’s or anything else.
Your featured object is entirely up to you, but please choose something you feel appropriate to the blog and then tell us why you have chosen it, what it is, what it means / represents, where you got it, how you feel about it, etc. Please don’t make your contribution any longer than five minutes or so and please take a breath once in a while, again for editing purposes. It doesn’t have to be three dimensional; it could be a piece of music or a film or TV clip, you just need to explain why you think it fits.
In terms of deadline, it would be great if all contributions could be received by the end of June. If you’re in, please let us know, and quickly, as the number of contributors will need to be limited to ten, so please don’t volunteer unless you’re absolutely sure you’ll be able to do something in the time.
We have interesting plans for your individual contributions, but reserve the right to scrap the whole thing if it turns out to be rubbish!
Look forward to hearing from you,
