I would have preferred to record my own reading of the story so that I could add my own intonation and feeling to the work. However, the juxtaposition of the serious voice with the music in the background may work just as well.
The best readings I found unfortunately included music in the background, which would ruin the effect I wanted to add. The one shown above was the best silent reading I could find.
I had initially wanted to use the entire poem, but found the content of the narration to be far to dark to alleviate with a silly saxophone. Thus, I had to narrow the poem down to it's least dark stanzas.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
