Cast of Wonders #164
Amicae Aeternum, by Ellen Klages (narration, music, engineering)
April 19th, 2015. After Isis' slam-dunk narration of "Tradition," by L.M. Ball, for Pseudopod, she was asked by Marguerite Kenner, the Editor and host of Cast of Wonders, to read for the story "Amicae Aeternum," by Ellen Klages. Rikki wound up narrating, Isis performed the voice of "Cory," and Fiona Van Verth ("Princess Scientist") performed the voice of "Anna."
There were four lines of a lullaby that were written in the text, so Rikki wrote music for the girls to sing. So he audio engineered the project, and recorded the song "I See the Moon" for the episode.
Cast of Wonders is a Parsec Award winning young adult short audio fiction magazine.
I See the Moon (music)
This is a song that was inspired by and written for the audio production of the short story "Amicae Aeternum" by Ellen Klages. The words are by Ellen Klages and make up four lines of the actual text. Isis LaCoste, who is the vocalist in this version of the song was also cast to read the part of "Cory," the protagonist of the tale. You can hear the story at the young adult audio fiction magazine, Cast of Wonders, and the full text can be read at TOR.com.
I see the moon, the moon sees me
the moon sees the somebody I want to see
God bless the moon, and god bless me
God bless the somebody I want to see

Tradition (narration by Isis)
On December 24th, 2014, another narration for Pseudopod was released. The story is called Tradition, by L.M. Ball. Just after submitting the narration of Party at the Witch House, Rikki was sent another text to be released for Christmas. The thing was, the point of view was that of a child. He asked Isis if she would be interested in narrating this story for Pseudopod, and she was all over it. We submitted this surprise to the Editor, and it was very favourably regarded.

Eclipse Project: Who Taught the Birds to Sing (music)
On November 8th, 2013, the electronic and ambient collaboration, the Eclipse Project, with whom I will also be collaborating, released Who Taught the Birds to Sing. Musician and director, Beau Lukes, asked if I could help out with a few details for their latest song. I recorded three children for the project, and Beau gratefully and delightfully mixed my recording into the song.
