Markheim’s Last Words

Time, as Robert Louis Stevenson says in Markheim, has become instant and momentous, and I’ve run out of it to put the final cut of my audio version up today. RLS is up there somewhere laughing at me, fag in hand: to do the story justice, sound-effect wise, is a massive job, given the amount of aural cues he scattered through the text. I’ve made a start, having downloaded twenty or so sounds so far, and recorded a few of my own, but it’ll take a couple of weeks.
In the meantime, I had hoped to at least put up the unfurnished version. Unfortunately, that was so massive it was going to take about forever to upload, so it’ll go up another day.
However, I have managed to upload the final version of Hyde’s Last Words, my own take on what Dr Jekyll’s dark side might have to say for himself. Utterson, Lanyon, and Jekyll himself get to add their voices to Stevenson’s multi-layered narrative: why not Eddy?
