What version of Studio Artist do you own?
How do you use Studio Artist?
I'm a poet exploring using visual work to accompany recitals of my poetry. I'm deliberately using still images, not movement; the emphasis is always on the words. You can catch some of the results on my iTunes podcast, "seen, heard) poetry". I am not a sophisticated user of the product.

Hi Dylan, just visiting your website listening to your poems. For me sounds like you have a very british accent. Are you, or are you Belgian.

Simple nice site by the way.

I am indeed Brit, living in Belgium.

Thanks for the comment on my site. That front is very very new. I built it in iWeb, which is part of Apple's iLife suite. Unfortunately, iWeb is insufficient, so I'm going to have to switch to some other software soon, so the appearence may change more that I'd like.

If you're interested, there's a lot more poems if you click on "Arts & Ego". That takes you to my site's previous content. A good number of the poems are less .... erm ... middle-aged.

pity u have to ad visuals when you just want to put music up!..well , thats how i see it.not a bad little package tho!

I prepared my podcasts in GarageBand, and exported them to iWeb. If you're going down the same route, the GarageBand podcasts don't have to have visuals, do they? Can't you can simply not fill in the podcast track? Admittedly, I specifically want to combine visuals with poetry, so I might well have missed something.

Thanks for the comment on my poetry. It's not my best work by a long shot, though it is recent. I seeing what I can do before I try and set any of my better work.

I'm turning the fact that I can't sing to my advantage! It's another part of the way I like to set my poetry (and sometimes other peoples' poetry). I made that music purely for the fun of it.

I wish I could make sensible comments on other peoples' artwork here, but my visual arts background is photography only. I know little about the place Studio Artist came from, where people using Studio Artist can go. When I've properly explored the product, and explored its context, then, I hope, I'll be able to make sensible comment.

So apologies for not returning comments on peoples' work.

i'm a poet as well although video has taken over. that's interesting about the still images, i was wondering why you didn't animate them.

It's simple: I know photography, I don't know video.

When I started writing poetry properly, I found strict form very useful to keep a poem in shape while I experimented with linguistic expression. I'm now confident enough in poetry to have moved into modernism, well beyond normal language structures.

But using imagery with poetry is new to me. Restricting myself to still images is equivalent to restricting myself to a poetic form; it enables me to produce something effective, I hope, whilst I explore. The form itself keeps a work in shape whilst I struggle to express.

And, anyway, unless done carefully, animation of poems distracts and detracts from the poetry. Consider those animations of Billy Collins poetry: the animations were excellent, but one key thing they did was to reduce the impact of the poetry itself, of the recited word. It's clearly not easy to combine vision and poetry, and I'm not ready to explore quite yet.

I suspect the solution may be to follow the approach of composers setting lied; set the second rate stuff so something significant can be added by the music. I'm not sure what that says about my own poetry, given I've set it myself!

It must be possible and I have searched all over for the way to do this.I'm in Paint Synthesiser Classic with Mosaic - Flat with Text as the preset. Thank you! IanSee More
