New Music(bit) – A Long Way To Go

Part of my ‘musicbits’ series, A Long Way To Go started life out through some vocoder wanderings after hearing Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon vocal harmony meanderings in concert at the end of the year – their song ‘Woods’ is a long time favourite that was fantastic live, with rough voice manipulation artefacts creating a raw and passionate performance. Using vocoder has allowed me to think of my voice more as an instrument to play with and enabled me to feel less self-conscious about tone and lyrics.

The purpose of musicbits is to conclude, share and discuss incomplete/unpurposeful/unperformed composer crumbs. There will be a somewhat steady stream of these throughout 2018. For now, have a listen at the link above…
