I recorded my voice parts through a vintage microphone that I got at a yard sale at Evergreen State College in the 70s and have just now found a cable for. Hey, I got around to it eventually!
Most of the other sounds in this song were generated by making my Mac's text-to-speech feature "say" various series of piled up and repeated consonants and vowels. Doing that creates some interesting rhythms, and timing them to rough bar lengths in Peak and putting them into Live to further beat slice made some fun patterns.
It's a strange little experiment, but I like it.
Thanks for listening - Enjoy!
Here is the vintage mic, tastefully set off by "Squirrel In Canoe."
