PART 1 - "Acid Remark"

PART 2 - "The Light's Gone Off"




"Human Music came from an attempt to purge myself from the inherent discomfort I feel with the human voice, specifically my own. I felt if I could present the voice and its various uses and extremes it would contextualise my own vocal performances, perhaps validate them in some way. I didn't completely succeed, but then perhaps the process itself was a success of some sort. Human Music Parts 1 and 2 are mixes featuring a capella performances from various cultures and traditions. The idea was to have everything rub together; sacred and profane, sublime and silly, to create something new. With that in mind, the two media players can be used on their own, or in tandem - at any point - to create a third, transient mix."
