I Could Have Been a Banker02


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This was inspired by a poetry and music workshop with e.g. Poetry and 4.33 Experimental Music Group. It's the first track I've made with vocals of a pre-written text. I recorded the vocals and then selected the loops and made the sound bed.
I've done other instrumental tracks. Made about half a dozen, so I'm still learning how to tweak things and I haven't got great speakers for listening to playback to check production values. Can anyone suggest a wireless or bluetooth headset that gives good sound with Macs?

Hushed tones
A slice of life. Really enjoyed it, the topic, the affected (not effected) delivery, the repetition of key phrases. A unique addition to the MJ archive.
Check out my latest song called UnerSpizm
