This one’s just a little rough. The time isn’t completely solid, you can hear a car horn in there somewhere. The ventilation fan in the room is cranking away.
But this vocalist was outside my window last night keeping me awake at about 12:30 am. I happened to have my iPhone sitting next to the bed and I’ve got Recorder on there. So after some trial and error and a bit of patience I recorded the serenade.
I wanted to be annoyed, but it was so pretty and it had perfect “room” quality. Reverberating in the area between buildings like a perfectly designed concert hall.
I got some video of the culprit today. Not the best quality, but once I figure out what I’m doing I’ll have some short video-lets.
In case you’re wondering I did a tiny bit of processing on the “vocals”. The pitches were about a quarter of a whole note outside of the western scales. I adjusted it to fit in the scale (rather than retune the guitar ‘n junk). But I did not adjust any of the timing.
Seeing it in Melodyne, there’s a lot of information in those notes. A lot more than we hear or realize. All the flips, trills, mordents and what not. It’s amazing.
