Matt Mower's Favorite tracks on alonetone

Savagery 1 (feat Sister S.)

Uploaded .

I told the good Sister that I wanted to try using vocals in a track and she offered to do me some abstract, stylized, vocals that I could play with and this little number is the result.

Working with wet (pre-effected) vocals was a bit of a challenge at first but with some experimentation I found a sound that they could settle into building a beat with my beloved Stylus RMX and adding in some ambience with Omnisphere.

The rest is the vocals and a clock sample both treated by The Finger which I play on my keyboard. I had to touch up the MIDI performance a little because at 160bpm there isn’t much time to find the right key for the effect you want.

Once I got going I had a lot of fun building this track and I think it came together nicely. I’ll certainly be looking to do more with vocals in the future!

Many thanks to @SisterSavage for coming up with the goods for me!

THIS IS SICK. Thanks for the props on my new stuff, too. I got the glitched out sounds by time stretching some old woman talking and offsetting multiple takes of the same clip. Thanks again.

it's an entirely different world playing with vocals isn't it? Love what you did. Seems Sister Savage is one of the most sought after vocalists on here. hehe.

Very clever indeed, I like what you have done with the sister's voice. Great all round sound.

As I said in Campfire chat, you have successfully reproduced aural hallucinations, my friend!
