TUNE NEIL MARCH - Alternatives To Despair (Part Two)
Track 2 from my similarly named EP. It sees me utilising environmental sounds (machinery, sirens, engines etc.) from which I can derive pitch to create harmony that can be juxtaposed against notated instrumental parts to create a unique soundworld in which the sounds of my living and working environment directly influence music and sound. I have also used a combination of wordless voices and synthesized choir to emulate the aura of a Welsh Valleys choir reflecting my Welsh mining heritage.
