Our voices have the amazing capability of producing a wide spectrum of tone and color. Exploring a multitude of vocal techniques while multitrack recording (used to great effect by artists such as Bobby McFerrin), I can sing and record every musical line of a song from the bass line to the melody and harmonies, recording as the sole musician. By manipulating the timbre or quality of my voice, I can create a particular character for each song. Implementing these techniques to a variety of genres, including classical, rock, popular and folk, and by incorporating improvisation, I can make my own interpretation of each piece during my recording process.
