Fascinating. In a voyeuristic kind of way.

Hi Speck and thanks for this. I like messing about with vocoder effects, and I’m a big Kraftwerk/electro-pop fan. I wanted to do a conceptual piece and hit on the idea of using a bank statement. I thought this idea might resonate in these financially challenging times. Listening to the piece again, I think there’s room for improvement on the vocal delivery, and so I’m tempted to re-record it. Would be interested to hear any tips/advice you might have? Thanks again for the review! EDIT: Have uploaded a new version entitled “Statment of Account”.

I like this because A) it tells a story with just numbers, and B) it’s a very personal story - most people will tell you all about their sex life before they’d read you their statement of account. As far as the vocal delivery goes - I like sound manipulations of any kind, the only ‘rule’ I have is if I use words in a mix I have to be able to understand them (unless I’m just using them for the nature of their sound) and I had no trouble understanding these.

Hi Speck and thanks for this. Excellent—the reasons you gave for liking are the reasons I had for doing! Listening to this first version again, I thought the words could be a bit clearer. I decided to rework the whole thing using two distinct voice effects, panned left & right, and with some synth sounds to fill it up. I posted this as “Statment of Account”. The synth and drum beats were thrown together quickly—I was more interested in doing the vocals. I wonder if the subject matter might make this track worth developing for a larger audience?
