I am recording an LP while in quarantine. Nothing would make me happier than to hear a community of voices coming together on these recordings. Let’s create something beautiful together.
- Your phone
- A pair of earbuds
- A borrowed phone (or computer/iPad)
- On the borrowed phone, listen (with headphones) to the audio clip below.
- Record your singing using the voice memo app on your phone. Try to be in a really quiet place, please! See the FAQ for how to make the audio even cleaner.
- Repeat this process with each audio clip.
- Email or text the voice memos to me at [email protected] or 954.928.6167. Send no later than MAY 8.
Whenever you hear my voice doubled, that is the part you sing.
Follow along and sing the same notes you hear the doubled voices singing.
YES! That would be amazing and wonderful and oh so beautiful!
Noooope! If you prefer to jump in on just one or two songs, that’s a-okay with me. Whatever you are comfortable with!
The first and the third ones. (The “Eh” part and the “Ooh…adorn your life with stories like the rainbow and then sit for a while and be” part).
I’m glad you asked, because this will make my life easier! To make the audio even cleaner, attach earbuds to your phone as well and sing into the microphone of those headphones. The idea is to reduce background noise as much as possible.
Another thing you can do to increase quality is to send the files to me via email (rather than text). Sometimes texting compresses files, which reduces quality. If you email the files, we avoid that risk.
If you want to use a different recording device, that’s great. As long as you are able to email or text me the files of you singing, I’m happy.
Send me your recordings by MAY 8. After that day, I will mix, master, and send the album out to Spotify/Apple Music/etc.
If you have an iPhone, here’s what you do. After you record, the file will go into your Voice Memos. Click the three dots in the lower left corner of the file. Click ‘share’. Click ‘Messages’. Enter my phone number in the “To” section.
I wanted to create something that is a direct reaction to the pandemic. Something that speaks to the moment. I also want it to be as collective and collaborative as possible. Bringing us together even while we are in isolation.
