Playing tracks by
Bell Labs 1936, Tonto’s Expanding Head Band, Brian Eno, Boards of Canada, Air and more.
Being a sci-fi geek & an electronic music dork, it makes sense that I would like songs with vocoders. I like the inhuman, robot-like sound.
I was playing some Boards of Canada recently & came across the song "In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country." I love the use of the vocoder in that tune.So I set out to find enough vocoder tunes for a mix. The result is "Vox Electronix".
The vocoder is used in many of the tracks in this mix, but I'm not exactly sure which ones are vocoder & which ones are auto-tune and which ones are just clever vocal manipulation. So don't everyone go crazy saying "hey that's not a flippin' vocoder!", I was just going for a certain sound, a certain feel.
This was a fun mix to put together, discovering new tunes(tonto's expanding head band) & revisiting old favorites(O Superman). I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making.
