Given how much I tend to chime in on the music threads, I suppose it's my turn
So, I find I often like music with significant manipulation being done to the vocals.
This can range from barely recognizable mangling like the remix of Nine Inch Nails' Gave Up
on Fixed, to chopping(Fractured - Between the Lines
), to weird pitch-shifting(dDamage - One to Hate
), to comparatively subtle stuff like on Sunday Munich's Smallest Tragedy
. Don't read too much into the examples. Style of music isn't terribly important, I just don't generally get much pop.
There's obviously a fair bit of room for interpretation, so a couple of things I'm not
* Wholesale application of some filter. Underworld(Vocoder): no. T-Pain(Auto-Tune): no. Ke$ha comes close on Blah Blah Blah
, but her producers/manufacturers are still being conservative in my estimation.
* People capable of vocal acrobatics all on their own, like Liz Fraser, Diamanda Galás and Beardyman(I would so go to this tour). They're amazing, but don't fit here.
I'm aware of this previous question
but most responses seem to fall into these two bins.
What's interesting to me is the active
application of effects to make people's voices do things they probably never should have, sometimes turning them into just another "instrument" in the composition.
Your job is to point me at more stuff that I ideally don't already know about. Go to it.
