hello everybody, I just joined this forum. I love shpongle.
I have a question concerning their samples of spoken words that they use sometimes. I’m a musician myself , very interested in this kind of thing, but coming more from the acoustic side of music, so I don’t have any experience with it.
I know steve reich used his samples of spoken words in “different trains” without changing their pitch (“as they spoke, so I wrote”). the spoken words in shpongle’s works (I’m thinking especially about the “nothing lasts…”-cd) are very “processed”, use a lot of effects to make them fit to the music - which they do fantastically. does anybody know how they do it? what kind of effects do they use? do they alter the pitch? “melodine” maybe (or what’s the program’s name?)
your help is very appreciated!
