The 4th of a series called Voices In My Head.

I'm exploring EastWest’s Voices of Passion, which is a package of 5 different cultural singers. Each singer is recorded singing hundreds of sounds of various notes. There are not words or phrases, though there are sometimes combinations of simplistic syllables or sounds. It's my understanding that the package isn't as much about making words as about being able to create feelings, melodies, harmonies, and soundscapes.

The Play engine that interfaces with Logic utilizes the lower keys of the keyboard to trigger the different inflections of a specific sound when the desired note is played in the voices' scale. In other words, for each left hand key played, there are many variations available for that note/sound with the right hand keys. So, it isn't a matter of cutting up samples in the usual sense. It's a matter of using the keyboard to "play" the singer's individual sounds into being whatever you want it to be. I do this all in the MIDI edit field of Logic. It is a fascinating process.

Comment and critique welcomed.

Interesting project. The first part of the piece made me think of some of Lisa Gerard's work with Dead Can Dance - that idea of the 'voice as an instrument' rather than a 'voice' in the conventional way.

Really cool stuff. I have this library but have not played with it too much. Heavyocity has a new voices library too that is interesting.

I really don't know what you have at hand, but it would be interesting if you could put together a PF cover of the vocal in the tune "Great Gig In The Sky", which is wordless voices. I can hear how this application could/would be perfectly suited for the cover tune mentioned.

Nice work here!
