World renowned and 4 times CARA award winning vocal pop band Basix (www.basix.dk) performing the game character GLaDOS' end song from the video game Portal (www.thinkwithportals.com) from Valve Software. All sounds originated from the human voice - SEE POST SCRIPT BELOW.
'Still Alive' written by Jonathan Coulton (www.jonathancoulton.com)
Basix' version is mixed my Bill Hare (www.dyz.com)
Portal 2 release: April 2011
There has been a lot of talk about whether or not this track really IS performed by voices.
It is. However, like many people are noticing: 'processors' are being used. Big time.
Autotune is being used on the lead singer, because we wanted to create a sound that somewhat matches the GLaDOS computervoice.
Reverbs, delays, and distortion was used aswell.
And yes, we think processing IS allowed, even if what we do is a cappella.
We use the same processors as any other band, nothing new, or weird there. :-)
We do realize that many a cappella fans prefere a "purer" sound, with no effects, - which we completely understand, and respect.
We are simply offering a different kind of a cappella.
There is plenty of room for all kinds of a cappella, and we too listen to all kinds of a cappella ourselves.
We use the same processors, when performing live, - as we have specialized in singing and producing sounds that works well with the processors.
We havent actually tried using the autotune live, though.... there are a lot of tech-issues connected to that ('spilling' - where one mic will pick up sounds from the neighboring mics, is a problem) - but all other processors from this track we use live aswell.
Whenever we can (small enough venue) - we like to add a song or 2 with NO tech at all, not even mics.
