YES, I DO teach music technology and live-looping over the internets, so if you want to learn how to do this stuff, or how to make your own tracks, send me a line, and check out my teaching page: http://kyrstynpixton.com/#music-produ...
I also record vox for producers and studios from home, as an all-in-one studio, vocal stem and processing creation station. So let me know if you want vocals ;)
This is one of my favorite songs of all time and I've been dying to cover it since I first heard it 9 years ago. It was one of those moments, you know the one, where all is jubilant, chattery, or completely Other than then moment that follows. The moment where you hear a few chords, a voice, a combination of sounds that take the breath out of you; a wash of feeling that stops time, your heart, even your life path for a moment. I remember moving towards the window, where only the sky could see me, and listening so.. very.. intently.. as tears welled up and that mysterious something happened which only music can catalyze, only the most heart-felt music. I will always remember it so well. There have been a handful, perhaps an armful of moments like that one in my life, and they are as precious to me as, well, there is no comparison for that kind of preciousness, really, is there? As any epiphany, any awakening, any soul-spark that lights a un-explainable fire within you. Imogen Heap will always be such a heroine for me, and so many other people. And now she's inventing magic gloves!? (They have infinite midi-mapping in-movement possibilities.. I can't wait!)
Update: A lot of people have been asking how this is done, so here is what I used: Ableton Live's Vocoder, with 3 effects on the vocal track: Reverb with about 5 seconds tail at 13 % wetness, ableton's "atmosphazer" with the phaser turned off and delay decreased (my favorite go-to ;) and a little bit of Waves vocal-doubling. Here's the tutorial I used to get my vocoder up and running: Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNTckW... Part 2: http://youtu.be/Mniov6IrCKY
Dubspot is "spot"-on with their tutorials, always really helpful ;) Try it out and have fun!
