Autoglossia
Digital EP
8 minutes

I take the title of this EP to mean ‘self-language’ or ‘speaking to/through oneself’. To make it, I used software by Rodrigo Constanzo called C-C-Combine. This software stores a bank of samples of my voice, recorded over many years on my iphone. When I sing into the software, it automatically tries to match my live voice to these stored recordings, resulting in a jumble of sounds and syllables that sometimes sound a bit weirdly linguistic. I then orchestrated the results using MIDI instruments and stuff I had to hand, like a stylophone.

Made for Jessie Marino's Weekend EP project, which gives artists 72 hours to make an EP, before it is then released on bandcamp.
