Dutch producer and composer Arts The Beatdoctor is looking for special voices to incorporate in his new release, scheduled to appear later this year.
After his solo releases Fragments (2006), Transitions (2007) and Progressions(2008), and the group efforts Sound Surroundings and Darker Days with The Q4 in 2010, Arts The Beatdoctor is now working on a new solo record. For this, he is searching for input other than his own, in the form of voice recordings. Anybody willing to record his/her voice can in their recordings. Expect these voices to be filtered, chopped up, reversed, and mangled in other ways.
Since his first releases, Arts The Beatdoctor’s songs have been marked by the unorthodox use of vocals. Whether it is the unusual way of flipping a vocal sample from a dusty record, or the incorporation of vocal talent in a much bigger instrumental arrangement, Arts The Beatdoctor is inspired by the challenge of taking vocals out of their usual context. This project marks the next step in that challenge – working with material beyond his control, and finding its often hidden quality.
The deadline for sending in recordings is February 1st, 2012. For the complete instructions, and to send in a recording, go to www.artsthebeatdoctor.com/sendyourvoice
