"We Real Cool" by Gwendolyn Brooks by Lezet
this album was recorded by using a typing computer keyboard as the sound-delivering device where each letter is represented by a distinct note.
At times, the nature of the revealed melody called for more of a strictly typist approach, while at others the individual tracks necessitated changes in pitch,melody,dynamics to avoid sounding sternly kinda typist.
The relation between typing machines and music keyboards fascinated me since I was a kid and this was a way of paying homage to this childhood fascination of mine.
Plus I had tons of things to type out while at the University and the arrhythmic nature of the sounds made while typing galvanised me into exploring the abovementioned relation.
Typists:Marijana Tanaskovic (tracks 2&27), Igor Jovanovic (all track except tracks2&27)
