I wrote these lyrics at work on a scrap of paper back on February 6th. They've been waiting for my Muse to be inspired. Well, she jumped on an idea this morning as I loaded up my "Live" Buzz setup project. How about doing a pseudo-acapella where the vocals trigger a synth? Yeah, that would be fun, right?
So I took the idea & ran with it. Using WDE;s amazing Note Detector Machine (which detects the notes of an incoming audio signal & then sends that data as MIDI Note On messages to any Buzz Machine assigned to receive the MIDI information), I quickly experimented with using my voice to trigger one of HG Fortune's wonderful VSTi's (the great Fortune Cookie 2012). Satisfied with the results, I hit record and began to sing the lyrics. This was fun. Bonus points if you can answer the riddle-like puns embedded in the lyrics (there's four of them).
(p.s.: yes, I know it's short!)
