Two years ago I recorded 11 "a cappella" lullabies in Italian for a project that never saw the light of day and remained dormant in my hard disk.
Recently, while studying
Metasynth 6, I found them and thought I could mangle them beyond recognition with it.
All of them were played in reverse, so that they were now sung in a new language called "Nailati"!!! And from there I started time-stretching, pitch-shifting and using all sorts of audio-editing.
At first I thought to leave them "a cappella" but then I started creating arrangements using
Omnisphere, Trilian, Keyscape and/or my Kurzweil digital piano.
Because the general character of these "Nailati" songs sounded quite exotic to my ears, I thought to pay tribute to a famous album published in 1987 by Nonesuch Records with a similar title.
The cover was painted with Metasynth!
