about

This is a collection of 27 tracks of Dave Migman's Spoken Word. About it's construction Dave says:

"Each backing track was composed on his iPad, using Garageband, Figure, Fourier Touch, Thor keyboard and Giant Isopod (for frequency textures). Tracks were all composed in Garageband on the iPad, but not using the measure facility, rather VR instruments were played live and recorded as played. Some sections were cut and repeated, depending on time. I hasten to add that the VR instruments that GB offers (I used the orchestral instruments) are very easy to use and I'm fairly certain a monkey could extract a half-decent tune from them. However there is something very instinctual about the iPad's touchscreen instruments: the way their tone varies under pressure feels kind of artificially natural... if that makes sense! I think that, while not perfect, these instruments are versatile and have a function in their own right. I still prefer to blast it out with my little real guitar but my musical capabilities are limited. To be a real musician you have to devote your life to music and learning music. I'm a writer."

Migman's major concern has always been the lyrics. Here then is a collection of muse that jostles between the dark and the light, caustic and caring, at times severe, at times laced with undercurrents of biting, black humour (such as on Summons).
