Making music out of human speech
GARETH BRANWYN. Boing Boing, 2:20 PM SUN SEP 11, 2022

I’ve written about the work of artist and composer, Noah Wall, on Boing Boing before (here and here). In his latest project, Speech Patterns, Noah derives music from the rhythm, tone, and timbre of the human voice using source material including the voices of Octavia Butler, Michel Foucault, a cattle auctioneer, people speaking in tongues, and ASMR.

Each limited edition LP and cassette features hand-stamped cover art using shapes derived from Speech Patterns notation.
