Tape Choir

INFINITE VOX

The Tape Choir was a project to attempt to recreate the famous vocal choir pad sound from 10cc's 'I'm Not In Love'. This particular sound is notorious in music production circles, owning to the laborious lengths the producers took to create it :  3 male vocalists stood around a single valve mic, and each sang the same note in unison, holding it for as long as they were able.

This strenuous process was repeated 16 times for each note (due to the limitations of a 16 track tape machine), then bounced down to a single track for each of the 13 notes in the chromatic scale. Each of these notes was a tape loop, and so was looping out of sync with every other notes, producing this 'infinite' choir sound, which could be controlled by the mixing desk, by fading up a single note per channel.   

We took the principles of this process - 3 male singers singing notes ( 23 notes in total) in unison, over and over - taking the resulting notes and then combining them into a single audio file per key, which can now be played via the sampler keyboard. The sampe start time is randomised to simulate the out of sync nature of each individual notes loop.
