    Loz you may get a kick out of this

    blurb from the site by the author
    "Here is a remake of the "Thriller" song that I've entirely recorded with my own voice, using 64 acappella tracks. There is therefore no instrument, synthétizer, beatbox, or even to sampler, but only the sound of my voice livened up with Reverb and slight Chorus on certain tracks. Regarding looping parts, Ive simply used the « looping » technique. Moreover, in the whole piece (which contains several thousand notes), I transposed 8 notes, which were impossible for me to sing in high-pitched . Because of my tessiture, I also must have resigned myself to sing certain parts in head voice, more particularly on the track corresponding to Michael Jacksons solo vocal.

    Ive accomplished this non-commercial project at home only with a mobile PC, microphone, headphones and webcam - in nearly 350 hours. Its just an artistic challenge, accomplished during my hours of free time, whose purpose is to make smile my close circle and the internauts. Nonetheless, Ill be happy to record in professional studio, original songs with this technique, if a label was nearly interested to work with me on a SP or LP entirely based on this innovative concept of « Massively Multitracks A'cappella »."
  2. F*ck, the amount of work involved in that makes my brain bleed just thinking about it. Pretty accurate except the craptastic lead, too. Joysus.
  3. +1 A lot of time and patience required to do that. Only thing that detracted from it was when he came in with the lead vocal...a little cringeworthy...but still, pretty amazing :)
  4. 64 versions of the same guy....who can't sing :?

    Nah the non-lead parts were good, he just needs that lead vocal to be someone else....who can sing.
  5. that's what happens when a scrawny white guy tries to sing like a soulful black guy.

    it was totally UNREAL until the lead vocal came in
