DROITWICH is a new project of Beatboxer and Vocal Sculptor, Jason Singh. Over the past 18 month, Singh has been going back to his roots of electronic experimentation and in which time has developed his own unique system of live looping and processing of the voice and instruments.
He has used the system to process and live sample musicians and sound artists including Shabaka Hutchings (Sons of Kemet), Arun Ghosh, Aleksander Kolkowski, David Coulter and Sebastian Rochford of Polar Bear.
DROITWICH is about taking the focus away from his work as a vocal artist and exploring and developing new technologies and approaches to live performance and recording across a wider range of musical genres.
For his first release, DROITWICH has collaborated with Mandhira de Saram of the Ligeti Quartet (www.ligetiquartet.com
) to produce an EP, entitled Infected Humours. The music was created over two days entirely using the violin as the source instrument and then sampled, processed and recorded live, usually in one or two takes. The result is a sonic world which creates rich and eccentric textures, rhythms and shapes.
