For the past few weeks Miss Hope has been working on D-Tuned, a covers project in which she was commissioned to reinterpret a selection of songs by various artists as her own, while pushing the boundaries of her preconceived limitations of ability and available technology.
“This is one of my favourite songs by one of my favourite bands, The Black Keys, and definitely my favourite of the project so far, not just because it has epic distortion piano bends which make me all gooey inside.”
All instrumentation and programming by Shannon Hope, with all sounds created using the Kawai MP6 Stage Piano (excluding drum loop and vinyl scratch), additional effects through Amplitube (eg. epic distortion piano bend), and recorded in 8 tracks or less using GarageBand (iPad).
Filmed, edited, recorded and mixed by Shannon Hope.
