Letters jPEG Invisible
It is hard to describe the feeling of receiving a handwritten letter. There is something so personal and intimate about it that you lose in the digital world. The texture of the paper, the stamps and the unique stylings of each word are only a few of the elements that attract me to the art of letters. It’s this art that I tried to capture in this song.
I used my homemade banjo to form the main riff and added the percussive element using a typewriter and bells. I then added my favourite instrument, the melodica and plugged my voice into a reverb pedal and sung the first thing that came into my mind.
