"The Voice of Theseus is my attempt to explore the obstacles I face in processing external sensory information. If I have trouble perceiving reds and greens, if I have trouble hearing certain frequencies, if I don't interpret written language in a standard way, how closely can I experience reality in the way that others experience it? The album asks the listener to question how their unique means of perception and interpretation might differ from that of others. For The Voice of Theseus, I asked two of my favorite vocalists to assist with this experiment. Both Dorian Wood and G.Brenner recorded vocals for me to manipulate throughout the album. If their original audio is Theseus's ship, the changes I make to their voices are like the Athenians replacing each of the original vessel's pieces. And so, how far can these vocals be pushed while still remaining attached to the vocalists' identities? Where lies the separation between the source materials and the objects they're used to create?"
