LITANY

Not a song - pseudo church music. This is fairly unpleasant to listen to. The idea for this paved the way for creating my "Vocaloid Choir" - the other songs wouldn't exist without this. It is serious and long. Meant to be a sort of full-on piece of ... Conceptual Art?

Don't listen to this first it may put you off everything else. Read the notes (link below)! July 2017 - 18.5 minutes
