OMERTA

Although, at least for the time being, I'll continue to do vocals live, as far as studio work is concerned, now that Dyad is out there, I've decided to just focus on the producing, the writing and the playing roles.

I've noticed you haven't been doing as many vocals on the last few Whitehouse albums, so I'm not too surprised... not doing any studio vocals anymore due to artistic reasons, or are their physical reasons as well (problems with vocal chords)? It really amazes me that you've sung on so many albums and at live shows, I don't know how you do it... my own vocal chords would never be able to take that kind of wear and tear.

That's a pity, although as sypha says, it's been coming for a while. One of the things that stood out the most when I saw you in Melbourne was that the vocals was pretty much all YOU, and very little in the way of effects, etc.
As much as I enjoy Philip's voice and style, it's always seemed to me to work most effectively in tandem with someone else. As Whitehouse changes more and more (and again, IMHO, for the better) perhaps vocals won't hold the same importance in the future.

Since you're going to be re-releasing material on vinyl, have you given any thought to putting out a quadrophonic album? In quadnaural sound (Vocals or not)? Love/fear your stuff, best wishes.

Thanks for all your comments... there are no real physical reasons, it's a case of reaching a point where everything's been said for me through that mode of personal expression (hence the Dyad reference!) - and right now there's plenty to do and say in lots of other new ways.

Exciting times, especially when an artist whose work I enjoy is constantly developing and changing--a student of their own creativity/themselves, always learning.
