Disquiet Junto 0375 Despite Yourself

The Junto this week asks for "a piece of music that sounds as unlike you as you can accomplish."

I considered a couple of options before settling on the idea of reimagining a song I wrote last year.

'Closer to Knowing' was inspired by the dream mentioned in the lyrics, as well as a couple of blog posts by women I know.

To get my vocals to sound unlike my voice, I've pitched them up an octave.

It's interesting that it doesn't quite sound female, more like a man pretending to be a woman -- reminding me of Eric Idle in Monty Python films.

Below is the demo version of the song that I recorded last year.
