Mike Tamburo creates a dense layer of processed vocal toning and chants. Otherworldly and Cathartic.


I created these pieces this past February as an act of sound healing for myself. The process of creating and recording this allowed for one of the greatest emotional releases of my lifetime. I recorded this in my mother's basement in the same spot I did a lot of my early recordings as a teenager. I was in a place in my life where I had so much emotion I needed to release and work through. I had to go home and cry to my mother and I had to start singing. Singing was the medicine I needed. I set up my effects, looper, recorder and microphone and I just started toning and creating layer after layer of my voice. It was as if I were crying and howling in tune. By the end of each song cycle my heart had grown in some way.
This was one of those records that comes when you have to figure out a new way to love yourself. Healing is a creative act. Grateful to be on this journey with you.
