Format: MP3 Music
Lee Abramson
The Bionic Mouth

While some listeners may find the ModelTalker vocal system to be an unnecessary focal point in the music itself (it has a very distinct sound), it largely blends into the overall mix after a few listens, and is surprisingly effective at getting Abramson’s point across despite the occasional indecipherability of the lyrics themselves. And when taken in tandem with the music on The Bionic Mouth, it becomes inseparable to the overall experience of the album.

To tell the truth, one likely might not know the difference upon first listen, as Abramson’s compositions are quirky and eclectic enough to come off as intentionally over-digital, a type of bedroom electro-pop outing steeped in a lo-fi aesthetic and sporting a Stephen Hawking-esque vocoder on top of it all.

This vocoder (more accurately a ModelTalker vocal synthesizer) is one of the album’s more memorable aspects, and is the method by which Abramson is still able to sing for the record, becoming in effect the bionic aspect of The Bionic Mouth. A vocal synthesizer software that uses segments of recorded speech to emulate the spoken word for those losing their voice due to ALS, Abramson utilizes ModelTalker to pepper The Bionic Mouth’s eleven tracks with vocal expression that sounds both organic and abstract at once, lending the album a certain futuristic quality that escapes mere novelty (Abramson’s website also reports that he may be the first musician to ever use the ModelTalker for music purposes).
