Class #11 Notes

Radiohead

Optimistic - song (kid A album)
  • Tom (soprano?) loves dry vocals but brings out reverb in the chorus
  • vocals, drums,  lead guitar & bass guitar; synths
  • great sound on the toms; snare joins the vocals at the chorus
  • warm jazz-like drum tone
  • sounds like a jam session brought into a multi-tracked studio recording session with various sound and accompanying vocal harmonies & aftereffects (like space echo)
  • very sonic & covers a full hearing spectrum
  • repeating phrases; alot of push & pull (cohesive band)
  • “phrygian” sound:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phrygian_dominant_scale
