I’ve sung Philip Glass quite a few times, his music is a huge influence on me — especially the way he uses the voice as an instrument to blend with the sounds of other instruments. also the overlapping repeated rhythmic patterns, classic Philip Glass stuff.

Using my voice as an instrument in order to build soundscapes (like he does here with the wind instruments and organs in “Music in 12 Parts”) was a huge part of making “Angels on the Slope.” Part 1 was the direct inspiration for my song “This Time Tomorrow,” which I built almost entirely out of three interlocking rhythmic patterns. -- Lisel
