ModelTalker Music Method Movies by Lee Abramson

Despite his disability of being wheelchair-bound with ALS, Lee has managed to create music using a unique, painstaking method. Utilizing a computer and music notation software he is able to compose using one finger and a touch pad. Lee is no longer able to sing because of diminished lung capacity, but has found a way to “sing” using his own voice with the ModelTalker voice synthesizer. This technology gives Lee a bionic voice that can speak more quickly than nature will allow, and sing impossibly high and low notes.

Here's how I do what I do:
1 Phonetic Spelling
2 ModelTalker Audio Capture
3 Finder to Logic Pro
4 Chopping Audio 
5 Samples to Vocoder MIDI Events
6 Black Girl (Where Did you Sleep Last Night)
