Pre-order announced for:

Noah WallSpeech Patterns (CKR 015)

Artist and composer Noah Wall presents Speech Patterns, a collection of songs derived from the rhythm, tone, and timbre of human speech. In the artist’s process, standard spoken text (albeit by extraordinary people) is electronically converted into musical data and recast as sonic portraits. Source material includes the voices of Octavia Butler, Michel Foucault, a cattle auctioneer, speaking in tongues, ASMR...

“Paradoxically, this is music that speaks to the nexus of sound and human identity that could only be achieved by machines, equally organic and synthetic.”
- Alan Licht on Speech Patterns

The official release date for Speech Patterns is November 4th, 2022 via Chaikin Records. Download, LP, and cassette will be available for preorder at
