About the music


The music contains no instruments- everything you hear was made using only my voice and basic effects/editing techniques. I use pitch-shift to drop my voice down for bass lines, but otherwise there is no pitch correction involved. Each song contains anywhere between 30-50 layers of vocals and take as many hours to complete over several months. I worked on many songs at once as inspiration struck and time allowed.

The goal was to complete the entire catalog of original Smiths songs by the end of 2010. It was one of the most challenging experiences of my life and I am thrilled to say that I completed my goal- ahead of schedule! This would have been a daunting project just for the music alone, but I was also fitting the music time in around parenting, working, commuting, etc. It was a true labor of love to give up every ounce of free time for a year but it was the best thing I've ever done. Thank you for visiting my personal tribute to The Smiths and for cheering me on.

Diani & Devine Meet The Apocalypse

Greetings everyone,

I have some exciting news to share! My music will be in the feature film Diani & Devine Meet The Apocalypse and they are kickstarting their funding until Friday Nov 22, 9:00pm PST. The movie features actors from Rocky Horror Picture Show, Deep Space Nine, Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Legend of Korra.


If you don't own a digital copy of The Smiths Project, now's the best time ever! There's a $65 Smiths Project backer level where you can get the 71-track digital download of The Smiths Project PLUS both of Diani and Devine's movies & more. I've lost track of how many times I've watched their first movie, The Selling. So good!


If you can, please be a last-minute hero and help support indie art! There are also some great add-ons like their Huck Fin (Robotic Edition) book and signed pictures of Barry Bostwick & other cast members which could make for great holiday gifts.


A big thank you to everyone who has already backed the project. <3

Happy Birthday, Morrissey!


Dear Morrissey,

I often wonder what you think of me... but surely you know how much love I have for you. I hope our paths cross one day so that I can tell you in person.
Warm wishes for you on your birthday today and continued love the other 364 days of the year.

XOXO

Janice
