I have been wondering (for a year!) about a song I heard in July 2015 on the radio in the Gdansk, Poland area. I have no other details except the following description of the way it sounded:

The lyrics were sung by dozens of different voices, but not at once; every second or more the voice of the singer changed, but very naturally and gradually, into another's. It didn't sound as if many singers were involved, though, but as if the one voice has been carefully edited to change dramatically over the song's duration (to sound as male and female, as different people, as voices with various sound effects and without). English lyrics.

If anyone knows and can point me to this song I would be most grateful. Any additional info about its creation would be welcome.

  • I know you say that you have no details other than the description of how the piece sounded, but are you sure you don't recall the name of the radio station ? or any information about the situation where the radio was playing which might a clue to the station and/or type of music which it plays ? – Angst May 18 '16 at 19:54
  • Were the voices male only, female only, or a combination of male and female? If male only, then I would say the performers were the King’s Singers from England. They are expert in the sort of singing you describe – in fact, they virtually invented this form of singing! So it could be one of their songs. However, if the voices were not all male, then I’m not sure. – George Law May 19 '16 at 8:56
  • Thanks for your comments guys. I don't know which radio station that was; the rough date, and geographical area, are all I know. Actually, I am almost sure it was a Polish language station, in case that's any help. – stakeexchanger May 19 '16 at 18:01
  • @GeorgeLaw, the King's Singers are different in style ("my" song was more modern - not hiphop but as energetic; reminded me of the gentler Prodigy stuff). Also, the Singers sing in choir, whereas "my" song had, as any individual moment, a single voice. Both male and female, as the question states. – stakeexchanger May 19 '16 at 18:13
