The Happiness Project by Charles Spearin


This is one of the strangest yet coolest concept albums I have listened to. It takes recordings of people describing what happiness is to them, then plays music over those people speaking in their exact tone and pitch. The opening song is just "Mrs. Morris" and a saxophone, but as the album progresses, soft drums and strings and piano and other brass joins in. This produces a weird, new agey, and distinctly jazzy sound. The track "Ondine" is my favorite, and the reprise of "Mrs. Morris." This album is certainly different than anything you will have heard before, but it's sweet and uplifting too.
