Greg McLeod MB-LP Vinyl Record
I had the idea to write a set of songs specifically for and about each of the 16 Myers-Briggs Types, so I made everyone I know take a version of the test and discussed their results with them. Once I had around eighty people, several people I knew for each type, I started researching what aspects of music those types responded to most. I matched the types up with multi-instrumental loops I'd written based on their preferences in terms of lyrical style, tempo, and harmonic and rhythmic complexity. I then wrote lyrics based on things I noticed people of each type had in common: hopes, fears, or attitudes they shared. I did further research in online communities where people of a given type discussed things they enjoyed or struggled with. In some cases, I also tried to mimic their style of expression by using literary techniques and phrases they seemed to use more often than others. I drew further inspiration from specific songs and poems those types cited as favourites. I sing and play guitar, violin, bass, drums, trombone, and keys; these songs are performed live by recording a loop of an instrument and moving on to the next, then turning the loops on and off while I sing over them. The style varies from sung vocals and rock instrumentation to more spoken, rap-influenced vocals, an eclectic mix similar to Beck, Tune-Yards, or the Streets. MB-LP, more than most albums, is meant to be eclectic. You probably won't even like your own type's song the best. People tend to find other types more intriguing than their own, since other perspectives can offer insights people of the same type wouldn't have considered. What this record is about-and something I learned repeatedly working on this project-is that people approach life in many different ways. Truly trying to understand how other people see the world can make you more accepting and more equipped to cope with new problems and challenges.
