In my world, Mr. John Boswell aka Melody Sheep, is the only person officially licensed to use auto-tune. His Symphony of Science series hit the internet by storm a couple years back, but I feel his most recent work for PBS Digital Studios is his best yet.
Usually when you encounter auto-tune in the wild it’s on some teeny-bopper radio station playing fluff music with absolutely no redeeming value whatsoever. But in Boswell’s case, he masterfully crafts powerful pieces of music and video that work together to inspire and motivate.
My grandmother had stacks of Bob Ross VHS tapes when I was a kid and I spent many hours of my youth watching Mr. Rogers do his thing on TV. Those were special times. These videos are just the shot in the arm I need some days when I’m running low on inspiration.
