“Gone to Sleep” is a product of this process with Moby and Kelli Scarr and the 16-minute featurette is nothing short of awesome. Moby and Kelli managed to finish their song in under 8 hours so they spent the entire second-day doing a few other versions of the song as well as a Tiny Desk Concert (another series at NPR) for the NPR staff.
Here is Moby’s opinion of the song and process from his journal:
“i’m really proud of it, to be honest. Â writing and recording and mixing a song in a day is a daunting process, and i’m really happy with how it turned out. Â and i think that kelli’s vocals sound beautiful.”
You can watch the video, download the entire song in all of its versions, and watch the concert for free.
I love NPR.
