The music for the VoKate album was created by layering a series of looping vocal melodies and sound effects, all of which were created organically by Kate Westfall. Rhythms were made through body-actions of the feet, hands, arms, mouth, collarbone, and so on... The exception to the organic purity is \'Private Scientist\' which includes Kate\'s keyboard and pencil scratchings among other aural teasings, with assistance from audio technician Eric Barnett. The album\'s all-vocal loops of melodies and sound effects create styles ranging from hypnotic soundscapes to militant marches to dance club spirituals. Kate Westfall\'s live performances include live vocal looping, digital rhythms, occasional hand drums, spoken word, and even digeridoo.
