Rufus Wainwright’s unique vocal melody for his new tune “Bitter Tears” inspired me to produce this glitch house remix. His original song has such a drugged-out baroque feel and I wanted my remix to be just as moody. I had a little fun with the lyric, “Choking on my bitter tears,” transforming it into a new melody and turning it into a catchy refrain of its own. For the dubstep breakdowns, I created several new synthesizer sounds and experimented with some rhythmic slicing and glitch effects on the vocals.
