doo wop: the sound of new york
This is a project about the music genre ‘Doo wop’. Doo-wop is a genre of music that was developed by African-Americans in New York City. The artists don’t use instruments. Doo-wop features vocal group harmony, nonsense syllables, a simple beat, sometimes little or no instrumentation, and simple music and lyrics. I worked only typographically so you can feel the way they sing it.
