When I was a kid I remember hearing about whistles that were so high, only dogs could hear them.
Sure enough – dogs can hear up to 45,000 Hz whereas we humans only hear up to 20,000.
So that was my starting point for Callum Boyce with his very high voice.
Sometimes we have enough trouble getting other people to understand us even when they’re listening, so how frustrating must it when you can’t understand the language or, in Callum’s case, when no one can actually hear you?
It was a fun story to write and sing (in a very high voice). Kids seem to like singing along to the oohs and aahs and it’s nice getting those different textures when I play it live.
