Probably best known as the frontman and one of the guitarists of Oceansize, Mike Vennart's slightly raspy, crooning voice is one of the
trademark characteristics of Oceansize's sound.
Well respected for their progressive soundscape, Oceansize have gained a cult following, although never reaching into the realms of mainstream success. After Oceansize's break-up in 2011, Vennart continued to work on other projects.
In 2012, he released two EPs as British Theatre with former bandmate "Gambler", while releasing their debut studio effort "Mastery" in 2016.
Mike Vennart has also released a solo album "The Demon Joke" in 2015 as Vennart, featuring former bandmates Steve Durose and Gambler as part of his studio and touring ensemble. He also tours with Biffy Clyro as a guitarist since a couple of years.
Currently, he is working on his second Vennart outing.

I'm new to notewatching and stuff, so bear with me if i categorized some of those notes wrongly.
Recently, i discovered this gem of a website and discovered, that there was no thread for Mike Vennart (which is really a shame, given that he already is underrated). Therefore, i took the initiative and made a thread myself.
Please guys, feel free to add notes and correct something. Smile

You're doing good! Though, the purple/underline system is archaic and outdated. We use just underlines now so it doesn't interfere with other colors. Nice work, man.

Thank you very much! Feel free to guide me into the realm of correct notewatching. The only notes i'm more or less sure of are those in the G4-C5 section, so any helping hand is much needed to do justice to the great Mike Vennart Wink

I actually attempted to notewatch him a while back and should have a bunch of notes saved somewhere...

Nah but I'm sure I remember at least G2s and chesty B4s, possibly even some 5th octave stuff. But you really need to do some more research, with or without my help.

I added a bunch of notes here and there.
Because i am (as already stated) new to notewatching, i'm not too sure about their correctness.
I can't seem to tell notes in vocals as well as others do Confused

Once again, i added a good bunch of notes. I was quite suprised to find some really high notes in songs that i would normally not have noticed.
His range and ability are not too bad it seems. Although i am still open to suggestions and corrections if anyone is noticing something wrong.

Hey guys, is anyone of you able to pitch this brief, but really high note from the Oceansize live performance of their album Effloresce at the Roundhouse in Manchester (2008)?
It happens during the guitar build-up from the song "Catalyst" and to my ears this little shriek sounds like a sixth octave note.
I tried to find the note on my keyboard and the note synchronising best was straight up a E♭6 (!!) Shocked
However, i find it very hard to pitch shrieked or screamed notes, so i might be wrong and it could just be a E♭5 Very Happy.

Hmm, dunno doesn't sound to me like a G/G#...
When i try to find the note on my keyboard, E♭ is pretty much tonally similiar, at least to my ears.
What octave this note is in though, i cannot say. Maybe he does really quick slide up from G#5 to E♭6 or is that out of the question Confused

It was there, but two days ago i screwed up my editing code. I had an short text written on his career and that also got deleted by my stupidity.
Is there anyway to recover old edits? I would be thankful to make it like it was Smile

EDIT: I added the color code again manually but i would still like to know if a recovery of old edits is possible Smile.

Found a cache of the old page and added your vocal description back into the OP.

Thanks a lot!

P.S. : Is anyone else able to pitch the aforementioned note (https://youtu.be/7TB3AHSUV_c?t=5m53s) ? Confused

Shall i include it then? To me it sounds like a E♭6 but you are probably more experienced in pitching those notes.
Is it a sung note though?
I did a "Total Vocal Range" and a "Sung Vocal Range" section for now Smile.
