I really love Admiral Bob’s remix (particularly the chorus) and felt compelled to sing along. I created a choir by singing 10 different tracks, doubling the good admiral’s parts. I tried to EQ some of the 2k out of deb’s pella, but there was a lot of sibilance that made her beautiful lyrics difficult to discern. So I doubled her spoken word, and thereby really connected to her lyrics. I then edited some of Abstract Audio’s samples and cut them into simple kick, snare and hi-hat parts. That turned into playing djembe, snare, kick, and shaker along with the admiral. Then spinningmerkaba decided to join in, and played a djembe track, a cardboard box track, a random track (chairs, claps, countertops), and a woodblock. We had a lot of fun! I doubled the chorus and tripled Anchor in the outro.

Mixing this was difficult, and I’m sort of stuck. I may try to remix again and upload one with better levels - my ears are worn. Suggestions are welcome!

Baptism (lyrics by debbizo):

She could not imagine there was a heaven.
It was nothing she could hold in her vision
and climb to through dreams.
She could not trust the untouchable
the reality she could never know.
There were only loose threads of past and present
which she twisted on stretched-out fingers
to weave into days she could touch and feel;
and voices in the tortuous void, that did not resemble speech;
and faceless, nameless sounds she must resist like early death.
They came too soon, so that she did not hear
only listened to the confusion she felt.

In the room of invisible faces she must walk alone
and feel their eyes upon her, knowing they could see her desire
like the full-blown rose dropping its garments.
Knowing she would fall into the arms of a stranger
and wake to discover she had given too much of her self.

Chorus (traditional):

Agnus Dei
Qui tollis peccata mundi

Agnus Dei
Qui tollis peccata mundi

Agnus Dei
Qui tollis peccata mundi

Agnus Dei
Qui tollis peccata mundi
