Remix of Snowflake for February ’12 Leap of the Heart.

Since I’ve backed Snowflake’s vocals with my own instrumental parts in remixes before, I wanted to do something different having her as an assignment. After listening to practically all of her instrumental stems, I became really entranced by the chord progressions in several of her piano tracks - really moving stuff.

I was relatively certain that I was going to use her reading of Debbizo’s Baptism. After I sequenced several segments from various piano tracks into a story around the reading, I then filled out the remix out with vox and instrumental tracks from other uploads. Finally, I layered some of my own percussion in, and then mirrored the lines in some of her underlying chords to get specific melodies to pop. I may need to revisit the final mix (finished it on headphones late at night!).

Editorial pick

Turning the melody and chords of snowflake’s Inside Outside into an intense backing track, vo1k1 transforms snowflake’s words from many songs into a story telling masterpiece at times tender and brutal. It begins and ends with a whisper, but this will do a lot more than whisper at you.
