Great mix of the various samples—a good listen with lots of life.

Thanks for listening. Morgantj teaches about life.

Brilliant exploration if the text. I just finished listening to morgantj’s secret remix offering so it made listening to your track particularly timely. You managed to infuse your remix with elements that are very much Morgantj-esque while at the same retaining the unique sound and feel that I love about your music. Bravo!

Thanks S., this is what I meant to do, something in between. Essesq’s poem is really close to the Hindu sacred books I’m reading in this period.

Interesting to read that my poem was similar to Hindu sacred books. I guess there’s a need for this sort of thing.

Great use of the samples. Love those synthy pads

Thanks Scomber, I uploaded the pads as a sample. The downstairs at the end of the first refrain are actually the crescendo synth BEFORE the refrain, reversed and sped up by 400%. I’ve seen this kind of tricks in Morgantj’s uploads.

wow you’ve truly personified morgantj! very impressive. i love each section, especially the slow, breakdown section in the middle. it is also very cool how you’ve edited and combined the different vocals around a theme (thank you for including me!). there is so much to sink into in this mix, i need to listen again.

Thanks a lot Snowflake, I also dig the break, since it makes Essesq’s words more pregnant. You were, with Ivan, the only one who sung so it was natural to put you in the refrain.

I like that you included a melody. So its easy to listen but keeps being enthralling with all these extra sounds in it.

Thanks rocavaco, you’ve known me since a while now, I could not do without it.

A really well knit variety of sound. Nicely done.

I often listen to your odd proposals (). Morgantj is also weird..

Love it. Amazingly intricate. The mix pulls me in and the words captivate.

Beautiful you’re also here. There are a lot of things that do not exist, so I am glad that this community exists!

Only on ccMixter can something about nothing become so much more. I like your two extra lines, maybe even more than my own. You’ll laugh because the first time I listened to this yesterday I had just come back from visiting an Indian grocery store (it’s a thing in my family, don’t ask) so the sitarry guitar bits really hit me. I don’t know if they were your adds or from morgantj’s material, but I loved them. This (no pun intended) is a fine bit of work. I like it a lot. Thank you for picking up my humble ode to frustration and making it something more worthy than it deserves :-).

It’s a sampled indian sitar that I played on the keyboard(I uploaded it as a sample).
Two extra lines: I needed one more verse in the song structure after the first refrain, so I put in a couple of sentences. They come from an ancient Indian book (8th century) where I read: “people have remembrance of the past and they keep imagining the future”. I was struck because in modern times we would say “people have memory of the past and plan their future”, so we give much more reality to the words while the indian text was so more dim, shadowy.
