I really like this, I’m getting quite into the whole glitch thing.

One small nit is that there’s a dischord on the last note of the ice-bell type instrument (around 3:28 for instance). I would re-pitch this as it’s a bit harsh atm.

I’d also mix the vocal more to the front, but that’s just my taste.

Experimental is good :)

this is insanely beautiful…
how ev. Anchor’s voice has it’s own reverb, and even now, in a reverb war with dittoditto (he says none I say more) and to quote a great mixter “what if you were left to sing in the caves of Lascaux?” I feel the reverb put him too far away. Other than that it is perfect in every way. Lyrics great voice closer, music beautiful.

There’s lots and lot’s in here to like but the production is too heavy handed for my tastes. The sound comes across as too much in the face and the piece should have been engineered to bring out the great parts that the mix holds. Instead it smashes them against the wall! AM’s vox is lost in the turmoil and with the added reverb it has no chance in this battle of the sounds!

Well thats my take on it for what its worth!

Despite what I have said I really do like this its just a pity that its so cluttered.

New version is up with less reverb and some EQing and level tweaking on the vocals to bring them out.

Yes that does sound much better. Still a few things I’d alter but thats personal taste again!

Great job!!

This was a great project to be a part of. DJ’s talents as a mixer and his vision for arranging sounds and phrasings are amazing. Thank You.

this song made me aware of temperatures. the cold fade-in pads and the impersonal percussion and then the warm cello and consoling vocals. wonderful and sad. a great title too.
