Extraordinary mix. These guitars “pulp fiction” are great. The background is enormous.
I think that the voice is a little low on the whole, it seeks to improve this, the voice of Kristin deserves it. This improved the mix (IMHO). Anyway I love it. The hard work gets rewarded.

Thanks onlymeith !
I tried to let “space” around the voice, but it was hard to mix it with the whole instruments…

I find the voice level ok. a matter of taste I guess…

Extraordinary piece. Goes from Floyd to Bond to Gabriel in a matter of minutes.

Quite a journey.

Thanks LS. Yet I tried to give unity in the progress, guided by Kristin’song.

Very clean, and like LS said, quite a jaunt across soundscapes.

Thank you ducky !
Made all the riffs and textures by myself, attempting the omelette to be digestible.

Well, you certainly know your way around digital audio manipulation… “Sure, just make a long-term fumbler toward sonic variety and cleanliness like myself feel foolish…” ;-)

Sure, sir !
Yet harmonic studies help a lot to find a way through sonic development.
Personnally, when I start to work on an a-capella, I first write the melodic line on a sheet, just to examine the chord context, and choose the ones which fit with the feeling I want to render.
Anyway, each as his own recipes !!!

Great epic armonies. The guitars and the perc with cadence goes perfect with the style of the voice… Very interesting style, cadence with power…

Thanks durden !
I don’t know what you exactly mean with “cadence” (in French it’s a harmonic conclusive form, as IV V I). Maybe you talk about the beat?
