Thanks to you Panu. It’s always a pleasant experience to work with your pellas.

Yes, I did enjoy it a lot. Great mix with every element doing something interesting.

Thanks Ciggi.

Despite your caveats, your guitar sound and playing is just always such a pleasure to listen to, and the warm tone of your guitars sits so well with the tone of Panu’s warm voice.

Also, congratulations on your ccM anniversary! Your distinctive creative spark has certainly contributed to ccM’s brightness.

I think this is fantastic. There is a certain ease in the mix. A very natural and clear sound.
Like the brothers Allmans and Nevilles getting together with no drinks apart from mineral water.

Allman bros. are specially important for me. Thanks for your words.

Love the guitar Pitx. Really good placement of Panu’s vox. His phrasing is so good I think you could put him anywhere!
Great track, the straight beat works really well.

You say that Panu’s phrasing could be in any place and that’s the trick, although the pella is at 115 bpm, the Panu’s phrasing can go well with bpm around 115. I only reordered the entries of Panu with the beats.

sounds kool…i like the dissonance of this track….it gives it a trippy vibe. Nice mix too.
permalink   Pitx Mon, Jul 13, 2009 @ 8:54 AM
Your sample is excellent and I have used only a fraction of it. It gives to the mix a great percent of its spark. Thank you.

You’re right about Panumoon. Does he sing..? Does he speak..? Not easy to know. I’ve already tried to work with his acappella, it was very hard to follow him..But you’ve done it very well..and in “all acoustic”..great..!

Perhaps he “singpeaks” :)
No doubt, he sings, there are chords that go well and others that no.
Thanks for review.

Thanks wellman. I’m glad you like it.

I really want to do something with a Panu vocal (long time fan) but as yet I haven’t been able to figure out what. This gives me some idea of what’s possible in the ‘almost’ genre.
permalink   Pitx Mon, Jul 13, 2009 @ 9:05 AM
Sure that anything you would do with panu will sound absolutely original.
Thanks for writing.

I think “almost” is the best thing in singer-songwriter music. So many of my favorite songs in this vein feature “almost”,whether it’s the imperfect rhymes and harmonies in Joni Mitchell or John Gorka’s simple almost rambling or even the 4 track almost-ness of Nebraska.
I am all for technology, but I do not want to see the melodyne-sponsored elimination of the healing power of almost.

Here you make very creative use of the samples to fill this piece out,and to make it a really good listen. your guitar work always impresses me.

I’m with technology too. Without it, all of this would be impossible… I still hallucinate with the fact that music can be shared through a wire, joining musicians that could’t meet in the analogic/real world.
Thanks for your review.

the “almost” vocals give it a truthfulness a real tune could not. Pitx righteous guitar work reminds me of the best J.J.Cale blues and I wish there was a magazine for this kinda music, but I do believe it moves faster than print.

I confess: I’m impregnated with ‘J.J. Calein’.
Thanks for the review

An “almost” treatment? That must be the best description yet. Love the concept. :)

Beautiful, beautiful instrumentation. Any chance of you uploading the stems too? (If you do, I promise not to bastardize them like last time. You know. Not too much.)


Happy three years. Next round of beers on me.
permalink   Pitx Mon, Jul 13, 2009 @ 9:26 AM
Here’s the first round!
I will submit the stems; give me some time. Of course, you have all the permissions to make with them what you consider.
Thank you.

The stems are up and ready to be ‘colabirizated’ :-)

This is an example where simplicity can add a lot of meaning.. This track takes me back to when the Blues was considered the modern music, but even if there seem to be no electronic instruments here, when you listen to it you also get a sense of futuristic music… Very well done!!
