The fx work well on the poem. The guitars fit well and are mixed well in. The percussive “claps” don’t work so well for me, as they sound a bit over-virtual.

I like eightprime’s work, yet I think it can be a challenge to remix. I opine that the persistent-beat cadence of his delivery can overwhelm a song. Here, it might be interesting to cut the poem up a bit, to create some spaces from the relentless delivery.

The extro cuts out, when a fade might be more pleasing.

Thanks for the advice! I must go back to play around with it some in the near future.

I don’t think I would have notice the claps if g doesn’t bring it up. I LOVE the guitars and the overall feel is cool. I might have dropped the guitar out at some point but this is nice.

Thanks! I had already downloaded eightprime’s piece and when I came across HC-7’s DiFranco-like guitars, I just heard them together so I decided to do a simple blend of them.

It of course did not hurt that I am very familiar with Ani and her work (including her support of spoken word). But I guess you could say I cheated since she’s a hometown hero :)

What kind of guitar drop out would you have liked to hear? A slow fade out? A bit of muffling after a point? Etc?

either drop out or variation, I just could have used a break from it at one point.

I’m not saying this happened to you here, but sometimes I’ll get into a remix, working on it for days, hearing the same parts continuously. I can write off the repetition as part of the work flow. At some point you have to get into the shoes of the listener and listen with “fresh” ears, fooling yourself into pretending that you’ve never heard the mix before. I forget this sometimes and so a repetitive part or sound makes it through the editing process.
