Love the lightness of sound here. Something that lets my ears rest for a while. Very cool arrangement. Like the tickling bell sound too, very sweet mix.

Thank you. When I did a remix of Whipped I learnt that I didn’t need to put all my sounds to the front and that, as long as the main parts were there, I could keep things light.

Thanks for the alluring secret-mixter! I like the use of two very different samples from me. Very expressive!

I think you did a great job — sounds fantastic. I truly appreciate that you make “how I did it” notes as well. I learn something everytime I read how you did it. I am so glad that you landed here and are part of the ccMixter musical family. Thanks so much for sharing. Bravo!

I am laughing at the word “job”, because I enjoyed doing it so much.

Thank you and I really appreciate ccmixter and the people too. Most weeks I have at least two ccmixter inspired tunes on the go, even though they may not make it onto this website. I love all the creativity and appreciation of music on display here.

a moving tribute to terra firma. the cello plays an important and beautiful role. the instrumental sections between the vocals are beautifully mystical.

Thank you, I was thinking of a recent car journey with the countryside flashing past and that we have become observers of our surroundings rather than participants. The central section is a stop at a beautiful wooded area with a stream (the bells), then having to rush off again to our destination. The central theme lingers but is soon swamped by driving on the motorway.
A kind of sadness that we don’t stop to appreciate the countryside around us.

Now I’ll be singing to myself “trees….rocks….rivers….” for the next few hours. It’s got just the right amount of quirk required for Anchor.

Thank you very much and I always hope my tunes have Quirkiness, Strangeness and Charm.
