Exquisitely beautiful - with just that hint of edge to intrigue! This will be remixed for sure!

Obviously, it’s you and Gurdonark who inspire the lot - and here’s another ‘why so is’! You’re such a positive force SackJo! b.k.

Very ethereal and atmospheric. The bell lends a nautical air to it too, I think.
So, not so happy with the Snowball? Right mic for a winter project, no? ;-) I love mine and it helps that my ears don’t know any better and that it’s so darn cute sitting there on my shelf :-).
Great work, Susan and good luck with the overall organization of the project.
Thanks E. The snowball is fine, but I find there is a certain hollow sound and that it picks up a lot of noise — but I could just be noisy (I had to edit out the sound of my bangles because I forgot to take them off before I started recording). I’m so glad to have your contribution to the project too. It’s been an extraordinary journey, that’s for sure.
And I said it before, and I’ll say it again, I absolutely love your new pic!

I’m a huge fan of the composer Harry Partch, with his just intonation scales and his invented instruments. I like this piece in the same way I admire another trait of his pieces—the sense of a dramatic performance embued in every piece. Here the listener feels there is an untold story behind the song—perhaps a story in distant galaxies, perhaps a story in the most mundane earthly place—but definitely a story. It’s that light—the storyteller’s orb—to which one reaches in listening to this song. Thanks for experimenting in how to implode the white cube!
While “light” is a preeminent theme in my work, I often explore the idea and meaning of the “story.” Everyone has one.
Thank you for this thoughtful review. But more importantly, Thank you for supplying such versatile samples to work with, and thank YOU for being an integral part of The White Cube Remix project.

So I was doing my normal “play all” thing while working on some things and stopped doing what I was doing midway through because I was mesmerized by this mix! It sounds so incredible!! fantastic work!!!!

I do say, SackJo.
This beautiful chanting reminds me of the traditional joik chanting of the Lapps/Sami people of northern Scandinavia. Its sound is comparable to the traditional chanting of some Native American cultures. A connection. A coincidence? This is so beautiful!
What a terrific association! Thank you so much for sharing that. Having no exposure whatsoever to the chanting of the Lapps/Sami people, I chalk it up to the power of the collective unconscious which can often give us useful information without us even knowing.

I like hearing mixes from you. What I like is that I can hear ‘you’ in them. Also, thanks for the separate upload of vocals. Pretty sure you’ll be hearing those again soon.

I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I could not sound like anyone else if I tried (and believe me, I have). So now to have you say this, it is really one of the nicest things anyone could possibly say. Thank you.

Mysterious and Lovely both…
I was reminded of the old fairytale illustrations of Edmund Dulac - and also the strange footage of an actual discovered old film I once saw about some lost explorer and his expedition somewhere in an icy and cold Tundra.
Your ( and Mr. Gurdonark’s) White Cube Project has certainly been quite a thrilling and successful venture.
Loved your contribution.
Thank you Anchor! Interestingly, I just sent you a note about your wonderful white cube contribution. I love your associations. The tundra does seem a formidible environment, but I have always found something incredibly intriguing and exquisite about that vast white space.

Toward the end, I’m reminded of the last movement of Holst’s “The Planets”. It does have a soudtrack quality to it, which is not a bad thing at all. I like the ominous bell. But forget the frozen tundra. I’m thinking Vegas at 5:00 in the morning after a long night and it’s already 90 degrees. Will anyone in Oslo have that impression? Good work, router sharer.

At last I have the chance to listen to this. It’s absolutely beautiful, SJ, but also unsettling. For me it embodies the perfect and breathtaking desolation of wastes of snow. An outstanding creative piece - which is only what I’d expect from you! xxxx
