A new SackJo - percussion madness! Great. I love percussion - but all these drums now take half of the room at home. (The Taiko’s are VST - my flat is not that big :-)

Nice to hear you using my stems!

Thank you my dear! Despite the VST nature of the taikos, you created a great feel/sound that I keep coming back to — so thank you once again for sharing!

Super. Love the Taiko Drums. Love the whole build-up. An interestingly, after the track ends, there’s an echo of wind in my head (or maybe that’s my noisy fan… nah, it’s all good).

The wind is there Ivan. The wind is actually a sonic theme throughout the play. I’m so glad you enjoyed. Thanks for listening!

Digeridoos, taiko drums, all that percussion building… the mothership has arrived: at Earth!

Thanks Admiral! Given all the hard work I’ve been doing on this project, I feel a bit spacey myself.

Dramatic percussion, intense indeed. Hope you have some hearty speakers.

We have some good speakers — we’re all just disappointed that we don’t have MORE speakers! Thanks for listening.

Awesome! Atmospheric! I love the taiko drums and the didjeridoo.

Thanks for listening Deb. The didjeridoo is such a mystical “voice.” Breath and wind are sonic themes throughout this show so the didgeridoo is the perfect accompaniment.

Love it! I am a percussionist, though not the best in the land. However, I am always counting. I enjoy it when a piece such as this displaces the “1” in such a way that there’s a bit of fright if the artist can pull it off. You have done so beautifully. Cool stuff…….. FB

Thank you my dear babies. The music was created for a dance so any rhythmic displacements are based on the actual movement as it occurs — it was all felt out rather than thought out.

This sounds pretty damn good. Mixing/mastering tips? Well, sonically it also sounds very good to these ears. I think that only the really good mixters can give you useful tips at this stage.

I appreciate that you listen dear Sub — thank you. And by the way, I believe that you are one of “the really good mixters” around here!

This is great, a piece I didn’t epact from you. I once saw an expirimental ballet show and this would fit perfect in there.

On the mixing I feel that the lower freq of the drums eat all the room for drone & digirido. And maybe some compression on the drums, cause at some points the mask the digiridoo completly.

I also think that the digirido and the 2 drum parts play 3 diffrent rythms maybe it would be an idea to ask someone to play the drums live to your backtrack?

Thanks AA —- I’ll try working with the frequencies/compression in an attempt to improve the distinction on the low end. The conflicting/polyrhythmic nature of the track is intentional as the theme of the play is how a woman deals with split off aspects of her soul. I wish I could wrangle a live drummer! It would be awesome if I had one to play live at the show…

It’s incredible to picture these sounds filling a theater accompanied by dance! Wonderful piece. I especially love the atmospheric vocal layers. Wish I could be in LA to see this production.

oh yeah I like this—so easy to already see the dancers performing to this. I cannot offer any advice on mixing/mastering but will say that to me everything sounds in its place. Glad to hear that this production is still going ahead—-im sure its alot of work—so my hats of to you and good luck with it.

One aspect that I did not know you. Progression, we held in suspense throughout its duration. It’s intense, and very colorful. The design had to be fairly complex, but your message gets through.
Un grand moment ….

Nice percussion work. That’s a lot of samples you have weaved together cohesively! It should work well for what you are doing :)

You’re not making things easy for you with all those samples but still the result is absolutely flawless technically. A very intense, almost obsessive feel compositionwise. Solide!..as I think they say in France when something is cool and good.
