I really like the overall feel of this; the piano had moments that were a bit atonal in comparision to the rest of the mix, but that ‘s probably just my personal taste. Nice job!

We’re lost in a foreign film made in the 1970s but depicting the 1930s. There’s the hint of a knowing smile from the woman standing in the hallway gazing into the mirror. The keyboardist plays with confidence in the church balcony when nobody is listening. A bassist polishes up her grooves to audition in the band that is all but guaranteed a contract from 4AD, if her playing is sufficiently layered. The backing vocals remind me of the Puie whistle sample on this site, although chopped up and sequenced into the kind of sumptuous food you imagine they serve when filming Italian films on distant location in the Pyrenees. I think the film is fully of imagery—but it never loses the warm familiarity that makes one buy ticket after ticket, bathing gently in the warm steam of remembered cinematic joy.

I entirely agree.
It’s so delicate…
And Gurdonark is a poet :-)

Love it. Love the balance of delicate sound elements and distorted bits of noise.

You’ve really brought out the best of Silvia’s voice - sounds stunning.

Inventive music and excellent production. Very much enjoyed.

Really lovely track, with continuosly changing sound (that’s good). Great work and welcome to ccMixter!

As a personal matter of taste, let me say that the vocal treatment does not convince me completely, specially the wide separation between syllables and some weird pitch changes (when she says “desaparecen”). Other than that… excellent :)

Many thanks everyone, a version with correct vocal editing and mixing should be up shortly. I’ll have a listen to the piano again too. I think I’m going to like this community :)

Nice work on the electronical elements and the well fitting vocal treatment. A spare arrangement is always a good thing for me. Beautiful work!
