I really like the way that you’ve made this electro setting smooth and not at all cluttered, so that Rob’s words and shakuhachi stand out and invite the listener to listen. Good job on this remix.

yeah, I thought it’d be nice if people heard SOME source material this time :P

When I checked out the original pells, my respect for you went up a notch (not to dis robwalkerpoet of course).

I spent a lot of time on the vocals and samples, thanks a lot :D

Some nice dynamic touches V. The transitions to/from the ambient sections are very tasty indeed. I enjoyed listening very much. Bravo my dear!

I’m glad they worked ^ ^ It was like going from half to double to have tempo :S

well Vidian, i am truly a devoted fan of yours and this track reminds me why. as soon as the groove kicked in i said aloud, “Vidian kicks so much ass” — you have created another danceable, artistic favorite of mine. love the sample use you’ve woven together. great arrangement. you are not a robot either ;)

any significance to your “v” getting smaller, V

Just thought my Avy could use some remixing too :P

I’m thinking of walking on the wild side, and going; 62 sized Comic Sans V next

“If I learned one thing this mixter, it’s that robwalkerpoet is not a robot.” - I can attest to that, I’ve met the real robwalkerpoet ;-) Nice work v…I was going to say almost exactly what Gurdonark said.

Thanks, Vidian. Firstly I’m grateful that you chose The Prisoner as the basis for this and left the poem intact! I’m even more impressed with the way you’ve woven in my disparate (and admittedly very amateur) samples of shakuhachi, koto, ukulele & harmonica into a very polished integrated whole. Much appreciated.

It was my pleasure really ^ ^ I’m glad you like it. I found your instruments added a kind of more organic sound I’ve really be lacking. I believe I’ll be using your samples more than this instance ^ ^

I like Atlas especially because I think we all feel like we have the world on our shoulders sometimes.

Thanks, v. Yes it’s that ‘organic’ sound of the shakuhachi which really attracts me to it. My sensei plays traditional Japanese stuff which reduces me to tears. Something about the human breath and the closeness of the sound to a human voice… There are only five holes, so half-notes require half-fingering. Octave jumps are achieved by tightening lips & raising the diaphragm. It’s very visceral and body-oriented. There are also complex overtones that you don’t get with electronic instruments. I’m only a beginner. But I’m hooked.
