If SM makes you do one thing then it’s reinventing your work process. So its not a style I’m used to hear from you, but still AB resonates through out it all. A great haunting piece had to turn my bass down on my amp for this :)

I can understand the challenge. I’m like that too. I get confused if I can’t hear a chorus somewhere. You’ve dealt masterfully with the material, though, creating a piece full of tension and suspense with brill sound quality. Nice guitar effect, sir.

What a soundtrack. This could be used in a videogame or a movie score such as I, Robot II: Electric Boogaloo. Nicely done!

What a great build, with a chill-inducing peak. Maybe a different form for you but still a highly accomplished structure. I like this very much.

Oh my- how I love this! (No exaggeration, I assure you!)

A very well done soundtrack. The integration does not appear to have been easy, but you’re well out. Sometimes, thinking outside the box, we we perceive that we are able to envisage and create something else. Really good job ….

admiral - you’ve done it again! expanded your talents to new realms. a beautiful soundscape of PorchCat, combined with your really magical guitar tones & sounds (that is you right?).

Yeah… I used the guitar like glue (like Susan says) to hold it together. :)

well, that is some of the sweetest smelling glue i’ve ever encountered!

Now this is a perfect example of the magic of the secret mixter! You not only rose to meet the challenge but you soared into the stratosphere! (No pun intended). Amazing, amazing soundscape — you used your guitar most effectively to make the sounds coalesce. Great work Admiral! Bravo!

I understand how this might have challenged your remixing comfort zone. We typically paint sound in two very different ways. You did a wonderful job marrying our styles and producing a crazy space baby! :) This soundscape fits right in with my dreams of space and the engineer. Brilliant!

Very cool soundscape stuff. And nice job on stepping out of the comfort zone. I don’t think I’ve heard you hit the whammy bar before. :)

Side note: I’ve been wondering for a while now, but you mentioning your love of sci-fi may have just answered my question… is your user name a Heinlein reference?

No, my username was born in frustration. I was trying to register for a website a long time ago, and every time I typed something in, it said it was taken. I just typed a jumble of characters in frustration and it let me sign in.

Stupidly, I kept using that just about everywhere, and I’m sorta stuck with it now. I actually don’t even care for my user name much, to tell you the truth. :)

Actually didn’t use the whammy bar on this. I pressed on the neck joint (poor man’s whammy.) :)

Oh, haha, I’ve been there before - getting stuck picking a ridiculous user name.

Funny though that you love sci-fi and randomly picked a nickname for one of the most famous sci-fi writers ever. In case you don’t know who I’m talking about it’s Robert A. Heinlein who wrote Stranger in a Strange Land, Starship Troopers, and lots of other stuff. He was in the navy and named Robert, so some fans refer to him as Admiral Bob.

Loved Heinlein. Read “Red Planet” a dozen times. Didn’t know he had the nickname though. You learn something new everyday.

Slowly getting my way through the secret mixters, I’ve had a second listen and I’m blown away by this. Top marks mate! Nice glue

I haven’t been listening to much of anything lately because I had trouble with my ears. Why should you care? Well…this piece really highlights all the good stuff about my headphones, it sounds fantastic, especially the way the sound is spaced. You made great use of your samples and made something very coherent in it’s own special language :-).

Now I really should give your usual style offerings a listen :-).
