There’s a certain lack of oh-so-hip self-aware reference in your remixes that I really enjoy; nothing wrong with some tongue-in-cheek now and then, but what impresses me is your success at creating an emotionally honest interpretation, yet keeping the snigger factor at zero. Well-crafted, yet never trying too hard!

AT just do one thing for me:
End it properly. Drop your beat and let the strings go on that final note for 5 or 6 secs or so.

OK, done—kind of.
I hang my head in shame as I walk slowly to the back of the class :)

No shame there , its better but its still cutting off , possibly end on the C hold and let it go to silence :-)

I love the mix AT but felt like the plug had been pulled at the end. Personally for me when the feel of real orchestra has been used then a piece should end like they were actually playing it.

A small point here but worth saying

Hey AT
Love the feel for this one!
What plug in is the strings your using from?

Thanks George—-the strings are from Dimension Pro soft synth from cakewalk.

I really like this. The combination of Lisa’s vocals with the instrumentation brings me right back to 1996 and a release called “Out of tune” by Outcast (not Outkast).

You have a talent not just for find great harmonies to match with vocals, but also at creating emotionally real music, without falling too deep into the melodramatic.

Nice work.

Something very internal, introspective about this one…a brooding girl in some distant European atmosphere. But the lush sustaining music is so rich and full and adds a kind of quixotic hope. Captivating, nice work…..

A really “atmospherical” mix!

PS: I’m sure someone else did something similar with this vocals as they were remixed about a hundred times by now…

Thanks SC, Yeah there are a few out there!!! Just had to do one though as I like her voice so much.

I really like the poetic feel. Her voice and words are so pure and your remix frame them beautifully. It drive the words forward but doesn’t get in the way of them.

Very beautiful.

What I like more and more on your work is that you effortly try to combine classical orchestral and electronic elements that make your remixes more and more unique and enjoyable. LS still mentioned the discussable ending. I agree there, you should make it longer to make it sound real pro until the end! ;-)

Agree about the ending but still a very nice mix

Wonderful remix indeed! The symphony orchestra with a looping box is a really nice sound. And I agree, the ending deserves the “real orchestra” treatment to maintain and finish with the same auditory illusion that makes the whole piece so strong. i.e. no fade-out :-)
