So glad this got the Ed Pick, I was working my way around to it for sure. Had to head out the door. This is FRESH music!

Thank you sir, very kind of you. I still think it could use some tweaking. I’m not 100% satisfied with the levels and EQ, and not sure that it passes the “car test,” yet…..

This is a simply beautiful song, from piano to vocal treatment, you created a brilliant song. Compliments CLA’s voice wonderfully!

Is it bad that I am kind of reminded to Björk? (I mean it absolutely as a compliment).
Excellent solid work.

I thought the same thing. This is a sensitive and elegant treatment for a wonderful vocal.

I think any comparison to Björk should be taken as a compliment. There are definite similarities in style and tone between Björk and CLA.

Real nice instrumental interplay that plays nicely with the vocal interplay.
Very cool mid-way cool-down.
Excellent.

Really cool to have you come around again. My kids grew up on “Bogi Beat Pillow Fight” :)

Thank you so much for your comment. It’s nice to be back.

My oldest was 9 when you uploaded that, and we just dropped him off at (Warren Wilson) College last month, so … :)

it is SO GOOD to have you back. I’m a huge DK fan, and have a great respect for Sander’s intricate keyboard work. You’ve emulated him with perfect precision (and that isn’t easy). your production and musicianship in each “chapter” tells a deep story and reflects your artful talent. that middle section is especially poignant. beautiful, beautiful.

Thank you very much, Snowflake! As for DK’s piano, all I can say is thank you, quantization! ;) I am glad that you were able to here the story in the “chapters.” I felt I was taking some risks in that middle part. I’m glad it seemed to pay off.

Thanks again. And cheers for the Ed Pick!

Excellent remix, the way it unfolds is embracing and fulfilling. Short and sweet, leaving us longing for more, perfect :)

Ahhh… wonderful focus on CLA’s touching vocals… delicate, yet driving… Absolutely beautiful. “Thank you, I’m sorry, I love you…” I hadn’t hear these vocals before… they stir the heart. So good to see you here, Ben.💗
