But you are the first to remix her…Nice work, simple and very cool ambiance, calming down.

heh, thanks- i’m still reminded that my musical knowledge remains less than encyclopedic, after listening to her remix featuring the vocals, and saying “ohhh, THAT’s what she was doing…” the most i know about aeolian mode is about as much as I do about dorian, mixolydian, or any of them other modes- “oh yeah, that stuff music-school-people talk about”. I have a decent ear most of the time, but I’m also trying to learn more about production/mastering/recording etc.
I’m a WIP- but thanks for encouragement!

That’s a review that can’t help but make me smile… so-
I’m uploading the instrumental to this, maybe it’s a forced fit over this pella, but if you’re feelin’ it like that, I’d be more than happy to let you and other mixters play with it, maybe there’s other ways to enjoy my what? slinky..I said uh, slinky lil’ track..

the original piano piece from Klaus Neimaier also threw me to the Harvard Encylcopedia of music. I though aoelian, but I could be wrong. All I know, when I figured it out acoustically on my piano there were lots of black keys, the ones I usually avoid like the plague. I think you did admirably the second time around, actually it’s pretty wonderful. Let’s blame Klaus or better yet, I think the lesson here is to maybe refer to all the source material beforehand. This is my new method anyway. I think this is very good.

(wipes forehead) phew! Glad you liked it, that 1st upload was a result of ear burnout, i had spent too much time working on it to be able to “hear it” anymore- I had also misremembered your description as it being in E minor rather than E-flat minor, so when I started noodling around (the EP track was my starting point) I was thinking “wait a minute, Em isn’t working as a root at all, but Am sounds like a much better fit..”
Sometimes just grabbing a raw pella or sample without listening to an original mix or other remixes is good for avoiding a subconscious notion of how something “should” sound, but yeah, in this case I would have avoided a lot of puzzlement and headache… Thanks for the kind words..

This track complements her vocals beautifully. I like the dichotomy of the loud percussion with the groovy organ. I also liked that quick Faith No More fade at the end.

Thanks! “Faith No More” wow, I hadn’t even thought of them (at least consciously) but yeah, I do remember that fade-out now that I think about it..

sensual and very left-field in concept. I like the the sort-of string quartet mode backing her up…I had an image of a beautiful babe in tri-cornered hat sans garment singing at Tri-na-nog in the lightly falling snow.

Thanks- umm, quite the uh, image you mention there… I never thought a review would make me blush and think of the cause of George Washington’s death at the same time…
