Detective examining the crime scene alone after hours while the perpetrator lurks :)

I think that was the theme of the source track, so yes :-). Thank you.

Something for a night type of film in a suburban or post industrial area. Very cool. I’d add some field recording to that too, maybe from an abanadoned factory.

Ooh, I wish I had thought of that. I rec’d a recording of a rail yard that I loved. You got it though. Thanks Doxent.

I’d rather not lurk around that corner… great tension-filled, mysterious mix!

Thank you Kara. Me neither :-).

i love the details of your intro. Dante’s Inferno indeed (it has inspired many a song in my years). this is deeply mysterious and certainly film worthy. i love the patience in your production — it gives the space to truly create a foreboding suspense. your description of hell is brilliant. great mix

Thank you Emily. I have to reply to everyone who has been kind enough to comment but I had to get to you first. The thing you might find amusing is that the first plan, although way too ambitious, was to do a 21st Century retelling of the entire Divine Comedy, just heavily abridged. You were cast as Beatrice to guide me through Paradiso :-). I don’t think you’ll have to work too hard to think of who the voice of Virgil was going to be… But alas I have kids to yell at so it is not to be…

Get my kids to do their homework and my dishes to do themselves and you may get closer :-).

Your sound manipulation skills are good let me tell you! Quite the moody and lingering soundscape that would make any space that little bit darker. The soundtrack to an uncertain walk through dark woods. Wonderbar!

High praise from a master such as yourself, Sir. Thank you very much indeed.

Dark and delicious

Thank you very much for working on my tracks! I like the mix. Really a dark atmosphere. I’m courious to listen the other one you’r working on… :)

Thank you for the great source material. The next mix will be awhile. I’m a slow composer.

No hurry :) I’m slow too…

Fantastic work E.! I was disappointed when it ended, literally exclaiming to myself, “Is that it? Seriously?” Totally compelling. The pacing is perfect. And I agree with Emily — your description of hell is apt. Thanks so much for being part of this secret mixter — it’s nice to see you ‘round.

Sorry about that. The ending was a bit abrupt. If you hit the little triangle thingy on the page it will play it again ;-). Thank you for listening and for your words of ongoing welcome. This project has been fun to be a part of. Thanks for all your hard work up in the home office :-).

Who Dunnit..Guess Essesq did it ;-)
permalink   essesq Sun, Nov 16, 2014 @ 6:28 PM
Yes, because as we all know anyone can :-). Thanks for listening.

So this is what would happen when a mistress of words would be disallowed to use them. Fear not, since she can still make her point! Or maybe be better in the context of this remix: be afraid - very afraid!

Thank you Spinmeister. I wasn’t disallowed my words, just wanted to dust off my sound production skills a little. I really enjoy making music but I do need a good excuse to set aside the time to do so :-).

Admiral Bob hit it 100% - thats what is in my mind when I listen to the track. Made for movies.

It is dark, clearly arranged. Limitation in sound(s) is not a worse thing ( I own way tooo much of them and mostly get lost in it). Letting the listener hear the details without overwhelming with sound layers is an important thing while writing a score or just an atmospheric track for instance…..
