A good story/context is always why I enjoy listening to your mixes. I’ve got a feral himalayan cat who frequents the alley behind my house. I’ve been trying to get it to come to me for months to no avail. cats are great but notoriously independent.

Himalyans are lovely. It’s so hard to get a feral cat to come in from the cold.

Whoa - I missed this one somehow, but glad I stumbled back on it.

I do think you give AT terrific justice here. I see clear traces of both of you in here, and it’s a delight.

It is a bit of a merger of the two sounds, though if AT had done it, it would have had a really cool beat and a more vivid mix!

Hey Gordonark—-this is a real treat for me to be mixed by you. Your music is so very different from mine and I’m so pleased that I got someone that would take my samples in an entirely different direction. Thank you so much—

Thank you very much! You do such gifted work that I know I can’t do your work justice, but I am grateful for the chance to try.

I like the dreaminess about it, the sublte melody on the piano, it almost like watching an artist paint a landscape. Using rich hues and coluor the transforms the canvas, reflects light and beauty. Lovely piece.

Thanks! I love fingerpaints, myself, but when i have nice brushes like these samples, it’s easier to paint.

i’m not sure how i missed this mix in my sunday listen, but wow. your mystical sound brush takes me into a monet painting of soft color and vibrant imagery. this is just beautiful!

Thanks for such kind words. I really enjoyed finding a path for this one, as my first tries were less Monet than stickfigure.

Once again I am transfixed and impressed by your imagination and creativity, and absolutely delighted by your description! I love the work of both you and audiotechnica and to have you paired in this was is just a magic moment for me! Bravo!
