Did you ever hear a giraffe sing? Neither have I. But I imagine that if a giraffe could sing, she would sing a down-tempo melody like this, well-suited to keeping one’s feet well-rooted while one reaches for the leaves on the heights.

I like the melody and the way it builds to a swell of sound. A few of the mix sound levels seem a bit uneven to me, but that is probably a matter of one’s own taste in seasonings. The spoken word pieces and vocals are given a rich environment, like reaching the sweet leaves on the top of the thin but ominous tree.

Giraffes? Interesting analogy, also slightly nefarious, as I’m now unable to hear the song without imagining a herd of crooning giraffes ;)

You did make some good observations that I will consider in future arrangements. Thanks for the review!

It is a bit insidious, now that you mention it—I was going for unexpected and yet reaching for the top, but now, you’re right, crooning giraffes. :). Sorry :).

This is so very, very nice — dreamy, soothing — the beginning with the perfect sounds as I end my day with some pre-dream listening, while the end reminds us that dreams sometimes take unexpected turns. I really like how you worked with our voices. Thank you so much for including me. A very lovely mix indeed!

Glad you enjoyed! Thanks again for your vocals and also your other contributions to ccMixter. I’ve only recently discovered this site but it’s really been an amazing creative inspiration.
