I love the way you’ve layered this, MCJack, and it’s always a joy to hear Melody’s voice. But most of all I love that gorgeous b/t from your archive. xxxx

I wish I had an archive like yours. That backing track is very very good and those pellas add an extra edge to it. One of the best things I have heard from you. Splendid!

edit: Ok, so it seems that I do have an archive like yours. ;-)

This will seem like a weird review, but this is like a classical orchestral piece in some ways. You’ve got three distinct movements - the impassioned spoken word, the radio broadcast piece, and the two combined for a desperate last salvo… and then it quiets down for the last little bit.

It gives this the same kind of motion as a composition, so you have to listen to the whole thing. :)

nice catch. the backing track by rjmarshall has the TTS (text to speech) vocal embedded in it, so I couldn’t really extract it and had to kind of work both SQS and CSM around it. The SQS pella had a nice cut to work with and the CMS was also easy to cut up. When I listened to what the TTS was actually saying, it really tied in with the implied angst that SQS was feeling in her pella (her man is going to prison for a long time…i think). the TTS stuff, at least for me, conveyed the distance, the emotionless void of a prison, where you talk through a phone to your loved ones. so in the end, even though i wasn’t big on the TTS in the original track, i think it kind of worked in the context i recreated for it.
