Wonderful, completely wonderful. I love when you take this experimental direction. The progression is perfect, it’s really like a dream, a ccMixter dream..great job..

Hey, quite the journey! I enjoyed it, never knowing where the next turn was taking me- the ending is perfect.

That was cool, really dreamy. It must have been difficult two, stitching all that madness together.

One thing I love about remix culture is the way in which we participate not only in the act of creation but also in the heady art of assemblage. I like the remixes which are Cornell-box reflections of ideas about our culture, our musical heritage and the inner workings of our minds.

The secret to the collage-mix is not only in the tweak of knob and mouse, but also in the mental ear (as well as the ear for pitch and tempo). Where the eagles gather in this world of sound and scissortailed samples, there is the apostolic and universal opportunity to participate in this sharing culture.

You came to us with a great deal of musical and mixing skill,so that you’re not one of those, like myself, who has to learn from scratch as I (or rather, you) go. Yet I like that you never hesitate to show us your experiments, your finesses’, your uncertainties, and your steps into unknown and rewarding terraces.

I’ve enjoyed your music very much, and I’m grateful to be included in this recap of how the mixter works.

I am not given to worry about such things often, but once in a while it occurs to me that my preferred musics are less in evidence on this site than other genres that, though wonderful, are rarely the genres I seek out. This is very good for me, as I have learned a lot about musics I do not make.

This mix, though, teaches me that there is a great deal more synchrony among a number of different voices—if I but listen, and continue to mix in. Thanks for posting this whimsical mix, and for being part of ccmixter.

Thanks for the kind words - in fact I’d never done any real mixing before discovering ccM, so this mix was a way of saying thanks to some of the inspiring talent here - it’s been a hugely pleasurable year of learning and playing around for me.

And thanks to everyone else for the feedback!

I like it! A sort of John Cage-ish, eclectic mix of fine music put together by one of my faves.

A wonderful and sensitive tribute to your time on cc.mixter - well crafted and fun to listen to. On a personal level I have enjoyed and am honored by every one of the collaborations we have participated in. Thanks.

Very clever use of the samples that make them blend together but still have that edgy feel about them.

It’s always a pleasure to hear anything form the creative mind of OD, and this is exceptional work.
