Thank you for picking this up RT. I don’t think many spoken word pieces are easy to fit to a musical background that has a definite structure unless the vocalist can keep to a rhythm track (I haven’t yet).

To be honest, I just put this up as a bit of inspiration for it’s own sake, not with a prayer of seeing it remixed. I am filled with a sense of gratitude for so many things right now that the appearance of buds on my nearly dead rose just seemed a manifestation of this multiplicity of miracles.

As for your garden..remember always what my horticulturist husband tells me…a weed is just a plant growing somewhere you don’t want it. The weed is not bad, perhaps it just made a bad choice as to where to set down roots :-).

No weeds here! Sounds like all sounds were intentionally planted in this track. Great use of Essesq’s poem. I love spring!

I included this wonderful spoken word mix in the latest episode of The Mixin’ Kitchen (“Tell Me”), one of the programs featured on the ccMixter podcast channel.

much pith & humor in essesq”s poem & a highly unexpected asian sergio leone thing goin’ on in the BT. great listening & great fun. and it all fits nicely like the bushy wild things in an english garden.

I like.

BTW - I think you forgot an attribution - there’s a melody that plays in the background I recognize from this track, but is probably from the sample pool.

Nice work.

I can’t remember what I did last week, but somehow have a good music memory. And that’s the part that pays exactly zero of my bills, so there you go. Life’s little ironies and whatnot. :)

The lush funky rainforest groove fits really well with the staccato spoken word.

Terrific combination of things going on here, rt, making a thoroughly enjoyable aural wander through the undergrowth.
