Great, orgiastic way to deal with the pella…this is a feast!

I wonder if I should tag this series “orgiastic” :) I hope nobody labels this as Hentai, LOL. Thanks for the encouragement, Hans. BTW, I’ve downloaded several of your remixes. I like your electronica-pop-rock arrangements. Subscribed!

Ivan, you rock! I have a thing for robotic women. Check my “Robot Girlfriend” reading. Great use of the samples, making for a muscular mix.

I missed that upload of yours. Cool. The stems and the various remixes of it certainly has a place in my (imaginary) Anime series. Perhaps a subplot of a slightly stressed out office executive, who wants to drop everything and go to moon with his new robot girlfriend. :)

Glad you liked this version. I would have thought it’ll be boring, since it’s essentially unchanged from the Torque remix. BTW, just to give you a heads-up — I intend to star your very excellent “ Prism in the Ether” in yet another non-existent Anime film, tentatively titled “Trouble in Neo-Nagasaki”. :)

Thanks for the heads-up. I’ll definitely be interested in hearing how you mix the Prism. You should send some of your ideas to various Anime producers :)

Robot women’s eyes pop out and dangle on springs at inappropriate moments. That’s what I’ve heard. xxxx

I’ll aim for 1,000 for Part III :)

Excellent track, CC. Really enjoyed listening and would be perfect for a scifi film. What is love, anyway? xxxx

[edit: no, wait… that might be sympathy that you’ve giving, LOL]

I remember when I heard this pella for the first time thinking it was quirky and light.

With the staccato bass, pads, and rollicking guitars, you’ve transformed it into a work of powerful angst. Now that’s a powerful thing to do in a remix!

Come to think of it, ghg’s lyrics already had that angsty bits. I suppose love always has that hidden undertone, like “light and dark”, “day and night”, “war and peace”. Maybe that’s also saying that behind every trash-metal rocker (not that I’m one) is a saccharine-coated poet, heh. Thanks for listening and comment, Richard.

Hi Ivan - re the question in the title - if they didnt, they do now! agree with the admiral that you take the sugary vocal and make something with an edge.

Quote: urmymusere the question in the title - if they didnt, they do now!Heh, good one :) I was thinking of Philip K. Dick’s seminal work, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” when thinking of a suitable title. After I posted the track, I wanted to re-title it “Do Avatars Fall In Love”, cos that’s more consistent with the current social media world. But guess I’m too much of a Bladerunner fan.

Ivan, I LOVE what you did here!!! Totally rockin’ which maintaining the sweetness of grayhartgray’s voice — I could easiy see her singing this with exaggerated eyes in a sailor suit. This is fantastic and exciting!

Thanks, Susan! A psychotic Sailor Moon? LOL

This is badass Ivan, and my favorite of the series. I think it brings together all the themes in the series!
permalink   Ivan Chew Sun, Aug 1, 2010 @ 10:14 AM
Heh, thanks for following the show :)

Great work. Seems the perfect music for an anime shot.
permalink   Ivan Chew Tue, Sep 14, 2010 @ 11:24 AM
Heh, I am now waiting for someone out there to use it in an anime clip. Or until such time technology (and copyrights) allows me to create my own anime movie on my own. Thanks for listening and the comment!
