Such a well integrated piece, Rev. I especially liked the guitar swells, the crescendoing. And Melissa fits right in there, perfectly. Cool, reminds me of Zappa’s Jazz from Hell stuff.

thanks for the review norelpref - look forward to listening again with this in mind (and I’ll rent some Zappa next time I’m at the library).

A very insistent mix, with a real driving force. I think it’s a challenge to integrate the vocals into the mix, but you really try to work it in together. It’s cool what you’re able to do with your remix machine. It’s all a bit too insistent for me, in the long run, and I’d like to hear gentler breaks, somehow, but I’m not sure how, so I only mention the notion.

hi gurdonark,
thanks very much for the review
insistent is a good way to describe the sound - I think it comes from stitching together “full” loops (no tracks muted) - if I brought things in (and out) more gradually I think it would have a different sound. This (and my last few remixes) have been stitch jobs due to lack of time and energy (my young lady acapella artist sees to that!). While “doing” the evolutionary remix machine for several hours, it sounds like a stitch job too (check out the evolutionary remix radio to get an idea of this), so I get used to the insistent sound.

I decided to stretch out the vocals rather than repeat them a few times. Any comments?

thanks again for the review!

thanks Morr - I guess I have listened to a lot of MAW in my time. (You may not have delved into my methods, but it’s all random to start with and then I select what I think sounds good, and the music evolves after several hours. You spotting some of my major influences is quite interesting.)

Now if only we could get India to lay some vocals down for ccMixter… that would really rock

‘Future Jazz’ is right, great stuff.

thanks very much - it’s one of my better/more appropriately named tracks!

I just listened again to it and I still like it, so that must be a good thing :-)

always nice to hear feedback from the real musicians involved, whatever the delay…

check out the email notification options in ccMixter, I rarely check the site without first getting a notification email.
