Well - sometimes just an addition can change or redefine a track more than transplanting heavy patches on it.
The shakuhachi is a very nice contrast to the pure electronic robot track and at the same time it is a wonderful amalgam that is sounding convincingly great

Well, so it turns out that robots can play shaku just very poorly and it’s very clicky :-) great track and great playing. I played a Ryo Noda piece on saxophone transcribed from a shakuhachi piece whilst I was in uni and it was by far the hardest piece I had ever played. This is a great exploration of contrast and counterpoint. Remix? Indeed.
Cheers!

Takes it in cool new ethereal direction. More cyborg than robot now!
