yes, sir! a beautiful treatment of this beautiful spoken word piece. at high vol the vocal is slightly indistinct, but still effective. at very low volume (my preference) it is like listening to the ‘voice’ inside. very, very nicely done.

Sometimes musicians can spend hours on tracks and not achieve much. At other times what appears to be a throw away piece can end up as something special. I once worked on a film track which included a song where the vocalist was struggling. In the end the producer telephoned a singer he knew who had just arrived from New York. The singer agreed to stop by and give it one take as he was on a promotional tour and had no more time. That one take was enough.

This example of yours goes to prove the point. Simple but nicely effective.

totally mesmerizing - I just hope there aren’t any posthypnotic suggestions hidden in there!

I find myself not listening to the vocal but the backing.

In fact its so mesmerising that i wish she would just shut up :-)

Thanks LS. I’m surprised at the response already, this was a total through away track?!?

Beautiful track, but like LS i’m more into the backing track than the vocals.
Job well done Scott.

Before you throw any tracks away, make sure send them all to me. :-)

Hey Thanks man - It makes you think though. The mixes we throw away, are they really that bad?… Maybe other people need to be the judge!

Got to agree in one way about the backing track, right up my street that sound….mind you the vocals do give it a little bit more…

Nice track

This is a very well done job Scott… as always hehehe..

I think that more musical spaces between some of the verses in the voice could help… but that’s my humble opinion…

Anyways it is a very sweet, and calm mix… good job!

Hey man, Did you read my description?… This was never really meant to be an upload, it was a test track that I discarded a while back but I like to keep consistent in my ccMixter postings so I threw this one up. There’s not a chorus here (its spoken word), so the structure is kind of a wierd A B A.

You always stop by and post a few words / express your opinion and I value everyones opinion, so I’m pleased you’ve spent the time to post a review :-)

Ohhh Ok… Sorry… sometimes I dont find the right words to explain my ideas in english… When I say verses I was speaking about certain quantity of words together, not meaning this has a song-like structure.

Anyway I really like ur job, I follow it! Listening to ur tracks I have learned a lot of “tricks” that I have put (in my own and personal way hehe) into my mixes.

To hear ur mixes is always a nice experience…for me.

No need to explain dude, I always look forward to a Wellman review

fascinating. Can’t wait to see what else gets excavated from your private trove!
Sometimes its interesting to witness/hear process rather than a finished project. This still stands on it own - regardless.
