It’s a lot like a broken clock being right twice a day. Listen long enough and you will find a bar or two to your liking depending on your sonic perception and state of mind.

Finally, somebody remixes snowflake! ;)

This is a great example of Speck artistry. You are insane, dude.

This is one of my favourite things in music - placing one track against another and giving it the time to make something unexpected.

Interesting how the shift makes a blue track drama.
I would take a bet this will be taken into movies.
Excellent idea - simple and effective.

I am enthralled by the layering — a purist I am not. This is profoundly impactful. And I’m so grateful you’ve remixed my piano — I first played this song when I was 11 years old and it has always had great meaning for me. As I listen, I go to another place, a place that doesn’t use words to describe feelings. So, it is difficult for me to share with you the impact your creativity has had on me this morning. But know this, I am grateful for this gift you’ve given me, and the role you play not only at ccMixter, but in my own life. Thank you for being you. For expanding my vision. And for giving so much to us all. Peace.

This track proves I’m no purist.

Excellent idea. I also like to add layers. It usually gives unexpected and satisfactory results. It has been very gratifying to listen to the remix. I sometimes convert to midi and then change the instrumentation. This remix can be very suitable to it. I do not promise anything, but I have it in possible remixes.I repeat, great remix.

If moonlight Sonata was created to evoke a certain mood, you’ve exploded it into expressing so much more. Order, Discord, peace, urgency, frustration, harmony.. It’s a very cool treatment

I could never come up with an idea like that. An avantgard version of this old classic. Very nice!!

Did Beethoven ever descend to madness? If he did this is his medical record. Awesomeness

After awhile I found myself listening to this in a background-ish way and was absorbing it as a Steve Reich/John Cage/Vladimir Cosma mashup. Very cool - like very much.

Captivating… I feel pulled in many directions… a familiar theme at the heart… but there is so much surrounding the familiar. Know what? In a way, this piece feels how I often do in my brain… only instead of forcing the familiar, the playful creativity is let loose. Excellent.

The “broken clock being right twice a day” comment cracked me up.

Okay, it’s not Ornette time. More like Antonín Dvořák putting dissonance on da Moonlight.

Free form dissonance reminds me of my college daze when we wanted the party all night folks to go home. We’d put on a Coltrane record. Yep, we only had record albums or reel to reel tape in stoned age.

Smart intelligent, compelling with a speck of levity.
