This is just … fantastic. Profound music for a profound speech. Meditative, reflective, intelligent. The mix highlights the speech very nicely, presenting a trip through philosophical space. The end is particularly effective, like waking up after drifting through a lucid dream. I cannot say enough good things about this contribution to the site!!

One of the things which is refreshing about having parts of your mix taken is that they no longer belong to you in a sonic sense after spending so much time working with them in their original form.
Its like finding you have a long lost brother and meeting them for the first time . There is a sense of the familiar, but you dont really know them.
Nice mix, but this rapper guy you have found here is worse than me. Possibly add a few `yos’ and sync it up better and it might fly. :-)
You are so yesterday … electronically generated (as opposed to manipulated) vocals are the wave of the future. No longer will mixters have to put up with artists who think that their voices are so unique. Who complain that their melodies have been manipulated with Melodyne and pitch shifted out of their natural range. No Professor Hawking is all about the ideas and not the voice, and at least his rhythm is very uniform, I’m sure it sat very well in the sequencer. Hearing him say “Yo” would probably cause a wrinkle in the fabric of time. And I really hate the thought of him delivering lectures in a backwards baseball hat ;-).
I would accept your view if you could prove yesterday existed but you cant there is only probability that it did.
As for your wave theory well its collapsed as they all do, and what amplitude would that wrinkle be ? No i think there is a great deal of uncertainty in your principle here.
And as my maths teacher used to say, `if you dont want it all to go over your head, stand taller :-)

“A black hole has no hair”… and this remix has no flies on it, either :-)

Very cool production Teru. I like this a lot. There were a few times I was frustrated at trying to capture both the music and the exact words of the text as I wanted to engage my mind with both. There is something about every time I encounter Dr. Hawking (whether in text or just audio or on TV, when my mind says “Ok now you have to think hard ;-)” and this was no exception.
I think you did a great job setting this discussion to music. Have you e-mailed the good Professor to let him have a listen? I’m sure he would find it rather intriguing.
I think there is a recent trend on the site to get people doing more than just listening, this is becoming more and more a forum for ideas as well as music and lord knows we need more such places where people are not afraid to consider their place in the world and their philosophies of life. Hats off to you Teru, very fine work indeed.

In an age where beauty and image are all important on the public stage Dr Stephen Hawking has shown that the real messages will always come from within. For those who will give the time to listen the experience is usually worth that time.
Your mix is a great example of simplicity plus soul produces great beauty.

Speak and spell! yeah!
Love the beat on this and the rush / wave sample used to bring the deep pads in is genious. Was holding out for some melodic arpegio ambience towards the end… non, but still didn’t disapoint, just gives one idea’s for mixing this great cut… spot on dreamy mix. ‘Cranks and Wierdo’s”… classic.

You sir have the possibility of a very bright future composing “bumps and sweeps” for the Discovery Channel. It pays quite well, I’m told. And is a job I, my ownself, would not mind havin.
