Wow- “beautiful voice”? You sure made my very-early-Thursday-morning!
I’d be delighted if you used it…

That remix? I didn’t send any bottles of wine, and you still came up w/ something special…

Hey, I featured your verse in the Christmas episode of Sundown Lounge no. 124. Cool…

clearly spoken from the soul of a poet….

That is a very beautiful text, and the quality of your voice really makes it incredible. In fact, I often add effects to spoken words in my electro mixes, but I really felt it would have been a waste for this one.

Given the overall sound quality, it’s just a shame there’s some saturation on the first word!! :)

Anyway, it’s definitely one of the most touching poems on this site.

Very nice Duckett, I enjoyed working with your poem.

…and I very much enjoyed what you did with it! As I’ve already said, thanks for putting up on “that other site” too…

Great poem and a great delivery. I have already said so over at MI7 at Audiotechnica’s profile page and I will say it again: you have the perfect voice for reciting poetry. I would love to do something with this poem, but Audiotechnica’s take on it is already so good that I am hesitant to give it a try myself.

Quote: Subliminal I am hesitant to give it a try myself.
…Please! You can’t help but give listeners yet another unique interpretation- If it helps, listen to all the remixes of it in a row; I’ve found that useful in keeping a remix I might favor from determining the direction my own might take… but no matter what you do, it will still be yours, unless you attempt to slavishly re-create the sound of another. I’ve been highly inspired by others’ remixes myself, and since I’d never claim to be the firstest and bestest remixer in town, I just go where the inspiration takes me, and hope others enjoy what it is I’m going for, amateur though I may be. Thanks for all the nice words, I might put up some more spoken-word stuff, since people seem to think it’s okay…

Well, I have already downloaded it. It is too good not to give it a try and it would make a fine addition to my Orpheus In Hell project.
