Sombre, yes, but a new Monkees single wasn’t what I shooting for when I wrote this- riveting, keeps you glued to the spot even when you think you know what’s around the next bend- divides the total time of the pella beautifully- Thanks for such a understated yet powerful piece; hearing this made my night!

Phew! - always nice to get the OK from vocalists.

Your track is more than a pella IMO - it’s real poetry, so I tried to leave it centre stage and just play with different colours in the sound.

I’m still sorta surprised at what a positive response I’ve gotten from this upload- I always liked the introspective “thought ballon” aspect of kcentric’s “Guilty By Association”, and SuziQ’s stuff reminded me that intensity and emotion in poetry shouldn’t be shied away from- so I sat down and wrote this specifically for ccmixter. I was a huge fan of Joe Frank’s “Work In Progress” series, and that influence shows too-
Thanks so much again!

Wow, thanks J! After your superb remix of “Marionette Man”, I knew you weren’t afraid of poetry, but I figured maybe you weren’t really digging the upload- thanks for the compliment!

The poem is definitely very touching with your music to emphasize it. In fact, I’m a bit jealous of the emotion you manage to convey…

This sounds like it should be an editor’s pick to me! In any case, I think it’s really representative of the ccMixter magic at work. Where else could you listen to something like this?

That’s really kind of you (and I’m flattered that your jealous!)

I think your work is unusual too, and I agree about the Mixter-magic - it makes unexpected connections happen.

ok, 2 months late but this is really, really great. obviously. I’ve tried to do this kind of thing so many times it’s embarrassing and you’ve just nailed it.

I see what you mean with respect to Duckett’s poem. You put it center stage, just where it deserves to be, and then put a beautiful, atmospheric backdrop behind it.

I also listened to your Goodbye Sooner Or Later track (I have just discovered Trifonic thanks to DJ Rkod) and that sounds damn fine too. It looks like I have to check out the rest of your stuff too.
