Im working on something here right now.. so be patient please hehehe… Im not so skilled as many ppl here… So it takes me a lot of time to do a remix… besides that, I dont have a lot of time free.. but I think more than a lack of time the problem is Im too slow hehehe But I will try to finish my composition this week… U have to teach me some of ur secrets man!!! hehe

It’s good to hear that the cold hasn’t got to your creativity and productivity. Another great piece. A dark atmosphere with impressive production skills. And thanks to LS for his request.

Ahhh, man, that “all ten thousand of me” and the entrance of the drums SO had me pumping my fist on the inside, as did the rest of this track. A wonderful mix, interesting and unusual - you know, I seem to recall writing these words before! Excellent as per usual!

a truly beautiful and, i think, cinematic approach to Anchor’s spoken word. would suggest anyone who enjoys this looking into emily’s other poems. she is a major (living) poet.

Will do.. Thanks Panu Moon

Oooh this is nice’ I love that undulating bass and the little string stabs—-nice little details on the vocals as well—-like that fading swing from rope to ropeto rope

Thanks Sir! (glad you picked up on the rope to rope bit, i like that too ).

I agree with all of the above. Beautiful production - nice and crisp with all individual elements clear.

I would love to hear a few additional (or repeated) vocal elements in the second half - used as a rhythmic element - but that’s just a wishlist thing. The core idea is terrific, and I just wish it was longer. :)

Thanks Colab. Good idea regarding the vocal elements in the second half. It does repeat so that would be a nice touch of difference to the first half.

Longer hey, see what I can do :o). Ever heard Dream Theater’s track ‘six degrees of inner turbulence’?
42 minutes long :-)

Great production full of drive that takes the mix by the throat and gives it a really good shaking!

The vocal treatments blend so well with the backing track and give this a wonderful feel.

One of the best interpretations of Anchors vocals I have heard here.

Thanks RT, thats quite a compliment

quite cinematic…this is industrial audio imagery at it’s finest

You are on a roll lately mister! Really nice and dense and richly textured. Nicely fills the headphone space and very well produced. Great backing for Anchor’s reading.

I wish my kids would do what i ask of them.

The down side of your tracks is that i keep on hearing possible vocal lines for them and go off to write something losing valuable time when i should be working on other stuff.

Ah well we will see. :-)

Still waiting for the day I get to work with your vox again Mr Shadow…

Exquisite frosty industrial cinema for the ears indeed!

Coming over here for remixes of the recent past that I missed, I am deeply impressed by this terrific soundscape. You are doing all styles with exquisite taste and skills. A great idea with very cool sounds!!
