finished…

- some grants

- a large book

- a remix

I can only prove one of these things to you. Here’s the tune.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

It was a lot of fun to do, and very cool to get to hear all the individual tracks to this beautiful tune. Hear the original and buy the awesome record here.

Also, here’s what wikipedia says about remixes -

A remix is an alternative version of a song, different from the original version. This name is also used for any alterations of medias other than a song (film, literature etc.).

A remixer uses audio mixing to compose an alternate master recording of a song, adding or subtracting elements, or simply changing the equalization, dynamics, pitch, tempo, playing time, or almost any other aspect of the various musical components. Some remixes involve substantial changes to the arrangement of a recorded work, but many are harmonic, such as creating a “vocal up” version of an album cut that emphasizes the lead singer’s voice.

Sounds about right. In this case I did a lot of cutting of some sections, and moving some things around to get it into a shape I thought may work. Not saying it’s better then the original by any means, just a different take on things, an alternate reality. Christine and Daffyd’s music lends itself really well to remixing because of the amount of space they leave, very thoughtful music. Then I come bulldozing in with a reverb/ambiance/percussion hose and get it all dirty.

Headed back out east Thursday for some David Myles and some hiding out in LaHave.

One thought on “finished…

  1. [...] Josh Van Tassel remixed one of my tunes! I still need to figure out how to put mp3s up here, so for now you can check out the remix on Josh’s blog. I’ll have it up here next week. [...]
