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