Prepared Piano (re-mix)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I posted this yesterday and decided that it needed a little something, so I remixed a bit. most of the changes are the ending. i got rid of the fade out (as per rsorensen's advice) and now it ends with everything dropping out and the vocal ending the song with reverse reverb on it. is this better or more self indulgent?

now don't touch a thing
I think the revisions work out great. it's not a self indulgent thing. I'm always into reverse effecting and i think the end effect came out great.

i guess this makes # 101?

excellent work bro

don't know what you tweaked from first mix overall but this mix is a definite spot on the mark. very cool flow ... percussion drives where it should ... and you are using your voice as an instrument .. very powerful and then that wall of sound!! ending is brilliant .... damn michael .. is cool indeed!

Backwards effects, I always like that. Remembered this 100. I'll have to dl and compare, but I remember the other one being so good.

Great job Michael,

love this! i think the ending works much better in this version. at the same time, tho, this comes across to me as sounding a little more like radiohead/thom yorke for whatever reason. but that's certainly not a bad thing. :)

cheerz,

In your case
There is both quality and quantity.....If you can't indulge yourself, how can you indulge anyone else. You're one of the most creative around this joint. Regards

self-indulgence
well, if you were, I don't think anyone minds...

but anyway, it turned out to be apropos. I always think the reverse reverb sounds like someone being born, and this being about your daughter, and how she in turn makes you come alive, it's fitting.

Again, I just want to say this is fantastic, the playfulness and indulgence with sound experimentation somehow express real emotion, however artificial the sound may be. that's why I'm a fan of bands like radiohead and experimental msuci, b/c they make human sounds out of machines. it's fascinating to me!
