Evolver (Billy Kirsch remix feat mystified)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Billy put his tune Evolver up as an open collaboration a few weeks ago so I thought I would have a go and see what I could do with it

Here is the result featuring vocals from mystified (originally recorded for 'don't lie to me' by sonicmagpie)

Billy supplied the acoustic guitar tracks and a simple metronomic pulse

I altered the metronomic pulse and made it the basis of a simple heartbeat like rhythm track. I added some cello sounds and some extra classical guitar noises. I played a percusive synthy/organ-like motif in the background which came from the Albino 3 synth. I time stretched Cat's vocals too - beyond recognition (retaining the quality of her voice but making what she was singing unrecognizable).

Of course, I slowed the whole thing down in time and pitch....

So here is a very different sounding 'Evolver' - I think this could easily be a companion piece to my own Electric Morricone

Thanks for letting me devolve Evolver Billy - it was great fun to do

Beautiful & Haunting
Love the bowed strings particularly. The pitch change adds some nice depth to the guitar track.

strangely effected
The cello and organ lines are great in here. Not so sure of the stretched vox in this case, they seemed incongruous, perhaps too loud in the mix? But the rest of it was an intriguing direction for this great piece.
ttfn,

i was wondering about the voice being too loud myself as well
pity i cant go back and turn it down a bit as far as this posted version goes - maybe i'll try another mix soon

Your subtle touch is all over this
love the pacing and attention to detail in the background. I've learned to listen deep on these pieces - and it always pays off. Nice companion to EM.

You got the simple raw notes and mashed, fermented, decanted and distilled them to make a very different piece of music. This is incredible.
I didn't notice the click track was used in the background.
Sounds like a distant ghost train in the foggy night. Percussive touches of synths like drops falling. The fretted bass notes sound so heavy at this pitch, vibrating deep, creating tension. The intoxicated guitar walks slowly in the mud trying to find the way out. Then it seems there's an happy ending. But we are not sure.

the simple raw notes were pretty damn good to begin with

Very Courageous
move, stretching audio at times could render unwanted results.
However a very clean mix, and creativeness is evident . . .

This is hauntingly beautiful! Love how the vocal samples are unrecognizable. This reminds me of Four Tet's stuff. Great job!

you are a genius. i can't even begin to fathom how your brain works, but i love what it comes up with. is it odd that this feels like a soundtrack to a dark western? tumbleweeds, ghost towns, the last of the frontier heroes. i love what you've done with cat's vocals. very cool ambient effect in the setting of the entire piece. it definitely has an "atmosphere" about it. so incredibly cool bryn.
