Description
This song started as demo I dropped in the apod box about ten days ago. In short order Bryn had created two completely different mixes that sounded very little like the original. Can always count on him for that - and I love it. Then Michael had a go at it and yet another unique take was dropped in the box. I went away for the weekend and when I returned I decided to see what a mash up mix would sound like by dropping their finished tracks into my original GB file. After considerable tweaking and the addition of only one new track (my vocal reversed for the break) here it is. Bryn's track has the denser feel with horns or something like horns - and Michael's is the clearer bell tones heard at the beginning and in the middle section.

bud - guitars, bass, drums, keys, vocals
particledots - blender, synths, pixie dust
michael2 - home made midi sounds most likely, stuff from the yard, sounds only dogs can hear

Here's Michael's version of the song he calls Ghost:

Deep-space dynamics
Neat dynamics between those "clear" and "deep-spacey" tracks. Great drop-out and "rebuild" at the midway. Nice collab, fellers!

This was a fun mix
when I first heard their takes it was hard to hear how they came from the original demo. This made the connections clearer.

impressive.
interesting process the way the three of you put this together. the result is stunning. this is a keeper that will get many listens. great work.
bud said 2197 days ago (August 17th, 2011)
This was never meant to be together
we tend to create multiple versions of songs and post them as apod or individuals. This mash up is a bit different. Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment.

I like this. Great guitars, vocals and sounds. And the drums too! Is that a loop or midi?

And I just adore them sounds only dogs can hear.

The main drums are loops
the drums under Michael's part are likely something he crafted somehow.

This is very cool work my friends ,Kevin the guitar work and bass just so original ,what I like about this track the mix is so balanced in a brilliant way with all these weird sounds in the back ..just way too cool ..thanks a lot for sharing !!

bud said 2197 days ago (August 17th, 2011)
All those weird sounds are
most likely Bryn's mix - the only other weirdness is the backwards vocal I added going into and out of the middle section.

Even better on the second play
This piece is quite impressive and has the flavor of psychedelia that I enjoy. Somehow it feels like it is the beginning of a larger "thing".

thanks for the download :)

I like to combine words that describe my feelings sometimes, hope you don't mind-hehe.

Reminiscent of the doors for me, which sets the mood. Very chilled track you guys have. Your line up of artists always amazes me of what can come about when you find others that love the art as much as you do :)

Thanks for sharing this piece.

wow kevin
sounds excellent. that bass sounds so good with the drums. this is like Sonic Youth in some ways for me. Very beautiful. I really wanted to use the bass part in my mix, but it wasn't working in the sparse context, but it is just ridiculously good in this mix.

Thanks Michael
It was really an experiment at first to see if the three versions were even compatible any longer. Really surprised me how they kept a thread though radically different. We all avoided the pitch and tempo shift this time - except for Bryn's slow alt take.

Freaky,awesome

spooky mix
I love it how there is a suspicion of independent other parts in the background, and somehow it is still coherent. Interesting experiment in collaboration, and great result.

the guitar
intro grabbed me immediately, and I'm a fan of the spacey vocals. I liked the volume swells a lot as well -- kept me interested. I got a bit tired of the bass after a while and started to crave something fuzzier/dirtier, but that might just be due to me being part of the 'dubstep generation.' Really great piece...I'll probably download it.
