Syzygy II w/VicDiesel


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
i dl'd Vic's original song to do a personal 'expansion' of it and he was kind enough to send me the original stems for better quality. now, it's *extremely* hard for me to have stems in my daw and not mix. so i added a bit to the original and created a new mix. I asked Vic if it was ok to go ahead with it and he obliged, so here it is.

VicDiesel: flutes (of course!), drone
me: acoustic guitars and misc sounds

Friday is a perfect night for a magic carpet ride through a dessert. Nicely done.

hey Adrew. it was even a cosmic ride to do, i just got into it. Vic sent me the stems yesterday and i completed the mix today. i think that's a record for me. good to hear from you.

what's a syzygy?
To me it was "obvious" that my flute part could only be a slow meditative track. Imagine my surprise when Sam turned it into this. A somewhat more overwhelming approach than mine.....

Still, even this version has a bit of a new age / hippy drum circle / recreative chemical / mind expanding atmosphere. So they are cosmically related.

Much enjoyed!

alignment of 3 planets
this one just flowed, i have to say. i started and didn't want to stop. fits the 'alignment' theme, i suppose. nothing like working with real instruments played by a real person. thanks much for the experience, i enjoyed every minute of it.

yeah, that was some mesmerizing stuff. grabbed me immediately too. i'm listening to the original now and don't even recognize it in my version. the wonders of pitch and time stretching.

that'll show ya: never leave me unattended with strips of sound layered in my daw. good or bad, it will somehow become altered.
hope i can still ask for some guitar "strips" from you some time.

I lover the sounds in this - it certainly has an "out there" feel. The flutes provide the spookiness, the drums are insistent, the other sounds take it all to another planet. I like what you've done here, Sammy (and of course Vic for the central elements).

the beats were supposed to the percussive equivalent of the drone. i think is just about successful as such (ha). i glad you enjoyed the 2 min, interstellar tour.

This evokes dusty desert landscapes and quests for meaning. It's a beautiful way to celebrate Sam's return to active duty. Number One with a bullet, and a marimba.

That's cool!
Pretty spacey, but it keeps that rhythmic push forward...forward.... There's a subtle build until about 1:38 when it seems like it's about to fly apart. Good trip, man.

Superb.
Both parties involved in this should be proud of their contributions, it's a nicely layered mix that works supremely well. Fine playing on that flute of course, but what's been added is also very nicely composed.

journey!
Beautiful backdrop to an imagined journey. The added percussion and drone create a flow that could continue for another 5 minutes and Vic's flute playing sounds as beautiful as ever. Great post.

Cosmic metamorphosis...
Indeed. East meets west. I hear this at twilight when the day doesn't know it's night and vice versa. Lots of sounds and imagery colliding, but very pleasantly so. I really enjoy this little number, but wish it were about half again as long. Interesting how such disparate elements can congeal in such a satisfying way.
