Description
This is a mashup I did of Michael House's "Sunrise to the Stroke of Midnight" and Rik Andreas Beryerre's "Headbone". They were taken from a contest they had both participated in back in October 2006-- I had noticed they were on the same path that I knew they'd go great together, like peanut butter and chocolate. Two short pieces that combined make for a nice long motivating piece.

I added in some of the shakers,wind noise, added the bridge between the two pieces and tooled around with the second half to brighten up the ending.

It was my first attempt at any kind of music production, so I hope you like it.

Very Slick!
Great job, Squirrel... I'm always intrigued when someone else takes a run on something I've created, and this really works. When you mentioned combining Michael's work and mine in the original "Headbone" comments, it prompted me to re-listen to both, and I agreed: it just might work.

Well, good ideas don't always build into good projects (trust me... sigh) but you did a great job here. I certainly can't speak for mvh9591, but your mashup works with the strengths of both pieces and gives each a distinct new vibe. Thanks!

Bt the way... I LOVE the title!

Thanks so much!
Hey, I'm just glad you both like it. The last thing I want to do is cheese the creators off. I'd actually compose some of my own, but between my art and my career-hunting, I just honestly don't have enough time to spend consistently on putting one together. I do however find mashups to be a great comprimise-- they're easier for me to do, and allow me to take up another passion of mine-- sound editing. Now if I can just figure out how to get some of the effects to work better on GB, I'd be golden.

Again, thanks for allowing me to use your awesome half of the song to play together. Frankly, it's a darn miracle I found yours and Michael's in the first place to even think I could pull it off. ^^

In true DJ fashion
Mixing tracks and pulling it off. Well they go really well together, a great mashup. Cannot wait to hear other stuff by you.

Reservations neccessary.
Appreciate the kind words!
I'd like to say I'd get right on working on another piece, but as I said above to Rik (one of the great original composers of this piece), it's going to be a while-- next year at the earliest. I love sound editing, but I'm really focusing on my cartoon art and looking for work in film/tv production-- gotta pay those ridiculous bills.

Still, keep checking back-- I'll have something definitely in 2008.
