Description
This is a track that Skean/Kenta wrote a couple of months back. http://www.macjams.com/song/45724
He was kind enough to let me add some guitars and my own take on the theme, which has me now sitting at home more and more with less work coming my way. I suppose the inspiration comes from Zeitgeist - The Movie - Addendum which you can watch free on google, if you have not seen it, it is worth a watch!
The track arrived with 30 separate files which i diced and sliced to suit, i hope you don't mind Kenta.
Spent a lot of time on this, i hope you enjoy it. I have decided to use just the Yamaha for this, but i still can not get the sound right.

intense
the guitars (and there sounds like a slew of them) really add to the mix. Not sure what "sound" you were hoping for but the ones I hear here, are all killer. Perhaps my favorite being that distorted wah at around the 2:22 mark. Its all good :-), but hey where's my picture! I think I always look forward to your song art as much as your music.

A dense and emotive mix. Love how it starts out with an ambient groove and ends up with a wall of sound. PRetty cool journey.

You've outdone yourself.
Fantastic. Sounds like an immense amount of work, but worth it. The guitars sound great. Even though it's dense, every part can be heard clearly. Really impressive.

Superb Sir!
Superb... It was said above... Dense yet sparse enough to hear everything going on. That is a real feat when you have as much going as you do in this.

Everything sounds great. Nicely balanced and all the levels sound wonderful! A real treat in the Bose headphones!
