I think...
I think was the soundtrack to my dream last night...
This is, how do you say on your planet - very sklorb!
This piece made me grow hair on my eyes. I loved it!

This is a really nice collaboration, the synths, guitars and
ambient vocals work really nicely

who are these people?
sounds like you've been playing together for years. loving
the blends that occur throughout the song-the way the
guitars work around the bassy syths, or the wailing vocals
follow the guitars.. & how everything can converge for a
sec, then continue to fly on by. synchronicity

it still feels like it needs something on top, like there's
more room that's just not being used. i would like to hear
a more dominent layer of vocals & maybe a grindier guitar
riff to drive it (pass mysti the mic, boys-sounds like you
kept her in the closet!)

Enjoyed the Bass Heavy Mood
However, it seems such a shame to have Mysti's
contribution to any song limited to what's the equivalent
of a string synth part.
The overall integration of parts was very well done - it
doesn't sound like a bunch of sound files being passed via
iChat and thrown together. ;)

Excellant
collaboration. I hear fusion music with many textures. I
enjoyed Mystifieds haunting vocal, and Alimars jaco
pastorius type bass playing and the playful exchanges
between the guitars and bass. The composition will
delight jazz/prog music lovers!

Very cool bass work
This is a very smooth concept sound. I was initially
disappointed that Peter wasn't singing, since I dig his
voice and thought he and Alimar would make a great
duet. (Consider adding lyrics?) Altho it is very well
performed and mixed, everything sounds like a
wonderfully rich music bed waiting for the lead voice to
take it to a more compelling level, like a film score that is
not trying to be too intrusive. Mystified's vocals are
gorgeous, reminding me even more of sountracks from
the 70s. I was surprised this was a MJ-United project, too,
since the last projects invited dozens to join in.

Put 'em in a blender!
Mix on high, and pour out ! Pretty cool collab!

Needs more of Mysti's Lyrical talents, but pretty cool otherwise!

Lots of nice guitar stuff in there, like that. I can hear those
voices again. Those high vocal sounds really are kool.

great going

odd progressions
interesting resolutions, quirky percussion, ethereal Myst...
just a little abstract for me. It was rather interesting, but
not as cohesive as I like my music to be, sounded like you
were trying things out without a specific direction in mind.
On the positive side, despite it meandering a bit overall,
each of the parts fit in very nicely together. I agree on the
killer-tight collaboration, it was as if I was listening to
veteran band members who had played together for years.
Guitar playing, synths, sfx, vox, were nicely interwoven.
That was great about this!
ttfn,

Clarification
Sorry, first I said it wasn't as cohesive as I like, then I said it was a tight
collab... What I really meant by that was that the overall piece did not seem to
have a cohesive message, it meandered... but the individual performers were
great, and the mixing/editing into a whole was masterful... its just the result
was a bit fluffy and abstract, more of a nimbus than a cumulous... but that's
just my ear. :-) Sorry for not being cohesive in that last message!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Hats off
for this arrangement. Great composition! All the players
play/sing wonderfully within the structure. I like all the
interesting twists. It reminds me of those cool '70s fusion
pieces by Return to Forever, sans instrumental
pyrotechnics.

Sci-fi lullabies
Really good mix of sounds and a great composition.
Would have liked to have heard the ethereal vocals a bit
further up in the mix and maybe the guitar a bit further
back (the playing is really cool though!). Very nice
collaborative effort

Bass Ackwards
the question is... can you play it live?

Very imaginative... it's sounds quite different from the
early version I heard. Cool concept... especially the
backwards guitars, etc.

Glad to see you finally found a place for Synco to show off
that pink thong.

Bass Ackwards
Hehe. In my case, no, I couldn't play my guitar parts live, at least not without
sitting down and really practicing them. I had to do the guitar tracks in short
sections to get them right because I was playing beyond my normal ability.
Alimar's base melody structure posed a real challenge for me and made me try
things I'd never done before. Always good to push it.

In late on this
Been outta town, just now getting around to listening to
this cool piece. My only suggestion is to bring Cat up in
the mix, she seems a bit wasted. (You know what I mean.)

Excellent work.
