Thanks. Rather limited now, no sound system, no proper software, just using Garageband on an old iMac. So I’m glad it sounded OK. (Used basic flat chords, A & B, and played off the Cs and Ds for the melody. Guess that might sound quarterish? Mostly pleased that 7/4 time seemed to work…

This sounds very crisp through headphones, and I like how you have the different instruments spread between the left and right channels. I’m also digging the quirky melodic sequences. (Are you using quartertones?)

No pic small

Digging it! Rock on. I would be adding a chant with this with cool harmonies…

“…used to treat schizophrenia (including adolescent schizophrenia), schizoaffective disorder, the mixed and manic states of bipolar disorder, and irritability in people with autism.”

Warning – listening to this mix down may cause weight gain, diabetes, and death in people with dementia. :D

A powerful, mind-bending mix of sounds. It gets under the skin. Righteous!

Out of nothing is eventually generated something – that’s how we all got here, right? So 6-6=1, if you give it time – except there was no time-space continuum before the Big Bang… I’m confused, what were we talking about again? Oh yeah, another cool compilation of delightful sounds, mixed down in a marvelous fashion.

Sultry – hot, attractive, passionate – and jazzy smooth.

There’s a ‘60s Motown flavor to this one, while yet clearly wrapped in a Collective Noun sound. It’d be interesting – to me, anyway – to hear a vocal track to some of these groovy mix downs.

There‚Äôs a bit of darkness in you, no doubt. But greys are colors too, right? Well, I’m no color tech, but I dig the shade of this number.

Again, it is that busy bass that delights me most. You’re a very talented percussionist as well. And your gift at the keys is a psychedelic one. But you know your way around the guitar neck as well. Fabulous.

At first I thought I was hearing a bass line that could have backed up Bob Dylan or Jimi Hendrix on “All Along the Watchtower,” but the guitar and keys kicked in and took everything to another dimension. And the keys and guitar blend so magically together. Colorful! Happening!

That’s some impressive percussion work! Fun keys, interesting bass, wicked scale on the guitar. You are having a blast putting all these tracks together, I can tell. Digging your talent at performing on these instruments and at mixing down and mastering the sound.

This would make for great background music in a James Bond movie.

I especially dig the bass runs in this one – I love me some busy bass, but this one really gets around!

a bit dark, a bit jazzy, a bit funky – not too much of any one thing, but a nice blend of various seasonings. A very professional, tasteful compilation.

I hear this and in my funky mind I see vampires, werewolves, and zombies dancing together in a lonely street under the light of the full moon. Come on, that scene would be as groovy and trippy as it would be scary, no? Again, Rock on!

A chicken corndog would give me the Blues! Reminds me of the Deep Purple-era of Rock music. Digging the drums, bass, keyboards, and guitar. Power! Rock on!

I’m digging the far out oriental scale, the Asian rhythm and the selection of instruments. Tribal and hypnotic and comforting. You’re not stuck to one genre – that is so refreshing. I dig broadness in music and an expansive mind!

A excellent, fabulous composition and mix down of sweet sounds. Tasteful panning and volume control. Mastering is at least half the art of a fine recording.

I dig your style, your timing, your taste and feel for what you do.

Dark, yet tasty, like chocolate. And its brevity would make it perfect for a Gothic TV show’s theme song.

Funkilicious! Great groove. Slick and smooth.

Dig the build-up. From a simple classic, laid-back folk sound, “Gone” expanded and evolved into something more sophisticated, colorful, and flavorful. Great compilation – Rock on!
