Why not, indeed.

Distant voices / scratchy voices —most compelling; thanks.

Well then, looks like we’ve started an inspiration feedback loop. I’ll be trying again 8/30 if anyone is with me.

BTW this is one amazing piece of work. The bar is raised too high, and I can’t see it anymore. Next time ‘round I’ll just stroll right under it.

“meeting of the Beatles and Trent Reznor” —and “this is the trailmix i want to bring with me through the circles of hell” OMG!! These are such flattering comments! Thank you! :-) and thank you for coming along for the ride through bittersweet purgatory; do not forget to buy a postcard!

where’d my comment go??? i compared you to a meeting of the Beatles and Trent Reznor. but with a genius of all your own.

i am zero percent surprised that you, off all people, could make so much fresh and awesome music in 24 hours.

something is so Beatles about this. i imagine Paul collaborating with Trent Reznor. i hope you don’t mind being compared to other artists. other geniuses.

the thing i really really really really love about the chord progression is the last chord of each phrase in the chorus. how it goes THERE, instead of There.

this is the trailmix i want to bring with me through the circles of hell.

Plenty of very good melodic and harmonic ideas. It must have been the perfect flow.

@ kirk, look forward to finding out which ones are your faves! Thanks again for listening… I’ll try to get these individual tracks up soon, once I attempt recovery ;-)

Also till can’t believe that all of you pulled off this quality in 24 hrs. I practically crucified myself over a damn track less than a minute and half long!

I’ll be looking forward to new versions of the individual tracks. I definitely had my favorites from within the 24 minutes

glu said

Thank you to all who took the time to listen and comment. I’ll soon post newer versions of each track (separately). I hope it was an enjoyable twenty-four minutes. cheers.
