Sigh. Refreshing.
Hmm. Definitely like the new strings. The drums have a little bit more presence also.

More "Crisp"

Love it.

Oh, I know it's synthed or sampled or something...
...but I really like that acoustic guitar thing that plays against the more obvious synthy and keyboard-y elements...

I don't think I heard this in its first incarnation. It's lovely...

Ed
MissChaos said 3724 days ago (June 8th, 2007)
thanks Ed
That's a very reassuring comment. Of course I struggle with my limited abilities, including the inability to play and record acoustic guitar (one of my favorite instruments). So I toy with the idea of letting the synthesized version sound deliberate rather than trying to hide it. The verdict's still out on that one, though I know I'm not fooling anyone with it. :-) My synth guitar is much better than my air guitar. :-) Thanks again!

Very nice
Reminds me of some of the vibes on the Play album by Moby (and also of Mysti and mine's 'The Sound and Shape of the Words')

I would love to hear the original...is that possible?
MissChaos said 3724 days ago (June 8th, 2007)
Hey Brin
Thanks so much for your comments. Yeah, that's not the first Moby comparison I've heard on this song. It's a good possibility I was influenced by that album as I discovered it before the conception of this tune. I have to go listen to the song you mentioned here... Oh, and the original is streaming from a few other sites as well as iTunes Stores, Napster & Rhapsody (anyone use that one anymore?) Thanks!

i think the last time i critiqued this song, i rec'd my first email from missC-how life has changed since then ;)

to my ears, this version retains (& builds on) the emotive quality of the original, this time offering a more joyous & positive mood, & forecasting a wealth of happy days on that endless horizon ahead..

beauty. love tha new beat

An excellent sounding mix...
This mix is full of all the sound goodies that I enjoy.

It's make-up is firm yet delicate and the sweeping sounds and keyboard sounds fit together so well.

Presence without pretence.

The musics' 'new life' has set it free.

Brilliant.

The silence at the end was the only disappointment.

Take care.

Paul.

drakonis said 3724 days ago (June 8th, 2007)
Oh the dilemmas...
You've put me in a tough place here, MissC. You've gone and mucked with one of your best pieces! Now I feel compelled to critique... some of this will be simply because I've listened to your iTunes version of this a lot and am used to it, and others are more objective... if one can be objective on such an emotional piece.

So, first the bad. It sounds like in some places you have a phaser effect applied to either the whole mix or at least to a number of instruments, which gives a "muddy" or "distorted cassette tape" feel to those little spots (near the beginning of the piece). It was noticeably disorienting in headphones. The increased tempo reduces some of the melancholy punch that this piece had, although it is hinted at at the very very end, where it sounds like you slowed back down. The increased presence of the drums also detracts some from the gentle quiet introspective nature of the original piece. It's more in-your-face now... which might be OK in parts, maybe fade the drums out more often? At this faster pace, the strings sound more synthy, they don't keep up well, or you didn't spend time tweaking their attack to sound more realistic.

Good parts:
-countermelodies in strings better, I like the extended notes here and there that create anticipation.
-the drums sound awesome in the mix, whole mix sounds richer.
-the piece is longer? It sounds like you added some stuff, so I can revel in a it a little more before it ends.
-the ending was very nicely done, good shift of pace and instruments, pauses, final soft note.

So overall, I'm afraid I don't like this one quite as much as your prior one, but I really like some of the elements, and think you are right, that with your even greater knowledge and talents now, you should work on this in some of the directions you are choosing. It is a very powerful piece of music... written by a great mama.

ttfn,
Drakonis

rest assured
It was not my intention to put anyone in a tough place. :-) I've added a little disclaimer up in the description because I truly don't want anyone to be disappointed. This mix does not replace the original. The original will always be untouched. This is just a derivative - Same skeleton, new skin. I felt compelled to create a new mix for many reasons - the least of which is that it's therapeutic for me.

A few things:
There are no phasers in this whatsoever. Other like-sounding effects? Yes, and only on one instrument, and deliberately so. You mentioned the drums effecting the gentle/quiet nature. Again, yes. Hence, the "mix" description. The point was to bring this up in mood. And the strings, well I wasn't trying to fool anyone. Same goes for the guitar timbre.

Glad you liked the new ending. I thought of it as a cinematic approach: the hint of more to come, and reflecting on just how far we can go beyond our difficult times.

It was fun taking this older tune and re-designing it. It felt like I was engineering something new from something old. The question for me was, "Can I change the mood of this song without interrupting the structure and flow?"

Anyhow, sorry for my long-windedness. I always appreciate the time you spend listening and feeling. I'm grateful, eduard. thank you!

What crystal clear definition you acheive in all the sounds produced.I like the meandering piano line - carries the rhythm along like a wheel in an engine.I love music that has a 'travelling without actually physically moving' to it - that usually means if you are travelling physically that it is the perfect music to play - like driving through the mountains at sunset,with a really good stereo system in your car/or in my case on my bicycle.Beautiful and perfect for a summer evening on a Friday night in the uk.

I've always loved this piece. Nice work on the remix. Definitely more sonic depth and wonderful choice of timbres. It's nice to hear another MissC work (even if it's a remix!) There is a nice balance between the originally melancholy of the original and the more upbeat and hopeful sound of the new version...

Lush - and I don't mean someone with an alchol problem
Outstanding details and very thoughtful orchestration. Great use of low-frequencies and sub-bass - very subtle in many places and well-balanced. The shelving and levels of the mix is really top-notch.

I think the impression of "muddiness" is a reaction to a few passages wherein the strings and synths cut out and the remaining instruments are generally affected as if by a lowpass filter. The disappearance of the "airy" frequencies changes the tonal character. I actually love production details like this and think the change works well.

Now go do something loud and rude! Have you heard "Declare Independence" off Bjork's latest? She claims to have approached it as a joke, but so far it's my favorite track on the album.

I could spend 14 hours on two measures -- and I can count on you to notice and comment on it. Thank you! Loud and rude may be next in the hopper for me. I will make a point to find and hear that Bjork tune!

...it's so full of feeling and expression, and it is undeniably "Miss Chaos."

This remix is just beautiful, too. It can be refreshing to take something 'finished' and look at it from a different point of view, and I love that you've given this song another perspective--one that is a little brighter, a little more brisk, a little more 'sparkly.'

:)

Fresh
I'm afraid I tend to listen to instrumental music "in the moment" and rarely remember a non-vocal piece longer than the proverbial goldfish and the castle ("oh look, a castle" swims around the bowl, "oh look a castle" etc, etc, ad infinitum!). I do however remember this one of yours - although the details are a little fuzzy.
I like this new version - there are lots of fresh things happening, but overall I like the uplifting tone/feel. Made my otherwise cold and dreary day ;)

Neil, I really do appreciate your thoughts here. I sometimes wonder how different my songs would be if I could: a. Sing well, and, b. Write lyrics. I'd probably have a whole new batch of things to obsess over, but also a whole new depth to my music. I'm awfully jealous of you singer/lyric writer types. :-) Thanks so much!

hmmm, new directions...
I really do like the old mix very much, and this is actually quite different in mood. Maybe this one should be 'Mama Smiles', because I think you really have a much more positive vibe in this one. It's like a character in a movie who begins in a bit of a struggle (Mama Cries - original), and by the end has conquered their problems - not without some sacrifice and pain along the way. (Mama Cries - new mix).

I'm not sure the drums need to be quite so loud at some points, although I like their presence. Other instruments are similar to your original, and very well placed.

I like your point about this being a derivative. I did a similar thing with Silk Brocade & Organic Silk last month. Sometimes there are just too many directions to travel with a fist full of musical ideas, so you have to take more than one trip.

MissChaos said 3722 days ago (June 10th, 2007)

Mama Smiles. I'm curious, as I will tweak this for a new album and because I really value your opinion, Do you think the overall volume of percussion is too loud? Or is it just the 'bass' parts? You said only certain parts -- so I'm wondering if lowering it overall would help or just tweak certain frequencies in certain parts. if you have time to elaborate great! if not, I still really appreciate your feedback. it is all considered tenderly. :-) Thanks, Kristine!

Utmost respect, ma'am!
Woweee! This is classy stuff. I haven't heard the original so I come to it from an unbiased viewpoint. The melody is beautiful and sits so comfortably on top of the much stronger and harder percussion ... quite a skill to combine the two so elegantly. The section in the middle where the strings come in is sweetness itself. I love the way you move so smoothly from the chirpy melodic to the heartachingly sad.

Really superb creativity and musicianship.

Free and peaceful but sad.
Your software instruments sound great and really work well together. That's probably the best fake nylon string guitar I've ever heard. The piano shimmers. The strings are obviously synth, but they work so well in your mix because it sounds like you pan two string tracks differently or something. This is a full, crisp mix that sounds wonderful in headphones. It's sort of grounded but totally soars above the clouds. Personally I wouldn't change anything. I love the swirling synth effects.

Such a fan of yours.

Your genre and talent are out of my league, but not so much that I can't enjoy it...a lot! I have no technical jargon or experience to give you any very specific comments. I like the liquid sounding drums. I'm amazed by the clarity of each "instrument" - I'm gonna attribute that to your mixing abilities. The song is stirring.

I didn't hear the original, so I can't make any judgment of "better" or "worse," not that I'd want to. I think it's a beautiful thing you got to create your new vision of this.

beautiful
gorgeous blend of classy piano and cool percussion. the sad strings add a wonderful depth to the blend. good variation in the different sections - the arrangement is thoughtful, and pays off. slashing strings near end were a nice choice. enjoyed your creation! anne

Really glad I stopped by t o hear this
Beautiful melody and production. I hear some of the Moby vibe that someone else mentioned earlier. Nicely detailed drum work and separation all around.

Uncanny somehow
It reminds me of a soundtrack for a lucid dream -- you know, where you're dreaming but you know you're dreaming and you can control what you do. I ALWAYS fly and this just sounds like what would be playing as I soar around.

Never heard the original so this comment is only about this new version.

This is excellent
never heard the original, so can't compare. I love this though. If those guitars are sampled or whatever they are they sound great. Good mix - although not sure about the opening (?) seemed to lag a bit for me and took a while to get going? Minor pick though, still a lovely tune. Will indulge myself in your back catalogue now - I say that on a lot of these posts - i discover a new great artiste on MJ's everyday:-))

Delightful
I really like how you go back and forth from the very real instrument voices, like the piano and the guitar sounds, then to more electronic sounds like the synthetic strings.

I also like the way the drums disappear for a while and later return. Gives other elements a moment to shine.

Nice melody and really beautiful, delicate treatment.

Thanks for sharing.
MissChaos said 3664 days ago (August 7th, 2007)
well thanks!
Really appreciate you listening, H.C.Machine. You're spot on about the weaving in and out of percussion -- I always like the songs that do this to let the ambient/atmospheric parts shine. Take care!

Mama cries
Very beautiful piece of music. I love the melding of acoustic instruments with the synth sounds. This has much more hope and joy in it than I was expecting from the title. Gorgeous piano playing. I'm definitely going to have to check out that album on iTunes!

Sorry, all - I'm confused
I love the new version of Mamma Cries, and I THOUGHT I had the original which I downloaded a few years ago from a site that you (Miss Chaos) gave to me. Reading over everyone's posts, I went to Itunes, no luck. I went to Real Player store and found the 2 albums. I listened to the "Horizon" version there, which sounded different than the above version, and I listed to another Mama Cries on the "Calm" album, and it was totally, completely different . . . a whole 'nuther tune altogether! I'm so confused!!! Anyway, LOVE LOVE LOVE the version I have, whatever the heck it is, and love the "Horizon" version, also. It's one of the most heart wrenching, beautiful pieces of music I've ever heard.
Kathy
PS: I don't visit this site much - my first time - so if anyone can clear up this mystery for me, I can be reached at fairoaksbowen@yahoo.com
