Description
I had done quite a while ago and it is uploaded to macjams. This though is a collaboration with Tadashi Togawa. I am blown away with is unique way of composing. When I heard his 42 samurais I was taken back the way he uses his sounds especially the oriental approach to percussion. This is a real treat for me to have Tad on this piece!

Thanks much Tad !

Here is what Tad describes about what he added;
I added flute, synthesizer, drums, and percussion instrument.
Flute is an impression of Japan.
Synthesizer is an impression in the future.
Drums is a collision of the culture.
Percussion instrument is distortion of time.

Swept away
I really like the collision of this calm guitar soundbed with the fast, almost
crazy percussion. The way the drums stopped suddenly really worked. For
me, anyways...
The flute was a nice touch.
Your playing, tiler, is terriffic as always.
You guys make a heck of a duo.
Fav'ed, DL'ed - almost instantly.

AWESOME!
Wow, you guys really put together something good! Love everything
about it... Your guitar, and the synths and percussion reminds me a bit
of "Firefly".

Very interesting combo
I like this new version for the most part. It's an interesting and unusual
combination. I think it works very well, at least up until about 03:40 into
it when the percussion just sort of goes haywire. That bizzare fit of
drumming doesn't seem appropriate to the music. But then things go
back to being very cool through to the end. So other than that drumming
bit I really like what Tadashi added to this piece of yours.

very cool guys....very cool

interesting blend of sound, style and culture. Tiler, I have a tadashi
piece I'm working on...his sense of blues is coming from a differefnt
direction, and i am having a difficult time of it. Tadashi is one of my
favorite MJers..always so creative and energetic

great stuff guys!!!

Great combination
of talents here. Excellent musicianship all around. I really dig Tadashi's additions; the flute and synths in particular. I love that hyper drumming in the middle, but I tend to agree with Peter that it's a little much for this song. Very beautiful tune.

Wow
Wow, you really got that good going together at places.

Places I especially enjoy:
- The guitar harmoics part, especially in the beginning ...
- The groovy part, drum set together with guitar ...
- When the flute comes, and when it is echoed (could have been more of
it though) ...

Oooh....
This is a fine collaboration!
Really nice to hear the different depth and 'colors' that Tadashi's
additions have made to this piece.

Very nice! Thank you for this :)

Unexpected collaboration!
Two of my favourite MJers, from opposite ends of the musical
spectrum, together on one track - jiguma heaven! Great sounds from
you both - I totally love the drumming section - I've always wondered
what Bill would sound like with backup, but hadn't anticipated this sort
of backup! A very clever, surprising and rewarding mix of styles and
cultures - excellent!

Bzzz It's Good!
The use of drums more as an instrument than rhythm was very
appealing and added to the stature of this already great song!

Thank you very much
Bill,
I was able to participate in your wonderful tune and was happy.
Very good melody.
Very good playing of guitar.
Moreover, the composition of the tune was cultural.
I am very honored to participate in your tune.
Thank you very much.

Thank you very much
Thanks tad, I sure had fun with this. Some of that stuff you do is so neat to my
ears and never even new that those neat percussion tricks ever existed. Let
alone the incredible new age sounds. Even down to the last drop. I hope people
can listen to that neat tune you do at the end. Man that is cool to my ears!

Thanks Tons Tad!

Great Flow
That was some very nice guitar, and then the percussion near the middle
is awesome. I really liked the transition to the almost second part, but I
wouldn't call it a second part because it flows wonderfully.
