boards of atonalis
once again, great one. the slow tempo reminds me of some boards of canada, for some reason. poetry can be glitchy, for sure, I nearly cried.

Distanced
This is very nice stuff, especially your backing accompaniment. Really
nice sonic choices on your part. There is something dull about the vocal
performance, tho, that distances me from the content (in my subjective
ears). Don't know if the distortion on her voice is adding to this
disaffection on my part; I thought maybe coming out of the distortion at
some point (or fading into it at some point) would have been more
affecting. But I think it is more in her delivery, which sounds like reading
as opposed to emoting in a spontaneous way. Still, a cool track that I
enjoyed. I dig all your experiments and look forward to hearing each new
track you share.

Sorry I havn't caught up with your stuff recently...
Here I am back again and once again, some very interesting music
again.

Unfortunately, I'm quite the same with poetry/lyrics and the like. I sort
of hear them but don't really pay attention to what they're saying... be
that as it may though, the music you've done for this fits very well with
the sound of the poetry. I'm still not sure what the lyrics are actually
saying, but both the music and the tone of the poetry reading give me
the impression of lonliness/lethargic/apathy... I think its mostly the
monotonish sound of the voice and how the music keeps almost
slowing down alot... like you're just to tired to play in time.

The only real critism I have for this is something I used to mention with
your earlier pieces thats bugging me a little with this. The placement
of foreground/background parts in this music doesn't quite sit right
with me here. Vocals are the part of any music that the mind just
naturally focuses on... but throughout the piece there are many
'background' elements that are louder and seem drier (less reverb) than
the vocals... particulary the harpsichord. It also doesn't help that the
harpsichord is also centered in the mix... feels like its competing a
little with the vocals.

Anyway... nice work again, I'll try and find the time to comment on
some of the stuff I've missed soon I promise!

Up front
Instead of laying down a long musical opening, I'd like to see the first line of the poem ("I want to live with you in some imaginary wood/among stones with their reddish wounds ...") moved up to the front, and letting the music flow out of those lines. I just think this would be a much more dramatic way to open this project, while also instantly locking the soundtrack and the poem together as a unity.

I think the music and the words fit well together. Nice job at producting this. It's been worth listening to again and again, discovering new elements on each run through.

There's lots of wonderful lines here, like "I will dance like a priestess ... in the back country of your forgotten mind." The reading is articulate. However, it would be helpful if you would post the poetry in the lyrics box.
