Set in Sand

Sometimes a piece of art is so inspiring, you want to get inside of it. If its audio, one way to attempt to crawl in is to remix it. If your lucky enough to know the artists, you can hound them for the raw files. My friends Set in Sand had a track that inspired the hell out of me. I am still spending time inside deciding what to do with it but I also love the point it is at. I received 108 raw tracks from them and when I lined them up, it was already pretty beautiful as is. Just some absolute minimal tweaking followed by my good friend Krista and I singing harmonies over the original lyrics and several tracks of Piano. I like the state that it is in now because the original track is made of heavily edited, sliced and meticulously placed audio and our parts were laid down as long raw parts with no editing and the juxtaposition is nice. I plan on doing acoustic drums but they will certainly get editing as I feel am not a good enough drummer to play something fitting for this track by simply beating on drums. I need Mr. Computer’s help sometimes. Below is the track.
