It's enough like the original that it felt familiar but different and interesting enough to make me want to listen to the whole thing all the way through.
that was what i had in mind when i was making the remix. something a little more original, but not so different that no one could tell that it was a remix of Canon.
thanks for the review! glad you enjoyed the song! :)

Liking the intro a TON!!! you got so much potential in your future!
The little filler around 1:40 is pretty cool but could use some pizazz! Add some more EQ detail and more lead structure or detail! :D
great work though man!
-keep it up!
p.s. check out my song jupiter jump if you got the time! ;)
thx for the review! will be sure to check out your song :)
Guitar made this track great!
Basically agree with what was said below... but the guitar really stood out to me!
I'm not sure about the voices though... well the robot one at least.
Good work on this!
thanks for the review :)
It was just by chance that I stumbled upon this piece you've engineered. I was really impressed with the quality of the mixing and balance. I would like to start off by saying THANK YOU for not maxing out the sounds so many people have the tendency to do. The volume and balance was well maintained throughout the piece. And you were still able to add dynamic changes. The first technical thing that caught my attention was the percussion intro in the beginning. It fit well and was again, well balanced with the other instruments. Good use of panning and fading effects as well as other parameters you used to adjust sound. The section leading into 1:50 is an example of what I'm talking about.
One thing I didn't particularly care for was the hi hat or cymbal sound that played from 1:50 - 2:18. I thought it was a harsh sound and didn't fit well with everything else going on. In addition the panning effect you used on the hihat was distracting.
I liked the use of piano around 3:30. Good base to keep your remix focused around. The synths were balanced to perfection in this section and I enjoyed the driving base line. The guitar sound at the end was a nice touch as well. I enjoyed the reverb you added to the guitar sound. Made it sound like I was in a large concert hall and then it just began to float on air. The ralentando at the end was nice, I think it would have been more effective without the piano playing with the guitar. Ralentando's should flow very smoothly and the piano made it sound very precise which, in my opinion, it shouldn't be.
I also enjoyed the voices in the beginning. Good use of echo in the voices as well.
Well that's about all from me. It's hard to make a remix without it sounding too similar to the original. This piece you've created struck a nice balance between originality and reminiscence. You did a nice job of maintaining the original theme of the piece, but it was more of a side note. Your remix was brought to the fore-front, which I really appreciated and enjoyed.
Thanks again for taking the time to balance, mix, and master the sound of this piece. It really showcases your skills as a musician and makes me appreciate this so much more. You have gained my respect for sure. I hope to hear more from you sir.
