Winter's Song (Drowned World)

Author Comments

This is a newer one, and one of my favorites. It's a remix of a classical guitar piece called "Winter's Song" by Kaimialana. Add some whales, David Blaine, a Scottish computer reciting poetry... It's sort of a bizarre, experimental sound collage, but I think it really came together as a unified whole.

Kaimialana, on hearing the remix, said "It feels like winter, if winter was a desolate technological wasteland... I love how you edited in the different parts, and I love how it calms down at the end. This isn't something I could listen to often, but man, its got SOMETHING to it."


The frozen testicles of winter

Very minimalist, but the sounds themselves are of a high enough quality to stir around your head and innards a bit. Kind of like Kaimialana said, like winter in a technological wasteland. I wish the guitar could have jumped out more in the mix though.

After 4 minutes into it, that's when it gets pretty interesting. It's like walking through dark alley in a crowded city, with televisions everywhere, and elevated trains in the distance. The whales are pretty cool. hah

The edit at 9:01 is really obvious though, just so you know.

I really liked this piece though, very atmospheric. Voted 5, added to favorites.

Thanks for the great review! I love your description of walking through the crowded city. I can totally hear that.


It's little slow (to me, at least) up until the 8:00 mark (although I did really enjoy all the crazy percussive sounds) and then the voices start, then the whales start, and then there's that haunting pseudo-melody... Beautiful. Then I hear football commentary with a spooky harmony under it? Genius...

4/5, 9/10

Thanks for the review! Glad you liked it.

The football commentary is actually an announcer at a David Blane stunt, where Blane is attempting to break the record for holding his breath underwater. (He failed.)
