mathis - track one - neighbour forgotten like a silent ray

I've completed the first track from my mathis project; the track is entitled neighbour forgotten like a silent ray. I may still do some more remixing (it sounds a bit muddy in places), but I'm generally pleased with the result.

For this track, the sound sources were squashed versions of every track on my Johnny Mathis album. Basically, I compressed each of the 18 tracks down to half a second (without changing its pitch), and reversed it. I then used these samples, along with a variety of effects, to put together the piece.

I'm releasing these pieces under an Attribution-Share Alike CreativeCommons licence (same as the rest of the content on this site).

Far out tune, mo-fo. Interesting sound source. It's either the baby causing sleep deprivation, instigating symphonic auditory hallucinations... or you are just a mentalist. Cool.

Cheers mister. That's the music that comes out of me. I love warped and broken noises. Johnny Mathis is a well of sonic opportunity.

By the way, my frigging blog thinks every legitimate comment is spam. I had to turn on the spam module, as well as captchas, as I was getting someone manually spamming loads of pages on my blog. Losers. Anyway, I've reinstated your comment.
