Furthermore, I agree with what has been said about the radio framing; nice idea.

Good stuff, hope to hear more from you.

It does sound playfully dark, like something out of a Tim Burton movie. It fits the idea of an asylum inmate slowly losing it. The idea with the radio intro and outro was really cool. A bit short, but very enjoyable.

Amazing, man. I really like it. A good take on a classic tune. Has a sort of a Danny Elfman feel about it. I would have loved for it to be longer, of course!

Great remix! I don't know if it necessarily fits my memory of that cave, but what a great mix. I cannot get enough of it. Totally unique. The orchestration sounds really great too, imo. Also I like that it is sort of sassy.

I love this so much that I can't even use my words.

Read the description about dear old Betty as the track started. Thought, "Oh, how cute, with the radio thing!"

Then came the transition. Literally got the chills. It was awesome.

I've always found the very beginning of the source material to be suitably mysterious and potentially frightening, but felt it was a bit too fast to be properly discomfiting. This piece didn't slow it down but still fixed that issue, and made it absolutely creepy.

I'm not a huge jazz fan, either; it has to be pretty light for me to not notice/not care/actually like it. But what was here really worked, and the swing bits were a good inclusion. I guess what I'm saying is that nothing overwhelmed anything else except where it was needed to give the sense of someone who's a little disconnected and whose memory isn't as reliable as one would hope.

Very well done.

Approach style realizing it is oneself being approached, and turn from popular devices of style—all mannerisms, tricks, adornments. The approach to style is by way of plainness, simplicity, orderliness, sincerity.
