Sorry, I tried working on something for a little bit last night & this morning, but I couldn't get anything off the ground. I was working a shitload on other music and got burnt out. I can't get anything done today because I have plans for the entire day that can't be moved for this (believe me, I would if I could).

Really, though - there's still a few hours left so someone can take advantage of this time and make something! Love your track, by the way, Nase :)

Tragically I neglected to vote; crunch-time with work is harsh. But I'll make some comments a bit late anyway, if nobody minds:


The pitch-bend in the intro is a great way to start, it grabs my attention immediately. Nice minimal atmosphere, not too busy, not too sparse, just a simple laid-back interpretation. Too bad it's so short I'm sure it would've been interesting to see how it developed.


You know, pitch correction technology has been a staple of recording studios since the 1980s with Eventide hardware to the 90s with automated software like AutoTune/Melodyne and after hearing these silicon-injected female vocals for near 30 years it is always refreshing to hear a natural, sincere voice - especially one with a gentle, airy and dream-like tone such as this caressing my ears. Unexpected, but a pleasant surprise.


One inventive variation after another, a seemingly limitless supply of ideas resistant to the typical ABACBA/etc pop forms; the potpourri of styles preferring seriality, bound together cohesively by apt transmogrifications of melody. Whether intentional or not, the 'lullaby' concept takes on surprising depth when Dylan Thomas is invoked; as an atheist, biblical quotes about life and death are met with derision but poetry, especially beautiful poetry, cuts right through me without effort. This is the second time Nase has remixed one of my originals, and I am grateful for it.

Hopefully I've given an idea of how much I appreciate the entries, thank you all for participating
