09|11|10   New Mix of Distance called Distance in Simplicity

So, last year Richard Allen, a reviewer for The Silent Ballet, basically ripped me a new one for “marring” an otherwise potentially blissful song called “Distance” with relentless chatter, writing this:

“As my secretary told me, ‘the music’s nice – very relaxing.’ But the people just won’t shut up. (…) nine minutes of stumbling, echoed conversation between a man and a woman who whine, accuse and try to come to some understanding about their relationship. And in this piece, the music doesn’t even start for two minutes!”

Ha. Well. So yeah. I always thought Richard was a tad harsh, but – in all fairness – I took his point. There’s artistic, and then there’s pretentious, and I might have straddled that line a bit too much :).

Here it is then… a brand new mix of “Distance” without all the conversation (or vocoder). Trimmed, edited, re-mixed, and re-mastered. Simplified.

Really hope you enjoy it (and end up sharing it!).

If you want to get your hands on the original version, you can download the whole Split EP called “Together” (featuring The Enright House and Pushmi-Pullyu) for free here.


Yay! Check out the new Enright House Shop I just finished making! Even if you’re not the type of person who buys music anymore, do take a look at how pretty and shiny it is! :)

    Though I do not think the track needed to be changed (especially by giving credibility to a review I find entirely too harsh), I do believe in new Enright House material.

    I’ll cherish this with all my other EH goodness, but I won’t listen to it with that review in mind.
