A message from Philip Selway:

“It was great hearing ‘Beyond Reason’ taken in so many different directions. There was so much good work to choose from. The three winners really made the song their own and they stand up as pieces of music in their own right.”Philip Selway

  1. These are some comments received on Indaba platform:

    “I agree about the discord (super subtle micro tonal difference) between the guitar and strings. BUT, at the same time, it almost fits with the theme. I always like how you incorporate the ambient sounds, as well as your orchestral arrangements… Maestro!”

    “If I can only complain about one thing, it’s that the strings and guitar are not perfectly in tune. I had the same problem. It’s only cents, but it seems to stand out. But, really, that’s the only complaint!”

    “Nice instrumentation,guitar could be just a tad higher in the mix (still on the back as it is but with just a bit more presence).Strings,fluty and whatnot are blending very good with the vocals,mainly,and the guitar.Percussion arrangement is clever,sparse and giving some tension when needed.Nothing’s overdone,i enjoyed the whole thing,great job ;)”
