Re‧mi Do
‧ an affirmation to my daughter
‧ the first three notes of the famous musical signal from the film Close Encounters of the Third Kind
‧ three key signature areas (re for D/D-flat, mi for E major/minor, and do for C) where songs in the mix are grouped together. I’ve used the technique of harmonic mixing/selecting to unite or contrast songs.

The copyrights for these recordings are the intellectual property of the artists, though the corporations take the credit and the money. I own nothing. Support music.
