I dined at Denny's on egg whites, turkey bacon, fresh fruit and a slice of ham. I took Beatrice for a walk, during which she stared longingly at squirrels in trees. Then I created a new song using samples for the Secret Mixter regular event I was assigned Jason Brock's samples, who records on the Mixter as Spinning Merkaba. I used a curious electronic instrument called Noiser 1.0, which alters samples in unpredictable ways. I recorded and edited several Noiser passages, and then edited them in Audacity into a song. I was intrigued by the result, a somewhat unconventional pastiche that nonetheless vaguely resembles a song.
In the early evening, I went to Green Park near my home, where I got some good pictures of a singing male House Finch. Then we headed out to Silver Thai, where I had monsoon rolls with tofu and spicy bah-mee soup. It was a good day.
