I worked a very long and productive day, thanks to the help of people who came through at the end of the day.
My wife had a meeting, so I had a pho on the way home. After watching some television, I did a new remix at ccmixter.org. Then I morphed a gorgeous female voice from a lute-playin' band into MIDI, and then told the MIDI to play it back as a vibraphone. Then I morphed it in my sample Slicer, and now I type as a vibraphone sounds a vaguely Hitchcockian somber note.
