upgrading noise and noising noise

We upgraded my computer, which puts me in the position of downloading freeware and figuring out where my codes and boxes are to permit me to move software from one place to another. My prior computer will become my wife's computer, after a team of sibling scientists of the computer arts arcane determined that my usage demands require more memory, more vim, more vigour and more of just about everything.
I got the Slicer synthesizer to load onto the computer, along with some six or eight other freeware non-musician synths. But I'm still feeling the new-tinged pain of having .wav samples on one box, softsynths on another, and a kind of courting barrier separating them from proper networking thus far.

In the meantime, verian and I completed the first song in our collaboration, which collaboration we term The Thomas Nunnally Ensemble. verian wrote amusing "band copy" for it, which differs somewhat from the Downbeat Magazine, circa 1963 format I'd assumed we would use, and instead tells a right proper little autobiographical sketch about a Thomas Nunnally. This is in the fine tradition of such things, and which one is Jethro, anyway?

The resulting first song is quite different from anything that I would create on my own, and quite different from anything he would create on his own, which is as it should be. I have no idea what the title means. I'm pleased with the first result, and hopeful that we do a lot more.
