Tonight we went to San Miguel,the pleasant Tex-Mex restaurant in McKinney. A man played Paul Simon songs on a harp while I ate cheese enchiladas. Then I came home and did a remix of a Australian soundscapes with a drrum line and with the lovely voice of Calendar Girl, whose a capella passages are a pleasure with which to work. CCmixter just installed new way to link to the resulting song, "October (Jungle Mix)" in a player, so I'll try copying the link here:

October (Jungle Mix)".

The remix uses samples from:

Drum Session by: Michael Hoffmann
KBTS guitar by: admiralbob77
October by: calendargirl
16-bar blues solo by: Klausgena
cfe.reverse() by:
and several tracks from:
Lori Beckstead & Dave Rose
“Winanga-li: Australian Soundscapes”, which is available for free download on a BY NC SA basis from the excellent netlabel
Creative Commmons BY NC.

My goal was to use the sounds of the jungle without to approximate the jungle within.

I pondered if the French brought pralines to Mexico, or whether Mexico brought pralines to the world.

I play Scrabble, and I am in danger, someday, of learning to win a game or two.
