Random Thing #1: I decided to use some SuperCollider stuff because Sam is one of the power-users of SC3. Since I "appropriated" his sounds, I felt an uncommon urge to SuperCollide. One of the more extended SC3 passges I synthesized is at the end. I used my original, ancient granulatarize app to do the granular-synth sounds that finish the piece. "granulatarize" is the first SC app I wrote.
Random Thing #2: The little java-thing that overlays the picture of the sum and difference CD on the page adds only "+"'s. I'm trying to maintain a positive outlook, har har har.
I finished the piece just as we began to receive reports of the horrible earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The mega-bass and abrupt ending of the piece seened appropriate in some small way.
