Hi Ken,

Finally watched some thread links. Those machines kicking it
Radiohead-style w/array of disk drive speakers was nice!

As a side note & more OT, & I hope not too disappointing to you in
some way, I love your little synth piece, monosynthfun2-withb3.

When you posted it, I think you said you'd just knocked it out & felt
you'd played a bit sloppy or s/t, but I've listened a lot & love it.
To me, the piece has such a weirdly dreamy melancholy aspect that I
find it completely compelling & works as solo instrumentation. & w/a
nod to the b3, you managed a great sound & nice touch. I like
everywhere the song goes in the 2 or so minute duration. Wish I could
play 1/10th as well.

Actually, I didn't intend to say more than that that song's a mad
little pleasure for me.
Hi Luke,

Thanks for the link. I think I like the visuals on this more than the
piece. I've never quite fathomed Queen. But after a few listens I'm
starting to like this version.
& Hi James,

Thanks, too. I didn't know of her. Great sound & like the hardcopy
scores born w/the music. I'll check out s/stuff she has on myspace.
