Another progress recording, with another month or so of practice and a 16-day practice streak. The concert where I am playing this is next week. I'm hoping to lock in a little more speed between now and then (although I note I seem to have…read more

Another of [Ronnie's Mixed Bag](http://rekkerd.org/) samples (this one called `120_hollow_01`) and another version of my Reichenbach ensemble for Reaktor. The major difference here is the addition of playback modes and, in this case, the *slicer…read more
