Re: Scared of MIDI

Hi Gary,

I was playing some atmospherics before the opening of a performance of the
play, The Ramayana. The house lights were on, and people could freely come
and go... I had a nice cloud moving around and inserted a few bleeps and
blips. One guy in Indian garb comes up and says, "That's the lonliest sound
I've ever heard... "  Another time a woman commented that my music was like
the lowing of cows. Both interesting and funny observations. No money
