Here's a rough draft of a new text-based piece. Most of the text comes from the web. I googled the phrase "the world is a noisy place" and found some great stuff. If you don't listen to the whole thing, please at least skip forward to the canon at the end (starts around 5:30). I found a way in AudioMulch to perform this little ditty live, and that's how I recorded this section. It's awfully simple musically but I'm proud of it nonetheless (intonation problems and all).
