Year of the Ox

Hello, 2009! Year of the ox! Year of work! Year of staying up late and getting up early. Year of nights and weekends. Year of noses and grindstones. Year of always produce. Year of there’s no wind out here, so we’d better row.

FYI, one of the key tools here is a feature in Ableton Live that lets you slice up an audio clip -- part of an old Hindi song, in this case -- and then play it like an instrument. Different keys trigger different sections that you've defined; so you reorder them, stack them up in weird ways, find new patterns and combinations. It is a pretty awesome amount of fun.

And what Hindi song would that be? Loved it.
