music down these links was made mostly from 2002 to 2004 on a
desktop PC running Cakewalk Home Studio 2002 (around $80); a few tracks
come from 2005 and 2019, made on related Sonar software. Everything
including the percussion parts was written out on staff then tweaked
for placement and velocity to get it off the grid. On the earlier
tracks, except for the occasional snippet of a wav file, all the sounds
are General Midi from whatever sound chip was on the card, a
Yamaha something possibly, or were cooked up on the included
virtual synthesizer; later pieces run more sophisticated but not
necessarily more useful plug-in samples. Nothing was "performed."
