I then either use them quite liberally with whole sections or takes used. Others are more like puzzles with a lot of splice and manipulation of pitch and tempo and order. I always try to make the end result somehow work like live music. It's not. But it sure sounds like it ought to be if all goes well. I try to list every track taken with a name. I'm sorry if the music is disagreeable using something of 'yours', that obviously isn't the intent- otherwise, thank you so much for whatever you've contributed to this music. The intent is to create the illusion of a live band always, to what degree that flies, varies always, but that's ideally music for me.... never one same thing- I like to challenge my ears and mind and if it sounds cool, well, all the better.
