These past couple days have been Reich days. I checked out the 10-disc retrospective of Steve Reich's music from the library and I'm almost done listening to disc 10 right now. I'll try to post my thoughts on the set and particular songs tomorrow. In my quest for more familiarity with modern composers, I also wanted to check out the 10-disc boxed set of John Adams, but the library seems to have lost it (like the fifty other odd CDs that "just don't seem to be on our shelf anymore"). I'm not sure how you lose a 10-disc set -- it's not like you can hide it behind another CD or run it over with your car without noticing, but I guess when you work in the library, anything's possible.

Here's another revamped MIDI theme which I finished last night -- The Llama Fanfare (MP3, 734KB). Oldtimers will recognize it as the theme song from this website from 1996 - 1998. New visitors would hear the entire fanfare, while repeat visitors would be welcomed back with a personalized greeting and one of four short variations on this theme (thanks to clever use of cookies).

I was doing a little tinkering with the code of my puzzle applet yesterday, so for kicks, here's a puzzle for Mike. Click on any tile next to the white space to move it
