Prélude à l’après-midi d’un Morlock

I’ve been spending practically my entire working afternoon trying to record a two-minute intro for the Audible version of Blood of Ambrose, after a couple of days of false starts due to technical snafus. (Until this megillah started, I had no idea that standard microphones won’t work with Macs, which need a powered mic or a USB mic.) Then there were the Audacity issues… Anyway:

I finally got a version which didn’t seem too scary bad, and I loaded it into iTunes to give it a listen. (Verdict: An “Eh” for effort.) The next track in the iTunes library began to play right afterwards: Debussy’s “Prelude to an Afternoon of a Faun.” It sounded horribly wrong and, at the same time, somehow right. The next track was Jane Krakowski singing “Run, Rudolph, Run” which was more in the “Totally Wrong” category.
